There are products and solutions in the market that promised effective weight loss in a short period of time. There are too many information out there, a Google search would lead to thousands of pages of promises that usually don’t deliver. If you want to rapidly and effectively lose weight, follow these simple tips to get you started. Then, I will leave you a short homework to get yourself ready to effectively and rapidly lose weight.
1. The Decision to Lose Weight Starts from YOU.
Reading this article alone means you are driven by your will power to lose weight. Right now you might be feeling that you need to lose weight as soon as possible. An old friend’s compliment or an image that caught your eye from the latest issue of your favorite fashion magazine must have triggered your emotions. But you must bear in mind that feelings change. You might have felt the need to lose weight now but that might not be the case tomorrow. Make losing weight a plan rather than an ambition or a reaction to something you’ve seen or heard. Don’t just want, act on it and make it happen!
There’s a common misconception in the usage of the word Calorie. A Calorie isn’t really anything that’s found inside your body. It is a unit of measurement to determine the amount of energy. When there is excess energy, the body is forced to create cells out of that energy and that’s how fat cells kick in. You need to eat less calories than your body needs in order to lose weight.
3. Have a Good Diet
A good diet should consist of food from all food groups. Include fruits and vegetables in your meal, prefer lean meat and make sure that the food you eat should have fiber, vitamins and minerals. Prefer non-processed food and avoid consuming drinks that contain sugar and alcohol.
4. Avoid Rapid Weight Loss Diet Programs
These programs will give you a guarantee that you’ll be able to rapidly lose weight in a short period of time. Unfortunately, most of these programs don’t deliver. Aside from being too good to be true, they require you to follow ways and methods that are too hard to follow. This can be a health threat since your body will be “forced” to adapt to ways that are beyond its normal condition.
Exercise might seem like a hard task for most of us who want to lose weight. The thought of exercising seem to be associated with climbing on a steep and rocky mountain. You might be having excuses like lack of time or other priorities to consider. The truth is, you don’t have to spend lots of time and money for a gym membership. To exercise doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to sweat a lot in order to lose weight. You just have to reduce your time sitting or sleeping. Do something that is both productive and healthy. If your office is in walking distance then walk. Walk with your dog around the neighborhood on Sundays. Think of these activities as a form of exercise instead of tasks.
Always bear in mind that losing weight is not a dream that has to be reached but rather a plan that needs action. Pick role models and know their secrets and set realistic goals. Don’t force your body to be as sexy as those Hollywood celebrities in a few weeks. That’s like doing suicide! Your body needs to go through a natural process in order to either lose or gain weight. Be positive about it.
