Tips to win the weight loss game
Losing weight can be discouraging
How do I start?
You know the drill. You stepped on the scale this morning and was shocked at how many pounds had slipped on. You didn't realize how many tacos you had been purchasing at Taco Bell, or how many Hershey Bars you had snacked on on the way home. That can't be right, not now right here at the holidays?
The scale has to be broken, right? The only answer is to get a huge bowl of ice cream and start thinking about dieting tomorrow.
Nope. The only thing to do is grap a bottle of water and think about that diet, now.
As they say in football, the best defense is a good offense. So lets get on the offensive.
There are many diet, just choosing a diet is confusing. But the reality is, diets do not work. The only thing that works long term is a lifestyle change. That takes a little extra effort.
Just dieting doesn't work
There aren't any miracles in weight loss
We all want miracles. We want to get on a diet, or take a magic pill and have the weight fall off with little or no effort on our part.. It doesn't work that way, no matter what you do you have to burn those excess calories and the only way to do that is good old fashioned excerise.
Walking is one of the most popular and healthfull way. Start slowly walking maybe a mile a day and slowly increase the distance every day.
Use weights, start with 5 pounds and build up. Also, walking doesn't mean strolling work up to a good steady clip and keep the pace. Eventually you may feel like running as time goes on.
Walking can be boring, invest in a MP3 player, or if there is something you have always wanted to memorize this is a good time to practice it. I memorized Bible verses as I walked.
Make sure you do Warm ups, and and cool downs to keep your muscles flexible.
To make it all the more interesting train for a local walk or run. I started walking to train for the Breast Cancer Walk,. after I met my goal it was easy to train for other walks in the neighborhood. Almost every city has a walkathon or marathon of some type especially the ten k. Check your local paper.
Drinking water to help cleanse your system aids in weight loss
Back in the Days When I was dieting, every time I would discuss diets and weight loss with anyone, the one tip that they would always mention was to be sure and drink plenty of water. This most probably was the best suggestion that anyone offered, and it still holds true today. The fact that doctors and nutrition experts still maintain that water is so valuable to the human body and to those who are attempting to drop those unwanted pounds, is a testimony to the necessity of drinking plenty of water daily.
Water’s importance to our bodies has always been taught to us in all the science and biology classes that we took in school, so it is an old concept continually being brought up today as well. It worked then, and it is still working today, and it always will.
Having learned about the importance of water, have you considered that fact when you began a diet? Water is needed to insure that every system in the human body functions at its maximum ability. If you do not drink enough water, your system will perform below capacity. You are constantly losing water from your body, and it needs to be replaced.
If you do not drink enough water, you will become dehydrated. Not drinking enough water and becoming dehydrated will affect the rate of metabolism. When the metabolism drops, fewer calories will be burned and the rate of weight loss will decrease or stop until the metabolism is once again working efficiently.
If you have been lax in drinking a lot of water, be good to yourself and start drinking more. I guarantee that you will see a difference.
