We can’t be expected to know everything in life, and losing weight is no different . Do not be afraid to look for the right advice and make an informed decision. It is worth your while doing a bit of homework so as to make it pay dividends later.
- Visit a doctor or dietician
One of the best things you can do at the start of your weight loss routine is to go see a doctor to advise you.A visit to a dietician or doctor is something well worth considering. They will help to advise you on the ideal maximum weight you should aim to lose per week. Advice on Losing weight as quickly as possible can also be found from government websites. You do not necessarily have to spend loads of money on weight loss books – there is plenty of stuff out there on the internet to use.
- Avoid scam products on the internet
Of course there are also some things on the internet that you want to avoid There are many products out there in the market place at the moment that claim to provide a magic bullet for weight loss. It is important to remember that there is no safe form of weight loss that comes quickly. Even surgery in the form of liposuction or stomach clipping carries with it substantial risks. Weight loss is a goal that needs to be achieved through a process of sustained achievement. Of course that is not to say that you can’t start achieving right away. One of the things you can do to lose weight starting with your portion sizes.
- Cut your portion size
Have you noticed anything different about the food we eat these days? Over the last few decades, the size of portions served in restaurants and in supermarket packages has increased. A study by the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) found that burgers, for example, have doubled in size since 1980. Not surprisingly, research shows that when we’re given a larger portion, we tend to eat more.
- Watch what you eat
Coping with larger portion sizes is a matter of simply stopping when you feel full. It takes up to 20 minutes for your body to let you know that you’ve eaten enough, so eat slowly and you’ll have a better chance of avoiding that over-stuffed feeling. And remember, when you cook fresh, healthy meals at home, instead of eating out or buying supermarket ready meals, you can save money and control your portion sizes.
- Be careful about what you buy
Be clever about what you purchase as well. Buy only enough fresh fruit and vegetables for the next couple of days, so they won’t end up going off in the bottom of your fridge. Remember when it comes to fruit and veg, dried, frozen and canned (in juice, not syrup) are just as good as fresh. There really are no excuses about cost when it comes to healthy eating. Search the internet for calorie reduced recipes that are very healthy but that don’t compromise on taste. That way you will ensure that healthy eating is enjoyable as much as it is good for you.
- Create your own weight loss routine
It is not just your food that you should be finding enjoyable. You lifestyle can be as rich and as varied as your diet. For many, a weight loss routine becomes boring and uninspiring due to that one word- ‘routine’. Whereas some people enjoy having every small detail mapped out for them - and there is nothing wrong with that by the way- others prefer having a bit more spontaneity. Neither one of these attiudes is superior to the other. What is important is how they are applied in real terms.
If you are likely to suffer from boredom or apathy from a programmed routine then by all means mix it up a bit. For instance, you might fancy cycling one week and then rock climbing the next. The ways to burn calories and shed pounds are almost endless. So remember – be an individual. Do not be afraid to express yourself as it is through expressing ourselves that we attain happiness.
- Be active
In addition to improving your cardiovascular fitness levels and reducing your body fat through aerobic exercise, hill walking offers many additional benefits which, to many, far outweigh those which you can achieve simply by pounding away on the treadmill at your local gym. Firstly, unlike the gym, if you live close to hilly areas, it’s free, plus the fact that you’re surrounded by nature can often be more motivating than being stuck inside the confines of a gym. It’s also a great stress reliever.
