You made the resolution. Easy. You signed up for a gym membership or started a diet program. Even easier. You started and found it wasn’t easy at all. In fact, it was downright painful both physically and emotionally. Exhaustion sets in and, instead of results, a nagging feeling of “just give up” creeps in. You think “well, maybe next year” and old habits resume. Here is the story of nearly every weight loss program ever embarked-upon by would-be “losers” who just couldn’t bear the “pain” that comes with making it to the goal. What happens? Is it possible to overcome?

Weight loss is painful proportionately to the amount of toxins involved

Here is the crux of the problem. Weight gain is not a health issue so much as a symptom of one. So-called “foods” which are ingested that are considered toxic by the body accumulate and create malfunction internally. The body breaks down from there. In other words, the body falls out of a state of health due to lack of nourishment. Weight gain is a major symptom of this but other symptoms like aches and pains, tension, stress and many others can certainly occur. One of the first things that happens when you attempt to lose the weight by eating a more nourishing diet and exercising is that the body begins to let go of those toxins.

Are you addicted to what you eat?

Caffeine is one of the most obvious examples of an “addiction” by the body as evidenced by the withdrawal symptoms experienced when stopping its consumption. Any toxin will have this effect on the body. Toxins from processed foods such as diet sodas and packaged, non-whole foods will need to be expelled for health to be restored and those pounds to come off. Withdrawal symptoms abound in many cases.

Withdrawal doesn’t have to be very painful at all

One of the characteristics of withdrawal is the depletion of minerals from the body. Deficiencies are created by the detoxification process which is where all the pain and discomfort can come in. This is where calcium and magnesium, once again, come into play most vitally. Maintaining these levels is ever more important in the detoxification process as well as recovery from exercise. This is paramount because here we have the foremost reasons people give up on weight loss. These mineral levels can be the difference between success and failure.

How to achieve weight loss for real without quitting
