Three Simple Tips To Lose Weight

by Greg Cryns


Try not to make losing weight too complicated. This could defeat your plan quickly. Be aware that your body has its own intelligence that will possibly reject 

what you plan. In other words, it will make your plan very painful by making your hunger, for example. The good news is that you probably already know your body very well. 


1. Get OFF the scale.

People tend to get obsessed about the little things in life and forget the major things that really matter. Where weight loss is concerned, your objective should be to look and feel good!

Think about how to burn fat and tone up. Do your clothes feel better on you after a few days of exercise? That is a good sign. Are you less tired? Again, this is a good sign because it shows you are maintaining your energy. You are probably eating the right foods too. Do you look better in the mirror? Even a little bit is enough to boost your confidence. Are your muscles showing more tone? There you go. You now realize that its trimming your body fat, not losing weight that is your main goal.

If you strictly adhere to some famous diets you will see weight loss. But do you feel healthier for it?  If not, what is the point. Are you always hungry on those diets? If so, you will probably gain back the weight as soon as you leave that program. Remember, you want to lose body fat, not lose weight. By obsessing with your scale you will jump off the diet as soon as your scale does not show a loss in weight. The scale does not allow for ups and downs in your body that you cannot easily control. 

2. Eat better foods
You must be aware of your activity levels and the type of food you eat to keep the body fat at bay. 

You must get to a point where you feel uncomfortable when you are not doing some sort of exercise or activity. I used to deliver Little Debbie snacks to local grocery stores. All day long my body was loading and unloading cases of snacks. I was in and out of at least 10 stores a day. Yes, I felt tired at the end of the day but I discovered that the next morning my body craved that level of activity. It was like I was addicted to exercise.

But my problem was that I did not balance this exercise with really healthy foods. I still shunned vegetables and fruits for meats and sweets. I was able to maintain my weight but I did not always feel as healthy as I would have if I ate correctly. 

Your body needs lots of quality high protein foods and lots of fiber. An "ideal" diet would include lots of fresh fish, chicken and nuts that supply your body with good carbs, fiber and profuse nutrition. This does not mean that you must avoid all other foods. Just be aware and careful about the type and quantities you eat and know that if you eat too much of the bad foods you will not lose the body fat. 

3. Don't worry yourself sick

The best way to stay healthy and fit is to introduce a lot more exercise and activity into your daily life. If you don't want to do that, then just pay closer attention to the types of food you eat.
