10 Dieting Tips to Waste That Weight! by
1. The first step you should take is to
adopt healthier eating habits. Not only
will you gain more food volume this way
but you can use natural low calorie seasonings
such as onions to improve the taste. This
is proven for long term health and fat loss
while removing the strain of dieting itself.
2. When preparing meat, always trim the
fat off of it. Or if it is something like
chicken, remove the skin. If that is too
bland chop it up and add it to something
3. Find someone to 'report' to. People
tend to be more dedicated when they know
after a week or two they need to check in
with someone. Find someone to walk with
for example, a close friend or even a diet
buddy. Share your goals! Trying to do things
on your own can sometimes be a lot harder.
4. Write down what you eat and stick with
it. You'd be surprised at how many extra
things you might be eating if you don't
write your menu down. Either plan ahead
with your food intake or start keeping a
food journal just to see!
5. If you must fry things, use a non-fat
cooking spray. This will save you many calories
versus cooking with oil. For example, one
tablespoon of cooking oil contains 120 calories!
Whereas a 2.4 second spray of PAM contains
only 16 calories.
6. Don't ever give up! Never view yourself
as a failure. The only time you fail is
when/if you quit. It may take more research
or a different approach but it 'will' happen.
Statistics show that most people do not
succeed their first time trying. Nothing
can take the place of persistence! Not intelligence,
not talent, nothing! Everything else is
7. Remember that diet and exercise are
a 50/50 ratio. If one or the other is missing
you will be less likely to succeed! You
can exercise until you pass out but if you
are taking in too many calories you won't
see dramatic changes in your appearance.
And if you don't exercise your body will
more likely use muscle for energy rather
than fat. Aerobic exercise burns fat! Starvation
eats up muscle!
8. Concentrate on fat loss, not weight
loss. Your appearance is what counts, not
how much you weigh. Since muscle is heavier
than fat you might be surprised! And remember,
muscle burns calories! So eat regularly
and don't skip meals. If you wait more than
4 hours your metabolism starts to slow down.
9. Women tend to gain fat around the glutes
and thighs. Men gain it on their stomach
and around the waist. The reason is due
to a lack of circulation in those areas.
Fat is not taken into the bloodstream as
efficiently as other areas. That is why
besides a long term fat loss program, fat
burning agents such as ephedrine help. Blood
thinning agents such as aspirin also help.
But make sure to read the labels, instructions
and warnings before using any supplement!
10. The real key to losing weight is consistency.
If you start missing meals or skipping workouts
your progress will slow down to the point
of discouragement. How bad do you want it?
Find a good program and stick with it. Remember,
you get out of it what you put into it!
