Diabesity Challenge Tip: Gratitude Aids Weight Loss

I used to do a weekly syndicated radio show and my favorite part of the broadcast was when Dr. Whitaker's Diabesity Challengelisteners called in with their health concerns and I tried to offer solutions.

But before callers told me about their medical problems, I had one requirement: They had to name one thing they were grateful for.

Responses were diverse. Many people were thankful for their families, friends, God, their health, or the opportunity to live in this country. Others mentioned jobs, cars, pets, my radio show, and even hot running water!

The reason I chose to solicit gratefulness is because it instantly improves your well-being. No matter what shape you’re in, a sense of gratitude will make you feel better. I am convinced that no one can achieve optimum health—especially not weight loss—without a heavy dose of thankfulness for the positive things in life.

With Thanksgiving just a few days away, I encourage you to take stock of your blessings and to make a point each and every day to recognize and honor the many gifts you enjoy.

I hope this information helps you as you continue your weight loss journey. Have another great week and a blessed Thanksgiving and keep up with the program…it works!
