Lifestyle Change. Those are words that get thrown around a lot in modern discussion involving weight loss and eating habits; it’s also used to describe changes needing to be made for mental positivity and awareness. But, what does it mean to perform a lifestyle change? We could talk ad nauseam about the different ways long that changes made for the long term can have positive aspects on specific issues: long-term attention to calorie intake will have a benefit to long term weight loss or weight maintenance; a routine jogging schedule will have lasting effects on your someone’s cardiovascular system. But, lifestyle changes mean exactly that: a person changes behaviors considered unhealthy or which have led to some deterioration of aspects of health, and they make these changes, hopefully, for life.
And lifestyle changes are much easier talked about than done. Consider why so many different diet plans evolve over short periods of time, why diet plans go in and then out again, nothing more than fads. It’s because diet plans, especially most types of fad diet plans, are difficult, if not impossible, to stick to. But a lifestyle change based on diet can’t be based on a get-thin-quick routine. There must be everyday accountability, an obvious and easily attainable course of diet throughout the day. And it must be something you want long-term. A lifestyle change needs to be immersive, needs to have parameters to which a person is held accountable. Consider again the diet: if a diet is merely as series of checkmarks on a spread sheet, rather than a plan of eating
towards good health, and an understanding for how the foods we eat have an effect both in the short-term and in the long-term on our bodies health.
