Looking for a healthy weight loss guide or an easy way to lose weight?
Well, sorry, but nothing much will change unless you decide that you want to become healthier and slimmer. Having made that decision, you then need to take full responsibility for how you achieve this. Out with excuses!
I think that there is an easy way to lose weight once you have truly made the decision to do so.
Choose fresh foods high in nutrients from those noted in the previous pages. If you are cooking them, choose steaming or boiling/simmering over frying.
Avoid trans fats and added sugars. Go easy on fruit as all fruits contain fructose, which can be addictive – and very fattening.
Exercise daily. Walking is probably best but, if you are already fit, you may benefit from more intensive workouts and weight bearing activities (check with your doctor).
Develop a positive attitude to your chosen new lifestyle; remind yourself that you are not being deprived of indulgences but, instead, are enjoying new taste sensations that will make you feel ‘trim, taut and terrific’.
Unrelenting stress will stack on fat, did you know that? Develop quick strategies to reduce daily stressors (deep breathing, sit in the sun for ten minutes and dream, go for a walk in the park, bush, beach and connect with nature, do some yoga stretches or tai chi moves, chat with a friend, dance around the office...).
Good wishes! Do let us all know how you get on – and draw on support from others negotiating the same journey.
