How to Discover the Secret to Fat Loss and Lose The Extra Weight

Sep 9, 2008
It's so repetitive that it becomes annoying when people say "I just can't lose weight" or "I need to just realize that losing weight is not in my future" or "Well, I'm fat, my family's fat, so that must be what I'm meant to be, fat."

People who think this way are usually those who jump from one fad diet to another. The reason they are saying these things is because fad diets do NOT produce results at all. There is really no point in following fad diets unless you want to stay fat.

To truly lose weight, it all begins with you. No matter which diet you try, without this, it would be extremely difficult for you to succeed. Now, understand what I'm saying here, this is a very important step but it is not the one-step cure-all because there is no such thing as a magic pill or anything like that. What you must do when trying to lose weight is first to believe that it is possible for you and that it will indeed happen. You have to believe that you are capable of this and that you can and will succeed at losing weight and keeping it off.

The more you believe in yourself, the stronger your drive will become to lose weight. Stay focused on that goal and keep nay-sayers away, even if it's family or friends. Particularly, you should ignore the media and its message of super-thin. Keep your own personal weight loss goal in mind, whatever final weight that is or number of pounds lost. Ignore outside influences, especially negative ones and just believe in yourself.

So now that we've got the first step done, here are the rest of the important steps to losing weight.

Make a decision to be serious about making changes to your lifestyle. It may be difficult at first but if you're serious and you believe in yourself, then just trust that you can do it. Changing your lifestyle towards a more healthy and active direction is going to greatly improve your weight problem, of course, but also your overall well-being, especially emotional and mental health. So just make sure you're choosing healthy over convenient, fast and fad, as in fad diet.

Part of this healthy lifestyle change includes doing your research about the best weight loss program for you. Avoid fad diets because they work for no one and almost always make you gain weight instead. So don't opt for the easy way out. Do your research and pick whichever program seems to fit best for you but make sure that the program takes your body as a whole into consideration when it suggests foods or exercises to do, both of which are very important and should be included in any weight loss program that's worth its while. If you keep that principle in mind, nutrition and physical fitness, you're already off to a good start with this weight loss plan!

So for good nutrition, you will want your weight loss program to help you focus and easily pinpoint what fresh, whole foods actually are. In my opinion, a good way to figure this out: produce in your grocery store is good, but processed foods are not. So avoid those. Your weight loss program should also help you fast occasionally, emphasis on occasionally.

Also, the program should not make you avoid any particular fresh food because your body does need all of the different types. So be wary of any program that tells you to avoid all together certain vegetables or tells you to eat whatever you want or to fast for more than 2 days at a time.

As far as physical fitness goes, there are very many different methods in this field. The best advice for me to give is that you should first consult your physician to make sure you have his/her approval first. Then you should consult a personal trainer; most gyms give you a free session to see if you like their trainers. Use that!

And ask that trainer plenty of questions, especially geared towards your specific weight loss goals, like if you want to lose weight for a specific event or if you want to lose weight in certain spots). They may tell you to do only cardio, strength training or aerobics or they may tell you to do a combination of all of them, which is probably the best method. Either way, use that resource and if you like him/her, stick with that trainer! They are a great resource even after the 1st free session.

It seems simple because it is. Those are the two (only two) biggest and most important keys to success in weight loss. Without these two, you will be lost. So make sure you believe in yourself first and then change your lifestyle to focus on healthy and physically fit. Here's to your weight loss success!
