One of the main reasons that it is so hard to lose weight today is because a lot of diets are based on fad dieting concepts. Despite what most of the weight loss world tells you, low fat, low carbohydrate diets do not work because they cause your metabolism to slow down.
To get you started I have five great weight loss tips and tricks to get you started.
1. After you eat breakfast drink water.
Drink water after breakfast and during the day. Your body is made up of 70% water and you need 6 to 8 glasses of water daily.
2. Walk for 30 minutes a day.
Walking is a great way to exercise and it is better for you than jogging. It is a lot easier on the knees. Walking everyday is enough to prevent weight gain in most people.
3. Drink nonfat milk instead of whole milk.
You will get the same nutritional benefits of whole milk without all the fat.
4. Don't eat unless you are hungry.
Don't eat just because you have food in the house. When you are bored, find something to do besides eating. Take up a hobby, a hobby that has nothing to do with food. Go for a bike ride or go swimming. Anything but eating.
5. Stop eating sweets and candy.
Cutting out candy and sweets will greatly help you on your mission to lose weight. You could lose an extra five pounds or more a month just by not eating sweets. These weight loss tips should help get you started on the right path to lose weight quickly.
