What is Weight Loss?

A balanced approach

I’ve been thinking a bit on why there are so many different kinds of diets.  And why so many of them don’t work.  One reason is because we look at weight loss as a separate event.  Like painting the house.  Instead of a part of our lives that is influenced by many aspects of our lives.  There are MANY factors that contribute to weight gain.  Not all of them are immediately under our control.  Granted our habits might have gotten us to a point where weight loss is hard but after cleaning things up, you just might have residue affects that you aren’t obviously aware of that are slowing you down.  Example.  Clogged up liver.  Eating a food you have no idea you are sensitive to.  Missing a couple of nutrients.

Another thought to throw your weigh.  Maybe there are so many weight loss programs because we just aren’t getting to the heart of the matter and these programs are a brute force way of losing weight.  Which in the end, doesn’t stick.  Doesn’t translate into lifestyle changes.  WHY?  Because they are sustainable.  So … should you lose weight in a manner that isn’t a healthy lifestyle change?  Short term gain for …. what?  Closet full of clothes of many sizes.
