losing some weight you will have seen and indeed been bombarded by media images,
advertisements, telling us the next best thing to lose weight. There are
countless weight loss diets that preech to make you lose weight and lots of it,
well im here to tell you that in the short term yes you may, but, as soon as you
relapse back into your old ways it comes back and twice as fast.
There information behind weight loss and how to do it can be confusing and simply misleading. Check the blog to see articles which explain in more detail and offer some solutions. Basically, when all said and done you need to understand a few simple strategies which underpin weight
loss. When i say weight loss i mean over the long term and not just a 2 month flirt with losing weight only to see it pile back on.
Principles I follow when working and advising clients are simply -
1. Eat a Balanced Diet - Take in plenty of protein, unsaturated fats and do not overload on
2. Drink Plenty of Water - Drink at least 1.5 litres per day at an absolute minimum, preferably more, especially if you exercise or have a physical job.
3. Eating Technique - Chew your food!! eat slowly and your body will tell you when you are
full. Portion size is also vitally important, most people eat more than they need, hence why we have such a high rate of overweight and obese people in the westen world.
4. Don't Pick on Poor Food - Most of us do it! or have
done it! cut out the biscuits, chocolate, cakes , crisps etc. we do not need
them! These foods have a high calorie content and the body simply stores the excess energy we do not use as Fat. try to avoid processed foods and go for fresh food.
5. Move/Exercise - We are designed to move and need to
move our bodies and not sit around. Active bodies burn more calories and
therefore burn off stored fats as a source of energy. Notice how when you sit
around and are not active we feel lethargic and stiff as a board!. You body is a
sophisticated structure designed to move, sitting around and being idle will
lead it not to function correctly. Just look at the number of people with
joint/mobility issues, bad backs etc. you only have one body look after it!.
