You’re doing the searching. You’re looking up information on getting healthy, losing weight, and maybe even getting fit. Your interest is piqued because you have recognized your declining health, increasing weight, or lack of fitness. Maybe you’re tired of feeling worn down all the time, or not being able to fit into a booth at your favorite restaurants anymore. Perhaps flying is something you hate doing because the seats are so small. It’s possible you feel embarassed when people stare at you because of your being overweight. Maybe you look at fit, trim, and thin people wishing that you could be one of them.
It’s time to get started. The time to consider, think about, and contemplate starting a diet and weight loss program has passed. The time for action is now. Start today. Your next meal, even. Yes, it’s that easy.
How can I start a healthy diet today? You can begin by ensuring that your meal is free of the following:
- Added sugar/processed sugar
It’s hard to find foods that don’t contain those ingredients at a fast food restaurant, but you can always find some grilled chicken, beef, or pork at nearly any restaurant, and grilled chicken is even available at some fast food restaurants. Avoid the buns (grains) and the foods fried in vegetable oil or breaded foods.
Now, starting properly takes some preparation. I recommend looking at Whole30 or the Paleo Diet websites for how to prep properly, but eating well can start immediately with little preparation.
What if I’m not ready to commit? When will you be? What will it take? How long do you think you can go in your current situation before the damage done to your organs and body are irreparable? Starting today means that you get a start on your healthier life immediately. Changing your lifestyle today means that to keep the ball rolling, you need to make some serious changes that will improve your health, reduce your weight, and increase the length of your life.
The time is now. Don’t put it off any longer. Start today, if you haven’t already. It’ll be the best action you’ve ever taken.
