In this episode I discuss 

We often experience being very enthusiastic about achieving a goal. We do all the things that we need to do. We listen to information available through the social media, magazines, TV shows, and emails. We read all related books, get a new program, buy meal plans, and even hire a coach, just to make sure that we arrive at the goal. And yet, after a month or two, we revert back to our old selves. Like, “what the heck? I know what to do, but why am I not getting any results? Why nothing changes?”

I, myself, have gone through the same problem with my weight. I tried different diet programs that I will strictly follow for one week, but after that, I’ll go back to eating chips. I’d wonder what was wrong with me.

Unlearn what was taught to us

The thing is… we were told many different things while growing up. We were told that to manage our weight, we need to do diet and exercise. We were told to buy many types of products. We were educated that the solution to our weight problem is a certain diet plan, a work-out video/program, or a gym membership. It’s not our fault if we listened to all of these, but we must realize now that they are not the real solution.

Why nothing changes: The Solution

We need to know that the solution is inside of us… we just need to learn how to find it. That is why we need a platform that will help us talk about how to find this solution. This platform should be a place where we can freely speak and say the real thing. It’s the place where we can learn that weight has nothing to do with calories or macros. It’s about how we feel and how is our relationship with ourselves.

It took me several months, but my team and I have finally built this platform that I wanted to create for a long time. The Going beyond the Food project is an online conference, where 21 teachers will explain that the answer to the BIG question, “why nothing changes?” has nothing to do with food. Instead, it has everything to do with us. You can register now and get exclusive access to free videos and health guides.

Know the Real Reason

The #1 reason why nothing changes is that we don’t take true responsibility. We rely too much on the information that is fed to us by TV programs, social media, and other online sources. We look for answers outside of ourselves so we won’t be responsible for the way we feel and think. You need to stop this. You need to do better.

Be responsible to educate yourselves because you know your own body better than any diet programs or meal plans do. You are more aware of your own health. Just accept who you are and take responsibility in making the best version of yourself. The time to do it is NOW!

Last week’s episode, Robyn Openshaw, also known as the Green Smoothie Girl, and I discussed the biggest secret the food industry doesn’t want you to know about your food.  I suggest you check it out!” You can listen to the episode here

On the next episode, Dr. Jillian Murphy will discuss the question, “Can we be fat and healthy?” “Does our weight have a direct correlation with our ability to be healthy and disease-free?” Tune in to this very enlightening episode!
