Losing Weight Should NOT be your goal!

Posted by Plantraw™ Plantraw.com™ on

Your goal should be healthy living. Weight loss is a side effect of a healthy lifestyle, which consists primarily of three factors: Good nutrition, exercise, and stress avoidance.[1] [2]

Dieting and starving oneself are not a long-term solution to managing weight. Severe restriction of food intake deprives cells of the crucial tools they need to keep the body well functioning. These tools are vitamins, minerals and other micronutrients that the body needs in order to fight off disease, maintain hormonal balance, run the digestive system, keep the cardiovascular system pumping, enable good brain functioning, and otherwise manage millions of other tasks throughout the body every second of the day.

Moreover, drastic steps often result in gaining back all the lost weight, and then some.

Nutrition, physical activity, and stress avoidance are paramount. In this blog we'll get in the weeds of habits, with tons of useful tips on manageable steps toward a wholesome, sustainable approach.

We'll go slow and easy and focus on your health. Incidentally you may start noticing that you are losing weight; but keep your focus on your overall health.

In this journey toward a healthier, happier you, addiction to refined carbs may be one of the most damaging stumbling blocks. Refined flour and sugar provide instant gratification to cravings, similar to illicit drugs.

In paving a smoother path for you, we have crafted nutritious snacks that can easily knock any processed sweet out of your diet, replacing it with delicious satisfaction without the harm. Plantraw's products have been compared to some of the tastiest snacks out there, yet they are rich in fiber and micronutrients, they contain no added sugar, and they satiate and nourish.

But this is only part of the solution. A whole lifestyle has to be modified, and  embarking with you on this journey, we'll make it fun. You can sign up here for our newsletter.
