Eating has become more of a habit than a real nutritional life supporting need.  Just because you are watching TV or just relaxing doesn’t mean you need to eat.  Nor does it mean you need to drink soda with lunch just because you always do and candy bar at 3pm. 

The term “Organic” has several meanings but one is “developing  in  a  manner  analogous  to  the  natural  growth  and  evolution  characteristic  of  living  organisms;  arising  as  a  natural  outgrowth.” What does the mean?  It means we change and grow naturally.  This growth comes from your logical portions of your brain making a change.  You could also call it the “ah ha!” moment, when you finally get it.  You only know what it has been trained for.

New organic habits is how you will truly loose the weight and keep it off more importantly.  As you create new habits your lifestyle will change without you really knowing it.  That is the issue with fad diets, do not last.  After the weight is lost, old habits creep back and weight goes back on.  As humans we are creatures of habit; what we eat, what brands we use, including our morning coffee. 

So how do you create new healthy organic habits?  You have to train yourself everyday.  Learn to realize that a candy bar is not a good afternoon snack but an apple is.  Realizing that is half the battle.  When at the store you need to buy more apples, and bring them with you to work.  Some planning is required, like making chicken for example.  At the store purchase 2 more servings then you need for one meal.  Make them all then store the left over chicken and make a healthy chicken salad.  There is no fancy diet, just finding the will to make a change.

Weight loss is within you, by developing new healthy habits.  Creating organic habits that will lead to a healthy lifestyle, not only physically but mentally.  Your mind is what will trigger the thought, “I must go workout” rather than “I should go workout” or “I am bored, have some cookies and watch TV” to “I am bored, let’s go walk and eat an apple”.
