Weight Loss and Diets! Are They Working for You?
By now many of us know that in the long run diets typically do not work. Many diets are successful in helping produce temporary weight loss and the short-lived good feelings that go along with them. However, from a physiological and psychological perspective most diets are doomed to fail. As a result, we have embraced a diet mentality that is insidious and often results in and encourages dieters to be in a constant war with their bodies.

The issue can simply be whittled down to this question, “Are you putting your life on hold until you lose weight?”
Many women tell themselves that when they lose the extra pounds, they will; begin dating, look for a new job, speak up to my husband, learn to dance, buy nice clothes… you get the picture.

If you want to put an end to uncontrollable food cravings and emotional eating it is important to understand the role of stress and learn how eliminate it.
Stress is a biological response experienced on encountering a perceived threat. The body releases hormones, predominantly cortisol and adrenaline, which help prepare it to take action, for example by increasing the heart and speeding up breathing. Many factors can trigger this Fight-or-Flight response, including dangerous situations and psychological pressures, such as work deadlines, exams, and sporting events.
This readiness to expend extra energy ideally passes quickly; however, some people find themselves in a nearly constant state of heightened alertness.

Change Mental Patterns to Release Excess Weight Forever
Are you tired of diets that do not work? Have you tried all the weight loss pills and medications or even considered surgery?
The good news is that you can achieve your perfect weight, naturally and easily... and stay that way, forever!
Most weight loss diets fail, as you may have experienced yourself. Even with those that seem to work, the benefits are often short-term, the weight coming back on a few months later.
