Why use a plan to lose weight and gain health

In today’s fast paced world obesity is on the rise with increased consumption of fast food and processed food. Natural and home cooked foods are being eaten less and less. People often resort to quick miracle diets or juice cleanses to lose weight for a limited time. Lesser number of people are getting regular exercise. Most doctors do not recommend juice cleanses, which cut all solid food from the diet for a limited amount of time, or diet plans which advise cutting one complete food group from your diet. Losing or gaining weight too fast can have an adverse effect on your health.

There are certain accommodations people can make to maintain a healthy weight or lose weight. If you are planning a diet to lose a large amount of weight, you should consult either your doctor or a nutritionist before you start on your diet. There are some things that have to be kept in mind before starting on a diet plan.

Calorie counting: It is important to maintain the number of calories burned and calories consumed to effectively lose weight. Keep in mind that the more calories you burn and the less calories you consume, the more weight you will lose. That, however, does not mean that you should drastically reduce the amount you eat all at once. At the beginning the goal should be to burn 500 more calories than consumed to lose 1-2 pounds per week. This can be changed as the body becomes accustomed to the diet plan.

Exercise: Exercise is always important in any diet plan. If a diet promises weight reduction without any exercise; it is not healthy. If you do not exercise regularly, Start by doing some light exercises like walking or yoga daily. High intensity exercises such as swimming, cycling and jogging burn a lot of calories and are thus excellent for losing weight. Joining a gym is also a good idea, as trainers can help you focus and give you the right advice.

Control: Starting on a diet, everyone is always ready to give up food but start craving it once a few days pass. Try to limit the amount of food you eat; portion control can tell you when you are full. Minimize foods which have added sugars or animal fat, and processed foods in your diet. Eat more fresh and uncooked fruits and vegetables. Prevent binge eating by not keeping candy, chocolates, ice-cream or crisps etc. at home. Drink plenty of water and fresh juices to keep well hydrated.

The aim of a diet plan is mostly to lose weight and to become healthy, keep that in mind when you want to quit!
