News flash! Weight loss ain't easy! To be more grammatically correct I guess I should say, weight loss isn't easy. No matter how you say it weight loss is a tough proposition. Unfortunately, no matter where you look it is nearly impossible to find any new and practical weight loss ideas to make the job of shedding a few extra pounds any easier. There are a few things you can do to lessen the chore.
If you only need to lose 5 or 10 pounds, count yourself lucky. You are not overweight. You are probably just vain and want to look better in that swim suit this summer. But, to those of us who need to lose 20, 30 or more pounds, our chores is going to be a bit tougher.
There are many fad diets on the market that promise to give us super duper weight and fat loss. Fad diets may work on a temporary basis. Only rarely will a fad diet produce permanent weight loss. Too many times a fad diet is boring and monotonous, suggesting we only one food for each meal. Remember the grapefruit diet? This type of diet is difficult to maintain and any weight lost will rapidly return once we go back to our regular dietary habits. You should also know that some fad diets can be extremely harmful to your body. The best advice is to avoid the fads. There are safer ways to lose weight.
One of the most practical weight loss ideas I've come across in years is to just eat less. I know this sounds too easy to work but, by reducing not only the amount of food we eat but, by changing the type of food, we will lose weight. Make sure the diet chosen contains lots of green leafy vegetables, fresh fruit and lean proteins such as fish and chicken. Metabolism rates can be sped up by eating four to six smaller meals a day, rather than three large ones.
Don't forget the exercise! I told you weight loss ain't easy! You will need some regular exercise if you are going to experience any permanent weight loss. It can be as simple as a brisk 30 to 45 minute walk each day or as extensive as a full gym workouts with weights and equipment. It just has to be regular.
Say it as you will, weight loss ain't easy, weight loss isn't easy or weight loss sucks! If you are overweight you will agree with that statement to the nth degree.
