How to Lose Weight Without the Yo-Yo Dieting
Are you trying to lose those extra pounds quick? If you are looking for a "quick way" to lose weight, there are no shortages of fad diets around. Most people today get caught in the "latest and greatest" diet fads, promising to help you lose several pounds in as little as a week or two. Most of these diets claim you can lose weight fast with minimal effort. You may have heard some of the promises, "lose 10 pounds in a week", "how to lose weight fast", "shed your body fat in 10 days". If you've been trying to lose weight, these types of diets can be very tempting... but buyer beware! There is no magic pill, or no special combination of foods that will MAKE you lose weight. As a matter of fact, most of these fad diets are not worth trying at all.
The truth is, unfortunately, many of us have followed these fad diets and these types of diets can do more harm to your health than good. Most of these fad diets don't work to help you lose weight and keep the weight off long term. In addition, the weight most lose initially is put back in with EXTRA pounds. With this being said, to fully understand how to lose weight and keep it off, we all need to come to an understanding of how our bodies work pertaining to dieting. It's important that we briefly mention the importance of knowing your numbers. For example, know your ideal weight, your blood pressure, your body mass index, your cholesterol levels, etc. Knowing these numbers will enable you to maximize your weight loss efforts with a plan that is just a right fit for your body. An in depth discussion on these numbers will follow later. For now, let's start by talking about the effects of the fad dieting on our bodies.
Fad diets attract dieters who seek to get quick results. When you try a fad diet, you will likely lose pounds in a matter of days as promised since you will be eating a very restricted diet. When you make significant changes in your body, your body will react. Most of the time, the weight you lose over the course of the first few days is usually just water weight and/or muscle mass. These fad diets are also restrictive and boring, making it difficult to sustain over the long term. Once you stop the diet and resume your normal lifestyle, chances are that you will gain the weight back - with a few additional pounds.
The answer is a balanced eating plan that includes proper nutrients combined with moderate physical activity. Losing weight is as simple as it is difficult. No specific food or product can cause weight gain or loss. The only way to lose weight is to change your habits and consistently eat fewer calories and exercise more over a period of time. To lose weight you need to eat less calories than you burn. Eat a balanced diet rich in all food groups; focusing on what to eat, instead of focusing on what not to eat. Increase your activity level by performing daily moderate exercise and you will feel better emotionally, mentally, and physically. It is so simple but yet few of us are capable of doing it, although doing this will change your life.
