Have you ever wondered what makes some people thin, and some not? Is it just diet? Are there habits that makes some people naturally thinner than others? There are some athletes who are reed-thin and others who are thick and muscular. Both groups probably get lots of exercise; both groups eat specific diets. Why do they end up with different body types? Is there something you can do to influence your own natural body type? Are there things you can do so you don’t have to focus on dieting so much?
I recently read Bob Harper’s Skinny Habits: The 6 secrets of thin people.
- Plan how to deal with situations so they don’t have to medicate with food.
- Push back instead of allowing setbacks to overwhelm them.
- Change their environment so they surround themselves with things that support their goal, rather than derail it.
- Challenge themselves so they’re not bored all the time.
- Rest, sleep, relax so they can have energy to be engaged, excited and focused.
- Dress for thinness, and use their clothes to flaunt their body, not hide it.
Who are these skinny people Bob’s been talking to? Is this true? I happen to know some skinny people who are not particularly healthy, who don’t rest, or plan, who are far from being role models for healthy living. But I know they are probably the exception.
If you’re a “skinny person”, please tell me if Bob’s list rings true.
My health goal this week is to incorporate these 6 habits. I’m giving myself a few days to focus on building these habits and seeing if it makes a difference. I’ll keep you posted.
