The first is reading. Knowledge is power. I am always keen to read good health, fitness, weight loss books - altho I haven't read any for a long time! If anyone has any books they can recommend please add a comment or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. But I thought I would include some books I have read in the past and found good:
- Inner health, outer beauty by Joanna McMillan
- The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone
- Master your metabolism by Jillian Michaels (this one admittedly is a hard read very technical with lots of science words!)
- The end of overeating by David Kessler
Of course there are also weight loss journals you can read so I am going to include a few I often read - but if you know of any other good ones please share!!!
I am always keen for other good journals that update still please share i am always after good ones! (I know there are some other good ones like bitchcakes but I am wanting ones that are active still)
Other things you can do is sign up for yahoo or google alerts - select your topics of interest and they will appear how often you want in your inbox!
Another good site is http://stumbleupon.com - I havent used this site for a long time but use to a lot...it takes you from site to site for your favourite topics...its fab :)
Watch...with you tube, tv and streaming shows there is lots of good options for what we can view.
There are shows like :
- Extreme weight loss
- Biggest loser
- Half tonne hospital (on foxtel)
- The fat doctor (on foxtel)
- My 400lb life (on foxtel)
You can find episodes of most if not all of these on you tube - any other recommendations? Share in comments or email me on email@example.com
Podcasts - I only really listen to one but am keen for others which is (not surprising!) The Jillian Michaels Show (find it on itunes) - do you listen to any health, fitness, weight loss, fat loss shows? Please share!
A good resource also is www.fmtv.com which has a lot of good documentaries on it (some you can find on you tube as well) some of my favourites are:
- food inc
- hungry for change
- simply raw : reversing diabetes
- fat, sick and nearly dead
Im also keen for any other documentaries people can recommend!
So theres some steps, don't make weight loss a chore - if it is a chore we will never be successful - it takes time but think of it in a positive light - that it brings you enjoyment and makes you happy and it will work better for ALL of us !!
