With the amount of weight loss pills and other alternatives emerging today, it’s no wonder that more and more people are abandoning the usual methods for those so called “instant weight loss methods”. The question is, do they really work? What in fact is the best way to lose weight?
Weigh loss pills are not really that good when it comes to losing weight; in fact they are only the facilitators of the process. In fact, you can do as well without these diet pills as long as you get yourself a good lose weight plan. Unlike the diet pills, the lose weight plan would require more than a few seconds of your time, so be prepared for a complete 180 degree turn of your life! However, this change will definitely improve your lifestyle, making it healthier plus giving you a better body.
Here is a sample of a lose weight plan you might want to adapt.
* You wake up early and do some exercise, just 20 minutes of your time will do.
* Whip up a healthy breakfast with a fresh fruit as your appetizer, whole wheat bread, yogurt or a warm soup, preferably something you’ve prepared last night to avoid the morning rush.
* Drink coffee but make sure to also get a glass of water.
* Make sure to use the stairs instead of the elevator.
* Limit your snack to a sandwich or a biscuit.
* Grab yourself a healthy lunch.
* Moderate snack.
* Light dinner and make sure not to eat anything after 8pm.
Now, it takes dedication and perseverance to follow a specific routine so don’t start thinking that it’s too easy. That’s why aside from getting yourself a weight loss plan, there are also various tips that could aid your transition from unhealthy to healthy living. Here are some simple weight loss tips that you can adapt.
Drink water prior to every meal. The fact is that not only does water make us feel fuller than we actually are but it helps flush out the toxins from out body. Limit your soft drink intake or even juices because water is the way to go.
Eat more often but lesser. What does this mean? What it boils down to is eating small portions of food but doing so 5 times a day. Frequent food intakes in small amounts will allow the body to keep on running on energy without the need to store any excess fat from bulky food servings.
Write it down. Make sure to keep a tangible copy of your daily plan. If you can touch it, the more enthusiastic will you be to finish it. You can also make it a challenge by turning it into a to-do-list so that you have no choice but to push yourself into completion.
Don’t give up. The biggest diet wrecker is when people slip up by eating a chocolate bar and then go downhill from there. So what if you ate a chocolate bar on Tuesday? This doesn’t mean that you should abandon your plan. You just have to start the next day as if it was the first day of your plan and proceed from there. If you do this often enough, you’ll soon notice that the gap between your “slip-ups” is getting farther and farther.
Keep in mind that the best way to lose weight is through the old fashioned way: eating less and exercising more. You don’t risk your health plus you get the results that you want.
