Learn To Say ‘No’ Now And Weight Loss Will Soon Follow

Filed under: Low-carb Tips — @ May 11, 2006

Weight loss is not an easy thing. I know I’m preaching to the choir on this point, but I just wanted to acknowledge that fact up front before I tell you what I’m gonna say next.

If you learn to say “no” to some things now, then weight loss will not be that far behind. You might be thinking, “Oh, it can’t be THAT easy!”

Here is a practical example of how it can work:

You’re in a restaurant and the waitress asks you what kind of drink you would like. The first thing that pops into your mind is a Coke (NO!), but then you order a Diet Coke. When she returns with your drink, the waitress suggests an appetizer of some potato skins (NO!), however you politely decline.

You are having trouble choosing what you would like to order and the waitress again chimes in with a fantastic description of their Chicken Strips Meal deal with Mashed Potatoes and Corn as well as dinner rolls (NO, NO, NO and NO!!!). You choose the Chargrilled Chicken Salad instead without the croutons (GOOD BOY!) and she asks if you would like Thousand Island dressing with that (NO!), and you tell her you would like Ranch dressing instead.

The meal arrives and you enjoy every last bite of it when the waitress comes back again. This time she suggests you try for dessert their new dripping with fudge sauce Chocolate Cake a la mode (NO!) and you again politely decline realizing that you are staying committed to the low-carb lifestyle 100% by making good decisions about what you put in your mouth.

Was there anything about the above scenario that was especially difficult? Read more more about this simple, yet very powerful concept of just saying “no” to bring about lasting weight loss by clicking here.
