Trying to lose weight with no results? Have you checked your attitude lately? We live in a world with much negativity all around us so it’s easy to see how one could become negative some or all of the time. Did you know that your state of mind and attitude could be affecting your ability to lose weight and meet your weight loss goals? Dr. Caroline Leaf tells us that when you’re thinking negatively, your body does not absorb 80 percent of the nutritional value of what you are eating. That is something to think about! Attitude- might be the reason your diet is failing!
We all have stress but how does it affect your attitude? When you are physiologically stressed the body begins to slow or shut down certain areas as it tries to get a handle on your stress. In the body, stress is seen as an indication of threat and goes into survival mode. Stress can lead to stomach ulcers, constipation, diarrhea, metabolic imbalance and hyperacidity. It’s easy to have negative emotions or an negative attitude when you are feeling stressed but you have to motor through and keep an positive attitude if you are trying to lose weight. The same way we give the ICBC lawyer side eyes, dealing with stress believe it or not, is affecting your weight loss.
You might want to check your state of mind and first work on your attitude before making a diet plan for weight loss. Mental health and the correlation to weight loss has been a hot topic in recent years so this is probably the very reason why your kale and spinach salads are not giving you the weight loss that you desire. Our second brain, the digestive track, is sometimes the culprit to your unsuccessful weight loss. Our attitude and stress levels affect that second brain so we should be mindful of the thoughts we have and work to change them to be more positive.
