Losing weight is not as hard as it looks. We all know the rules to shed a few pounds away. By eating a balanced diet, do regular exercise for 30 minutes 3 times a week, and drink lots of water. Even without extreme exercising we can say goodbye to the fat by eliminating some carbs or controlling our food choices. I got a friend who eliminates all carbohydrate food from his diet for a year. He lost half of his original size! The result is quite fast however, he gained back his fat when he stop all his diet schedule. The problem of just dieting is that you will tend to gain more weight when you stop all your diet or when you start taking saying you can’t help yourself. It is a conventional ‘on’ and ‘off’ method. It needs DETERMINATION to maintain your diet schedule.
So, how can we actually lose some pounds? The answer is again simple. CHANGE your lifestyle and be DETERMINE!. Start with a eating regular healthy breakfast meal every morning. It is not just rhetoric when people said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It actually helps to increase your metabolism rate. Then do more activity in your life. Activity actually increases your metabolism for hours even if you stop exercising. Increase metabolism means more food will be process faster and lesser fat will be stored. If you can’t do any exercises because your ‘do not have the time’ to spare, try to increase your activity that you do regularly. For example, climb the stairs to your office or walk you way to your apartment or grocery shopping mall.
Another way of changing your lifestyle is by changing your eating habit. Like for example, try to eat before 7.30 at night, replacing carbs with fiber, eating slowly or avoiding soft-drinks are simple ways you can start with.
Try to remember that losing weight quickly is nothing to celebrate. It is important to realize that the more quickly weight is lost, the more likely the loss is coming from water and muscle, not fat. Since muscle tissue is critical in keeping our metabolism elevated, losing it actually leads to a decrease in the amount of calories we can each day without gaining weight.
