Simple Weight Loss Strategies

PHYSICAL EXAMINATION

I would first recommend that you see your doctor for a physical examination and blood work. Some illnesses may lead to obesity or weight gain. Drugs such as steroids and some antidepressants may also cause weight gain. You also want to know that you are physically capable of beginning an exercise program.

EXERCISE

Yes, I know you read an advertisement for some product promoting fat loss and weight without exercise. If it was that good would not everyone be using it. The habit of a regular exercise routine will go a long way to help you reach your weight loss goals; not to mention how much better you will feel. How about something simple as partnering with a friend or significant other with similar goals and going for a daily 30 minute walk. If that is too much, do 3-10 minute walks during the day and work up to it. Make it fun; talk about family, a book you read, movie or show that you saw. You can also choose to be quiet and use that time to clear your thoughts. Before you know it, you will look forward to it.

Now you know we are going to have to talk about what you eat. It is really quite simple: If you consume too many calories than you can burn for that day you will gain weight. That does not mean you skip meals. Your body needs fuel to perform daily life activity. Skipping meals or not eating can potentially cause the body to go into a “starvation mode” and the body will slow down because the body will always do what is necessary to survive. This strategy may see some pounds come off quickly in the short term. Long term you are likely to plateau and get frustrated. Regulating your calorie consumption is the key to successful aminofitin ราคา and maintenance. A balanced diet will assist with curbing your hunger and providing the necessary nutrients for health and wellness

DIET

Planning your diet is crucial in meeting your weight loss goals. Most successful weight loss programs if not all require you to keep a daily food log. First,  take a hard look at what you eating and drinking now. Find ONE THING to eliminate daily first. For example, there are many folks drinking regular soda and/or caffeinated sodas. START by changing to diet soda, caffeine free and substituting filtered water gradually. That alone can save you hundreds of calories. THEN make your next choice. Another example would be to substitute 3 gram fiber wheat bread for white or low fat milk versus regular.

WATER

Despite the fact that most diets call for drinking at least eight, 8-ounce glasses of water a day, few studies have been done to determine if the practice actually speeds weight loss. Researchers in Germany report that water consumption increases the rate at which people burn calories. The impact is modest and the findings are preliminary, but the researchers say their study could have important implications for weight-control programs. The findings are reported in the December 2004 issue of The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism.

CAFFEINE

What about caffeine and weight gain or loss. I reviewed multiple articles on this topic. Marketers of fad diets and weight-loss supplements often exaggerate the benefits of caffeine, claiming that caffeine will significantly curb your appetite and help you drop pounds quickly. However, clinical studies on the relationship between caffeine and weight loss donot support these claims.
