Reaching a Weight Loss Target
Following a diet to achieve weight loss and keeping it off, for some, may seem an impossible ambition. Exercise is an important part of any weight loss regime. When starting out on an exercise program, it is easy to find determination, however many people soon find that after a few days, the motivation often wanes. How should you approach your exercise regime to maximise the possibility of success?
But, before we start, beware,, fasting to lose weight rarely achieves permanent weight loss
Think about what you really want to accomplish, what goals you have, and then you are ready to begin. Set targets to achieve in small steps - say set a target for the end of next month, and then take each subsequent month in turn. Is there a certain number of pounds you want to lose? Is your goal to feel more refreshed and regain lost energy, or is your health the motivating factor? These are the strategies that most successful slimmers use.
You need to monitor your weekly weight loss. Set a time that you will weigh yourself each week and then stick to it. Log what you eat in a food journal each day. A log of what you eat will bring home to you exactly what and how much you are eating, which will often lead to better food choices.
Many people believe that they can only lose weight by feeling hungry - that is an incorrect belief. Even on a weight loss diet, you can eat plenty of healthy, low calorie foods to fill your tummy. Feeling hungry indicates that you are not choosing appropriate foods. Feeling hungry can also tempt you to binge eat on unhealthy snacks. Any long-term successful weight loss diet involves a degree of organisation. Plan your meals and snacks for each day and packing them to take along where ever you go. If you are working, it is sensible to take a packed lunch with you. Packed lunches are a known quantity and can be fitted into your overall food schedule easily. Canteen lunches or takeaway meals are unknown quantities and can often blow you calorie limits without you knowing. On the other hand eating at home will prove to be more economical and it will also reduce your calorie and fat intake.
As previously said, exercise is also an important part of any weight loss plan. Aim to exercise in short bursts and often rather than just one or two long sessions a week. Exercising every day is not not required - aim for what you are comfortable with. If working out is boring to you, start taking fun things you already enjoy and see how you can mix a bit of exercise with it. For example, if you like dancing, taking a class is a great way to workout while really enjoying yourself.
If your home is full of bad food options, it can be difficult to cease consuming them. This easy to follow tactic will lead to there being healthy snacks in your fridge and cupboard, that will be what you reach for. Aim to fill your fridge and pantry with healthy choices such as fruits, vegetables, and low-fat proteins. The simplest way to cut back on your junk food consumption is to not buy it at all. Once you replace the diet-unfriendly foods with the healthier options,then you have set yourself up to make better food decisions.
When embarking on a weight loss diet plan, always let those close to you know. Although they can't lose the weight for you, they can be supportive and provide the inspiration to help you achieve your goal. Also, discussing you ambitions openly with other can help you from giving up. Very few friend will be jealous of your plans, some may even want to join you in your weight loss ambitions. Family and friends act as a sort of select help group and they will help you overcome any problem you're having and help you get back on track to achieving your weight loss goal.
