Help For Losing Weight And Eating Healthy

Feb 5, 2008
New diets and miracle weight loss solutions are always being advertised. These normally cost people a ton of money and lost weight is normally quickly regained. People tend to focus more on the quick weight loss formulae that often harm the body and make it harder to keep off lost pounds.

Losing weight does not have to invade your entire life. A gradual lifestyle adaptation normally helped with more natural weight loss remedies has proven to be the most effective weight loss technique. Furthermore, it keeps the lost pounds at bay. A natural law of the universe is the resistance to change, therefore, make changes to your lifestyle one step at a time. Let a good change become a good habit before you proceed with the next step, very soon you will see just how much this pays off. Here are some tips to help you lose weight and keep healthy:

Drink 8 glasses of water a day

This ensures that you are hydrated and are receiving enough fluids. It also curbs the appetite.

Cut down on sugar

We often consume more sugar than we need to. If you are going to use a sugar alternative, ensure that it is aspartame free.

Watch what you cook

Look for lower fat food products. Remember the basic food groups and try to balance your meals. Your body still needs a bit of everything to be healthy.

Method of cooking

Rather bake and steam than roast or fry. Flavouring with lemon juice, garlic, ginger, herbs and oriental spices is fine. Do not overdo the salt and definitely no MSG.

When do you eat your main meal?

Midday is ideal. Try to avoid food for at least 4 hours before bedtime, otherwise you will have no opportunity to burn off those calories.

Eating plan

Plan healthy meals in advance. You will then be more likely to avoid the spur of the moment fast food temptation.

Keep a record of your meals

This helps you identify where things go wrong.

Don't give in!

If you are tempted to deviate from your eating plan, do something. Do anything, as long as it takes you away from the tempting food that is calling for you.

What if you do give in?

You are only human. Don't give up. Get back on your feet, get motivated and start again.

Don't be obsessive

Avoid food weighing and calorie counting, this only tends to stress people and you do not need stress.

Identify healthy snacks

These must be foods that you can eat as much as you like. Apple, raw carrot, mushroom and cucumber are good examples.

Become active

Find a physical activity that you enjoy. It does not help doing something if it is a chore for you. Even slow, less strenuous activities help increase your metabolism.

Rather concentrate on living and eating healthy than on losing weight. Doing more healthy things than unhealthy things will result in you losing weight anyway. The idea is that you become slimmer but also more energetic and healthy. If you are going to use something to assist you in losing weight, look towards the more natural solutions and avoid substances that can harm your body. On the whole, life is to be enjoyed, the longer you live the longer you can enjoy it.
