Weight Loss Tips – How to Un-Friend Fats

Updated on November 14, 2011

It is out of the question that being too thin is not a good thing to happen to your body at all. Nonetheless, it is not a good thing, either, in case you end up having a body with an excessive weight. That’s right, overweight or obesity is a very bad thing to happen indeed. When you are too fat, you become very vulnerable to a lot more diseases. Diabetes, heart attack and even various types of cancer diseases are very fond of becoming friend to those obese people. With that being said, you may want to take a good look over these few tips to help you un-friend fats. Believe it or not, you will find these tips pretty handy in the end.


To start it off, you can’t take exercise for granted. It is actually far more important than what you may think. Taking exercises for a minimum of 30 minutes per day is a must if you want to lose your body weight for a long term. However, if you are trying to make an excuse that you don’t seem to have enough time for exercising, listen to this. Researches that have been carried out recently have proven that you can separate those 30 minutes of exercise into 3 session of exercises, 10 minutes each. According to the researches, you will get just the same effects.

Eat Slower

Trying to eat slower is the next pretty effective method to help you shed some pounds off your body. This is why those who eat slower tend to have a thinner or slimmer body posture. The fact behind this is that human brain needs a minimum of about 20 minutes before it can signal a person that the stomach is full already. However, those that tend to eat pretty fast tend to beat these 20 minutes’ time. As a result, they won’t feel full until they have already eaten much.

Diet Doesn’t Help, but Lifestyle Does

If you solely count on your diet menus, you will almost certainly become overweight once again, not long after you think you have successfully gotten over your obesity. You may be surprised to hear that. However, fact is, diets last only for a temporary time, but that is not the case with lifestyle. Whether you realize it or not, you are actually changing your habits to be more positive, too, when you change your lifestyle. With a new lifestyle that is not fat friendly, you will find yourself easily maintaining your body weight even without you realizing it.

Video Games May Help

It’s amazing, isn’t it? Yet, that’s the truth these days. Take the Xbox 360 and its Kinect technology for examples. While you are playing with the Xbox along with its Kinect, you will be asked to move your body in order to finish or defeat the game. This way, your body will sweat quite considerably if you play it long enough.

Join a Weight Loss Community

Humans are social creatures and that’s a fact that can never be denied. With that being said, you may well have more strength and willingness to lose and then maintain your body weight so that you don’t get obese again if you happen to receive support and encouragement from other parties constantly.
