4 Easy Ways to Handle a Stress Free Weight Loss Plan
I have tried many diet plans, from the various low-carb diets to Weight Watchers to the Abs Diet to Slim Fast to low-calorie to low-fat and more. I’ve tried a bunch of exercise programs Too. My weight-loss efforts these last couple of years have been a yo-yo, as I’ve struggled to find something that works for me. Recently, I think I’ve been able to find some pretty simple concepts that’s been working for me. We must find a balance with our weight loss plan if we want to see a long-lasting effect. It’s more like a lifestyle rather than a short-term fix. Make it fun and focus on the process rather than the results.
#1: Get some new friends. We get so caught up in how many pounds we’ve lost. It’s so hard to realize that the weight just sort of settles back in. Not to mention that the more we try to make it disappear, the more we can see it show up! Our brain begins to think that the weight’s a permanent thing, and we don’t have the willpower to get it off. So we get defensive or frustrated that the body doesn’t accept the diet. The answer is to connect with others that are going through similar conditions. We can learn from each other and be better counselors. There are friends to meet out there, as many people have struggled with this same thing that we are. We can get some guidance and inspiration from other people who are losing weight with success. This means that when we don’t see any results, we know that we aren’t lost and that it’s not permanent.
#2: Focus on the process. Make sure that you eat right and take your supplements. Just take the diet and workout routine as a whole. Some people like to weigh their food intake, some don’t, some like to drink a certain number of ounces of water, and some don’t. Just make sure that you are doing everything that you need to make sure that you don’t put on the weight back. There are many ways to do this. If you don’t like doing the math, you can use a simple rule of thumb. If you weigh your food intake, it would take a lot more time to do it all. If you eat just some of the time, it will save you the time that it would take to do it.
The rule of thumb: we have more control over what we put into our mouth than we have to get rid of our weight.
For example: It takes 25 minutes of intense workout to burn 250 calories. One chocolate chip cookie from Subway is 220 calories. If you skip the cookie and have a small orange it would only be 45 calories and it will satisfy your craving for sweets.
#3: Get some help. If you struggle with your diet, take a friend along. You’ll need a little support to get through the workout routine. They can point out the good and bad parts of the diet, and keep you on track. Some people believe that they can do it on their own, but they are wrong. It is much better to get some friends, co-workers, and family to help you. They may not always agree with your choices and suggestions, but they can keep you on track. When your family is helping you, you will be less likely to go off your diet, because they know that you love what you are doing. You can also call a professional fitness trainer to help you with your workouts. Just make sure that you take their input seriously. A professional trainer can be paid to help people achieve their goals. These people may be paid to keep people on track with their diet plans, and have more experience than most people. A nutritionist is another option.
#4: Know your limits. Don’t push yourself too hard. Be intentional about your workout and the whole process. Some people go too hard, and it leads to pain. Even though it’s better to increase your leaves of workout gradually, doing too much to lose weight can lead to pain. Another thing is that you can have foods that will give you energy and also boost your metabolism. So, do adjust your diet in a way that will give you energy. The goal is to be consist with your work out. Make it fun by alternating between 2-3 different types of work out in a week. Always listen to your body.
