I have gained and lost the same ten pounds so many times over and over again my cellulite must have déjà vu.~Jane Wagner
It’s no secret that keeping the lost weight off is where the good weight loss diets distinguish themselves from the crappy weight loss diets. Everybody can eventually lose weight, but few manage to keep it off for forever. And in that lies a true art.
Going on and off a diet is no way of living. Starving yourself one month and stuffing your face the other month is a truly unhealthy lifestyle that will damage your body. The only way to lose weight is to do it as fast as you can do it in a healthy way and after go in a weight loss maintenance mode.
Keeping the lost weight off is all about correlating your lifestyle to your eating habits. Or vice versa. If you have a sedentary life, like a couch potato does, you have to reduce your food intake without letting hunger rule your days. If you find that impossible to do, then you will have to become more active. Start exercising, get involved in the local community. A great way to get plenty of exercise and to help your local community is by helping the little league, or starting a repair and improve the neighborhood program.
The more active you are during the day the more food you can eat without worrying about gaining weight. Of course you still have to be careful not to overeat, or eat more calories than you burn during the whole day.
Simply by adaption your lifestyle to your new hot body will insure its survival. If you don’t do it you will get fat again. I am sure you don’t want that. The kind of lifestyle you have to have to keep weight off after losing weight is right smack in the middle between your diet and your pre-dieting lifestyle. This means that it isn’t as restrictive as your diet but it isn’t as permissive as your old lifestyle used to be. It’s a little bit of both.
