The greatest hidden secret to weight loss

The greatest hidden secret to weight loss | Mr Vitamins
If you look at people who exercise or eat healthily regularly, you realise that those healthy practices become habitual for them like a routine. Likewise, individuals who smoke, drink alcohol heavily, or eat processed foods develop routines as well. You see any kind of habitual behavior comes down to brain programming. In other words, the secret to weight loss - and to keeping the weight off, and your body nourished is not so much genetics or pure luck as it is willpower!


Although referring to willpower as a secret weapon may sound like saying “mind over matter,” willpower really has powerful effects on your body and overall health. For instance, you know how difficult it is to eat just one biscuit and not reach for another. After some time passes, you’ve lost count of how many biscuits you ate!

Willpower feeds your Energy for Weight Loss

One of the most common reasons people have for not exercising is that they just don’t have the energy. Nevertheless, many people experience a boost in energy with regular exercise. Now, how can this be? The answer is willpower (or lack thereof). What happens is that a lack of exercise and a poor diet can actually produce mineral deficiencies and metabolic disorders in your body. As a result, your body cannot make adequate energy from the food you eat let alone store energy. At the same time, unhealthy foods are filled with pesticides and GMOs that damage your liver and prevent detoxification. Consequently, toxins build up in your body further depriving you of energy - and preventing effective weight loss. And without proper nutrition and energy you increase your risk of developing 900 different diseases and disorders! But willpower can turn all of this around…

Willpower: An underdeveloped muscle

In the light of earlier examples, it is willpower that helps you eat just one biscuit (or none at all) and it is willpower that pushes you to exercise and eat healthily. Researchers believe that you should think of willpower as a muscle—the more you use it, the stronger it becomes.
