New Year, Best You: A Novel Weight Loss Approach
How you can eliminate the problem of hitting the New Year with weight loss as a recurring New Year’s Resolution rarely maintainedMake a choice: be the best you can be with long-lasting and effective results Click To Tweet
It’s that time of year again…
Another calendar is just set to roll over. A fresh new year is about to kick-start. This will be our year.
- We all want to realize more of our goals
- We all want to be fit, strong and healthy
- We all want to avoid past mistakes
Doing the same thing over and over, though, and expect-ing different results. This is something most of us are guilty of from time to time.
It is also one definition of insanity!
Someone once said, “If you keep on banging your head against a brick wall… Try walking around the wall.”This sage advice can serve us well in many facets of life.
Healthy living as a choice is one such area.
This innovative way of conquering seemingly insur-mountable obstacles means that, by looking for alterna-tive solutions and side-stepping the received wisdom pursued by the masses, we can get tangible results when only loss and disappointment seem otherwise on the agenda.
Health-related issues are the area in which the vast ma-jority of people are prompted to take annual action…
Whether it’s to quit smoking, reduce our alcohol intake, exercise more or lose weight, we can attach unwarranted significance to January 1 and set unrealistic goals.
- You want to lose weight?
- You have to go on a diet, right?
How would you like to lose weight and become healthi-er, fitter and stronger without dieting?
Sound too good be true?
Well, it is true. It is do-able and a preferable method by some distance to the numbing sense of failure induced by most regimented diet plans inevitable lack of victors.
NEVER go without the foods you love
- NEVER feel hungry. Ever
- NEVER forego a dessert if you want one – people in good shape still enjoy great food. Learn how to em-brace and enjoy the food you love with no guilt. That’s what a good life is all about. Tomorrow you will not do the same thing – it’s a treat. Enjoy it!
How would YOU like to accomplish this?
If weight loss is your goal for 2016 then it’s perfectly simple: make a choice…
Be active not passive in every sense.
Think differently, use approaches that deviate from the norm – with less effort – and also save money in many areas thrown into the bargain: win, win, win
Put like this, making that choice is not starting to look so bad!
Some brief reasons why yo-yo dieting fails
Extensive investigation and studies show that 80-90% of diets fail and fail catastrophically. Not only do most individuals who diet not achieve their goal, they put all the weight back on within a year. The final insult is that this increase often amounts to even more than the weight originally lost! That’s hardly an incentive to go back for more nor does it help your self-esteem.
You, though, have done nothing wrong!
The, mindset and very reason for the diet industry is just this: to keep you coming back for more knowing in ad-vance you stand scant chance of success and thus the circle continues…
The carrot is dangled in the form of “Before and after” testimonials but the fact remains: yo-yo dieting is a rec-ipe (pun unintended) for disaster.
There are also a vast array of health problems, minor and major, associated with dieting or being overweight. These will be addressed fully in a forthcoming article as they warrant a comprehensive study.
As a taster, though, ponder this: a colosall 1 in 2 US citi-zens will be pre-diabetic or diabetic by 2020. The ratio is already a startling 1 in 3 and this sharp rise is disturb-ing.
Read on in the following weeks for more reasons you should live healthily without setting yourself up for failure by using a flawed system.
Do not be one of these disappointed souls, trying your best yet feeling worse not better and set to return to your previous weight once the diet ends.
You are highly likely to return to your old ways as you have made no worthwhile changes deep inside. You have simply followed a procedure with the strongest of faith giving it your very best shot and yet, a year later, you are in the precise same position making an identical promise to yourself.
Stop this now!
Three things are key in controlling your weight.
- What you eat
- Subconscious sabotage
- The exercise you undertake tailored to your needs
The relationship between these three areas is variable and there are other factors to consider but think about this:
– Do not diet. Make a simple decision: Whatever change I am willing to make, I am willing to make for LIFE… make it a lifestyle choice
– Exercise accordingly. Many posts on www.alljustchoice.com give plenty of free, helpful advice you can implement today (Fitness Articles)

As with the health issues, a further slated article out-lines the diverse range of avenues in which you can save money but this merits a separate, detailed post.
A crucial thing to bear in mind is that the process needs to begin with a refusal to diet – the very word resonates with the concepts of deprivation, unpalatable food, hun-ger pangs and more expense.
Reject dieting as you know it.

You deserve it
Once you are back in the kitchen and away from fast-food counters, you’ll rapidly find that you are always full, that your preferred foodstuffs are still on the menu and that you will feel abundantly better for taking ac-tion.
Exercise follows hand-in-glove. (Although 80% of the battle is truly with what you put into your body) Many useful links are available on this site within exercise-themed posts which make one thing plain: like with weight loss through eating, exercise need be neither tax-ing nor unenjoyable.
Choose an activity or activities you really look forward to. If you dislike the treadmill then it’s only a matter of time before your routine implodes, usually surprisingly quickly. Pick tennis or cycling which you love and your chance of pulling it off in the long-haul just skyrocketed.
