Now that you are focusing on losing those big pounds and getting your stomach in shape, let me tell you that you CAN do it. Yeah, no matter what others say, weight loss is very much possible and achievable. But in order to lose weight, there are certain guidelines that you must follow.
Most people fail to lose weight not because they were in the wrong program or using the wrong diet pills but because they failed to follow these three simple rules.
Eat Fruits and Vegetables
Since you want to lose weight, naturally you need to do away with the junk and calorie-rich foods that you have been eating for so long. Pastas, burgers, chips, cakes, biscuits, etc., are a big NO-NO. You must replace these foods with healthy alternatives, such as fruits and vegetables. It is best to eat fruits in their raw forms; this makes you feel fuller faster so you eat less.
As for vegetables, it is good if you can eat them in raw form too, but I think it is probably impossible to do. That is why I suggest that you cook foods with as minimal oil as possible. Also, choose oil that is free from animal fat, just to make sure that your oil doesn’t make you fat!
Don’t Eat Food Too Fast
Being in a hurry is never a good thing, more so when you are looking forward to shedding some pounds. You should never eat your food too quickly because that would result in indigestion. Besides, food consumed in a hurry doesn’t increase your metabolic rate much. And thirdly, if you eat food slowly, you will be able to call it a day sooner than if you eat it too fast!
Get Support from Someone Close
Weight loss requires you to be self-disciplined and focus, but often, you might get bored with your bland diet plan. If this is the case with you, why not have a partner who would agree to eat the same food as you? Believe it or not, even the most boring food would appear delicious if you see someone else eating it too!
You can also have your partner participate in your workout sessions. Once again, it would take away the boredom out of you. Oftentimes people don’t want to exercise because they feel bored; having someone to support you throughout the exercise session will boost your confidence and motivate you to work harder!
