5 Steps to Effective and Permanent Weight Loss

September 13, 2009

effective and permanent weight lossFact:
“90% of people who lose weight gain it all back within 6 months of weight loss”

Now you can see that losing weight is very easy, but maintaining weight loss is a difficult part. If you don’t want to become a yo-yo dieter, apply these 5 steps to total and effective weight loss management:

- Lifestyle changes
When you decide to lose weight, you need to understand that the changes you're making are all lifelong changes. You need to revamp your lifestyle for the rest of your life. Eat the healthy foods. There's no going back to fast foods or soda - ever!

- Exercise
To maintain your weight, a regular exercise program is very important. It's true that most people hate to exercise. But, you cannot maintain weight loss if you stop exercising. As you grow old, your metabolism naturally slows down and nothing can shake up your metabolism like a regular exercises.

- Drink water
Do you live from the coke can? Does your morning start with a tall glass of canned juice? Is alcohol a part of your week days? Aerated drinks, alcohol, and sugary drinks make you put on weight. If you must drink, make it a tall glass of water or green tea.

- See the label before you buy it
Even it reads 'Low Fat', you need to understand that there are calories in what you are eating and these are going to end up as fat layers within your body. Do not store foodstuffs that might tempt you to gorge. So, pay attention to the label before you buy it.

- Be flexible
People who lose weight tend to be too hard, because some of them cut out all the fun from their diet. It's humanly impossible to sustain a diet that's all hard work and no fun. Allow yourself 2-3 free meals every week. These are the times when you eat what you want to eat in limited quantities. When you give yourself the freedom of choice 10% of the time, you find it easier to follow your diet 90% of the time.

If you want to lose weight quickly and make it permanent, make it in a healthy way and at a natural pace (healthy weight loss), in that case, all you need to do is continue with your food and exercise patterns for effective and permanent weight loss.
