Five Healthy Weight Loss Tips

Jul 23, 2008
There are lots of different ways to lose weight, but not all of them are particularly healthy or successful in the long run. Many dieters, instead of following some healthy weight loss tips, are always following the latest diet fad or seeking a quick diet pill. But often the weight lost while following a fad diet doesn't stay gone very long at all. This just sets you up for a lifetime of yo-yo dieting.

If you can do it, it will really help your weight loss success if you can avoid the yo-yo dieting trend. The weight gain after ending your diet doesn't have to be inevitable! The secret is to follow healthy weight loss tips that will help you both reduce your weight and learn new eating habits that will stay with you for life.

If you follow these healthy weight loss tips, you'll definitely start to get rid of that excess fat and you'll be able to keep it off too:

1. Make sure to drink eight glasses of water at a minimum each day. Water is the universal solvent and is needed by the body to flush out all the unnecessary and harmful toxins. It would be advisable if you would immediately drink a glass of water after you wake up. In weight loss, water is crucial to your success. Drink lots of water before every meal so you will feel full and not tend to indulge too much in overly large meals. Diet experts also assert that drinking another glass of water during every meal will also help you control your appetite.

2. Don't let sodas and soft drinks became part of your meals. As much as possible, scrap those sweetened drinks when sitting down to dinner. The sugar content of such drinks accumulate in the body and get stored as fats that bloat the tummy and other body parts.

3. In your meals, include fruits that have 90% to 95% water content, such as tomatoes and watermelons. Even if you feast on these fruits, you surely would not gain weight because they are made of water, which you would eventually release in just a few hours.

4. Do not substitute fruit juices for actual fruits. Processed fruit juices contain preservatives and artificial colors and flavorings that are bad for the body and often contribute to weight gain. And natural fruit juices are still loaded with the sugar (fructose) from the fruits and nearly devoid of the fiber content that makes them so healthy and filling.

5. Eat more foods that have lots of fiber. As you all know, the human body requires high amounts of fiber for tissue building and better waste excretion. Fruits and vegetables are the usual and most generous sources of fiber. Such foods not only do not lead to excessive weight gain, but they will also help you reach your healthy weight loss goals because they are easily digested and consist of high-value nutrients and vitamins rather than empty calories.

Once you start putting some of these healthy weight loss tips into practice, you will be onto an excellent start to losing your excess weight.
