Weight Loss Tweaking Your Lifestyle

By Lisa Beverley Subscribe to RSS | November 26th 2011 | Views:

Despite our tendency to overeat national, sub-exercise, and grow steadily heavier and more out of shape, we all want to be slim and fit, and attractive. Our culture rewards the thin and beautiful, to see how we devour celebrity gossip, mesmerized by the look and energy of our current favorites.

Why the discrepancy between our aspirations and our reality? There are a plethora of reasons, most of which date back to the simple fact that life gets in the way.

"I would reduce my food intake," we thought, "But I have to attend all these functions work and have little control over the meals served." "I would like to be fit," he complained, "but there is no free time and I can not afford a personal trainer, as I see movie stars. "" I have really wanted to take care of my skin and my body, "I regret," But I'm so busy that a quick shower and a blow of moisturizer is all that can fit into my schedule. "

It would be so wonderful to have a lot of free time, to plan our days, cooking low-fat, healthy meals, exercise without time constraints, to be able to consent without the pressure of deadlines. Unfortunately, our lives are too hectic for that to happen in the foreseeable future. We raise our hands in frustration and join the legions of people who are overweight and unfit, or we can make a personal plan that fits your lifestyle, taking us where we want to go, though not as quickly or completely as your preference.

Your life, your time, the demands and responsibilities they face, vary individually. You have to figure out what works for you, and what realistically can not be accommodated. Here are some ideas:

1. Diet

Eating on the go, at your desk, or on the rubber chicken circuit, cause havoc, even with the best laid diet plans. If you weigh up to one pound more than you wanted, try to identify where it goes astray.

If fast food on their way to an appointment is your downfall, watch what you order. Almost all drive-thrus these days offer salads. The problems can be minimized salad by tossing the bag of croutons (fried) and the omission of packaged dressings (fat-laden). Bring your own individual package of low-calorie dressing, opt for iced tea (no sugar), black coffee or a diet soda, and avoid the queues full of sugar like the plague they are.

If lunch at your desk, ask yourself what are you eating? If takeout is, by all means have a burger or a sandwich. Just throw the bread or cake and eat with plastic knife and fork, cut into pieces the size of raisins that will fill up fast. French fries and onion rings? You just do not want to go.

Is your office is always full of snacks and goodies (like most of them seem to be these days)? When the sandwiches come, go to the bathroom or better yet, take a walk around the building to establish "no" power and a clear vision of goodies from your head.

If business lunches, dinners, banquets and meetings are the terrible obstacles, plan ahead. Lunch is relatively easy: salad (with its own dressing room, of course) or fish and cheese are available almost anywhere. For dinner, try low-calorie two appetizers instead of an entree. Best of all is something we have to work on - crab legs, shrimp shell, an artichoke (hold the Dutch) - take a long time and nobody will notice how little they are eating.

Banquets are particularly difficult, because it's a plate hit in front of you, full of food that never comes to a choice. Cut any protein and vegetables into small pieces there and chew slowly. Spread the rest over the plate and play with him to delay the onset of a syrupy dessert. Take a cup of black coffee and places it directly in front of you to keep the eager beaver waiter trying to slide that follows a pie plate on the table.

Home entertainment creates a different set of problems because usually you know the hostess and want to avoid creating even the slightest doubt. Resorting to allergies, since nobody wants to see out of the hives in the middle of his party. Keeping a club soda or mineral water with you and no one will notice that you are not drinking.

Over a period of time, these small changes can have a significant impact on your weight. If you're hungry when you get home, make sure you have some liquid protein shake or a health care available to complete your daily nutritional needs.
