There’s an interesting article in the Times today by a Cognitive Behaviour Therapist who talks about the need to think like a thin person for your new healthy diet to be successful.

If you’re following our Herbalife Weight Management programme, or will be starting it on Monday, you’ll already have great nutritional support to help you achieve your goals, and a clear eating plan incorporating adequate snacks and protein levels to keep your body functioning at its optimum (and ideally including regular exercise) but having the right mind-set will certainly help you get and stay on track! Here’s an extract…

Do you ever find yourself thinking, “I know I shouldn’t eat this, but I don’t care?” Or maybe, “I’ve had such a bad day, I deserve to eat this”. Or, “I’ve eaten something I shouldn’t. I may as well blow my diet for the rest of the day”. Having worked as a cognitive therapist with dieters for the past 20 years, I know that these are some of the most common “sabotaging thoughts” that get in the way of successful weight loss. For many people the reason diets don’t succeed is that they don’t know how to diet, or to lose weight permanently. The good news is that by applying the principles of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to any healthy, well-balanced diet of your choosing, you can learn how to continually follow a diet, avoid cheating, resist tempting food and cope with hunger, cravings, stress and negative emotions. You’ll do all this by changing the way you think.

Do you……

  • Frequently miss meals or eat irregularly?
  • Consume a lot of fat-saturated or sugary foods?
  • Drink alcohol regularly?
  • Smoke?
  • Travel long distances?
  • Fail to take regular exercise?
  • Have regular exposure to fumes, chemicals and toxins?
  • Lack quality sleep?
  • Suffer with stress at work or at home?
  • Catch colds frequently and struggle to shake them off?

Each of these factors allow free radicals to proliferate and weaken the immune system. A weakened immune system leaves the body vulnerable and is partly caused by poor nutrition. A healthy immune system is better equipped to deal with everyday challenges and as we age, having a healthy immune system is more important than ever. (more…)

Startling new research reported by the BBC today shows that there may well be a link between the quality of leadership at work and your health.

We’ve probably all been there – that sinking feeling that starts just before Sunday lunch and turns into full-blown dread by the time the alarm goes off on a Monday morning. I remember it all too well and know the very real physical effects that the stress of a terrible manager had on me – I was often ill, my weight ballooned and I suffered from IBS for several years. In the end I did the only thing I could do – I changed jobs and found something I enjoyed.

If YOU are feeling the effects of work-related stress, there are several things you can try: (more…)
