The Power of Changing One Thing
Every week I want to bring you a short actionable tip that you can implement right away into your lifestyle to make a powerful change. This week the title of the tip is “The Power of Changing One Thing.” What do I mean by the power of changing one thing? Well, sometimes we think that in order to make a change in our habits or lifestyle it needs to be drastic. Contrary to the point my friend. A lot of times what happens is when we make a change to our daily habits or lifestyle that is so dramatically different than what we are used to the tendency is to fall right back into the same old bad habits and routine. So instead of getting too crazy all at once I want you to think of one thing that you are currently eating or consuming that you could cut out of your diet, which would help lead to cutting out extra calories.
You see the secret to losing weight is simple, make small changes and losing weight starts to compound over time. The Power of just “One Thing” can make a huge difference. Let’s look at an example:
Starbucks Cafe Latte prepared with nonfat milk, about 160 calories
Starbucks Cafe Latte prepared with soy, about 210 calories
Starbucks Cafe Latte prepared with whole milk, about 260 calories
*based on calorie content (Grande Size) Provided by Starbucks web site
Okay, now we will make a small change and do some math. The small change we are going to make is we are going to cut out the Café Latte that is prepared with Whole milk. A grand total of 260 calories.
260 x 7 = 1,820 a week
Multiply 1,820 a week by 26 weeks (six months) = 47,320 calories
Now divide that by 3500 calories, which is one pound of fat and you could potentially lose:
You would lose around 13 and a half pounds just by changing one thing!
Find your one thing and start seeing some change!
