Do’s And Don’ts Of Weight Loss

It’s not really as simple as a tomato on a fork

In this quick post, the Do’s and Don’ts of weight loss are going to be discussed. For those who are too confused with all the information out there about losing weight and getting fit, this post will set you on the right path hopefully as the internet is filled with information that is not good for your health even though they might actually get you to lose weight.

Losing weight is not the only priority that one should have when it comes to looking good and getting healthy. One should lose weight as safely as possible. Slower and safer weight loss is long lasting and the weight you lose is the weight that has a very slim chance of coming back. In the case of losing weight at an unsafe and fast pace, there is a big chance of regaining the weight that you would lose.

All the different methods of losing weight in a healthy way have been discussed before, right now some DO’s and Don’ts will be mentioned in order to ensure that you remain clear in your mind about how to lose weight no matter which new method comes out next weekend to lose weight fast or slow. Here they are

  • Weigh yourself often. People who succeed at losing weight are not afraid of weighing themselves regularly. How regularly? It all comes down to your own preferences but you must weigh yourself at least twice every month. Some people like to weigh themselves once a week or twice a week. Some like to weight themselves once every day. It all depends on you and what gives you more motivation to continue to work hard in order to lose weight and get fit. Research has shown that people who do weigh themselves often tend to lose weight more efficiently and are able to keep that weight off as well.
  • One other thing that you should be aware of is that if you want to lose weight you do not really have to cut back on all the fat that you can find in your diet. You only need to get rid of saturated fats which are bad for your health. You need to reduce the amount of fat in your diet. But do not completely remove it as research has shown that fats can help you feel fuller after eating and hence you can easily cut down the calories you get from desserts and seconds. And besides, your body does need some form of fat in order to function properly. The best way to do this is to remove butter and processed foods from your diet. Replace them with olive oils, fish, tofu and may be some nuts (be careful, nuts can be loaded with calories so take them in small amounts).
  • One other no brainer for people who want to lose weight is that, you should drink lots of water before your meals. Your every meal. That will help you fill up and will make you eat less. Studies have shown that people who drink water before their meals lose more weight than those who did not drink any water before their meals. There also have been studies where it has been shown that cold chilled water can help you eat a lot less, can increase your metabolism and burn up some fat too. Not to mention that water helps you stay hydrated and when you drink lots of water, your kidney store less of it at any given moment and thus your water weight also reduces.
