Lose Weight The Easy Way
Honestly, how many of us look at ourselves in the mirror every morning and wished we looked different? But most of the time it is just plain wishful thinking.
Today, it wouldn't be incorrect to point out that a lot of people are battling weight issues and obesity. Sadly, it is not the result of non-realization but because it's being constantly overlooked. Being overweight is a big problem. Apart from the health hazards, it also works havoc on the self esteem. And it needs to be addressed immediately.
Everything said and done, it is also quite understandable that time is a big factor. In this hi-tech century, determination and patience don't necessarily go hand in hand. We want results at the press of a button. Losing weight also faces the same challenge. Fast and easy being the key words.
The first word that we need to understand in any Weight Loss Program is Calories. The science behind losing weight is simple - the amount of calories you burn should be more than the amount of calories you intake. This brings us to the million dollar question: How do you do that? Well, let's get started.
Eat healthy: Like it or not, over eating is directly correlated to being fat. But this does not mean one has to starve to lose weight. Instead eat in moderation. Divide the meal into six small servings a day. Make the platter colorful with different veggies and fruits. Enjoy your meal and eat at a slow pace. Do not eat between meals and stay away from oily snacks. Drinking a glass of water before a meal to control your diet is also advisable. Midnight snacks are an absolute no no.
Exercise: To exercise doesn't mean working out like Schwarzenegger. Start by strolling around in the park, road or any available space. The idea here is to burn calories. The cheapest and the most effective ways of burning calories are to walk, jog, skip or cycle. Remember to do these activities for at least 30 minutes a day.
Change your lifestyle: Don't be a couch potato or spend hours in front of the computer. Even if the job demands it, make sure to relax once in a while and take time out to walk around in the office. Be active. Don't use your car to go everywhere. Walk.
Diet pills: Diet Pills are also a popular medium to control weight. But before getting into it, be sure to consult a doctor.
