What’s Love Got to Do With It?

“All You Need is Love” sang the Beatles in 1967.  At Gene Smart, we know a lot about teaching people to eat & exercise to achieve more energy, weight loss and lower whole body inflammation.  But, for most, without the love & support of friends & family, learning the ins & outs of healthy eating can be just an intellectual exercise, and never yield the desired result of a healthy lifestyle that sticks.

Identifying your allies and asking for their support is an important foundation for making lasting changes in your life.  Change is hard.  Our lives are heavily influenced by our genes and past habits. Everyday, we are bombarded with a food culture where our most convenient foods are rarely the healthiest.  For most, willpower alone is not enough to be successful over time – we need supportive allies to keep us motivated, encourage us, hold us accountable, and show us grace when we have a setback.

Often, willpower is not enough when trying to lose weight or start a new eating & exercise regimen. Studies have shown that the support of a tight-knit community group produces greater sustainability. Weight that is lost stays lost and exercise becomes more of a habit.

Get started by reaching out to a friend or family member today, and ask for their support.  Select someone that you trust.  Share your goals and your plans.  Give them a copy of the Gene Smart Anti-Inflammatory Diet Go Guide. Let them know how they can help.  Be specific, if you can.  For example, you might set a time to check in each Friday evening.  Don’t limit yourself to just one ally.  As your allies encourage you, this community support will become integrated into your efforts to be and stay healthy.

“The Gene Smart Program is really life changing,” reports Lynn K. after experiencing our anti-inflammatory diet approach. “It addresses health as a lifestyle choice, not a diet fad. And having people around for support and to rejoice in each other’s victories gives you the motivation to succeed, no matter what your goals are.”

At Gene Smart, we would love to be one of your allies.  Join our Gene Smart Wellness community on Facebook.

Do you have a particular person or group that you turn to for support? Share your thoughts with our Facebook community or send us a tweet on Twitter. We’d love to hear!

All you need is love (all together now)

All you need is love (everybody)

All you need is love, love, love is all you need.
