My Tips for HEALTHY Weight Loss

Tip 1: How Much weight do you want to lose? Decide now - Most people start their weight loss journey by claiming to be xyz Pounds overweight. Its not a healthy way to project or aim for weight loss. Calculate your desired weight for your height(easily done online) and set a healthy weight loss target. Often half the battle is won by setting realistic goals.


Tip 2: Manage you time - 

This is important and is often overlooked. Which part of your day will be dedicated to exercise? Set up a realistic time frame to do this. When will you grocery shop? When you will do the cooking? set these all up within your normal everyday routine. You don't want your days and routine rushed and unplanned, that will get you nowhere and you won't be able to sustain your weight loss efforts.

Tip 3: Stock your kitchen.  

Stock things like with fruits, vegetables, healthy meats, grains, cereals, spices, and flavorings you like. Use healthy cooking! Cook vegetables for the week, Try to use low-fat cooking, many great recipes are online, just Google healthy recipes. To understand how best you can stock your kitchen with healthy and delicious ingredients, plan your meals for the week and shop for those items.

Tip 4: Eat healthy homecooked meals -  

Whether it's you who's cooking, a family member, every one has to practice healthy cooking methods, and use healthy ingredients. Any person who's lost weight the healthy way, will tell you how healthy homecooked meals were the reason it worked. Use healthy lean meats (lamb, chicken etc), Use less oil, low salt, fresh produce and fruits. Without these, you will see little results.

Tip 5: A healthy weight loss program is not complete without a good exercise routine. 

Weight training mixed with cardio is a great way to lose weight. Any workout that you are able to do will help you. If you are physically able, stress on muscle tone and increased heart rate (cardio). This will help you lose weight and keep it off. It doesn't matter if you work out at home, or go to a gym, just do it - the results you will see are well worth it.

Tip 6: Snacking habits, these are probably one of the most important things to change. 

Choose healthy snacks, celery, carrot sticks, low fat cheeses, lowfat yogurts, fruits, and juices are some examples. Set those French fries aside, get rid of the soda and sugary drinks. Ban those unhealthy deep fried foods, cakes, candies and sugary snacks, remove them from the home! Explore the healthy snack world! Go online, you will find tons appetisers, snacks, meal accompaniments, even movie going and Party snacks that'll satisfy every craving.

Tip 7: Have ACTIVE Hobbies! Just 30 to 60 minutes of physical activity per day isn't sufficient. 

And moving from bed to chair, to couch, to dining table, and back to bed is not a healthy way to live. Try a Wii or motion sensor type gaming console that lets you enjoy active fun games with friends and family. 

Plan weekend trips, dance, play sports, the list is endless. Get out of the rut you are in, and you'll have fun as well as losing  these things and you will lose weight.

Happy Weight Loss Everyone.
