To combat the large increase in obesity that is ongoing at present we find all sorts of companies selling “quick fix” pills, powders, and lotions. However these often do nothing to actually help people take the fat off and keep it off.
Of course the same could be said of the diet industry as well. There are so many different diets going around now you could pick one a month and in a years time still have a long list to choose from.
What is truly needed are some sensible proven weight loss tips that people can implement no matter what their present physical condition is. so here are some simple common sense tips:
- #1 Drink more water. All too often people are borderline dehydrated and so their bodies are working on the water starvation reflex and not flushing the toxins and junk out.
- #2 Eat more often. I bet you thought I was going to say eat less. Well while it is true that to lose weight you need to eat less calories than you expend… you need to eat more often to get the metabolic furnace stoked up and burning right. Get it out of starvation mode. So start the day off with breakfast. Even an instant breakfast drink and a piece of fruit as we head out the door in the morning.
- #3 Move more. Depending on your physical condition you need to be moving more. Use the stairs rather than the elevator, park further away from the office or the shops, go for a walk around the block, go dancing, play with your kids more. Make it fun. Running is not the only way to burn more calories.
- #4 Finally, determine “Why”. Decide why you want to discard fat. Make your reason big enough to motivate you through the slumps that invariably happen.
Whatever your motivation for losing weight it doesn’t need to be hard work but just simple common sense changes can be effective
