Have you tried losing weight the traditional way and it didn’t really work? Or have you lost weight but quickly gained it back?
Don’t give up on your battle with extra pounds, but check out these alternative weight loss methods that might work for you like a charm.
Do you want to lose weight but aren’t motivated enough? Do you struggle getting into the right mindset to shed pounds? Stop dieting now and practice a bit of self-love instead.
This might sound a bit crazy, but it will all make sense in a minute. Self-love is a very important ingredient of weight loss and some speculate that you can’t lose weight in a healthy way without developing a positive relationship with yourself.
Once you start to love yourself, you will automatically start to eat better and exercise because you’ll want to take better care of yourself. Self-love is the best motivation!
So, try to forgive yourself and work on developing a positive relationship with your body and mind. Healthy weight loss when you’re angry with yourself is almost impossible because you will subconsciously sabotage your diet and workout plan in order to punish yourself.
You also must forgive yourself for gaining weight in order to start your path to a healthy weight. But, self-love doesn’t stop with weight loss.
Many people get depression after losing weight, so in order to avoid that, you must actively maintain a healthy relationship with your body.
Maybe you already used some homeopathic remedies (arnica for bruising or Oscillococcinum for the flu), but you probably didn’t think to try it for weight loss.
Homeopathy is based on a principle that claims that substances that cause the symptoms also have to power to cure them.
Here’s an example: when you’re peeling an onion, your eyes tend to water and burn and you might develop a runny nose.
If you experience similar symptoms during a cold, like runny nose and watery eyes, a homeopathic solution would be to take Allium Cepa (red onion) remedy to allow the body to heal itself.
In the case of weight loss, homeopathy aims to stimulate the body to boost its metabolism and burn more fat.
So, if regular dieting doesn’t work for you, you can try introducing weight loss drops that will boost your fat metabolizing.
Many people report great weight loss success, especially when they combine homeopathic drops with their prescribed diet.
This killer combo can melt away the fat from places other diets can’t touch. During this process, fat will get released and used as energy, instead of being stored on your body, which will result in weight loss.
Try out this method practiced by thousands of happy users and see how it feels for you.
