The Healthy Marriage Weight Loss Program

Before using the information contained in this website ask your doctor if it is right for you.


If you only have one minute to look at this website and you want to lose weight and strengthen your marriage then first:

Decrease the number of calories you eat and increase the number of calories you use.

Does this sound like what your doctor said? That's because it works. Try the following weight loss tips for three weeks or become a beachbody coach . Weigh yourself first and write down the results.

The
first tip is to drink two cups of water before each of your three balanced meals from coach become a beachbody coach . Also drink two cups of water before each snack. Water is a natural appetite suppressant and will help you decrease your portion sizes without feeling hungry. The "secret" to weight loss is simply to decrease your portion sizes to the point where you are losing no more than two pounds a week. If you are losing more than two pounds a week there is a good chance some of that weight is muscle and you DO NOT want to lose pounds of muscle. If you are losing more than two pounds a week, increase your portion sizes gradually until you are losing just two pounds a week.

The
second tip is to march in place while you watch TV. If you prefer reading over watching TV then stand up while you read. While standing, bend your knees and you will feel your thigh muscles burning calories as you read.

It is easier to maintain a healthy weight than to lose unhealthy pounds. The same is true for your marriage. It is easier to maintain a healthy marriage than to heal an unhealthy marriage.

Take the time and effort to nurture your marriage now so you don't have to heal an unhealthy marriage later. If you are in an unhealthy marriage and want to know how to save my marriage then start the healing process now. The sooner you begin, the easier the healing process will be.

The steps to maintain a healthy marriage and to heal an unhealthy marriage are the same. The only difference is time. You will need to spend more time and effort healing an unhealthy marriage than a healthy one.

The third tip is to increase the level of respect you have for your spouse. The level of respect you have for your spouse impacts how you speak, listen and treat him or her. If you want a healthy marriage it is critical you maintain a high level of respect for your spouse.We have developed a pamphlet to help you take this step over the next three weeks. Click here to read the respect pamphlet.

Weigh yourself again after three weeks. Email the weight loss results as well as any results you have noticed in your marriage to weightloss@healthymarriage.org

The Healthy Marriage Weight Loss Program

Would you like to live a healthier and happier life? Then take better care of yourself and your marriage.

Very few people want to be overweight. In fact, Americans spend between 30-50 billion dollars each year in an effort to lose weight. So, why are 80% of adults over the age of 25 overweight? The answer for most is simple. They have eaten more calories than their bodies could use and most bodies convert those extra calories into fat.

Just as no one wants to be physically unhealthy no one wants an unhealthy marriage filled with pain and misery either. So why do over half of all married couples end up in unhealthy marriages? Once again the answer for most is simple. They have done more to weaken their marriages than they have done to strengthen them.

So what is the “Secret” to losing weight and gaining a healthy marriage?

The “Secret to Weight Loss” is what doctors and researchers have been saying for years.

Decrease the amount of calories you eat and increase the number of calories you use.


The “Secret to a Healthy Marriage” is also what researchers have been saying for years.

Do more to strengthen your marriage and less to weaken it.


The Healthy Marriage Weight Loss Program has been designed to help you take these simple “Secrets” and apply them in your life.

The Healthy Marriage Weight Loss Program is comprised of three main areas, healthy weight loss, strengthening your marriage and improving yourself. All three areas play a significant role in helping you live a happier and healthier life. To better understand why you need to work on all three areas at the same time read each section.

Even if you are single or in a relationship, you should still learn the strengthening marriage tips and practice them. If you wait to learn them until you are married it would be like waiting until you played in the Super Bowl to learn the basic skills and knowledge of football. By learning and practicing these skills now, you will be very comfortable using them once you get married.

The most important thing you can do to lose weight and strengthen your marriage is to take what you are about to learn and use it.
