You may be shocked to hear this, nutrition and staying active are not the most challenging aspects of losing weight.

You may be shocked to hear this, nutrition and staying active are not the most challenging aspects of losing weight.  I repeat NOT. Wait, aren’t they the only two things. Well no...

 

The two most challenging aspects are in fact.

  1. Not changing your habits, or thinking you don’t have to change.

  2. Thinking that it’s an overnight process and will happen quickly.

In reality, the most challenging parts have nothing to do to with your actions and what training you do daily, but more to do with the way you think about the things you do.    

 

Anyone can start eating healthy and exercising daily, but if you don’t have the right mindset to change your habits which got you to where you are now, then you’re on the road to failure.

 

Be honest with yourself... What habits have you formed over months or even years that led you to being overweight?

 

Those are the habits you have to consider and you need to break them. If you break those habits and form healthier ones you’re on the road to success.

 

But remember, it was a slow process that got you to where you are now and it's going to be a slow process to where you want to be.   When you can accept that you will have to change your current habits to reach your goals and that it will take time, you will be on the path to success.

Some great tips from Healthy Steps Nutrition below. We’ll be giving you some hints an tips weekly to help keep you on track with your goals.

We have all been there — you are super excited to start eating healthier so you go out and buy tons and tons of fruits and veggies. Then, before you know it, 75% of what you bought has gone bad before you can eat them! Important things to keep in mind are :

1) Don’t keep your produce in the door of the refrigerator where temperatures fluctuate. Keep them in the middle or bottom drawers to keep temperatures more consistent and avoid spoilage.

2) Don’t keep raw meat and produce in the same area of the fridge or counter. Cross-contamination is likely to happen, and you risk the chance of getting ill.

Here are some tips to keep your favorite produce ready to eat.

VEGGIES:

Fresh heads of lettuce, spinach, kale and other leafy greens should be washed really well with water before refrigerating. Dry the leaves and store them in a clean plastic bag with a few paper towels. Switch out the paper towels as needed.

Asparagus should be stored in the refrigerator and will last longer if stored these two ways: wrapped with a moist paper towel or standing them up in a glass of cold water wrapped with a damp paper towel

Garlic and onions should be kept at room temperature and in a well-ventilated area.

Store your mushrooms in a brown paper bag in the fridge or a cool, dry place. Don’t use plastic or glass, as this will trap in moisture and shorten their shelf life.

Place fresh herbs in a jar or vase of water, just like you would a bouquet of flowers. They’ll last longer and you’ll have beautiful green decor for your kitchen!

FRUITS:

Tomatoes should be stored at room temperature away from sunlight and washed just before using. Be sure not to store your tomatoes in plastic, as this will trap moisture and increase the likelihood of spoilage.

Fruits from the “drupe” category such as mangoes, plums, peaches, avocados, and nectarines can be ripened at room temperature in a brown paper bag, and should then be refrigerated for longer storage.

Clean your berries in a mixture of 10 parts water and 1 part white vinegar. It will help remove excess dirt and help them last longer by preventing mold growth.

Pro Tip:

Freezing fruits and veggies at home is a fast and convenient way to preserve produce at their peak maturity. Peel and freeze your bananas, mango, papaya, cooked cauliflower, beets or sweet potato in a clean plastic bag. Use them later in baking or for delicious smoothies!
