Weight Loss Tips That Work

28 Apr

Nowadays weight loss messages have become ubiquitous. We are constantly bombarded by weight loss tools and stories on TV, the newspapers, and online. Warnings of the dangers of not losing weight appear on every news outlet. Just Google the work “Diet” and you will get 208,000,000 results on the subject. Weight loss is commonly broached in doctor’s offices,  in the education system, and in the work place. Here a a few weight loss tips that actually work:

Tip #1 – Stop Procrastinating

You cannot see results by merely talking about weight loss . You’ve got to take tangible action. Within a few short weeks, you’ll notice the results of your hard work and you’ll become even more motivated to exercise.

Tip #2 – Consistency is the key

Consistent exercise and a good nutrition plan that allows for “cheat” days will help you to avoid the dieting roller coaster. For long-lasting weight loss results, you should aim to lose an average of .5-2lbs/week and 1% body fat/month . You’ll have to modify your diet for lower caloric consumption and you’ll also need to track your macronutrient (fats, proteins, and carbohydrates) intake on a daily basis.

Tip #3 – Avoid TV fads, Diet Pills, and Prepackaged foods

Avoid the latest weight loss gimmicks, pills, fad diets, prepackaged meals, and surgical procedures! The key to long-term sustainable weight management is education, consistent exercise, and wise food choices! You should plan to exercise 3-5X/week and you should also eat a nutritionally-balanced diet of Carbs, Fats, and Proteins for optimal fat loss rather than chase the “Magic Bullet” solution that can help you “drop 10lbs in 1 week”.

Tip #4 – Turn your Weight Loss Journey Into a Lifestyle

Weight gain has become ubiquitous. With the rise of technology and office jobs, many find themselves inactive throughout the day.  Prepackaged meals are consumed now more than ever before to save time and become more productive. However, if you want to lose weight and keep it off, , you’ve got to change your mindset about food and exercise. You need to think of food as the type of fuel you put into your body rather than the pleasure it gives your taste buds. Successful fat loss is really about making sustainable lifestyle changes that include consistent exercise and better food choices.

Tip #5 – Forget the scale

Don’t become obsessed with the scale and don’t let your emotions swing with weight gain or weight loss. Keep in mind that your mood, circumference measures, heart health, and cholesterol levels will change even if your weight does not. In time, you’ll  become leaner and your clothes will fit better. You can make health and fitness a lifestyle by shifting your focus away from the scale and by finding the joy in its ancillary benefits.
