Ever wondered how people in healthy regions effortlessly maintain excellent health? They don't obsess over diet, calorie intake, carbs, or working out. In fact, they don't engage in many healthy behaviors advocated by popular weight loss and diet programs.
My understanding of healthy regions comes not only from studying them but also from growing up in one. Born and raised on a Greek island, I observed that being thin and healthy was the norm. People lived long, disease-free lives, with conditions like cancer, Alzheimer's, and dementia being rare or nonexistent.
In Greece, no one worried about their diet or exercise, yet most people were in great shape. Why? All the healthy behaviors that kept us fit were habitual, requiring no conscious thought. Our fitness program was on autopilot, leaving our conscious minds to focus on more important things like enjoying life, rather than stressing over diets and workouts.
In healthy regions, all the behaviors that keep people fit are habitual, unlike the conscious behaviors promoted by most weight loss and diet programs.
This is why individuals in healthy regions can maintain their fitness effortlessly, while many struggle to maintain results achieved through popular weight loss methods.
To lose weight, get in shape, and maintain results effortlessly, ensure that the healthy behaviors contributing to your weight loss can become habitual with practice.
For instance, counting calories, points, or measuring food can never become habitual. Instead, focus on your hunger, eat less often, and consume meals slowly and mindfully. These three behaviors not only prove effective but can also become completely habitual with some practice.
