The number 1 trick to lose weight easily

The number 1 trick to lose weight easily

Counting calories is our biggest hobby. But if you want to lose weight, there is something more important than numbers.

The secret:the right mindset.

In addition to diet and regular exercise, your weight is determined by another factor; by how you feel about your body. Starting a diet with poor self-esteem puts you at a disadvantage—when you haven't even started yet. As long as you are negative about yourself, you cannot expect positive effects from any diet.

Chronic stress on your body causes your body to produce extra cortisol. And that is exactly the problem:cortisol stimulates the feeling of hunger and signals your body that you need calories.

How do you turn this knowledge into a way to lose weight? You can read that in the April issue of Santé. Don't miss it, it's only in store until Tuesday. You can also order Santé in our webshop.
