10 Best Weight Loss Tips
1. Dietary Control and Exercise
It’s true what they say – all you need to do is watch what you eat, and
expend more energy than you consume. It’s really that simple.
2. Join an online support group
You have to know that others are out there for moral support – they
know things that you couldn’t possibly know, and they’ve probably been
“in your shoes” at some point in the past (or present). Share stories,
laughter, tears, successes, and failures – share them. There are thousands
of communities out there, so keep looking until you find the one that fits
3.Tell your family
If you’ve got a family at home, talk to them about it. Let them know
what you’re going to do, and that you want (and need) their support. If
you don’t let them know, you’re running the risk of them inadvertently
sabotaging your efforts. You want them to help you get to your goal(s).
You want them to share in your happiness when you’ve made it past a
4. Go public
I didn’t want to admit that I had screwed up, but admitting the problem
in public was the first step on the path to eventual success. I was now
accountable for my actions, and all my friends knew what I was doing.
There was no turning back, otherwise I’d be risk damaging my integrity.
I didn’t want to disappoint the people who read me on a regular (or
semi-regular) basis. Plus, it’s an easy way to find out which of your
friends have gone through the process before – and glean tips from their
own experiences. Then, other friends might become inspired to do the
same thing you’re doing once they see that you’ve taken the first step.
5. Identify your exercise
No exercise was created equal. You might like running, so run. You
might like jogging, so jog. You might like stationary bikes, so bike
stationarily. Find the one that works best for you – that isn’t too much of
a chore for you to do regularly throughout the week. Don’t pick a
routine that you don’t like – or you won’t want to do it, and you
certainly won’t stick with it for long.
6. Zone out
There’s a reason why people exercise to their favorite music – listening
to external stimulus takes your mind off of the physical activity. That’s
the secret to making “exercise time” fly. If you’re concentrating on what
your body is doing, the session is going to drag on for what will seem
like days. Buy a portable music player, or situate yourself in front of a
7. Set realistic goals
You can lose 50 pounds in a week if you work out 12 hours a day and
eat nothing but celery – but not if you’re human. Slow and steady wins
the race. Don’t bite off more than you can chew – literally. Make small
goals on your way to the bigger goal(s).
8. Don’t compare yourself to others
Everybody is different. It stands to reason that everybody will lose
weight differently. Even if you do the exact same things that I do, you
won’t lose weight at the same rate. The key is in finding your triggers.
Keep your goal in sight, and do whatever you have to do to meet that
goal. When you start looking at someone else’s habits, you’re only going
to become discouraged and quit without even realizing that it’s
physically impossible to be anybody but yourself.
9.Women aren’t men
It’s been proven that men can lose weight more rapidly than women can,
which is likely due to our physiological makeup (women are supposed to
have more fat than men, because they’re the birthing gender). This isn’t
a sexist statement to make – it’s pretty much the truth. As such, females
should expect to set separate goals than males – especially if you’re
working on losing weight together, side by side.
10.Vitamins are good for you
If you’re going to take any pills, let them be natural supplements (like
Essential Fatty Acids or multivitamins). Be careful about overdoing it,
though – especially with herbal remedies. Too much of anything is a bad
thing. You can consult a nutritionist, but always buy on your own – and
keep these supplements to a minimum. Remember, too, that specific
vitamins are no good without specific minerals.
