Is dieting the right way to lose weight?

I’m sure you are thinking that this is a dumb question. “Is dieting the right way to lose weight?”

Well I think it is a good question. With a lot of Americans overweight there has to be something wrong with the way a lot of us eat. Some of us eat too much, or choose poorly on foods. We don’t get enough fruits and vegetables.

A large group of Americans think the way to fix there weight issue is to cut out foods. This is a good way in theory and may people do lose weight this way. However, I would like to propose that you should keep your diet and instead observe everything you eat. Ask yourselves more questions like am I really hungry? Do I want to eat this? Am I just eating because I’m mad or upset?

This is the concept of the book Super BrainĀ by Deepak Chopra, MD and Rudolph E. Tanzi, PhD

Instead of dieting observe yourself and what you are eating and after this observation you will start making the choices that are right for you.

Happy eating!

Stressful Monday’s

Stressful Monday’s seem to keep coming every week? Try some of these tips.

  1. Get more work done on Friday – One of the reasons you maybe stressed on Monday is that you didn’t get enough done on the previous Friday. Friday afternoons can be very important to wrap up the week and get ready for the next. Make sure you are using this time (3 to 5 p.m. on Friday’s) to get ready for that coming Monday and get organized!
  2. Sleep – You may have changed your sleeping pattern over the weekend. Which can lead to sleepiness on Monday. Make sure you keep your same sleeping pattern on the weekends as you do during the week.
  3. Diet – Fatty foods and sugary drinks are the norm for most Americans in the morning. Try to change your diet habits slowly over time to lean more towards fresh fruits, vegetables, and water.

Hope some of this helps you guys to combat these stressful Monday’s!
