Finally, the secret and weight-loss hack have been found! Amazingly, it’s been right under our nose the whole time. How many programs and books have been out there over the years, that have told us that their program is the answer to all your dreams? Have you tried the fad diets? Remember the Protein Diets, Atkins Diet, Grapefruit Diet and on and on?
Forget them all, you don’t need them. The secret to losing your weight is really just the concept of just controlling what you eat and getting some exercise. I repeat, control what you eat and exercise! Stop eating junk food, eat smaller portions at mealtime and eat only till your hunger is gone, don’t keep eating because a lot of food is on your plate, you don’t have to finish it all. Just put less food on your plate and do not go for seconds. Eat more fruit and vegetables during meals and as snacks. Spread your meals out to about 2 and a half to 3 hours apart, and eat your last snack or meal a couple of hours before you sleep. Drinks lots of water.
Now, you also need to exercise to lose weight and burn off some calories. The key is to burn more calories than the calories that you take in from food. If you are not used to exercising, you do need to start out slowly. And you should probably see your doctor first to make sure of your health. You want to think long term when you start your program, not just lose weight real quick!
You can start off by walking or riding a bike. As you get stronger, go for a longer distance or move at a faster speed to increase your heart rate. Here is where you can do a little research to find different exercises you can use. Working out with weights or using just your body weight will help you build your muscles. Muscle burns more energy than fat. If you want to lose more weight, exercise more and eat a little less. But, remember this is not starvation, eating too little is not a good thing to do. You can eat a lot of food if you just choose the right stuff to eat, and do not overeat. Remember, that means no junk food, no useless calories. Remember, there are no shortcuts there is no weight loss hack.
When you start exercising, you may have to force yourself to get out and get started each day, it may not be fun for you. You may find someone you can exercise with, this helps. Keep at it, you will find something that you enjoy doing, and you will get to the point where you will feel guilty if you miss a day of exercising, like an addiction. If you need to buy some how-to books for nutrition and exercise, by all means, do it. But you can do this on your own, try it and don’t give up, keep at it.
