Simple Weight Loss Is Always The Best Weight Loss

In this article I explain that losing weight does not and should not be a chore. You can enjoy eating and still lose weigh and become a much healthier person.

You often hear people complaining about having to diet all the time. I do anyway. Yes, it is hard not being able to eat everything in site. Having to pass up a second or third piece of candy or fudge or cake because you know it will go strait to a certain part of your body and hang out there for the rest of your life.

The good news is that if you have the right mindset and know how nutrition works, than you can have that second or third piece. I know that sounds crazy, but it is true. I have eaten cake and ice cream and still lost weight. I do it all the time. I might have lost more weight, more quickly if I did pass up the cake and ice cream, but why? I want to keep losing weight and still be happy to accept an invitation to a birthday party.

If you make your weight loss plan hard and painful, you will soon be off of it and more than likely gain more weight than you lost before you started that diet. There have been studies that show this. So the best thing to do is make your diet as simple and easy as you can.

You are probably still wondering how I can eat cake and ice cream and still lose weight. The reason is simple, I don't do it everyday. I only weigh myself once a week. I look at the big picture and not each meal. When I do treat myself, the next meal I am right back to eating the way I should eat. I might exceed my calorie intake by 500 that one day, but the other six I am below my calorie intake daily requirements. It is fairly simple actually.

Once you learn the foods that are packed with calories and fats that you eat, just find something else to substitute that you enjoy eating just as much. It is not that hard now days. There are plenty of choices at the market, you just have to find them. Once I rid my kitchen of the entire collection of high calorie, fatty foods I had, and learned how to eat small meals throughout the day to keep from getting to hungry and binge eat, the pounds started falling off each week. It is amazing how good low calorie, healthy food is too. You have so many choices and you can do so much with it.

You also have to know how to keep your metabolism fueled up and running at high speed to burn those calories you consume. It is important to have your daily requirements of protein, carbohydrates, fats, and vitamins. If you deprive your body of one of those, then your metabolism will slow and not burn the calories off. You need all of your food groups each day, and need to start your day by taking a good multi vitamin, or a pack of vitamins like I do. You also have to eat when you are hungry. You need to snack if you get hungry between meals and eat meals a little early if you get hungry then. Hunger tells you that your metabolism fuel is low.

Then if you throw in a little exercise your off to the races. Exercise is hard for a lot of people, but once you find something you like, and the key thing is to start off slowly and work your way up after a while, you will find you will have so much more energy throughout the day. Every movement you make burns calories. Twiddling your thumbs burns calories. You have to do a lot of twiddling though to make a difference, but just keep on the move all day and you will be burning calories. Strength training is also good. The muscles you are building will help burn away the calories also.

The right mindset. I mentioned that earlier. That plays a big part in losing weight and being healthy. I have a little voice in my head that always asks me a question every time I see food that is not good for me and I want to reach for it. It says, Mike, do you want to be thin and healthy, or do you want to enjoy that for one minute? Enjoy the food for one minute, or be thin and healthy for the rest of your life. One minutes pleasure, or thin and healthy for the rest of my life. It is an easy decision. I love that I have lost 56 pounds since the beginning of the year. I love losing weight and how much better I feel. That is how you need to think. You need to make a choice between thin and healthy or a minute of eating something that will take that away. Of course once you know how to moderate your eating, you can have a few minutes of pleasure and know you will be able to still lose weight by the weeks end.

I have just touched the surface on how easy a good weight loss plan is. There is a lot more to it than I can explain in a short article. You need to do a little research yourself on what your daily calorie intake should be, and then learn how to shop for the right foods you like. You will also have to learn that slow and easy is the only way to lose weight, the same way you put it on, and you will be able to lose it for the rest of your life. You will need to analyze your eating habits and find out which foods that you eat now are causing you not to lose weight. What habits you have now that you will need to break. The first 2 or 3 weeks once you decide to get serious are the hardest. Then it starts to become routine. It takes 21 days of doing something everyday for it to become a habit. That is not long. You can make eating healthy and losing weight a habit real fast.
