Best Life Diet plan is a popular lifestyle program for losing weight. It is best
known as one of the ways to lose weight endorsed by Oprah Winfrey. Dedicated men
and women following this diet can expect steady weight loss and improved health
over time. It is relatively simple to follow, with only three phases, few
restrictions, and gradual lifestyle changes that promote natural weight loss.
first stage of the diet is known as Phase One, and lasts up to four weeks.
During this phase, dieters slowly begin to exercise and change their eating
habits. Dieters are encouraged to eat three meals and one snack every day, avoid
eating less than two hours before bed, and take vitamins daily. Compared to many
other diet plans, the first phase of the Best Life diet is less restrictive and
gives dieters a better chance at achieving success with this plan.
Two of the diet lasts at least four weeks or longer, depending on your
progress. During this stage, dieters continue a healthy approach to eating and
increased physical activity. Dieters also work on fighting some of the
underlying problems that prevent weight loss, such as emotional eating and
appetite control issues. Dieters monitor their progress with weekly weigh-ins
and develop healthy habits that allow them to reach their desired weight.
Three is the lifetime maintenance phase, a stage found in many lifestyle
weight loss plans. During phase three, dieters try to cut more unhealthy foods
from their diets and eat more nutritious, unprocessed foods. Dieters can still
enjoy all kinds of food, even the foods that are not considered
"healthy," in moderation. This balanced approach to eating allows
people to enjoy the foods they love without feeling deprived or guilty about
what they eat. Dieters also keep up with exercise in order to maintain a healthy
of the best things about the Best Life diet is the variety of foods that you are
allowed to eat. During Phases One and Two, very few foods are actually
restricted, but there are six types of foods that you must avoid. These foods
are soft drinks, foods containing trans-fats, fried foods, white bread, regular
pasta made with refined flour (whole grain pasta is allowed), and high fat
dairy-products. Dieters can resume eating these foods during Phase Three, but
for at least eight weeks during the first two phases, these foods are all
the Best Life diet offers a reasonable and sensible plan for weight loss, but
even the best diet plans cannot work if dieters cannot stick to them. The
hardest aspect of this and other diets is staying committed and being able to
successfully overcome the mental obstacles that prevent weight loss. This is why
weight loss hypnotherapy is an ideal complement to any diet plan. Hypnosis is
extremely effective as a weight loss aid because it treats the underlying issues
that keep people from losing weight.
issue hypnosis successfully treats is emotional eating. People develop the
habit of emotional eating when they eat in response to their feelings, such as
when they feel sad or bored. This created a "conditioned response"
mechanism so people tend to overeat when they experience certain feelings, even
when they are not hungry. Hypnosis works by helping the unconscious mind
disassociate food from our emotions. When we no longer feel unconsciously
compelled to eat, we experience natural appetite suppression and can lose weight
is another area in which hypnosis can help a struggling dieter. Hypnosis
prevents dieters from losing sight of their reasons for wanting to lose weight
and keeps them dedicated. Some of the questions dieters on the Best Life diet
are instructed to ask themselves are why they are overweight, what their reasons
for wanting to lose weight are, and what has prevented them from losing weight
in the past. A good hypnosis program will also tackle these questions to make
people consciously and unconsciously feel motivated to lose weight. Hypnosis
helps people think positively and stay on track with weight loss goals.
to the Best Life diet, the keys to success for losing weight is in portion
control, selecting healthy and satisfying foods, and getting regular exercise.
These things help dieters naturally lose weight. You can achieve this natural
weight loss through hypnosis by learning techniques from a good weight loss
hypnotherapy CD program. Combined with the Best Life diet, hypnosis is powerful
weight loss tool that can help many dieters become fit and slim for life.
