To keep the weight off once you lost it, you have to have healthy eating habits and continue exercising frequently. Maybe you won’t need to exercise as much as you used to while losing weight. Maybe you can afford to indulge your craving more often. But one thing is certain. If you want to keep the weight off forever you can’t go back to your old lifestyle.
That is why I am against fad diets. They only help you lose weight without teaching you the skills required to keep the weight off once you finish dieting. This leads to the all too common yo-yo dieting effect. Losing weight and gaining it back only adds to your stress and makes it even more difficult to lose weight in the future.
Get a good healthy diet that will teach you all the healthy eating habits you need to keep the weight off forever. It might take a little longer to lose weight but you are guaranteed to enjoy your new smoking hot body for a lot longer. What is the point of losing lots of weight, if you can’t enjoy the results for a couple of years at least, if not for a lifetime.
Weight maintenance is all about having a healthy lifestyle. This implies change and a lot of effort. I won’t lie to you, it isn’t something easy to do. But the benefits are tremendous: better health, more energy, and a body you can flaunt on the beach. All because you took the time and invested the energy required to lose weight properly. Not just losing weight, but also gaining the lifestyle needed for permanent weight loss.
