You don’t have enough hours in the day to burn off the unhealthy stuff you’re eating.
Most Americans are eating far too much of the kinds of foods their bodies can’t use. In fact, even though the body does burn off some of the unhealthy stuff, the truth is that there are not enough hours in the day to burn off the volume of unhealthy food most people eat. That means you’re in a downward spiral which will eventually impact your health – IF you don’t make some vital changes. Find out how you can get started addressing your health so that you can become a healthy entrepreneur, on this episode.
All calories are not created equal: That knowledge could change the way you eat.
The calories in – calories out concept is good to know. You can’t expect to lose weight and build a healthy body if you are consuming more calories than you are burning. However, all calories are not created equal. What that means is that many of the calories you may be eating are actually having a bigger negative impact on your body than others, which makes them harder to burn off. On this episode of Happy Black Woman, you will learn what foods contain the worst kind of calories, how to deal with it from a consumption standpoint, and what you can do to adjust the way you eat to build true health into your lifestyle.
The real reason you gain weight and can’t get it to come off.
Dropping excess weight is about more than metabolism, fats, and calories. There is a myriad of things that go into a healthy weight loss formula but one of the most important has to do with water intake. It’s one thing to stimulate your body to burn more fat, but if you’re not drinking enough water to help flush those fats out of your body, you’ll have trouble dropping weight. On this episode, you’re going to hear some great tips about losing weight, building a healthy lifestyle, and changing your diet over the long term.
To become a healthy entrepreneur you need to make some hard decisions.
What is it you really want from life? Is it energy and a sense of well-being? Is it monetary or career success? Is it good relationships? Very few things in life impact all of those areas and more – and your physical health is one of them. Becoming healthy requires that you understand the vital link bodily health plays in that equation and then make decisions that enable you to put that priority in place so that all the things you want in life will be fueled by it. Dr. Phoenyx Austin is on the show to help us understand how to get to that place, so be sure you listen.
