Life Retreat’s Friday Weekly Round Up


Have you ever sat down and wondered what it means when you say “you’re dieting”? Well, it usually means you should avoid that, you can’t eat this and there’s no way you can eat THAT!

However, it’s not only the food you stop eating that makes it a real diet. You also have to eat loads of vegetables and everything “fat-free”. But, why doesn’t it ever work? Well, you’re essentially changing your entire eating routine from something you enjoyed to torture. You end up punishing yourself every time you slip up, but because you feel so deprived, it’s hard not to!


There’s no reason to starve your body when you’re trying to lose weight. You just need to change the way you diet. So, start eating a wholesome breakfast, snacking on seeds, nuts or nut butter between meals, eat lean meat, whole-grains and veggies for lunch and something similar for dinner and give yourself a cheat day! Then you’ll see your diet start to work for you.

Here’s a wrap up of what you missed here at Life Retreat. Have a great weekend!

Three Habits That Aid Weightloss

Three Habits That Aid Weightloss

I’ll be honest: I’m very impatient. When I shop online, I want my item to be delivered immediately. And, if I order at the drive-thru, I want to immediately collect it and leave. I also expect the same with weightloss. If I get on a weightloss journey, I want to see results – fast! Last week as I was researching weight loss tips for my new post, I came across a fascinating study showing how rapid weight loss is actually key to permanent weight loss. Slow and steady usually wins the race, but most of us are not patient enough to finish the race. Click here to read on.
