There are a lot of comments of people putting on weight in the past two years. Stress can be a big factor. Sometimes a person doesn’t realize the effect that a simple action can have on their life. For example, Judge Napolitano has discovered a way of life that has worked for him. Napolitano is not only known for his presence in the courtroom but recently individuals have been discussing his weight loss journey. The challenge most face when it comes to weight loss is not the know how or the lack of knowledge. People know what foods are considered healthy and which ones are not. People know that veggies are healthy and a sedentary lifestyle can bring on many challenges to your health. The true question is how to have a healthy lifestyle while being happy doing it. Imagine the scene of a parent and child sitting at the table. The parent says eat more vegetables. The child, with a defeated look on his or her face, slowly puts the veggies in his or her mouth. This is not a happy scene. Why can’t being healthy be enjoyable to the masses and not just a few unique individuals who love to shove greens into their mouths. Maybe if the situation is looked at from a different angle, success can be found.
Ok so a little secret, what is the ideal meal? What is meant by this question is what is the ideal meal that will make a person feel satisfied, happy and full of energy? Suppose people can go through the drive through and order this ideal meal. Is it possible? Well yes this is possible. Some of us are busy individuals like super moms. People are going to need both convene and healthy options. This is the key to success. Finding the correct balance between a healthy life and a happy life. So once again. Think of an ideal meal. Is it tacos? Yes delicious tacos. Instead of choosing the tacos that were cooked and drenched with lots of oil, go ahead and choose the grilled meat taco on a corn tortilla. If a vegetarian option is desired choose the impossible taco meat. This has a very delicious umami flavor. Instead of ordering 4 tacos, try ordering two tacos that are double stuff with a lean protein and double the veggies. Don’t forget to add beans on the side. This is a good source of fiber that will help fill your growling tummy. Getting creative can make or break a diet. Try adding a side of roasted sweet potatoes with cinnamon instead of ordering churros. Sub the large sugary soda for a flavored soda water that is not sweetened. If you need some sweetness in this drink then get creative. Judge Napolitano recommends buying some natural non sweetened flavors that can be found in the cake aisle of the grocery store. Then get some monk fruit powdered sweetener. Being happy and healthy is just around the corner.
