So I was having a discussion with one of my new clients this morning.
She is ecstatic that she has lost 11.5 pounds in the first 2 week which is great considering she only needs to lose 30 or so.
Anyways she says, “you know what’s even better than that? The way that I FEEL!”
I agreed with her and said it is something people don’t realize until they experience it.
They don’t understand how crappy they feel and how it is related to what they eat and physical activity.
I said you feel great for a variety of reasons:
- you are losing weight so you have a sense of accomplishment while removing stress from procrastinating.
- by eating properly and eliminating certain foods you feel way better and have way more energy. Eating bad brings you down and sucks the energy out of you.
- doing physical activity naturally releases endorphins which are feel good natural hormones.
A lot of doctors claim that only 10% of people who are on anti-depressants actually need them. They claim that if they just ate properly and worked out then they would not need them. I agree with this 100%.
In fact a lot of doctors today are prescribing exercise instead of pills which makes total sense!
