I believe I have identified the one thing that is holding you back from being in your best shape ever.
Not too long ago, Dr Dave posted this question on his Facebook page, “What is the one thing holding you back from living your best life ever?”
There were a ton of responses and Dr Dave grouped these responses into four different categories. They are:
#1 – You have a “sweet tooth”
Sugar is extremely addicting. Dr Dave recommends completely removing sugar from your diet. There is no nutritional value and sugar may lead to excess weight gain, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. It is not easy to remove sugar from your diet but the best way to do it is to get rid of anything sweet from your home including soft drinks, candy, cakes, etc. Try fruits such as dates in place of sugary sweets. Over time, you will begin to lose the dependency on sugar and you will most likely begin to crave healthy foods like vegetables instead.
#2 – You love to eat
It is ok if you love to eat but that does not mean you have to eat junk. You can eat as much as you want as long as those foods are nutritionally dense and provide your body with the fuel that it needs. Transform your body with healthy foods instead of sugar and other empty calories. Do what you’re most comfortable with but make it as healthy as possible.
#3 – I lack consistency, time, motivation, etc to live healthy
YOU have to be the one to decide that today is the day to make the change. If you are not happy with your weight, appearance, health, whatever it may be, you can change it but you must want it to change. You have to get started and make the time. It will be difficult at first, but does get easier if you stick with it. Start in any way you can. Go outside or get on a treadmill and walk for a few minutes per day or more if possible. You don’t need a gym to get some exercise. Many exercises can be done at home with little to no equipment. If you continue to make excuses, your situation will never improve. Take advantage of any time that you may have. Get out there and do it! And you WILL see results!
#4 – I can’t commit
This is not a resolution – it is a lifestyle! It’s not something you take breaks from or do only on certain days of the week. You must be committed to health every single day. Are you going to do it? Are you going to commit? Your quality of life will improve so much if you make the commitment. Imagine where you could be if you start now? Don’t be the person that procrastinates!
