Lose Weight

When it comes to diet and weight loss, there is so much confusion and mis-information out there. When you think about it, it is not wonder that we, as a society, are confused.

We treasure slim, thin, skinny and yet, we dole out mountains of processed snack, junk and fast foods.  We sit around and watch television instead of getting up and walking to the park or grocery store.

Isn’t it crazy that every single family get together, every holiday, every celebration is centered on food and drink, consumed to the point of gluttony!

So, when we start to become unhappy with the way we look (no one associates their illness or sluggishness with food), we start cutting calories.  Every New Year the diet industry pulls out all the advertising plugs, because every New Year we resolve to lose all the weight we put on the years before.

Diet pills, replacement shakes, artificial sweeteners, surgeries, magazines and fad diets.  The problem is, these things all make our problem worse.  We may lose weight quickly at first but we lose muscle at the same time and then gain back all fat, or gain back any weight lost really quickly.

As someone who yo-yo dieted for years, and then finally had success when I ditched the diet, I can say that I have got a solid system for losing and keeping off weight.

You might be surprised by my list below. Yet these really are my 14 proven ways to lose weight for good:

  1. Eat breakfast
  2. Eat all day long
  3. Drink more water
  4. Eat at home
  5. Eat whole foods
  6. Reduce stress
  7. Get a good night’s sleep
  8. Get moving
  9. Keep a journal
  10. Eat some good, high quality protein
  11. Take a vitamin supplement
  12. Eat more vegetables
  13. Give up the “c”‘s (cake, cookies, candies, chips)
  14. Do a kitchen makeover and get the unhealthy foods that tempt you out of your house.

You will see that my steps do not involve fad dieting, diet pills, or replacement shakes. There is no mention of calories or special recipes. These steps are really just about healthy eating and following a healthy lifestyle. I have seriously been able to lose excess weight and keep it off so that I have maintained my natural weight for years now,  by just living a healthy lifestyle. This really works- better than any crazy diet!

To eat a healthy diet simply eat plenty of:

  • Fruits and vegetables
  • Whole grains
  • Small amounts of high quality protein
  • Small amounts of healthy fat (coconut oil, avocado)

You will lose weight if you eat this way every day, and the best thing is, you won’t feel deprived or restricted and there is no calorie counting involved. Seems too easy, right?
