When I married my wife, I weighed 165, I was in great shape and extremely active, but I started to work more and more and work out less and less, I would pay less attention to the foods that I would eat. Over the course of 15 months and I ended gaining 60 pounds. My job doesn’t require much physical activity (I sit in a chair and stare at a computer all day long), so it was hard to lose the weight and keep it off. I love food and at one point in my life, I could eat anything that I wanted and not gain a pound, I failed to realize that my body wasn’t burning off the calories that I was bringing in. It wasn’t until I started to feel embarrassed going swimming or feeling tired all of time that I decided to make a change. I tried all of the different programs out there, but none of them worked. I was looking for the “become thin in 24 hours” perfect solution, it wasn’t until trying and failing multiple times that I realized there is no such thing. Don’t waste the time with the magic weight loss pills, stick with what has been proven to work, diet and exercise. There are some great programs that will teach you correct and effective dieting and exercising techniques.
Over time, I have learned some different techniques that help in losing weight and keeping it off. It all starts with effective dieting and exercise. Here are some tips that have helped me in losing weight.
Tips for weight loss
1) Fruits and vegetables
Fruits and vegetables are very healthy for you. They have a lot of fiber and antioxidants. In addition to this, eating raw fruits and vegetables will make you feel fuller, faster! The amounts of calories that fruit and vegetables have are really low. So be sure to eat plenty of them!
2) Eat in Proportions
Never overfill yourself. Eat until you are satisfied but do not overeat. Remember, you can always pack food up and save it for later. Remember this tip when you got out to eat at a restaurant or fast food!
Instead of three big meals a day, eat less but more frequently. Doing so will keep your blood sugar levels in check. It will help avoid a calorie overload. Try to eat 5-6 small meals in a day.
4) Better Choices
Avoid fast food and processed food, they have more sodium and fat. You can lose weight just by eating home cooked meals.
5) Be Consistent
Do not jump into eating healthy right away. Allow yourself time to eat some of the foods you really like. A consistent change will give you more hope than a quick change and failure. A slow progression will give you faith about your overall progress.
6) Understand Food Nutrition
Fat free claims on products do not necessarily mean that the product is low in calories. Read the nutrition facts on the label to avoid foods that are high in sugar and fat. Do not be fooled by misleading labels that can be put on any product.
Try to drink 8 glasses of water a day. It helps to avoid pop,coffee, and anything else loaded with sugar.
Exercise for 30 min 60 minutes each day to burn off calories. This is one great way to lose a lot of body fat.…
