'The fact that this is perennially among the most popular resolutions suggests just how difficult it is to commit to. But you can succeed if you don’t expect overnight success. "You want results yesterday, and desperation mode kicks in," says Pam Peeke, MD, author of Body for Life for Women. "Beware of the valley of quickie cures."
Also, plan for bumps in the road. Use a food journal to keep track of what you eat and have a support system in place. "Around week four to six...people become excuse mills," Dr. Peeke says. "That’s why it’s important to have someone there on a regular basis to get you through those rough times."
We found this article and wanted to share it with you all due to the fact that Dr. Pam Peeke MD, stresses the importance of "having someone there on a regular basis to get you through the rough times." and "beware of the valley of quick cures". So often we are drawn in by flashy ads with grand promises from lovable celebrities selling us a lose weight quick product. We're quick to forget about the work, commitment and vital importance of staying healthy throughout the process, not just shedding pounds at any cost. While it would be great to be able to just replace a meal or two a day with a creamy chocolate drink or candy bar and lose weight, it isn't realistic. More importantly, it isn't always healthy. Changes in lifestyle and learning proper diet with the help of someone who is in your corner, ("to get you through those rough times") are key ingredients for weight loss success. At the same time, being aided by healthy, quality meal replacements, probiotics and pharmaceutical grade vitamins and supplements are instrumental in getting your body back to the way it should function.
So, with all this in consideration, we set out to find such a program and that's when we turned to Metagenics.
We have been using Metagenics supplements for a while now and just love them. Metagenics was founded in 1983 on a brave new scientific concept: how the right nutrition could help people realize their best health possible by influencing what makes them unique—their genes. Today, this ever-growing and respected field of science is known as nutrigenomics. And it's been practiced for nearly 30 years by forward-thinking providers who utilize our industry-leading products and programs to help people live healthier, happier lives.
