Dieting Tips for Weight Loss

  1. 1. ==== ====For Great Weigh Loss Tips, Check This Out:www.dietingtipsforweightloss.com==== ====You might say that one of the simplest dieting tips is that losing weight is easy. But maybe youhave heard this before: its keeping the weight off that is the hard part. Pretty much anyone candrop a few pounds without much real effort. But to lose a few pounds of genuine fat and keep ahealthier, slimmer figure can prove more of a challenge. This article aims to provide some key tipsfor losing the pounds and then keeping weight off -- for good.No dieting tips would be responsible if they did not include the recommendation that beforemaking any kind of major lifestyle change -- and starting a dieting and fitness regime is counted assuch -- you should always consult with your medical adviser and see what they say about yourchoice of weight loss strategy. There a few good reasons why you should do this whether you areadult dieter, or a the responsible parent of an overweight child who wants to lose some weight.Your doctor will be able to confirm that there should be no physical or health reasons why youshould not make the changes you plan, and also s/he should be able to give you an indication ofhealthy and wise weight loss goals to set yourself.Long term weight loss is only sensible if it is part of a general plan to improve your health and well-being. If you want to lose weight sensibly and healthily and keep the pounds off there is just noway of getting around tipping you off that youll not only need to overhaul your diet but alsoincrease your activity. After all there is little point in transforming yourself from being unhealthyand overweight to unhealthy and a bit slimmer! So adding some exercise into the weight lossprogram is a must. If this seems a little off-putting, take comfort n the fact that we are not talkingabout heavy-duty, hard core training or serious sports activity. Even introducing a bit of regularwalking into your daily routine will be a step in the right direction (to coin a phrase!) Naturally asyou progress and begin to hit your targets you will most likely feel motivated to do a bit more, andbeing lighter and fitter will be able to do more, too.In fact, not to labor the point, but introducing the exercise element into any new diet and fitnessregime is actually critical. Research by noted authorities, such as the Mayo Clinic, has shown thatstarting to do half an hour or so exercise per day is a key factor in achieving permanent weight-loss. The good news is that even f you break your exercise down into several smaller portionsduring the day -- for example you could do between 3 to 6, ten minute sessions -- it will have thesame positive effect on losing weight. So even making it a regular thing to walk to and from work(or get off the bus or train ten minutes from work/home for the same effect), regularly using thestairs instead of the lift, or getting out at lunchtime for a brisk stroll, will all contribute to keepingthat weight off.Another of the best dieting tips that you might also consider is investing in a good pair of digitalscales. Digital scales are now much more accurate that the old wobbly finger dial type, and if youuse the same scales regularly you will get a fairly accurate snap-shot of your progress. Naturally
  2. 2. you do not want to make weighing yourself become an obsession, but weighing-in a couple oftimes a week can be quite a good idea,. Bear in mind that you will weigh heaviest at the end of theday (most likely, due to food and liquid intake) and lightest in the morning just after waking, due tothe dehydration you will experience overnight. So be sure to weigh yourself in the same place(same floor surface, that is), with the same scales, wearing similar light (or no!) clothes, and at thesame time of day to get the best idea of what is going on.It can also be quite fun, and motivating, if your scales also provide a body fat analysis. Weight andbody-fat monitors are now quite economical to buy. They use a small electric current from anordinary battery to measure body fat (so, note, if you have a pace maker or other electronic healthsupport you should NOT use these scales unless a doctor has categorically said it is OK to do so).The interesting aspect of the body-fat monitor that you may well see a downward trend in fat, evenwhen your weight is not reducing. This is generally a good thing, of course, because it implies youare developing lean muscle through exercising. It can be a reassurance that if you hit a plateauand appear to stop losing weight for a while, as many dieters experience, you will know that this isbecause you are getting leaner, and fitter IF your body-fat percentage is still dropping. Goodmuscle strength is also critical to reducing pain and wear and tear on joints so the benefits ofexercise are multiplied.When it comes to the dieting plan that you adopt there are also some key things to bear in mind ifyou want to avoid losing weight then gaining it again just as quickly. One of the important dietingtips is not to be tempted to skip meals. Dieters are often try skipping breakfast, but this can be areal mistake as it leads to low-blood sugars by mid morning which can give rise to cravings forsugary snacks! A couple of unplanned, small but calorie intense snacks in a day can put paid toany benefit your dieting plan might have offered. So be sure to eat breakfast, and then eat up tosix small meals spaced evenly through the day, rather than larger meals at longer intervals.Smaller meals are easier on the digestion and more readily metabolized. If you should get hungerpangs then be sure to try drinking a glass of still mineral water first. Research has shown thatthirst is often mistaken for hunger and a glass of calorie free water may just satisfy the real needyour body has -- hydration!The small meals strategy makes the food you eat easier for your body to handle. In fact humanbiologists know that digestion is one of the most demanding processes the body undertakes and.In effect digestion is part of the aging process. But it can take a while to get used to smallportions. It is tempting to return for seconds and undo your good intentions. Naturally, if you aregenuinely hungry you may meed to work at the small meals strategy for a while. But a final tip forsuccessful dieting is always to let the first portion go down, by allowing say a good 10 minutesafter finishing it, before considering a second helping. Often this allows the full satisfying effect ofthe first portion to be registered by the stomach where chemical messages are sent to the brain toconfirm that hunger has abated. This way you can re-educate your body and establish newhealthier eating patterns.Ultimately though, all the dieting tips in the world will have little effect without a little will power, andmotivation. You have to want to achieve the weight loss, and it helps to know it will benefit you inso many ways. You also have to accept that permanent weight loss is the result of a combinationof the right diet program, correct portion size along with some regular exercise, all under thewatchful eye of your MD/GP of course!
