We’ve all had that moment of stepping onto the bathroom scale, only to recoil in surprise. Perhaps there was a little too much eating over the holiday season after all. The only question now is how to get rid of the extra weight. But losing weight is a terrible task that will certainly involve starving, right?
Weight loss is perhaps one of the most focused on challenges, and somehow also a prospect that breeds the most misinformation. Hundreds of weight loss gurus offer their services online, most looking for followers, and many even demanding upfront payment. The good news is that the vast majority of so called gurus are drastically overcomplicating the situation.
All weight loss really needs is a basic understanding of nutrition, a bit of time, and discipline. It’s just like playing basketball. At first you don’t score at all, then you can’t stop scoring.
Change Your Diet
Yes, of course weight loss is about changing your diet. But no, it certainly doesn’t mean that you now have to starve yourself in order to drop weight. But you certainly should be prepared to alter what you consider a normal eating schedule.
Milk, bread, and junk food should be struck off your list completely. It is generally foods like milk and bread, considered to be staples by many, which are the main culprits as far as weight gain are concerned. It need not even be said that junk food is unacceptable, since the vast majority are already aware of this. Foods that are widely acceptable are fruits, vegetables, and unprocessed meats. In moderation, of course.
While you start thinking about how to rearrange your fridge, perhaps consider a bit of real money Pokies online.
Do you have one and a half sugars in your coffee or tea? Reduce that to half a sugar. It’s as easy as that, and in a few days you likely won’t even notice the difference. Try it, and be amazed that you were having far more sugar than you really needed.
Don’t Buy Problematic Foods
It should be obvious, but it never hurts to say it anyway; don’t put foods in your fridge that are going to tempt you. Since the process of weight loss is going to take a month or two, don’t stock up on any food items that you know are going to ruin your efforts.
It is only natural to feel peckish, but keep a bag of apples available, rather than diet destroying junk food. An apple will hardly impact your diet, while a bag of potato chips will destroy your efforts in an instant.
Drink Lots Of Water
Lastly, of course, get some exercise. You don’t need long, body destroying runs or to complete a boxing match, just a fast walk every second day will do. Remember, it is going to take time to lose weight, so choose an exercise that you can do repeatedly, and won’t reduce you to gasping tears.
