Health & Motivation

Obesity is one of the major problems threatening our health today. Obesity is well known for its ability to induce heart afflictions, hypertension, high cholesterol levels, lack of energy and the list goes on. How to lose fat isn’t a big mystery as some might think. It’s actually and easy, fun thing to do. All you really need is determination (this is crucial in the beginning because as you go on, what you now consider hard work and exercise will become like a second nature to you, and you will find it harder to give up. Just find a good balanced quick weight loss diet, and a workout plan.

The key to losing fat is determination

Here are some simple and easy ways to increase your morale and motivate you to keep to your fat loss diet and exercise plan. Most people give up on dieting or exercising because the desired results aren’t appearing on time, or their desired weight seems too far away- a simple fix is just to set short term goals.

See how much you can lose in one week. Then try to match or beat that each week until you reach your desired weight. Adopt a reward system: each week you lose more than you goal, go on a shopping spree, buy some nice lingerie, or a new pair of jeans, a dress or a skirt, whatever you want (except food- that’s expressly off limits) and makes you happy, because today YOU deserve it. But the simplest way to motivate yourself is just by reaching your goal each day.

Think about how you want to look at the end of your fat loss diet. Then go out and buy a piece of clothing you love (jeans or dress preferably) and will do anything to fit into. Then when you get home put it up somewhere near your bed so you can see it every day when you get up, and when you see it just think that you’re almost there, you’re almost in the body you deserve.

Lose fat using a good healthy diet

You can have all the determination in the world but without a good diet, it’s pretty much worthless. Diet’s come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but they all work on the same basic principle as this one, keep you caloric intake lower than your caloric usage. The best way to achieve this is to eat foods that are low in calories but high in other nutrients like proteins, vitamins, calcium etc, for example: it’s best if you eat fish, beef and poultry.

Eliminate fat meat such as pork all together. Eat as many vegetables as you can(raw, steamed, or in salads with no dressing) and of course fruit (an important source of energy; raw or dried but never from compotes or cans) also the occasional egg is permitted( boiled not fried) especially at breakfast with tea (for losing weight green and black teas are the best choices). As a side note try to eat often but in small quantities. The best thing you can do is to find diets that work best for you.

Lose fat by exercising

Exercising is vital to the success of your diet. Without a good exercise plan your quest to lose fat will take much longer to fulfil. As a basic exercise plan you can always go jogging: it’s easy, fun and will give you energy for the whole day if done in the morning. Just go for a 15 minute walk at first and as you go try alternating walking with running (so you can build some basic stamina).

In 2 weeks at most you will be ready to run the whole 15 minutes without a problem. When 15 minutes seems too easy either increase the intensity of your runs or the length. The only thing left is to never lose sight of your goal and never give up. Good luck.
