Tips for weight loss and good weight management.

It all happens so fast! One day you are a 50kg college student, the next you are an 80kg parent. Suddenly, you start wondering what happened. In a panic, many people come to me to find out the fastest way to lose weight without exercise. Well, my advice remains the same. There is no magical way to lose weight fast; no magical diets that work especially seeing that it has accumulated gradually. In this article, I give a few tips for weight loss and good weight management.

Tip 1: Healthy Eating

Many people will search everywhere for diets that work and there are quite a few especially on the internet. However, the focus should be on sustainability because after the diet, then there is the living. First and foremost, you need to know what nutrients the body needs for day to day living because without eating well you will get into myriads of problems. Then you determine the quantities based on your body weight and size. Let’s do a quick recap on the foods. Shall we?

v Carbohydrates – For energy

v Proteins – Body building

v Vitamins – Immune building

v Minerals - Optimal body functions

Healthy meals

Tip 2: Positive Thinking

It has been said time and time again that a person is the sum total of his or her thoughts. Most of the oversize and obese people I have met seem to have one thing in common: They hate themselves. Whether it is as a result of the shame of being obese or other conditions, self hate is a leading cause of most diseases. So you don’t like how you look? Why not redefine yourself?! Start loving yourself so much that you will do anything it takes to look better and ultimately feel better. Remember it may not be necessary to lose weight fast but to discover how to maintain a healthy weight. When you think positively you can garner the strength needed to keep on the healthy diet path.

Healthy eating


Exercise not only keeps our muscles in great shape, it also helps to burn up the calories. Even if you are not looking to lose weight, exercise is important. The current lifestyles do not encourage exercise because people either work too long or they drive all over. Simple exercises such as walking can greatly reduce the chances of obesity and other related problems. An adult should get at least 30 minutes of exercise everyday. Activities such as swimming, aerobics, yoga, zumba, cycling etc can be easily incorporated into the daily routines to help one to lose weight fast. Exercise should not be taken primarily to lose weight but rather to keep our joints and muscles in shape.

Meal Planning

It is not enough to know what you need to eat to lose weight fast. You will also have to develop a positive eating lifestyle with healthy diet plans. The reason why many diet plans do not work is because they focus on giving the fastest way to lose weight and forget about maintaining the new you. Remember starving oneself and denying oneself cravings often leads to unhealthy bingeing. So you need to write simple meal plans incorporating all the food categories in healthy portions. Experiment with new recipes and food stuffs to find out which one works well on your palette.


Supplementation is often necessary because too much food processing takes out many of the important nutrients. Due to the nature of life today, it is very hard to achieve a balanced diet through food alone. People rush through the day with hardly enough time for a glass of water through the day. It is then important to supplement since it helps us to close the gaps in our diet. There are certain supplements that can help us to lose weight by increasing the metabolism rate or reducing appetite. Garcinia is a potent herb that has been widely used in appetite management.


While losing weight is important, attaining great health is even better. Here are the tips to achieve both:-

  • Healthy eating
  • Meal Planning
  • Positive Thinking
  • Exercise
  • Supplementation
  • Appetite Control
