So just to contradict myself...
STOP TRYING TO LOSE WEIGHT! Start focusing on your health and well being, eating healthy, exercising, becoming a healthier more energized version of yourself. The weight will come off as you start to heal!
Weight loss is NOT an equation of eat less exercise more. Nor is it the next fad diet. And from what I see in my practice everyday, unless you find the root cause behind the weight gain, most diets will fail, repeatedly, leaving you discouraged and disheartened.
Address the root cause.
But most of all, heal!
