Weight Losing The Easy Way

Apr 16, 2008
Who says losing weight has to be tough? There is such a thing as weight losing the easy way.

Everyone goes on a diet once a while, but some diets take ages before you can finally see results. Some diets give instant results but the weight loss is only temporary.

So what exactly should you do to achieve healthy and long lasting weight loss? The answers are right smack in front of you. It's just that people tend to overlook them, as they are too busy looking for the fastest way to shed off those extra pounds of weight.

An ideal weight loss diet should be one that does not require you to completely eliminate certain types of foods. If you have yet to realize, most diets, especially fad diets, love to prevent the dieter from eating certain types of food, namely carbs. This is definitely wrong, as our body should not be restricted from any nutritional component. What we need is balance.

1. Crash diets are a "no-no"

No matter how tempted you are to give these crash diets a try, don't even bother. Not only are they truly unhealthy, but you will most certainly feel the negative side-effects instantly. If you choose to go on a crash diet, then you are probably looking forward to feeling much weaker, you will be tired, nauseated, and have that lovely generally "broken down" feeling all day long.

2. A healthy breakfast

One major key to healthy weight loss is to eat a healthy breakfast. As the matter of fact, if you are not used to having breakfast, then maybe it is time to pick up the habit if you really wish to lose weight. Many say that a healthy breakfast will help to jumpstart your metabolism. That may not be 100% true, but eating breakfast may help prevent you from feeling overly hungry and stop overeating later in the day.

3. Eating in moderation

It is pretty tough to gauge what a moderate portion is when it comes to food. How do you measure a "moderate" portion? When in doubt, you can use the size of your palm or your fist as a "rule of thumb" for the ideal portion you should be eating.

4. Time to huff and puff

An ideal weight loss program would suggest the dieter do some from of exercise. If you want to lose weight, it helps to move around a bit. However, this does not mean that you need to spend hours on the treadmill. Just do simple aerobic exercises, or even just walking 30 minutes 3 days a week, will usually do the trick. Doing your exercises daily will help to give your metabolism an extra boost as well as your general mood.

Weight losing is easy. You don't need to starve. You don't need to splurge on any costly diet pills. All you need to do is to watch what you eat, and sprinkle a little bit of workout now and then and you will achieve your desired weight in no time at all.
