Confronting Discomfort Is A Key To Weight Loss

Hello, I’m Rick Taylar, and this is Weight Loss Mindset!

You'll always experience some kind of discomfort when you try to lose weight or improve your health.

It's normal, and it won't harm you. It doesn't mean there's something wrong with you.

But, many people run away from this discomfort, and that causes their plans to fail.

Just confront it, go through it, and your goals will be achieved.

If you've recently made drastic or even minor changes to your eating habits, you might be experiencing various levels of discomfort that could send you rebounding back to your old, unhealthy ways.

How To Deal With Your Physical Discomfort

If you change your diet to include more healthy foods and less of the fatty, sugary, salty choices that caused your weight gain, then it can take time for your system to adjust to this new way of eating. For example, eating more fiber from fruits and vegetables can lead to bloating and uncomfortable gas. Don't give up, though!

Your body just needs time to adjust to the increase in fiber, and once it does, your digestive system will work more efficiently, and you won't have these types of discomforts any longer.

What About Mental and Emotional Discomfort?

There are other reasons, though, why you may feel bad or uncomfortable when you try to make significant changes to your way of eating.

When you eliminate foods, especially those high in sugar, salt, and fat, you deprive your brain of dopamine, which is that "happy or feel good" neurotransmitter that's released when you eat foods high in these substances.

You've become addicted to this response over time with an unhealthy diet, and you're likely to experience some intense cravings and reactions when you cut these from your diet.

Learning to become comfortable with this discomfort is necessary for staying the course and sticking to your goals to achieve successful weight loss. 

Keeping your mind on the healthy, bright, vibrant vision of your future self will give you the strength you need to keep going!
