Easy Weight Loss - Make A Start Right Now!
Your change begins!
Oh dear, oh dear, it's that time of year but yet again! The holidays are over, Christmas has come and gone, and what is there to look forward to! Summer holidays We suppose, but they do seem such a long time away.
Anyway, We must confess that at the moment, even the thought of a holiday horrifies us, because after our over-indulgence during the festive season, the last thing that we want to be doing is even more eating and drinking.
So, if there is nothing to look forward to for now, and we are in the midst of the January depression, what on earth CAN we do to lift ouselves out of the blues at this time of year!
Here's one thought for you, start right now and get fit. We suggest that not only will that make you feel heaps better, after a few weeks, you will even start to look forward to that summer vacation. Let us give you another more serious and compelling reason for this, and that is that we all shoud start to take your long term health much more seriously than you do at present.
At least that is our humble opinion.
Did you know for instance that current statistics reveal that 75% of Americans are overweight and 40% are obese. That is just in the US, and We are prepared to hazard an educated guess that the rest of the developed world is not far behind.
For those who desire to lose weight and obtain optimal health therefore, it can be overwhelming trying to figure out where to start.
From the Atkins Diet to the South Beach Diet, from low fat to low carb diets, there are numerous weight-loss plans to choose from.
In addition, given conflicting information as to what works best, it can be difficult deciding what to do.
For those who have tried many diet plans with no success, it becomes more difficult and frustrating. Many people forget that a diet might work wonders for their friend but won't work well for them.
This is not necessarily because the diet is "bad", but because each body reacts differently.
However, there is a way to lose weight that is easy, fast, and doesn't involve deprivation or calorie counting.
It is important to address some background information about body genetics and why weight loss can be difficult before we start to discuss weight loss tips.
At the start of any diet, it is important to note that each person has a different body build. Some people are short and stout, while others are tall and thin. Some have big hips and shoulders, and others are short and very muscular. Genetics can determine body shape and a person's natural build just as it can do eye color, hair color, skin color, and so on.
The good news is that genetics do not determine whether or not one will be fat, but will determine one's body shape.
This means that not every woman can expect to be tall and thin like a Hollywood actress or supermodel such as Tyra Banks. Not every man can expect to be defined and muscular like The Rock. The goal really, in our opionion, is to be at a comfortable weight for one's body shape and to feel good about it.
Having said all that, why is it that people are overweight!
We have listed ten of the most common reasons below:
1. Slow metabolism - People who are overweight have a hard time "burning off" their intake of food. As a result the fat is stored up in the body, rather than used.
2. Emotional eating - Those who struggle with weight often eat when stressed, or when other emotional upheavals are happening in their life.
3. Hormonal imbalances - This does mainly apply to the ladies, (complex creatures that we are!).
4. Eating portions - We can all be guilty of the syndrome that we like to call "greed not need". So watch out for those portion sizes.
5. A build up of toxins in the body - This can be due to too much junk food, candies, sodas, too much coffee, these can all contriubute to this.
6. Eating too late - Late-night eating can cause food to convert to fat a lot more easily, as well as making sleep more difficult.
7. A high susceptibility to growth hormones - These are the hormones which are given to animals to help them grow faster and larger. Some meat and dairy can have some residual growth hormones. These hormones can sometimes result in increased fat storage.
8. Not eating breakfast - This really does make your metabolism slow and sluggish.
9. Numerous diets - Going from diet to diet has a negative impact on the metabolism and causes weight loss to be much more difficult.
10. Food ingredients - The reasons why are amazing and beyond the scope of this article.
Here Are Seven Simple Steps For Easy Weight Loss
Now that there is a better understanding of body genetics, and why people have a tendency to be overweight,
here are our tips for fast easy weight loss.
#1: Drink some water first thing in the morning. Ideally you should drink eight ounces of distilled water, bottled water, or filtered water (not tap water).
#2: Eat a big breakfast. Suggested foods to choose from are apples, bananas, rye bread with no sugar, plain yogurt, tuna, tomatoes, carrots, peppers, raw honey, and such like.
#3: Drink distilled water throughout the day: We recommend that you try and drink at least eight glasses per day.
#4: Walk non-stop one hour each day. This doesn't have to be power walking, just walk at your own pace. Walking is one of the best forms of exercise you know!
#5: Try and stop eating after 6:00 PM. This is very hard for many people, but do the best you can. You will be surprised at how much you benefit from this.
#6: Do a candida cleanse. Candida is yeast overgrowth in the colon that can cause all kinds of health problems. Check online for "Candida Cleanse" or go to your local health food store.
#7: Do a colon cleanse: This cleanse cleans out the digestive system, which is clogged and sluggish in many overweight people. Once again, check online or go to your local health food store.
More and more people worldwide are becoming overweight. Extra weight can result in many health issues and negatively impact your emotional state and self-esteem.
However for those struggling with this problem, there is hope, because you can lose it and keep it off if you really want to.
How to Make Losing Weight A Little Easier
The real challenge
As you probably know, starting a weight loss diet is one of the easiest things a person can do. Staying with it, well, that’s another thing entirely.
There are so many reasons that people just can’t seem to stay with their weight loss attempts.
If you are like most people, you probably have a pretty full schedule nearly every day with what seems like more things to do than hours in the day to get them done. Between work, school and things at home that need to be done, it’s no wonder that it can be so hard to find time to lose weight.
Most of the time you are probably eating haphazardly, eating whatever is fast, convenient and can be eaten on the go. Your average day never seems to give you the time to exercise. Well, if you are serious about losing that extra weight there are a few things you can do that will help make your quest a little easier. It will still take some effort on your part, but you can do it.
To start with, you need to have a plan. Weight loss is a long term goal, and while long term goals may be important, they often do not have a sense of urgency. It is too easy for less important things, but things that have to get done right now, to take over and put your long term goal on the back burner.
The way to remedy this is to break your long term goal down into a series of short term ones, then break these short term ones into things that find their way onto your daily “to do” list. Make a list of what you want to accomplish with your weight loss plan and be specific. Rather than saying “I would like to lose this extra weight”, say “I want to lose 20 pounds in the next six months”.
Now that you have a long term goal for yourself, you need a plan of action to make it a reality. This is where you now say “to do this, I want to lose 3-4 pounds each month”.
Now that you’ve set yourself up with a series of short term goals, you need to say to yourself “I will lose one pound every week until I have lost 3-4 pounds this month”. Now keep in mind that it is not enough to simply have the goal. You need to remind yourself of it everyday, all day.
Put your goal of losing one pound each week on your refrigerator door, on your computer screen, your calendar or your day planner, and even on the dashboard of your car. This way your plan is always there with you everyday, all day to keep you reminded of just how important it is, where ever you go.

You probably won’t be able to make all of the changes you want to all at once. To be realistic about it, select one or two things like snacking or fast food to eliminate, and focus on those things. Write down what you want to do different, and make it part of your ‘things to do today” list. Each day as you do these things, mark it off as done for that day. By doing this, you can see that you really are achieving your goals and you will feel so good about yourself each day for making yourself stay committed to it.
If one day here and there you didn’t accomplish your daily goal, do not feel defeated and do not get down about it. What you need to do here is sit down and assess the situation to figure out why it didn’t happen that day. Perhaps you just need to plan your day a little better.
If you had planned to bring a low fat, healthy lunch with you but got rushed and did not have the time to make it, start making it the night before and keep it in the fridge, then all you have to do is grab it and go. Remember, you are only human and you will make mistakes, but the important thing is that you learn from your mistakes and move ahead rather than letting them defeat you.
Take a few minutes at the end of each day to reflect on everything that you did that day, and to plan out your next day. The little bit of time you take each day to plan will make a major difference in your weight loss success.
