Eating To Lose – The Weight of the World

Over these past couple weeks I have learned one truly incredible lesson about stress’ role in your everyday life.

To give you a little background on what I am talking about, two weeks ago I was asked to leave my job sending me back to the perils of unemployment.  The truth be told, when they asked me to leave my initial response was, ‘alright.’

For the last two years I have been working for and trying to build up people that I would not even associate with on my own volition.  To be honest I am bothered by people that are HANDED everything that they have in life.  Yeah, if I was handed a pile of money I would have it pretty good too.

For months I have been searching for a new position realizing that I need to work for someone that has spent a lifetime working to build their dream.

Once I realized this it was a tremendous weight lifted off my shoulders and subsequently on the scale.

What does this mean for you and your plan for eating to lose weight?

ELIMINATE STRESS!!!!

I have been so stressed out over the past five months that it has lead me to make food choices that my plan for eating to lose weight would absolutely hate.

Even though I was asked to leave my job in all reality I had one foot out the door anyway.

In the two weeks that I have been off it has been magical.  There has been zero stress in my life.

But what about trying to find a new job?

You have me there, it can be stressful, BUT- if you actually cruise the internet and look for how many jobs that are available for your profession you might be surprised.

I know that I will find something as the interest in me has come in spades.

What does this mean for you and your plan for eating to lose weight?

If you should take one thing away from my story it is that you cannot let stress rule your life.  I gave everything to my employer, got beat up, worked ridiculous hours (2700+ hours logged last year) and had my integrity questioned.

If you find yourself in this situation it is probably effecting your plan for eating to lose weight.  These stresses are making you choose the foods that you are eating or causing you to eat more.

Now I am not telling you to go out and quit your job, but what I am telling you to do is put your stressful job under the microscope.  Every position that I have had in my professional life has been stressful as it probably is with your jobs both past and present.

Hard to believe that sometimes the foods that do make up your plan for eating to lose weight do not even matter when it comes to stress.

On a side note- Evolved Fitness has now been put into production.  I have signed a very nice contract with Tate Publishing again to do so.  Part of that contract is going to involve them setting up a website, handling my social media, as well as promotion of both Evolved Eating and Evolved Fitness.

This means that this page is only going to be blog entries only but you will sill have access to those sites if you wish to purchase either of them.

Sadly, once Evolved Fitness hits store shelves I regret to tell you that the PDF version will no longer be available.  I know that might upset people, but I think that an actual physical book will serve you far greater than a PDF.  If you have not purchased a copy of Evolved Eating yet I recommend that you do, if you are not ready to do so that is quite alright too.  It will be there when you are ready.
