Most of the time when big course in miracles of adults are being surveyed, we can easily find as a priority on their lists or as their number one goal or number one problem or number one concern: losing weight. According to the stats of the American Obesity Association, more than one-third of the adult American population is overweight.
Actually, the staggering numbers speak better than any article could: 127 million adults are overweight, 60 million are obese, and 9 million are severely obese in the United States. And this is data only from the US.
Yes, but this stats also mean something else: a huge pool of potential customers for various diets or for weight loss products. Now, you know, and I know, too, that a large number of all the fat people are looking for that miracle weight loss diet.
We want to lose weight as painlessly as possible, thus becoming like “sitting ducks” for unscrupulous marketers. I absolutely recommend to all the buyers out there to keep a dose of skepticism. As my mother said: “better safe than sorry”
Fad diets or miracle diets appear each day. There is a certain amount of fuss about them and then the magic diets are easily fading away. Actually, they don’t work! And, before anything else, let me be very direct here: a painless and easy way to lose weight does not exist!
There only one formula I know, and I have personally tried many times is this: eat less, exercise more! I guarantee that it works every single time. It worked for me always! There is nothing shady about it, just eat fewer calories than you expend.
Really, there is nothing miraculous about weight loss. The only miracle I saw was my own motivation and determination to loose weight, increased by each successful step I took. Latter, this miracle became a lifestyle.
When we feed our bodies, they extract from the food we intake the vitamins, minerals, and trace elements that it needs to function. It is less important whether the food is in the form of a hamburger and fries or an apple and cottage cheese. The body sees that as fuel and out of that fuel keeps everything it needs, stores the extra in the form of fat, and eliminates the waste. That’s it. No more miraculous than that!
