Who Else Wants To Lose Weight? Stop Dieting!


From personal experience I have myself like all of you at one time or another tried dieting. I have lost weight on some plansbut in the long run was not able to sustain it. It seems as though every time I lost some weight I would gain it all backand then some. It was a never ending depressing cyle.

The question you should ask yourself before attempting any dietis can I live with this for the long term? Another words can Iincorporate this as part of my healthy lifestyle, day in and day out?

And the reason most people can't is very simple. There are anumber of reasons and i will name a few. When you deprive yourself of some of the foods you like human nature takes overyou "resent it" food is suppose to be a pleasurable experienceone of the many joys in life. How does it make you feel whenyou can't have something?

Usually when people diet they lose energy. Your body is use to a certain amount of calories and now you cut down and you becomelethargic and tired, and energy levels drop.

Dieting lowers your metabolism. Your body will go into starvation mode making it harder and harder to achieve results.

Dieting usually causes hunger signals to increase and we startto get cravings, and they are usually carb cravings and any excess sugar usually ends up around our waistline or hip area.

Dieting creates a false sense of confidence because most of thetime the more you diet the harder it becomes and now a sense ofguilt creeps in everytime you eat a food on that forbidden list.

Usually when you lose weight on a diet a lot of it is water,and muscle. At all costs you want to preserve muscle mass because in a resting state muscle burns more calories thanfat. So again what have you really done here? Set yourself upfor failure again.

Have you ever seen a thin fat person???????? A person who lookslike there at their proper weight but if you feel their bodythey are soft, soggy, and what I call fleshy. A high percentageof fat, even though they might be in a good weight range.

On the other hand you see someone who weighs 250lbs. with 4-6%bodyfat and are mostly all muscle. Now they too as far weightgoes may not fall into proper weight ranges, but as we all knowmuscle does weigh more than fat!

This is why I don't believe in BMI (body mass index}. I reallydon't give it any relevence at all. That is in my humble opiniononly.

So what is the solution to the problem?

The very first question you want to ask yourself is: Can I seemyself sticking to this program or routine for life? If theanswer is no forget it. If you can answer yes and live happilywith your decision then you are onto something.

Throw away the scale. Dump it. This is a microwave society ifyou don't see results quickly people usually lose interest. Abetter barometer of results is your clothes that have all of asudden become too tight and uncomfortable. You have to understand that a lot of times following a sensible exerciseand nutrition program weight will shift and the scale may notreflect it. Loss of inches and toning will.

What is my game plan? Well I hate to be redundant but the onlything that works long term is regular and consistent physicalactivity and a sensible eating plan. Now I could tell you whatto eat but I really feel that most people know what they haveto do. And as far as exercise all I can say is do what you enjoywhether it is running, weightlifting, rebounding, tennis,rollerblading, skateboarding, it doen't matter. If you enjoyit you will be consistent. Dont do something just because itwill burn more calories faster, you won't keep it up.

I will share with you my personal strategy that has worked forme and I can live with it very comfortably. And i think mostpeople could do the same.

1.) USE SMALLER PLATES: Instead of using normal dinner plates.This allows me to eliminate nothing! I eat everything. ButI obviously don't eat as much of the food that is bad for me.SO I DON'T FEEL DEPRIVED. Pizza, ice cream, chips, etc. I thinkthe word here is everything in MODERATION.

2.)Eat 5-6 times a day, instead of 3. I know it is hard just do it! This works well with the smaller plate concept. You will notbe hungry if you eat every 2-3 hours. I bring cans of tuna withme on the road, apple, and string cheese.

3.) Doing this actually speeds up your metabolism. You will become a fat burning machine instead of a fat storing machine.

4.) Limit alcohol, all it really is a lot of sugar. If you needto have one the best are dry wines, scotch, and vodka. Avoidthe mixers with sugars. Add water, soda water, or diet tonics.

5.) For snacks I like smoothies and protein drinks.By addingnutri-sweet/or vanilla extract It can curb carve cravings.Bananas are another excellent choice.

6.) Your exercise of choice. (MAKE AN APPOINTMENT WITH YOU).Treat it like any other priority. I like to see a minimum of 3workouts per week. Make the time, and be consistent.Enjoy it!

There you have it. (REMEMBER! IT IS A LIFESTYLE CHANGE)if you want long term results. Not a quick fix.
