A lot of weight loss “experts” will tell you to weigh yourself each and every day if you’re trying to lose weight. The idea seems to make sense on the surface. Regularly checking yourself on a set of weight loss scales leads to motivation when you see positive results.
So often in the business world or in general goal setting, you hear people talk about getting clear about what you want. You can’t really reach a goal until you know what that goal is. Plus, if you don’t have a goal or destination, how will you know when you get there?
Well, the same can be said of your weight loss goal. Is your reason strong enough? Are you clear about your ‘why’?
Do you give up at the first setback? Whether caused by something you did (e.g. overeating) or something completely out of your control (e.g. injury or sickness), setbacks are almost always a guarantee with weight loss.
How you focus on reaching your weight loss goal and dealing with setbacks will determine your level of success.

It’s important that you’re eating enough vegetables as they play a vital role in proper nutrition. Along with a diet rich in whole grains and fruits, veggies can deliver all of the essential vitamins, nutrients and minerals you need for excellent health.
Unfortunately, today’s Standard American Diet (its acronym is ‘SAD’ for a reason) is lacking in healthy vegetables. This is the same basic processed and sugar-filled diet that is prevalent in most modern societies and cultures.
