A lot of people think that losing weight is difficult, but really the only difficult part about it is the self-control. If you can make some firm rules for yourself and stick with them, the rest of it is easy. Really, weight loss comes down to two things: what you eat, and how you exercise. If you use low fat cooking, combined with daily exercise, everything will work out perfectly for you. Although good sensible low fat cooking and exercise will not necessarily lead you to shed pounds at the same rate as using the latest fad dieting will, you will lose weight, and you will keep it off. Low fat diet cooking, using a healthy mix of lean meat, vegetables, grains, and fruits, as well as good portion control, is the surest way to look and feel a great.
Of course, the trick isn’t low fat cooking. The trick is low fat cooking that tastes fantastic. You need to be able to cook a variety of different foods in a more healthy manner than you are used to doing. That means not only learning low fat cooking, but low-fat baking and low fat grilling as well. All of this takes time, effort, and to some degree, money, but it sure is worth it. If you can use low-fat cooking to create a diet menu that you know that you will like, it will make it so much easier for you to keep the weight off after you lose it. And after all, what is the point to losing weight if you can’t keep it off?no point at all as far as I am concerned!
Of course, if you want to get into the exciting world of low-fat cooking, it helps to have other people to work with. If you are the only one in your house who wants to eat low fat cooking, it will be hard, if not impossible, to succeed. If you live with your family, and they are all being delicious steaks and refried beans with added lard every night, there is just simply no way that you’re going to stick with your low-fat diet. I’ve tried it before, and it does not work. Take my word for it, teamwork is essential for any healthy lifestyle. Whether it is low fat cooking, daily exercise, or a regular sleep and work routine, cooperating with other people will always help and never hurt.
