Going on a diet is not always food. It’s all about mindset. In my opinion, you can still go on a diet even if you eat lotsa junk food as long as you move or do some activities after eating them.
My doctor told me to go on a diet. To be honest, I don’t eat that much but I kept on gaining weight and it’s because I don’t move after every meal and because I’m lazy(and I won’t lie about that). Simple movements like a little walk, house cleaning, sweeping/vacuuming the floor will do (or a lil dancing ;)).
Any movement that can make you sweat everyday can help you lose some weight. You may not notice it but your brain is manipulating your body fat (my fat, our fat) by making you think that moving is tiring which leads to laziness.
Seriously, I’ve tried apple cider vinegar and honey and boy don’t expect it to take its toll right away. Taking those herbal or home remedies still needs proper diet and exercise and oh, mindset J
But honestly, I should start cleaning now *high five*
Gotta sweat now!
Seriously, I never tried doing fasting before because I really can’t stop eating(I might cry). But a good kid(a return missionary actually) told me that it’s not always food. At first I was like “what are you saying, weirdo?” And then as He explain briefly, I totally understand.
What he’s trying to say is that if you really can’t go a day without food, or if you’re on meds that requires you to consume something before taking it. Then maybe it’s time for you to do another option. Like for example, don’t watch a TV for a day or if you drink soda, maybe try to drop it at least for a day or two. Or in teens, maybe disconnect yourself from any social media sites or stop using your mobile phones. The options are endless. Only you can decide which is which.
Some people justify things. And you really can’t stop them from doing that because they’re still human.
But here’s the thing about fasting. While doing, you have to stay focus spiritually. Try studying the scriptures or listen to hymns or just reflect on life and say thanks.
***this is just my opinion. I’m not against any church teachings. Just trying to help people having trouble fasting***
Don’t stop showing gratitude.
