If you are overweight, like most people today, then you may be interested in a way to lose weight. Of course, many people who are technically overweight, according to medical guidelines, have no problem at all with their weight. This article is for those of us who’d like to lose a couple pounds or more.
The first step is to identify a specific goal. Many just think they want to lose weight, but unless you give yourself a target, it can be hard to achieve. Pick a specific target, and a specific date. Be careful to give yourself some time. Don’t try and lose ten pounds in a week. Try for ten pounds in two months.
Now that you’ve got your target in your sights, it’s time to start to slowly change your habits to get there. If you try and change too quickly, you’ll likely run out of steam and give up before even getting halfway there.
First, start to avoid bad carbohydrates like sugar or bread. These are quickly stored as fat if you eat too much. And many of these foods, although they taste delicious, go straight to your hips. Better carbohydrates would be brown rice, wheat or grain bread, and brown pasta.
Next you want to focus on good fats versus bad fats. Good fats are the unsaturated kind, found in olive oil, fish and nuts. Bad fats are the saturated kind, found in most fried foods. Avoid these like the plague.
And if you want to really turbocharge your plan, add in some exercises. Again, just like changing your eating habits, its better to go slowly. That way you can build up some powerful momentum. If you start too fast, you’ll likely burn out, or get discouraged and quit.
A combination of a healthy eating habits along with exercise can pack a powerful one two punch. And when you add these slowly into your routine, you will be amazed how quickly they became natural and normal for you, which of course will make it simple to lose that weight.
