The Best Way to lose weight?

inspirational-quotes-to-lose-weight

 

Chopping off a limb or going into space would help you lose weight but they are not the best ways. For arguments sake “losing weight” in this article is about losing fat and looking and feeling better.   There are lots of ways to lose weight but they all revolve around the same things. The most important one is you. As I heard recently, you can either change your habits long term or you can consult “the all knowing oracle” which for most is the bathroom scales. People check these all the time, they even check their weight, excercise for 30 minutes and then check again to see if the exercise has worked! WHAT!!? Crazy huh?

The second most important thing is your body. I’m no medical expert but I know our bodies are different, we react to foods in different ways like allergies or dislikes or even metabolism speeds.   I found out that our bodies (a large percentage of us) work in the same way when it comes to blood sugar and our weight. Check out this diagram.

Blood-sugar

 

Sorry it’s not the clearest of pictures but it does show how bodies react to blood sugar.  Too much and our body produces insulin and turns the sugars into fat and stores it.  From what I have read this is from the times when we found food hard to come by so we over ate when we could but then needed fat reserves to keep us alive when food was scarce. (We don’t have this problem when there are places selling food all around us)  I think the bottom third of the diagram is interesting too.  Look what happens when you skip a meal or restrict calories or carbs or exercise when hungry.  You don’t burn off fat at all!! You burn muscle!! ( I just used to think I was losing fat from all the wrong places – have you ever felt like that? Now you know why)

Here are some of the main things that I have found work for a lot of people.
1. Drink enough water (not sugared drinks) – if you start to dehydrate your body will start looking for foods with liquid in them and you’ll now be hungry as well as thirsty. Find out more from this medical article.

2. Reduce or eliminate artificial ingredients and processed food. – they take longer to digest and some contain chemicals that can damage your body or even make you crave more of the same (like an addiction so harder to resist)  You can eat loads of the healthier unprocessed foods and still lose weight.  The Paleo diet is a great example of this.  If you want to know more and get some recipe ideas click here. Another great site for recipes, I have found, is the popular SlimmingWorld site.

overeating
3. Eat when you’re hungry, eat what you crave, stop when you’re full. – you don’t have to eat at set meal times, your body knows when it needs to eat, don’t force it. If you crave the unhealthy foods you can retrain your body to crave healthier alternatives eg I’ve found that chocolate cravings can be killed with almonds and cranberries. (there are lots of alternatives on my pinterest site ) We all know the face above.  This is the”I’m full but it looks really nice” or “there are only a few more left so Ill just finish them” face.  Some of us grew up with parents who wouldn’t let us leave the table until our plates were empty and when we grew up we are still determined to leave the plate empty (even if it takes us all night).  Like I said earlier this is a bad thing to do if you want to lose weight.

4. Obvious one exercise more – you don’t have to go all out and join a gym you could just add exercise to daily tasks like do a few squats when you go to the bathroom, walk instead of taking the car on short journeys or walk faster, or even situps/pressups/planks/stretches while watching tv. A couple of popular weight loss schemes include Venus and the 3 week diet (click the links to their free videos, see what you think).

5 Mental attitude – this is for life, change your attitude to your health, the scales are not the key! Do the above and little by little you will feel better, congratulate yourself for that, you are awesome. Set yourself targets, if you hit them treat yourself to some of the bad food you have been avoiding ( if you still want it) or a meal out. You deserve it. Then move on to your next target.

“You are never too old to set a new goal or dream a new dream” – C S Lewis

Those are my top 5 tips. You don’t have to starve yourself to lose weight, eat right, exercise and believe in yourself. Good luck

    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear
    your mind prior to writing. I have had difficulty
    clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I truly
    do enjoy writing however it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions
    or tips? Kudos!
