If you are serious about loosing weight then you must have seen enough websites, read enough books and spoken to enough friends to discuss what works best. Now after receiving that entire information overload, you need to work out what you can adapt and use for your own plan. So simple to suggest and so difficult to implement. You can stop tearing your hair out as by the time you finish reading this, you will know just what you have to do.
Don’t expect miracles, sure I would like to loose large quantities of weight in as short a time frame as possible, but if that doesn’t happen don’t get disheartened. Try and figure out how many days, months and years it has taken you to accumulate all that fat. Now give it time to dissolve and disappear from your life. Be practical and realistic in your approach.
Reduce the level of stress you face everyday. Try and find an alternative to things that stress you out. Instead of driving to work, take the bus or train. You will get additional time in which you can relax with deep breathing exercises and come fresh to the work place. At home delegate chores to family and ensure that you don’t get stuck with the lion’s share of the work. Stress reduces your metabolism and will result in more food being stored than burnt as fuel.
Eat six small meals everyday. No junk food but healthy stuff with lots of fruits and vegetables included. This will trigger your body’s metabolism to speed up as it will need to digest meals quickly before the next meal comes in. Make sure you eat at the same time everyday so that the body is expecting the meal.
Drink at least quarter your body weight in water in a day. It will help to flush out toxins, fecal matter, and other inhibiting substances that cause digestive problems. It will cleanse the system and make the body loose weight faster. If you can’t drink so much plain water add some lemon juice but don’t add any sugar. That way you will benefit from the extra vitamins and still avoid the extra fat.
Exercise regularly. A simple half hour walk done daily and regularly over the months will help you keep you weight under control. In case you need to loose weight more weight you can add some aerobic exercises to your day. Usually three days a week is good enough to shed some extra weight.
No matter how hard we try our lifestyle makes it impossible for us to get our daily nutrients and vitamin requirements. This is where food supplements come in. Make sure that the company you choose is known for its quality and standards. These are the building blocks of your body and you don’t want to put rubbish into it.
Advertise the fact that you are loosing weight even before you start the process. Fear of criticism from your peer group will act a great motivator. As will their sincere compliments when you start to show the difference. Your self confidence will get a boost and make sure that once you are down to a healthy weight that you maintain it.
