Is This Common Weight Loss Problem Happening to You?
How Lifestyle Affects Weight Loss: Are You Living The Right Life?
There is a growing trend among individuals who are trying to lose weight that places the focus on a total lifestyle change instead of dieting or rigorous exercise. Are you currently counting every calorie, dieting everyday, yet you are not seeing the results that you want to see?
Are you logging so much gym time that you’re losing sleep and missing out on friends – without seeing the results you want? You may be doing this only to discover that there is no change on your scales.
Although we all know that fad diets don’t work, the average person looking to lose weight will go on some type of fad diet up to four times per year. Exercise is something that can help people to be healthy, but it won’t start to get rid of fat quickly. Many studies have been done showcasing how a change in lifestyle is the best course of action for those looking to lose weight. People who have changed their lifestyle have been able to lose more than 60 pounds. So how exactly is this done?
1. Eating with understanding. When it comes to calories, there is really nothing cryptic about them. The more you consume the calories beyond what is enough for your body the more the weight the gain. You do not need to constantly count calories if you eat smart. Control the sizes of your portions; eat meals that have lots of vegetables and fruits, whole grains and lean proteins.
Two: Exercising Logically By simply walking for one hour a day, about 90% of the people who do this will inevitably lose weight. That’s all. They do not become members of gym, buy expensive equipment or engage in reps that are always painful. Even moderate exercise can get the job done as long as you’re consistent.
C. A good support system. When you surround yourself with people who influence you in a positive way, you have a good chance to lose those unwanted pounds. However, if you surround yourself with those that do not care about their bodies, you may struggle to slim down or stick to your plan.
IV. Sleeping properly. Sleep is when your body produces insulin. Insulin has a crucial role to play in appetite regulation. Also, when you’re not resting well, you tend to make poorer decisions, especially regarding food. In addition, you may not have the energy you need to stay active each day.
5. Documenting your progress. The best and most effective tool in your weight loss arsenal is journaling. When you write down exactly what you eat and the amount of exercise you have done each day, you are able to see where you can improve and where you are doing well. The habit of documenting progress, keeps you constantly in check with your daily habits, clearly showing what works for you, and what definitely does not work. If certain times and situations make it harder to eat right and get exercise, you’ll see evidence in your records. The fact that weight loss individuals who record their habits for at least six days per week are likely to lose twice the amount of weight as those who do not keep a food journal, highlights the value of documenting your food intake. A food journal makes you face your accountability over what you eat.
You should know that simply changing your lifestyle will not magically cause fat to disappear, but it is going to improve your overall quality of life, help you make the right choices, and help you become more satisfied with your life making you much more happy. Watch the weight fall off and stay off for a change. There is no moment like the present for establishing realistic weight loss goals and transforming your lifestyle to support those goals.
