Take It Off And Keep It Off By Following These Weight Loss Tips

You may have already tried to lose weight dozens of times. You may have found something you liked, but you couldn’t stick with it. Maybe you’ve even tried extreme dieting, fasting and intense exercise regimes. Your best weight-loss and fitness plan will not be the same as anyone else’s. The tips below can help you find methods that will work for you.

Instead of talking on the phone, get a workout done! Rather than staying seated, walk around while you chat. You don’t need to perform calisthenic exercises. Attending to household chores, or simply pacing, adds up to the burning of extra calories.

It is common knowledge that drinking plenty of water will help with weight loss. What is less well known is that ice cold water speeds up the body’s metabolism even more. Consuming water that is very cold makes your body work to increase the water’s temperature, raising your metabolism in the process.

French Fries

Surely everyone loves french fries! They can be a problem for anyone trying to lose weight. Try baking your french fries to continue with your weight loss. Cut your potatoes into half inch pieces, toss with pepper, salt, and about one tablespoon of canola oil; bake in an oven for about 30 minutes at 400 degrees. Toss with rosemary, if you desire. Turn them over and bake for another 10 minutes. These delicious fries are lower in fat and calories and taste as good as deep fried potatoes. This recipe was taken from Laurel’s Kitchen Cookbook.

Whole grains are an important part of a healthy weight loss program. You may wish to consult a dietitian to explore learning about different kinds of whole grains. Or you may choose to conduct your own research, at the library or online. Do not buy food products that have the words enriched or refined on the labels. It is quite popular for food processing companies to add whole grains in processed food products. Your mission is to find the products taste good to you and that fit into your lifestyle.

If the first exercise and diet plan is not working as quickly as you had hoped, do not allow yourself to become discouraged. It may take some time to fine-tune your regimen. Instead of giving up, try tweaking your plan to make it work better for you. Think about your goals realistically. It’s not realistic to lose 10 pounds in a few days. So why make that your goal when it is so obviously unattainable? Make it a goal to lose about 2 pounds a week. Stick to your goal!
