How to Lose Weight Easily and Practically - No Matter Where You Are!

Apr 11, 2008
One of the most difficult aspects of losing weight for many people is the trouble sticking with restrictive diets while traveling, during the holidays or attending a party. Most party, holiday and restaurant fare simply is not designed to accommodate the large majority of diets currently making the circuit. It is possible; however, to lose weight easily and practically regardless of wherever you happen to be. Read on for more great tips to lose weight practically.

1. First, recognize that the key to losing weight practically often does not involve any type of restrictive diet. The key is planning ahead and focusing on eating healthy. For example, one great way to make sure you do not blow your diet when dining out or attending a party is to simply prepare ahead of time. Have a small meal before you leave home. This ensures you won't overeat on foods you shouldn't have when out.

2. When you're traveling or dining out, look at ways you can cut back on portions. Order an item from the appetizer menu and a small side salad. This tip keeps portion sizes under control but ensures you aren't starving while everyone else is munching.

3. If you are attending a party where there might happen to be lovely little dishes of food scattered about, make sure you fill up on water. Sipping a glass of water every hour will ensure you have something in your hand and keep your stomach full so you aren't tempted to overdo it on snack and buffet items.

4. It's also a good idea to look at ways you can modify foods you order. Ask for your meat to be broiled or roasted instead of fried, for example. Request that the sauce and butter be left off. These are small, but effective ways, you can keep your diet under control regardless of wherever you might happen to be.

5. Replace high-fat and high-calories snacks and treats with fruits and vegetables. Many times we tend to reach for whatever happens to be convenient when we are in the mood for a snack. If you are traveling, this is often the first convenience store you run across. Before you leave for your trip, pack a baggie with some veggies and fruit and then reach for that when the mid-afternoon munchies strike.

Sticking with your weight loss resolutions doesn't have to be difficult; it simply requires a little planning and creativity.
