The Ten Commandments of Healthy Weight Loss

Losing weight isn’t easy, especially when you’re constantly on the go. Following my Ten Commandments for Healthy Weight Loss can make the process a little easier to manage and the results, inspiring. If you find it helpful, you might want to post it on your refrigerator door, TV, in your office cubicle, or any other place where you will see it every day.

I. Thou shalt not eat unless thou art hungry. Eating when bored, lonely, angry, or upset will increase thy weight tenfold.

II. Thou shalt not sit on thy sofa watching TV for hours on end. Instead, thou shalt get up and move thy body to burn calories and exercise thy heart.

III. Thou shalt not indulge in super size portions just because the restaurant offers them. Thou shalt request a child sized portion, or request a carry-out box to take some home for thy next day’s lunch.

IV. Thou shalt avoid foods made with white flour. White flour is a highly processed and refined food that is stripped of the nutritious and fiber-rich parts. Refined foods cause more thy body to produce more insulin which in turn causes thy body to store fat and gain weight.

V. Thou shalt not drink sugary soda pop in excess. One regular sized soda pop a day will cause thee to gain 10 pounds in a year, so thou can imagine what several sodas a day will do!

VI. Thou shalt not stay up late instead of getting the sleep thy body needs. Thy body will burn calories more efficiently with adequate sleep, which usually means 7-8 hours for adults and 9 or more for young children and teens.

VII. Thou shalt not avoid eating thy vegetables just because thee imagines that they taste bad. Thou shalt exercise thy taste buds by eating a wide variety of colorful veggies, especially dark green leafy ones.

VIII. Thou shalt not fry thy food or eat foods fried by others. Fried foods add fat to thy body and clog thy arteries.

VIII. Thou shalt not allow the rude comments or stares from others to discourage thee from meeting thy goals for good health. Thou art a Child of God, and deserve a healthy body.

IX. Thou shalt not skip breakfast! When thy body has fasted for several hours, it deserves to be given a healthy, nutritious breakfast. Eating a protein food such as eggs, cottage cheese, or natural peanut butter; a serving of fruit or natural fruit juice, and a dairy product will give thy body the start it needs to function well during the morning.

X. Thou shalt not be discouraged and give up if thee “falls off the wagon” and eats the wrong foods for a day. Thou shalt realize that every day is a new day, and continue to follow the Ten Commandments of Healthy Weight Loss!
