I was walking to the park when a person stopped me and asked me what is the best method to lose weight. I replied that there is only one legitimate and true way to lose weight and keep it off forever. You have to change your lifestyle, other methods are only temporally.
So I gave him the best method to lose weight:
Set your goals
Do small changes
Don’t ever think of dropping your weight loss regiment, no matter how difficult life gets
Get rid of all the extra calories that your body does not need, such as junk food, cookies, chocolate, ice cream candy, added sugars, sodas, flavored water, refined flour, deep fried food (French fries, etc.), beers, drinks and others
Cut down your meat intake and replace it for vegetables and fruits.
Walk everywhere; use the stairs instead of the elevator. In other words, be active.
Pay attention to the reason why you eat. Are you eating because you are hungry or because you are under stress, a mental or emotional stage?
Don’t overeat. Eat small, healthy snacks between your main plates and set up an eating schedule.
Eat grains for breakfast instead of high fat foods, such as fried eggs, bacon and sausage.
The most important one of all: do all these steps for life. Nothing will help you in the short term. It is like taking all the contaminated water from a lake when the creek still running contaminated water back into the lake. If you want to clean the lake, you need to approach it from the source. If you don’t take all these steps seriously, sorry but you are not ready to lose weight. Other approaches will only lead you to failure in the long term.
I wished him the best and I continued with my walk...
I thought about all my clients and understood that such steps are not easy to follow. However, I’m blessed by having clients that are supportive to each other and they are fighting for what they want and I know they won’t stop until they achieve the body and health they desire.
