People often start strong with their weight loss plans. You give up your favorite foods, you slog out at the gym every day, but eventually you give up because you aren’t seeing any results. I understand how frustrating that can be. You need patience and professional guidance. Follow these steps to lose weight safely (see original post):
1. Set realistic goals.
2. Plan wisely.
3. Stick to the plan.
Let’s start with how to set realistic goals when trying to lose weight.
The best way to set goals in your weight loss plan is by taking a hard and honest look at yourself, your capabilities, and of course, your weight.
Some of the questions you might consider asking yourself are:
* Are you sure you can dedicate at least an hour every day, six days a week, to workout physically at your home, office, or gym?
If you can’t start with an hour a day, start with at least 30 minutes in the morning, or evening. You can even break up the 30-minutes period into two 15-minutes slot where you physically push yourself to give yourself a good workout. However, you need professional guidance for such aggressive workouts.
* Are you physically capable?
If you’re overweight, you can still hit the gym, or use equipment at home/office for a daily workout. But if you’re obese, it’s best to start with brisk walking, around 15 minutes a day and gradually increase the duration. Once your weight comes down to a safe limit, you can try more vigorous workouts to lose weight.
* Will your lifestyle permit your weight loss diet plan?
Most people have irregular eating hours because they tend to work through their lunch hours, or for any other reason. If you’re one of them, it’s best to talk over your diet plan with a professional to understand what you can try to make your weight loss plan work.
* And finally, how is your body going to behave with your chosen weight loss plan?
To ensure your body will lose weight at all, you need a balanced diet and supporting workout routines. Aim to lose a pound per week in the beginning. If you’re unable to see such results, you need expert advice on your diet and workout plans.
