Diets and Healthy Living

– Hi, it's Victoria here from BAM POW LIFE and in this video we're talking about weight and health issues (calm music) Before we get into this video, I wanna make sure that you know about my free eCourse, the Extreme Confidence Makeover

It's 10 days, it's awesome and you can grab it by going to the link underneath this video A big barrier that I see from people stopping dieting is the notion that weight and health are linked and that if you have health issues, it's solely because you have a bigger body and so this is a tricky one and if you don't know the answer, it can really stop you from letting go of dieting because you want to be healthy which is a normal desire and so I wanna say to you, being fat doesn't mean that you are unhealthy and being thin doesn't mean that you're healthy, right? We kinda all know this, right? We know this, do you know this? This is true, this is true And so say for example your knees are hurting You presume it's because you have a bigger body You embark on a diet to get a smaller body so that your knees don't hurt anymore

The problem with this is are your knees hurting because you have a bigger body and will that diet work and so we know that the diet won't work 95% of diets fail and actually, between one and 2/3 of people who go on a diet end up weighing up more than before they started and so the diet will not help your knees because it'll make you bigger if that is even why your knees are hurting and so the solution is not to diet but to focus on making your knees feel great and so it could be strengthening your knees, it could be doing low impact exercises It could be looking to see if there's anything else going on like arthritis which is not connected to your weight So another health issue could be that you're diabetic or pre-diabetic and so your doctor says, you need to lose weight and that will help you and so again you go on a diet but the diet will fail and so that's the wrong course of action to take So instead, you would learn about things like okay, so what foods are gonna really help my body, do I need to exercise more, move my body, what's going on here, how can I help this and so if you focus on feeling healthful versus a number on the scale then you'll be able to look after whatever's going on with your body and if you're focusing on I'm losing weight therefore I'm more healthy, it's not sustainable the weight loss and really you're temporarily tackling the issue and again you're probably gonna be fatter than you were before

Obviously there's nothing wrong with being fatter but if your goal is to be thinner then what's the point in dieting? The number one thing is if someone says to you you need to lose weight because of your health, think how can I become more healthy without focusing on a number on the scale because losing weight doesn't work and so if your doctor says to you, lose weight and you're gonna be miraculously healthy, say to your doctor, what would you prescribe a thin person? I'll have that, thank you and then you can focus on healthful behaviors if that's something that is important to you So if you'd like more goodness like this in your life then head on over to the Extreme Confidence Makeover You're gonna find the link below It's free, it's 10 days, it's incredible and I will see you next time, my queen
