Many people spend money, time, and effort looking for the simplest and quickest method to lose weight. If you are like so many others you will have realised by now from past efforts that easy weight loss is just a dream and not a reality.
Yet again and again people spend their hard earned money in this quest, which often leads to disappointment, and a lot of people refuse to learn from their mistakes
People will repeatedly purchase weight loss products which promise them so much but in most cases deliver very little. Even repeated failures at losing weight will not stop people from going down the same road. Perhaps it's time to have a rethink.
Clearly if something is not getting you the weight loss results that you want, then it is time to do something different, and stop pinning your hopes on some easy weight loss method which promises 'too good to be true' results.
The truth of the matter is that easy weight loss is fiction. Losing weight can be difficult but if done the right way, anyone can do it. Everybody knows that the 2 staples of weight loss are diet and exercise. I am not talking about the term diet in its conventional form, where it reflects a temporary method towards weight loss.
The reality of it is that whether you consume 2200 healthy calories a day or consume 5000 unhealthy calories a day, you are still on a diet. One diet is good for you the other diet is not so good.
Either way you need to check which type of diet you are currently on. You don't need to be a nutritional genius to get the answer to this question. You already know which part of your diet is healthy and which part is not.
Sorting out your diet is the first step if you want to lose weight successfully. Remove as much junk food from your diet as you can, and in its place add healthier foods such as fruit, fish, cereals, white meat, and vegetables. Do not think that you need to cut calories drastically, unless you know that you are consuming far too many.
Many modern diets recommend making large decreases in calories, however this is often a mistake because starvation mode could set in which will slow down your ability to burn calories. Never cut your calories by more than 25%.
The next step is going to be physical activity (exercise). Unfortunately this step is the one that people who want to lose weight do not really look forward to.
The problem is many people are under the impression that they have to train like gladiators. People read exercise routines and think 'Hell I can't do that' and that is not a great way to get into exercise.
Just because someone has written an exercise routine that they say you should do, doesn't mean that you should do it. You need to find your own levels as to what you can do. Adapt an exercise routine to suit you. People that have good levels of fitness did not get them overnight.
It took time to build up their fitness levels. Where you are currently as in regards to fitness is not important. Do not compare yourself to anyone else, do what is going to stretch you and as long as you stick to that you won't go far wrong.
Keep your levels of exercise progressive, meaning that you do a bit more each time you exercise. Over time these little extra additions will add up to a very big addition.
Ignore what anyone else is doing or how well they are doing, as long as you keep making improvements, even small ones, you are on the right track to reaching your weight loss goals.
The principles of weight loss are not rocket science; the difficult part is to keep doing the bits you need to do over and over again. Easy weight loss is not about taking dubious supplements or participating in the latest diet craze. Doing it the right way may take some time but doing it the right way is the only real easy weight loss method.
