What Tibor Deme can say in an interview about
How We Can Achieve a Healthy Lifestyle:

Gaining weight creates pathways for illness and disease in the body. Understanding the reasons why this happens is the secret to achieving our health and wellness goals:  

1. The Western Lifestyle

Unfortunately, our diet is high in processed foods, which in turn are high in sodium and sugar, and other chemicals. The very foundation of our diet causes us to crave or even be addicted to these ingredients, which, over time, create pathways to illness and disease in the body. Sodium and sugar activate “reward” or “pleasure” eating which initiates an undesired and unhealthy habitual eating pattern. Consuming large amounts of sugar and sodium can lead to weight gain.  

2. Our Consumption Level

Going out to eat in restaurants or consuming fast, time-saving food is convenient. But food portions are much higher in the US than in those of other countries. According to the NIH (National Institute of Health), marketplace food portions have increased in size and now exceed federal standards. Portion sizes began to grow in the 1970s, rose sharply in the 1980s, and have continued in parallel with increasing body weights. 

3. The Chaos in the Supermarket

While Nutrition labeling on food is now law in most states, most labels are provided in the metric system—a system we don’t use in America. When the nutrition label states a portion size as “100 grams,” for example, we can’t visualize it. We think in terms of tablespoons, cups, and pounds. Additionally, our grocery stores contain thousands of choices on similar items. It can be difficult for the average consumer to know and understand which is the healthiest choice. 

4. The Diet Industry

Most fad diets such as the Atkins, Keto, or Nutrisystem plans may cause short-term weight loss, but they’re unsustainable. Excess animal-based protein and fat in the body contribute to high blood pressure and Type II Diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Excess sodium, as can be found in Nutrisystem, Jenny Craig, and other frozen food-based diets, and can also cause high blood pressure. High sodium results in the body’s dehydration which can cause slower nutrient transfer on the cellular level, so the essential minerals the body needs for optimal performance are not getting to where they need to go on time, or simply it gets delayed. Once we go off these diets, we tend to gain the weight back—in fact, 80% of people who go on diets such as these gain the weight back and often gain more. The only long-term solution is the development of a healthy lifestyle. 

Avoid those common pitfalls

    • Small steps lead to staggering changes. Studies show that long-term weight loss isn’t possible without BEHAVIORAL MODIFICATION. We must develop new, healthier habits with consistency, patience, and time.
    • Strengthen our immune system as much as possible by consuming large amounts of whole foods, including fruits and vegetables. 
    • The LifeBoostFit app is designed to guide and support the creation of a healthy lifestyle through Nutritional Guidance, Menus and Recipes, Fitness, and Behavioral Modification. The only proven way to lose weight and keep it off is to develop new, healthier habits and change our eating behavior.

The goal isn’t losing weight—the goal is to live a healthy lifestyle! Once we create and establish this way of living, we lose weight organically and naturally.
