Losing weight has gotten a bad reputation. People avoid it, dread having to do it, try it and give up, and generally approach it with the idea in mind of how hard it is! But it can be much easier than that.
The trick is to approach it gradually. Don’t try to make huge changes all at once.
Make one small change at a time and give yourself some time maybe a week or more to get used to it. Then add on another small change.
If you keep it up, which is not very hard to do, after only a few weeks you will start to notice changes in your energy, your strength, and how your clothes fit.
What kinds of things can you change? Well, we can start by remembering that weight loss or weight gain come from the foods you put into your body and the exercise you do with it. That gives us a lot of possibilities. One week you can add a short walk after dinner or lunch.
Another week you can start cutting down your portion sizes by 20% to 30%. If you’re in a restaurant, you can stop after a healthy portion, and even avoid wasting it by taking the rest home.
Other changes you can make might be changing one of your daily snacks from chips to tasty fruit, or substituting baked foods instead of fried ones.
By taking it step by step, you never feel pushed too fast, which prevents you from resisting or feeling out of sorts. So you lose without really noticing it. Here are some general areas to give you ideas for other small changes you can make:
6 Great Ideas To Speed Weight Loss Easily
1. Controlling calories vegetables have a lot less than carbs or fatty foods. And spices and baking can go a long way toward giving you a substitute for that yummy fried, salty, fatty taste. In fact, after you get used to healthier food, you will probably find your old favorites to be much too heavy, over-salted, and oily. Plus you can still eat protein of any kind, since that helps you burn calories faster.
2. Limiting your portion sizes we are taught to clean our plate. But if you are facing a mountain of foods in front of you, the better part of valor is not to go on the attack!
3. Replacing a few large meals with many small ones much better for your blood sugar levels and more.
4. Choosing fresh foods instead of processed ones processed foods virtually always have way too much salt, sugar (or sugar-containing ingredients), and fats. Food products like that are cheaper to produce and don’t spoil as fast. But what’s good for food processing or shelf life is often bad for your body. Fresh and whole is better for you.
5. Exercise helps you stay healthy, more youthful, and burns calories too. This doesn’t mean endless pounding workouts, just more than today. Try walking around the neighborhood and then longer and at a faster pace as time goes on.
6. Small easy steps make it much easier on you than huge changes. They give you a chance to make yourself at home with your new eating and exercise habits, and to adjust them to fit you the way you like.
Taking it slow and easy also protects you against the risks of rapid weight loss, like a sudden release of toxins from your fat cells into your bloodstream, or having to buy a whole new wardrobe all at once.
Why do it the hard way when you can do it the easy way? Enjoy the healthy changes coming to you everyday instead of dreading that next workout, if you are dreading it then you are working out too hard for the long term.
Now you know the secret to making weight loss easy. You probably don’t need a complicated system or expensive foods or equipment. It’s so much easier than that! Once you’ve experienced it for yourself, you may end up wondering why you ever thought it was so hard.
