66 – Weight loss behaviors and mindset

(duration 24:12)This show we start out with a discussion of natural movement from my recent hiking experiences, and then we delve into an article by SciAm about behaviors that do and don’t contribute to weight loss. It’s important to find foods that are tasty substitutes for the not-so-healthy foods we typically grew up eating; that way, counterproductive “cheat days” become less attractive. As far as making your healthy changes stick, getting support from others can be helpful, yet the task of developing more inner awareness is always an individual affair. And this entails resolving emotional conflicts and aligning your present behaviors with your long-term goals. Once again, optimal health is achieved through the mind/body integration process.
