Tips on Losing Weight
When it comes to weight loss a whole bible could be written with just tips. For sake of time and your sanity I am going to provide some simple and easy ones you can incorporate into your lifestyle.
Weight loss starts in the kitchen. Start drinking water, and I mean lots of it. The benefits of water for your health are endless, but drinking a lot of water will also keep you more full and away from the cupboard. Also, ditch the soda. We all know it’s bad for you, even the diet. The easiest way to go cold turkey and eliminate all the junk food from your house is just to stop buying it. If it’s not there you can’t eat it!
When attempting to buy healthy foods stay away from all the diet and low calorie low fat garbage. These boxed processed foods are filled with chemicals and artificial sweeteners that are just as detrimental to your health as actual junk food. Buy whole and natural foods that humans have eaten for thousands of years. I am talking about vegetables, fruits, meats, fish, and nuts. Like the original iron man Jack Lalanne once said, “If man made it, don’t eat it”. Now this is not always true, but it is a very good way to start living a healthier lifestyle.
As I said weight loss starts in the kitchen, but yes, it only starts. Weight loss requires a caloric deficit, which is when you are burning more calories than you are consuming. This means you need to exercise. Weather you are a man or women you have to be lifting weights and performing cardio, preferably short intense cardio. A combination of the two performed at least four times a week will kick your butt into weight loss mode.
Eating healthy and exercising are all you need to lose weight. If you are dedicated to your mission and take positive action the only result is success. It’s going to be very hard, but the end game is worth it. Weight loss does not happen over night, but in spurts of positive intervals.
