What Are the Ways to Start Losing Weight?

Mar 21, 2008
There are some people who would really like to lose weight. However, they will also find it very difficult to do so because they cannot stick to the diets. They may even try various dieting plans in order to find one which can help them to lose weight. Yet they may still be disappointed.

In fact, one of the reasons they consistently fail to lose weight is that they do not try to understand why they fail. They keep making the same mistake when they are on diet. The human brain displays a remarkable ability to ignore anything we do not want to face directly. And as a result some will claim that they try to stick to the diet even if they did not do so.

You need to eat consciously if you want to be successful in sticking to the diet. One of the ways to make yourself more conscious about what you eat is to write down everything you have eaten on a notebook. Yes you have to really write down everything you have eaten, even if it is only a small candy. You will be surprised by how much you have eaten.

You have to understanding that in most cases we do eating and drinking are acts which will bypass our rational thinking. You may eat even if you do not really need to or you do not feel hungry. And this may really result in the problem of getting overweight. You need to ask yourself if you really need to eat so much when you are eating. Remember, you may eat when you feel bored or lonely. You have to avoid this. You should eat only if you feel hungry! Of course it may not do you any harm for you to drink some water even if you do not feel thirsty. However, it will not be the case if you try to drink coke! Some people may even try to eat some candy when they feel tired. Yet you should take a rest when you get tired. Eating is not the way to improve the condition.

Never starve yourself. Some people will think that it is good for them when they are on diet. However, the truth is that you body will start store more energy when you feel starved. As a result, it will only put your more weight if you starve yourself. Therefore you must eat three meals a day, plus snacks consisting of fruit and vegetables. This is the best way to lose weight.
