Whether you just want to lose one or two kilos for a special occasion or you should lose enough weight for the sake of your health, weight loss frustrates everyone. Here are some ideas to help you lose weight without losing your mind, and without any surgery.
Look achievable goals Losing weight does not happen much of the night to morning, no matter what TV commercials say about their diets. What is important in any difficult task you need done is to reduce it to small goals you can reach more easily. The same applies to weight loss. Say you want to lose 5 kilos for the reunion with your classmates in high school. Divide the amount to kilos per month. It is an easy goal to achieve and you do if you start now.
Change your diet one element at a time Diets often fail because people try to rebuild their diet completely because you think so miraculously lose weight. That means that all the food you used to enjoy are now banned and, therefore, you start to crave. So you give in and swoop... diet and goodbye! So, plan your new diet with intelligence, changing only one element at a time. Perhaps you could start by drinking tea or water instead of soda. At first, let your food be your healthy lunch. If you only change one element at a time, your body and your mind will have time to make the adjustments needed.
Enjoy exercise People often do not like physical stress and sweat involved in an exercise regimen, such as exercising in a gym, and it bothers them. Therefore, it is best to do the exercises you enjoy and be active, like walking through the mall when shopping with friends, doing a sport or go swimming. It is a more positive attitude towards the idea of exercising and burns those calories without even realizing it.
Not mean to kill you practice your If an exercise causes you discomfort when you try to do, change the other. If walking leaves you breathless, take a short break from time to time. If exercise causes you physical pain, will sabotage your weight loss plans and end up feeling defeated. You have to go little by little and letting you adapt slowly to this new lifestyle.
Reward When you reach a goal, give yourself a small reward that does not include food. For example, buy a new piece of clothing, change your hairstyle or visit a special friend or relative, someone to share your success. It is a positive reinforcement and gives you something to miss when you're losing weight. So stop feeling that you're losing your mind along with the kilos.
The key to this is losing weight slowly, safely and sensibly. Otherwise, you’ll be depressed because they achieved the desired results. When you feel so, you may resort to emotional eating, and start, that's the reason why many people gain as much weight.
