Fat 2 Fit Show #49 – Obesity System Influences


Written on December 8, 2008 – 1:35 am | by Jeff Ainslie

The Obesity MapAfter 48 shows of weight loss advice and information, we decided to clearly lay out our top 5 core beliefs about successful weight loss and living a healthy lifestyle.  When we offer advice or answer listener questions, we always fall back to these core beliefs.  Many times we are tempted to give the quick solutions that might have dramatic results in the short term, but these beliefs keep us on track. Our philosophy is all about changing your life so that you will never, ever go on a diet again.

In the Web Report, Jeff discusses an article about the possibility that obesity may be contagious. Russ talks about a study which shows that post workout snacks may do more harm than good.

Homework:
Start thinking about your New Year’s resolutions and goals. We are doing a show in a few weeks on how to set powerful goals that you can achieve next year. You don’t have to wait for New Years to set goals, but since everyone seems to at new years, we are going to give you a lot of help. In the next couple of weeks, start looking for areas in your life that you are dissatisfied with, then start coming up with a list of possible goals that are measurable on a daily or weekly basis. The bigger the list, the better. We will narrow these down later. And one last thing, you can’t just say your goal is to lose weight. Start listing specific goals that will help you achieve weight loss if that is the area that you want to improve. For example, taking four 30 minute walks per week, taking a lunch from home at least 3 days per week, or like one of mine last year was to eat an apple every day.
