All too often when it comes to losing weight people worry so much about all the small things and turn a blind eye to the big things. People obsess over calories, if they should eat potoatos, if they should have the latest natural sweetener such as stevia, etc. when in actual fact they may need to be honest about what is really causing the problem.
For example why worry about the carbohydrates in a potato if every weekend you are having a big drinking bender? Why panic about calories when you are eating a chocolate bar a day?
Look, the little things do matter when you are nearing your goal and want to lose the last 5 or 10 lbs but if you have a lot to lose then stop stressing about the little things and focus on the biggest cause of the problem. Typical problems when it comes to food are:
5 typical food barriers to losing weight:
1. Too much sugar in your diet
2. Large quantities of alcohol
3. Eating processed foods
4. Too much wheat in the form of pasta, sliced breads, processed cereals, bagels, etc.
5. Calorie filled drinks.
Losing weight isn’t easy but the process needs to start with being honest with yourself as to what the cause of the weight is.
Be kind to yourself.
