Five Tips On How To Start Losing Weight

8/17 10:25:42
A lot of people who are trying to lose weight can not stick to a healthy diet and fail. They try almost every kind of dieting plan that comes along, hoping the new one is the one that will finally work. Many fail to understand what prevents them from succeeding and ignore their own mistakes. If you do not want to turn into one of those people, there are some ways around these problems. Here are a couple of pointers to stick to in order to avoid giving in to temptations when trying to lose weight.

1. Keep a diary of everything you eat. Carry around a pen and paper and take notes of everything you eat, even if it is not much - write it down. Take a look at your list at the end of the day, you will be surprised at how many things you eat habitually without thinking about it.

2. Do not starve yourself. This is one of the biggest mistakes you can make when trying to lose weight, and will only make you give up sooner or later and eat anything you can find. It will also make the body go into starvation mode and try to save energy by keeping existing fat. To lose weight you need to eat regular meals, three times a day. Fruits and vegetables can be eaten as snacks between meals.

3. Find other options instead of eating. For many, eating and drinking are acts that bypass rational thinking. Stop yourself every time you reach out for something to eat or drink and ask yourself why you are doing it. If you are doing it because you feel tired, lonely, depressed or stressed and not because you are actually hungry or thirsty, put it back on the shelf. If you feel the need to eat because you are depressed, try something else like reading a book or listening to music. If you are tired, try getting some sleep instead.

4. Do not banish your favorite food. The key to successfully losing weight is moderation, completely banishing your favorite foods will only make you lose your willingness to stick to your diet. Allow yourself to eat something you really like one day per week.

5. Exercise. Start small if you are not used to exercising, there is no need to rush into it. Get a treadmill and some weights and make your own schedule. You can start with just a few minutes per day and gradually increase the time spent exercising. A good goal is to exercise your body 45 minutes per day.
