Weight Loss Is Not the Key to a Healthy, Beautiful Body
Forget about weight loss. Work to burn body fat and improve lifestyle habits.

I always recommend that you make it a priority to live a healthier lifestyle each day. By doing this, you will build a healthy, lean body along the way. The quick weight loss lifestyle will ultimately leave you frustrated, unhealthy and overweight.

I always stress health before weight loss and beauty. What good does it do you to look great if your body is a total wreck and unhealthy.

Optimal health is defined by Dr. Duke Johnson, the author of the book, "The Optimal Health Revolution".

Dr. Johnson defines optimal health as:

“Optimal Health is the best health you are capable of, given your past and your genetic heritage.”

Optimal health involves making lifestyle changes to improve your:

1. health
2. fitness
3. energy levels
4. quality of life

We are living longer on this earth so quality of life is important.

The “quick weight loss lifestyle” is narrow minded when you compare it to the “optimal health lifestyle.”

Quick weight loss leads to slowed metabolism, a weaker immune system, hormonal imbalances, loss of lean mass, increased body fat, decreased energy levels, disrupted sleep patterns, short-term results and yo-yo weight loss and regain. I’ll take the optimal health option any day over quick weight loss.

Credible personal trainers teach that fat loss, weight loss, health and wellness fit together. You can’t really have one without the others. A balanced life is definitely your best chance for a quality life.

How do you measure up in these areas of life?

1. Growing and changing effectively throughout life
2. Dealing with hormonal problems (men and women)
3. Daily nutritional habits
4. Dietary supplement intake
5. Healthy fat loss and weight loss
6. Postural and other body alignment problems

Make a commitment today to a lifestyle of health and fitness. Without this commitment, you will eventually go back to short-term solutions like quick weight loss.

If you need to schedule that doctor’s appointment to see where your health stands, get it done soon.
