Why is it so difficult to lose weight
For most of the people who want to lose weight it is hard to get started and keep going. There are so many factors in our lives that play a role in losing weight. Food is delicious and exercise is hard . I am still struggling myself now and then but I know how to stop falling back in old habits by staying focused on my goal.
There are a lot of weight loss programs out there and they all will have something that works but is it working for you. Weight loss is not a short term fix it will ask a lot of effort mentally and physically . You may end up in a up and down yo yo effect and at the end you will give up.
With out a plan for the future you will lose some weight but you will probably fall back in to your old lifestyle of eating habits. This will happen if you start a weight loss program that makes you lose weight quickly .
The best thing to do is to have a balanced diet that includes all the food groups that your body needs. You will only succeed if you can keep that weight off for good.
You have to understand that diets in combination with excessive exercise and detoxing do not work on the long term. They will only work for so long depending on your motivation level which is different for all of us.
Losing weight is not a quick fix although the weight loss industry tells you so. Losing weight is all about your dedication to stick to a long term plan and support from people around you. Friends and family can be a great support in helping you to reach your goal.
It is better to lose weight slowly like 0.5 to 1 kilo a week. you will not even feel hungry or that you miss out in foods that you love. It is all a matter of eating a little less and more healthy products.
This is a far more effective way of losing your weight then the fast weight loss plans.
Let your family know that you are on a diet and ask them to help to motivate you in doing so.
They will understand and start helping you to eat less and more healthy. You can also talk to your doctor and ask him to come up with a diet plan.
You are the only one that can make it to work
It is you that has to have the mindset and the will to make it work. You will have to slowly get rid of all the processed foods like white bread, pasta, milk, cheese, snacks, chips. You will have to switch to wholegrain varieties .
Now and then you will fall back but don`t feel guilty about it it is perfectly normal.
You have to adjust to a different way of eating then you where used to.
You can also start to do some light exercise like walking or some gym at home. You don`t have to do excessive workouts to lose that weight. It will be good for your fitness level if you can but don`t push yourself to hard. Keep a food diary this is proven to make you lose more weight.
You need support from the community
Without support or motivation it is very hard for most of us to lose weight. You need support through friends and family and other sources to help you and guide you in the right way. A lot of them have no weight issues and can help you leading the way if you let them in to your space.
We know that people will make fun out of your attempt to eat healthy and want to lose weight. A lot of people and cultures are focused on their food habits and you can`t blame them because that is the way they have being taught by their family.
They will come with all sorts of comments like , is that all you are going to eat or are you not having any dessert ? People can be nasty and sarcastic . Just remember it is about your health and wellbeing. That is why you need the support from professionals and family and friends.
If you feel that there is not enough support around you talk openly to your partner, friends and family about it. Tell them that it is you that want to lose weight and not them, they can still eat what they want to eat. For the ladies you can start using the lets get started pack
Exercise alone is not making you lose weight
Exercise is something that can be and for some people should be a part of your weight loss goal. It is proven that exercise can be or is a part of losing weight and it has a lot of health benefits for you. But it is not easy to lose weight from exercise alone.
The majority of people think that they can burn a lot of calories by doing exercise. It is in fact a lot less then you think. You can burn 450 calories in a hour long weight lifting workout. It is going to come back quickly after that if you do not change your diet and start eating how you used to do.
So only focusing on exercise is not going to help. You have to watch your food intake as well.
What you need is a diet that is rich in vitamins and fibers like fruit, vegetables, healthy fats, proteins and whole grains. This will help you to lose and sustain your weight loss. Go to my post about you are what you eat guidelines
Not enough sleep and to much stress
If you don`t sleep enough and have to much stress this will catches up with you during the day and you will go for unhealthy snacks to keep you going. You will come home and have no energy to do some walk or exercise.
If you are tired you will be moody and fall back in comfort food. So it is very important to get enough sleep at night, at least 7.5 hours of sleep for most people more is better.
Weight loss supplements
There are a lot of weight loss supplements on the market and they are probably not going to do the work for you alone. You also have to start using a protein shake in the morning to keep you full and get you through the day.
You can`t live on supplements alone. Some weight loss supplements have prove and evidence that they work. The best way is just to eat less calories and then you will burn fat.
Small Lifestyle Changes
If you want a healthy life you have to change how you live. This is not going to happen overnight of course. Some people eat late at night and when you do that your food is not going to be digested properly . It can raise your body temperature and insulin this will make it harder to burn fat when you sleep.
Stop snacking when you watch TV most of the time it is unhealthy snacks. It is ok to snack fruit or vegetables like celery tomato etc.
Try to have a healthy dessert that is not full of sugar or saturated fats. There are a lot of healthy recipes out there just google it.
