Your Healthy Weight Loss Plan
Set A Goal
One of the first things that you’ll do when you decide to lose weight is to set a goal weight for your weight loss plan. For most, that goal will be your “ideal weight”, but for many, that ‘ideal weight’ may be exactly the wrong weight for them to be aiming for.
The Body’s Confusion
Years of dieting or being overweight have the physiological effect of moving the body’s concept of the ideal weight from what is truly ideal. The “set point” is the weight at which your body naturally feels most comfortable.
If you’ve been overweight for a very long time, or if you’ve consistently ‘yo-yoed’, your body may respond to your initial weight loss plan by lowering its metabolism because it believes that you are starving to death. This slowing leads to discouraging plateaus that often knock people off their diets entirely, and lead to regaining all or part of the lost weight.
Choose your exercise routine you want to do, whether it is just walking, riding your bike or using a treadmill. Using exercise equipment can strengthen and build muscles which will help you burn the fat off more quickly. Building muscle is the key!
Don’t deprive yourself of nutritious food. That will not do you good in the long run.
I suggest a healthy way of eating for healthy weight loss. Re train yourself to a better way of eating, so that you don’t fall off the eating plan as soon as you lose a few pounds.
By doing this, your weight loss will be more permanent with less stress about depriving your self of foods you would eat on a regular basis.
