Body Psyche – Our Troubled View of Our Bodies

By / 15th November, 2017 / Psychology / No Comments

Every day the media blasts us with images on television, the internet, and in magazines that are designed to do one thing and one thing only, make you feel bad about yourself. Playing on your desires to look or feel a certain way is the number one way to make you buy their products. They tell you that you aren’t thin enough, or good looking enough and if you buy their products then you can be happy like all of the “beautiful people” in their ads. Unfortunately, advertising like this has led to many of their customers developing serious health problems.

Body image is a serious concern for most people. Face it you, like everyone else, want to look good and have the attention and adoration that comes with that. And, since these companies play off of these desires by making you feel bad about yourself it’s, unfortunately, all too likely that you might possibly develop health or mental problems trying to obtain a certain type of body.

Extreme Photoshopping To Shame Us

According to the The National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders eight million people in the United States have anorexia nervosa, bulimia, and associated disorders. Other people exercise themselves to the point of exhaustion and beyond. All of this is simply to look like the people we see in the media.

Unfortunately, even taking these dangerous steps to look like the models and stars you see in the media will never be enough. Now these companies are digitally altering already beautiful models to make them even more “attractive.” This is only perpetuating a culture that values looks over people’s mental and physical well-being.

Be Happy With Who You Are Now

That’s why Terin’s Smart Weigh is doing things differently. We believe that it is more important for people to be happy and healthy than trying to conform to certain, unattainable standards. Beautiful comes in all types of body shapes and sizes and we are committed to helping you live a happier, healthier life, whatever that might mean for you.

Our supplements were developed not to help you lose a ton of weight quickly, but to reach attainable goals and live an all-around healthier life. That’s because crash and fad diets are not only dangerous but can, in fact, make you gain more weight over the long run.

Terin’s is the Smart Weigh to Lose Weight

Terin’s Smart Weigh’s extensive line of supplements is specifically designed to complement a healthy diet and exercise. We want to help you make better all-around life choice and become the best version of you that you can without jeopardizing your mental or physical well-being.

If you want to lose weight, keep weight off, increase energy, or just live a healthier life we have the supplements that can help you reach your goals.

Lose Weight on Your Own Terms

Your body image is an important part of who you are and how you see yourself. Don’t let anybody tell you how you should look or what type of body you should have. As long as you are constantly working on yourself and trying to be the best version of you that you can you are doing things right. We are all beautiful in our own ways and it’s time that we started accepting ourselves and living all-around, healthier lives.

Terin’s Smart Weigh doesn’t want to bring you down to get you to use our products, we want to empower our customers. We want to help them on their path to a better lifestyle. When you look better you feel better, but you should never sacrifice health for superficial good looks. When you learn to feel comfortable in your own skin, you will feel happier than ever.

Losing the Same 10 Pounds Over and Over Again

In her excellent book, Why Diets Make Us Fat: The Unintended Consequences of Our Obsession With Weight Loss, Dr. Sandra Aamodt explains why diets invariably fail and 80-100% of the people who lose weight on diets put that weight back.  She says it’s like losing the same 10 pounds over and over again. Diets may work for a while but almost all result in failure sometime down the line.  We become that person known as the yo-yo dieter.

Our Mind Decides What Our Weight Should Be

Dr. Aamodt refers to this as the set-point theory which means our mind decides what weight range our body should stay in and refers to this as the “defended weight range”.  This ;weight range fluctuation stabilizes between 10-15 pounds.  I think when we’re younger it’s easier for our brain to leave one range and enter another, and another until it finally stabilizes where we are as mature adults.

It then becomes necessary to train our mind to be comfortable at a lower weight range again. This requires a life style change, not dieting.  And a life style change is easier to achieve because we know it’s a permanent change, not something we do for the 10 pound loss.  In fact, a life style change should automatically result in loss of weight over time.  Because in a sense we’re not trying to lose weight, rather we are trying to live healthier.

Terin’s supplements are your friend during this time because while the life style change is kicking in, The Essential Weigh or Complete Weigh can hasten the weight loss and help suppress your appetite and increase your metabolism as you adjust to your new life. There are no magic bullets for losing weight, but you don’t want magic, you want practical, long-term results, and that comes from using smart supplements and a life style change.
