  Weight loss

When you think of weight loss and losing weight, the first things that probably come to your mind are either "lose weight fast" articles that are in every magazine and newspaper in the world, or all of those weight loss pills that claim to be safe and allow you to "eat whatever you want and still lose weight because the pill will do all of the work for you". Of course, you could be thinking of rice cakes, never eating, and being hungry all day long.

Well, if you are thinking any of those things, forget it! I’ve got some totally free, completely easy to understand information on weight loss. Don’t worry, there’s no product sales pitch, no eBook you just can’t live without, and no set of DVD or CDs that you just have to buy. There’s no strange combination of foods to buy or expensive prepackaged foods to spend your money on.

Weight loss is a simple concept, you need to burn more calories than you consume. There are six simple steps to help you accomplish that. Here they are:

1) Count how many calories you eat in a normal day. Eat like you would normally eat, count the calories in everything you eat and drink, and keep track of it on a piece of paper or on the computer somewhere.

2) At the end of that day, add up the number of calories you ate and drank. Be as exact as possible. You now have a good idea of the number of calories you consume every day. Now, go weigh yourself.

3) Starting the day after you counted calories, eat or drink 500 calories less than you normally do. For example, if you counted 2000 calories as the total you consumed, cut out 500 calories from what you’re consuming, so you only eat or drink 1500 calories the next week or so.

4) Instead of eating three big meals a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner), or eating all day all the time, spread those calories out over five smaller meals. Eat one meal every two and a half to 3 hours. This will speed up your metabolism.

5) As much as you may not want to, exercise, especially cardio exercise is an important part of weight loss. If you don’t exercise, you’re expecting your diet to do all the work for your weight loss. You can jog, walk, swim, jump rope, ride a bike, take an aerobics class, or whatever you like to do best. All it takes is 30 minutes a day, 3 - 5 days a week.

6) At the end of that week, weigh yourself. If you’ve stuck with it, you’ll notice a difference at the end of the week. Chances are, it won’t be a 15-pound difference, or even a 10 or 5-pound difference. You shouldn’t be looking for miracles; it’s unhealthy to lose more than 1 or 2 pounds a week. Okay, so that doesn’t sound like much, but look at it this way: you can lose 5- 8 pounds a month, which adds up to 75lbs in one year. So, regardless of how much you actually have to lose, you can do it, and in a healthy, steady manner. Here are some very important weight loss tips for losing weight effectively.

Stay away from bad fat. Lower bad carbs. Drink plenty of water. In fact, replace all the soda, beer, and soft drinks with as much water as you can. Try strength training; muscles burn more calories than fat. Weigh yourself at the end of every week. If weight loss is stopping for more than two weeks, lower your calorie intake 250 more calories. But be reasonable. Never starve yourself.

See how easy it is? Well, it won’t be so easy, but if you’re dedicated about losing weight, you’ll find yourself very pleased in a surprisingly short amount of time. Don’t waste the money on diet pills or books or CDs, spend it on good quality food and a gym membership. You’ll be glad you did.
