How To Choose the Best Weight Loss Program for Your Body Type

May 2, 2008
Maybe you've asked yourself this question. Why are there so many weight loss programs on the market? Isn't loosing weight just a question of exercising more or eating less? Unfortunately there's more to it than that and making the right choice of weight loss program gives you the best chance to succeed and see benefits from the program.

Starting a weight loss program should really be more about Matching than Choosing. Matching the parameters of each program to the kind of person it's aimed at, not just selecting a program because it looks good or has a flashy sales page or website.

All weight loss programs have one thing in common. They all make a big play of the amount of weight you can lose. From experience though, no attempt is made to match any particular program to any particular body type or profile.

The reason weight loss programs don't do this matching is really quite simple. The publishers or owners of these programs obviously want to have the biggest number of customers, so if they were to say things like -only suitable to xxx types- they would probably be limiting their exposure.

The weight loss market is extremely competitive and as with any competitive market, publishers need to position their product to the widest possible user base. A weight loss product which is very effective for one particular type of person might be less effective for a different type, making the right choice of program vitally important.

How do you choose the right weight loss program though ? It's not just a case of trying something and if it doesn't work trying something else. One of the most common reasons people give up on trying to lose weight is frustration. Frustration when they don't see the results they expected or were promised by the program. Imagine the frustration levels if you had to switch to a new program every week because you didn't make the right choice of program ?

Starting a weight loss program means making a commitment. A commitment to stick to the program, to reduce or eliminate certain foods, to make life style changes necessary for the weight loss to happen. Making a commitment to a program which isn't right for you is far more difficult to achieve.

Making the right decision about a weight loss program shouldn't involve a huge amount of research or rely on everybody being a weight loss expert. Making the right choice should be a simple procedure, without the need to make complicated decisions.

The main points you should consider for your decision are:

1. Your body type according to the Body Mass Index

2. Determining your weight loss expectation

3. Your weight loss time frame

Using these 3 simple steps gives you the best chance of choosing a weight loss program which will be right for you and will give you the best chance of success with the particular program.
