Looking for the best way to lose weight? Feeling overwhelmed by the plethora of options and not sure where to start? You are not alone. The quest for a finer figure and better health supports a million dollar industry
And the funny things is the most of the things we can do to enjoy effective weight loss have less to do with the things we do –our efforts to lose weight– as we it does with the way we live –which promotes the ideal weight and best health possible.
Tip 1: Release the Illusion of Change
When determination is set, anxiety surging and ambition high –the human body not in the optimal condition to affect a change like weight loss. When we are relaxed and in a comfortable routine our bodies respond to changes in our diet and exercise routine more readily.
Furthermore, many popular diet and exercise programs promise specific results in a certain amount of time –a claim that is not only very unrealistic but potentially quite dangerous. The facts are that humans are very different from each other, not just males from females but metabolisms, heights, weights, body types and more.
If an individual begins an exercise program focused on the results promised or experienced by another person, they lose focus of their own body’s capacity for change –how weight is best lost, in which time frames and with which goals.
Such external standards can bring frustration, feelings of hopelessness and unnecessary anxiety –which are all have weight gaining effects.
Tip 2: The Lifestyle First! Diet and Exercise Next
Before your lifestyle can support any demands or changes a program of diet and exercise will affect, it is important that it is solid and consistent. If you already have a healthy diet you enjoy, an active lifestyle and are getting plenty of regular sleep…
…Well then, you are all set to begin enjoying the benefits of an appropriate program of diet and exercise. By understanding the amount of food your body demands to perform it daily functions you will understand how to increase your workload by increasing your dietary intake.
This will give you a good idea of the best workout type –one that seems manageable and will not demand more energy than your lifestyle can offer– and the most appropriate diet to support it. By getting regular restful sleep you will be better able to resist anxieties about never achieving your results.
The most effective weight loss methods may be those you find advertised online or in popular magazines but they will avail you little if you have not built a healthy lifestyle first. Remember that the most effective changes are those that begin within and overflow onto the exterior –Inner Beauty.
Once you learn the dynamics of your own body’s supply and demand of nutrition and energy, you will find it much easier to interface with it –and you will understand the term “fitness” as it applies to you. Than you can finish off the transformation by dressing the part and improving the outer beauty as well.
