Weight Loss Help

by Patrick Austin

We’re always seeing dozens of different diet plans on the market every month. They come and go like the latest fashion statements. There’s the low fat diet, low carb diet, high protein diet, and the list goes on and on. Most claim that their program provides the most weight loss help and will bring fast results.

However many diets fail to recognize that people are different and therefore have different needs. If a certain diet provided the most weight loss help then we would all be eating the same food, and the same meals. But this obviously doesn’t happen because everyone‘s bodies work differently.

If you really want weight loss help, you need to realize that a healthy diet and exercise is the only way to effectively lose weight and keep it off.

Here are some additional tips for weight loss help:

  • Don't weigh yourself too often. Use a tape measure and the fit of your clothes to monitor your weight loss progress. Your weight changes constantly and you can weigh more at night than you did in the morning, a downer if you stuck to your diet all day.
  • Keep plenty of crunchy foods like raw vegetables and high protein meal bars on hand. They're satisfying and filling.
  • Weight loss is easier with a friend. People can help motivate each other to succeed.
  • Remember to be consistent with your healthy eating and exercise plan.
  • Don't shop when you're hungry. You'll only buy more fattening food.
  • Avoid finger foods that are easy to eat in large amounts.
  • Avoid consuming large quantities of fattening liquids, which are easy to overdo.
  • Leave something on your plate. Its a good sign that you can stop eating if you need to.
  • Make the kitchen off-limits at any time other than mealtime.
  • Always eat at the table, never in front of the television set or with the radio on.
  • Concentrate on chewing every mouthful slowly, chew each mouthful up to 20 times.
  • Start any diet with a food diary and record everything - all diet tips, food eaten, exercise, how you felt, more diet tips. That tells you about yourself, your temptations, the emotional state that may encourage you to snack.
  • Drink plenty of water. Water itself helps cut down on water retention because it acts as a diuretic, before meals water can dull the appetite.
  • Substitute activity for eating junk food. When the cravings hit walk around the block, do some housework, read, anything just to take your mind off those old habits.
  • If you're a late-night eater, eat high fibre carbs such as a slice of brown bread or wholemeal cracker biscuit before bedtime to cut down on cravings
  • If you use food as a reward, establish a new reward system maybe buy yourself a non-edible reward.
