Secret Tips for Healthy Weight Loss

Jul 10, 2008
Everyone describes losing weight as this horribly difficult and stressful ordeal. Actually, it's not as hard as it sounds. If you make the right health choices and believe that you can achieve successful healthy weight loss, then weight loss will come naturally because your body is meant to be healthy and because you have a newfound belief in your own abilities.

The goal of a weight loss program is not to limit what you can eat but instead to teach you what foods are the best to eat and which are less than healthy. There are lots of programs that do this but you should make sure that the one you ultimately choose is focused on a balanced diet. (A balanced diet does not include unhealthy items such as junk food or fast food. Sorry to those who are avid fans.) A balanced diet should be based in fresh foods - vegetables, fruits and high-quality meats.

If the weight loss program that you're considering is a particularly "low-" anything diet, you might want to reconsider. Sure, "low-" whatever diets are great for a short period of time but those are called crash diets; those will not give you long-term results that last. Some food groups that these weight loss programs advise you to go "low" on are worth limiting in your diet but not to the degree that they say. Your body is based on balance so make sure to include all food groups in your nutritional regimen.

The other flip of the coin is that some weight loss programs tell you to try the oddest, most difficult to find foods. Usually those are also the most expensive! How long, really, can you be expected to maintain that diet? Not long, to be sure. When ingredients for your weight loss meals start to get expensive, you will lose interest and unfortunately, there goes that weight loss program. Instead, a worthy weight loss program will focus on common fresh foods or at least will give you alternate possibilities for those rare foods.

As for those fattening junk foods and fast food items, the best situation for those is to eliminate them entirely from your diet. Now, for those who are "addicted" to those foods, that may be difficult. Then, to start off your new weight loss program, you should start to eat less and less of these foods. Smaller portions until you don't feel the urge anymore. It's easy to see that "cold turkey" isn't for everyone. But make sure that eventually you eliminate those unhealthy foods from your weight loss regimen.

Speaking of smaller portions, this would be a good way to go with all your meals. By eating smaller portions more often (anywhere from 4-6 times a day instead of 3 large meals a day), you will almost "train" your body to increase the effectiveness of your metabolism. This will absolutely help you lose weight even better if you add in exercise too. Also, by eating these smaller portions more often, you are keeping yourself more satisfied, which will also stop you from binging because you're starved and craving those unhealthy foods.

There you have it; by first believing in yourself and then making smart choices about your health and foods, weight loss will absolutely come more easily to you. These smart choices are easy to adjust to when you realize the numerous benefits that come with them. So make sure to choose wisely in your weight loss program and you will soon see a healthier, slimmer you!
