 Losing weight is a toughest task one even imaging it to be and especially for those who are food lovers. And the fact is that the food lovers are also having obesity issue. The food is not poison, it will not make us obese until and unless we consume it in moderation and in a healthy way. The junk food, oily stuff, creamy delights and the sugary drinks, all those are the culprit of obesity and weight gain.  If you’ve tried and failed to lose weight before, you may believe that diets don’t work for you. You’re probably right: traditional diets don’t work—at least not in the long term. However, there are plenty of small but powerful ways to avoid common dieting pitfalls, achieve lasting weight loss success, and develop a healthier relationship with food.

The weight loses of a pound need 3500 calories. So if you go for reducing 500 calories from you diet then it’s very easy to lose one pound a week. The weight lose with starving type of exercise has three big disadvantages,

  • The extreme dieting leave us cranky and starving thus we consume high calorie food to satisfy hunger
  • We did not able to continue the dieting program for long term
  • The body becomes deficient to many mineral and vitamins and we feel week and lethargic

You can lose weight without feeling depressed. By making smart choices every day, you can develop new eating habits and preferences that will leave you feeling satisfied—and winning the battle of the bulge.

Make small changes in life style:

Losing weight is not only about cutting off food but also burning calories too. Try to use stairs rather than elevator, take a walk of 5 minutes after every hour of sitting

Learn to say no to food:

The hard task, when your favorite food is in front of you and someone is saying please eat it, ahhh how can we do that, but you have to lean to say no. Eating without thinking is the main malefactor of weight gain. Once you have made up your mind that you will not go for unhealthy high calorie food then follow your pat strictly

Eat every 2-3 hour:

Giving long gaps between meals and eating 3 time a day will either leaves you hungry all the time or make you to eat big portions on every meal. It’s best to eat small meals every 2-3 hours to avoid the attack of hunger giant. The two hourly meals should be like a hand full of nuts, an apple, a carrot, a cup of low fat yoghurt, a glass of skimmed milk, or boiled egg etc.

Watch you food portion:

It’s the hardest task to just put a full stop to your favorite high calories food at once. You can eat whatever you want, yes I say it again whatever you want but watch the portion size. Just have a bite or two and eat it slowing so that you taste buds enjoy its taste to the full. Dumping up the food in tummy is a problem not one or two bits.

Incorporate fresh fruits and vegetable in diet:

The fresh fruits and vegetables are loaded with essential vitamins and minerals and have very less calories as compared to the highly processed and oily food. Eating them will not only support your weight loss program but also help in maintaining healthy mind and body. So if you are up to give gift to someone who is following weight loss program this Christmas, so send Christmas fruit basket rather than chocolates and cakes.
