How to Lose Weight Permanently
Many people know that most weight loss programs in the market are not really good to lose weight and keep that excess of weight off in a permanent way. The following is an article I found in an article directory that talks about how to do that without using hard exercises, or diet pills or extensive dieting.
But before reading the article I want you to know that there are 4 main facts about weight loss:
The first thing that you must know is that it takes time to accomplish your dream of a nice figure. The second fact is that you must change your eating habits, it is a very crucial step.
The third is that a good diet doesn't mean eating less but it means eating in a healthy way. And the final fact is that the bigger enemy of your weight loss goals is hunger, so you must eat in a proper way (avoid ultra low calorie meals, eat healthy fats) in order to avoid hunger.
In order to make for you easier to lose weight is good to give yourself a good incentive, this incentive together with a det of step-by-step targets will help you to achieve your goal in stages (not trying to lose 20 pounds in one day!), so please don't be in a rush - this takes time.
Also you can get support from your family or a friend. having big support makes a great difference in your program. Plan in advance what you are going to eat, and please, to avoid hunger keep healthy snacks in the refrigerator.
It's very important that you are flexible enough to overcome bad days without giving up your program. So please don't get hysterical when this happens.
Is it difficult to lose weight in a permanent way? The weight loss industry tells you that it is not, you just have to take this pill or follow that diet or buy this piece of equipment and everything will be fine, they tell you. In fact, as you know, we spend a lot of money on weight loss and yet we are still overweight.
But, yes it's easy to lose weight fast, most diets on the market today will help you lose weight relatively quickly, but the point I am trying to make here is that this does not mean that is a permanent weight loss, most people regain their weight within a few weeks/months.
Permanent weight loss is only possible when there is a substantial change in your eating habits. A change that will allow your body to burn excess body fat permanently, after all we don't become overweight as a result of a few months of bad eating habits.
It's about making a real commitment to make healthy choices each and every day, if you're not ready to make some big and fundamental changes, then losing weight will be permanently hard, believe me.
Here below are a couple of tips for permanent weight loss; these are things you will need to look at in order to get yourself on a healthy path.
You have to take a good breakfast, if you don’t have time in the morning then please eat a healthy cereal bar, which would be even better than eating nothing at all.
Believe me; it is very hard to have permanent weight loss when in your eating plan you do not include breakfast.
Remove all forms of sugar from your diet. Fruit is high in naturally occurring sugar. Try to not drink juice. Eat an orange or an apple if you really want to eat fruit but do not take fruit juice.
Once you have achieved your ideal weight, then eat the fruit but do exercise. Also cut out bread, if you really need to eat bread then eat whole grain wheat but no white bread.
Have a healthy snack between meals, this way you put a limit to hunger pains, especially if the snack is eaten one hour before a meal.
It is possible to lose weight through diet alone, but ideally you have to workout in a consistent way. You only need to set up a good workout schedule that you can follow each week.
You are overweight because you are trapped inside a set of habits that keep you from losing weight permanently. There are no quick ways to losing weight and keeping it off.
Weight loss is a big goal, so you have to have something else to motivate you, because as you already know, it takes time to lose weight. In the meantime, find more reasons to be thin and healthy, for example, having more energy.
Obviously you still could enjoy occasional treats after you cross small predefined milestones, may one day a week can be used as a treat day.
That it’s the main article. As you can see the main idea of an ideal weight loss program is to have enough discipline and determination to do that particular program.
How many diets, products or programs have you tried with no success? Think about it and you will find the reason is because the lack of discipline to do a lasting weight loss program.
You eventually may find that you already have the willpower to stick with your diet and reach your target. The fact is to lose weight permanently you need to make radical changes to your lifestyle, so start setting your standards and believing that you can, it will definitely help.
