Welcome back! I know so many of you are eager to lose those unwanted pounds… I can tell from all of the emails I’m getting! I wish I could write everything I know that would help in one enormous blog post, but I can’t. I’d be writing for a very long time (I have so much to say on this topic). And, I think one of the best ways to accomplish your weight loss goals is to completely embrace the notion that this is your new life. It’s not you on a diet. It’s your new and awesome and improved HEALTHY LIVING and change like this is big… easiest taken on in chunks; hence, the weekly (or bi-weekly) Friday posts where you can chew on a little bit at a time. So, if you’re new to the series, be sure to read the past four parts in my Raw Food Weight Loss Series before diving into today’s discussion on calories!
In Part 4 of my series, I talked about the serious importance of stress and how it can sabotage your weight loss efforts. Have you been working on ways to reduce stress? It’s vital to your new lifestyle and efforts at losing weight. Even though it might not seem that we’re getting to the nitty gritty of weight loss by talking about stress and other issues, we are doing something very important… and that is building a foundation for not only LONG TERM weight loss but also effective weight loss through healthy living! What is the point of losing weight if you’re not going to keep it off?
What I’ve learned through my many years of research is that there definitely are some basics to successful weight loss. But, they only work easily and effectively when other things are integrated. The aforementioned “basics” is calories and that’s what I’m going to touch upon today. The “other things” are hormones, emotions, addictions, energy, fitness, and more. Very important aspects. VERY VERY! And, while I want to cover those issues first so you have a really solid foundation for your new healthy living… I know you are eager to see some weight drop right now! Ok! I get it. So… let’s get started and talk about calories with respect to raw food weight loss. [Read more…] about Raw Food Weight Loss Series – Part 5 – CALORIES
