How many reasons do you have for loving or hating this time of year? For me, the holiday season is a time to be present with myself and my loved ones. I take pleasure in slowing down for a brief intermission from the daily grind to give some thought as to how I want to direct the course of my life in the coming year. For many of us, celebrating the New Year is the best time to start over and renew ourselves.
So many of us have one thing in mind come January 1st – weight loss! And I imagine the start to 2013 will bring the same fervor for weight loss it has in the past. What is it about setting resolutions to achieve that perfect body size or kick the junk food habit that has such a hold on our collective psyche and why do they often putter out after only a few short months?
To help you achieve your 2013 weight loss goal, I provide tips on how to eat in The Blood Sugar Solution . But amidst clear diet plans and simple eating guidelines, there is sometimes more to the weight loss story than mere fact- based knowledge.
For some of us, knowing is not enough. And that is why I am excited to share Marc David’s perspective on weight loss and how to make real change stick. Marc is a nutritional psychologist and a world leader who reveals the secrets to understanding the missing ingredient that many seekers of nutritional wisdom have been searching for.
If you are serious about succeeding on The Blood Sugar Solution, or any other health program, I encourage you to learn more about Marc and his Secrets of Eating Psychology . Visit his website where you can get your free video guide , Secrets of an Eating Psychologist – The 9 Challenges We Face with Food and How to Transform Them. The ideas expressed in his work can help you make thoughtful advances in your weight loss goals. Even more, they may completely awaken you to a whole new perspective on life.
Marc knows how sincere my patients are about their goals. I asked him to spend some time earnestly thinking about the struggles occurring in the mind of the eater. This is what he had to say:
Go deep inside yourself, give to others, and contact the greater wisdom of the universe. Then notice how much easier it is to feel nourished.
Wishing you and your family a very happy and healthy holiday!
To your good health,
Mark Hyman, MD and Marc David, M.A.
