What to ADD to Your Diet When You Want to Lose Weight

SHOW NOTES: Episode 45

Weight loss is not a fast process. At least, it isn’t when you do it the right way. You did not gain 10, 20 or 50 pounds overnight, and you won’t lose it that way either. 

When most people try to lose weight, they go into it with a diet mentality. And why not? That’s what we’ve been taught, right? Diets are restrictive, and with restriction comes taking lots of things OUT of your diet to achieve the results you want. Yes, you can’t walk around eating an entire bag of chips and a package of Oreos daily,  but you don’t necessarily have to walk around in deprivation either. In fact, there are lots of things you need to ADD to your diet when you want to lose weight.

In this episode, Amanda and I give you three things to actually ADD into your diet to achieve the results you want to achieve. We also throw in a bonus tip, so stick around until the end 😉

Check out today’s episode.

Feed Yourself: Healthy Habits for the Mind, Body, & Soul is all about learning the key components of overall health based on Biblical principles. When most people think about getting in shape and becoming “healthy”, they immediately think about their physical health: losing weight, making exercise a priority, possessing flexibility and endurance, and remaining disease free. But Scripture makes it clear that physical wellness is not the only area that impacts health. In order to be TRULY healthy, we have to focus on four areas: spiritual health, emotional health, mental health, and physical health. 

This podcast dives deep into the tools and head knowledge you will need in order to create lasting results, but it also looks at the element that truly ties it all together – the heart knowledge that incorporates faith in God in this area of our lives and how to apply it when things get tough (and they will!).

I wanted to create a space to let you know you are never alone on this journey. Through years of experience in doing everything the WRONG way, I am here to share my journey of getting healthy from the inside out – ditching the restriction and diet culture and truly learning to treat my body as the temple God intended it to be. 

Grab a cup of coffee and join me as I discuss healthy habits to incorporate in your daily life to propel you forward and FEED YOURSELF on your journey to health in all areas: mind, body, and soul!
