Great Ways to Lose Weight and Keep it Off

I read a great article recently called “20 Little Ways to Drop the Pounds and Keep Them Off” by Joe Mullich from the Health Magazine. Here is the link if you are interested in reading it:

Weight gain has been one of the major concerns of our society. We gain weight when we consume more than we can burn. This statement is correct however there are other causes of weight gain due to illnesses. I am going to explain several ways to help you eat healthy and exercise right. If your weight gain is caused by other illnesses, complications, you should consult a physician.

Lose Weight

Everybody’s life style is different. Your body may also react to certain things differently. Someone can have a few slices of pizza and get away with it, however you may end up gaining weight. For this reason the first thing you need to do is to evaluate yourself. What is your tolerance level? Do you eat healthy food? Do you exercise? If you drink a lot of soda then the first think you should do is to replace soda with water. Cans and bottles are labeled to show you what your calorie intake would be. By replacing one can of soda with water per day you will save about 140 calories. If you have read the article I mentioned above by Joe Mullich, you know that we all gain 1-2 pounds per year regardless. Consuming 140 calories less per day because you have replaced it with water, you will reverse this weight gain. If you are a coffee drinker, think about how you have your coffee everyday? Do you like it plain or with cream and sugar? Have it black. May be hard at first but you will soon get used to it. If you must add something then use skimmed milk. Also avoid the three major whites. These are sugar, salt and flour. You should eat several times throught out the day without starving yourself. Have a good breakfast and eat light at night. A single banana is a great source of energy. I highly recommend it after a workout instead of consuming an energy drink or an energy bar.

Apart from eating right, you should exercise to maximize your weight and fat loss. As I have mentioned before you should listen to your body, evaluate yourself and setup your goals. Once you have this, check out the website of Cinderhill Gym. They have a good online routine creator that customizes a fitness program for you based on your availablity and goals.

Ways to Lose Weight

Remember to change your exercise routine often. If you like jogging, do not jog everyday. Alternate your exercises. The human body can adjust to circumstances, so by repeating the same exercises you will not be gaining anything. Switch your days, exercises, etc. Do not use the elevator all the time. Use the stairs. In your first weeks, you will see very good results because you are starting something new. But remember that your body will soon get used to it and when it does it will shut itself off. This means you will stop losing the weight even though you are exercising.

I hope you will find this article handy. Have fun and just remember to switch things around.
