I just read an article that was posted through a blog that I follow: Losing Weight After 45 is a Bitch. It is an article about how Wal-Mart is promising to make their foods healthier. If there is anything you need to be aware of out there in the vast abyss of food choices it is the word “healthier”. When you see this ask yourself the simple question: Healthier than what?
The only way to know this is to educate yourself on what foods are truly going to be a healthy choice. Retailers sell what the consumer demands. It is up to us to change that. Instead of jumping up and down and complaining about what they are selling, change how you consume.
The first step in developing a healthy lifestyle is to stop being a victim and take responsibility for your own health. There are myriads of healthy choices out there for you that are accessible and affordable.
I work in the weight loss field. I have come to learn that victims will never succeed in losing and maintaining weight. Those that stop blaming the world around them and take the responsibility for their own health are the ones who will make the changes and stick to them.
It’s not rocket science. Get educated. Eat healthy foods and take care of yourself. You don’t get a second chance at it.
