3 ways to lose excess weight

Ok, here’s a little experiment to try. In a random survey of people you know today, ask them two questions.

1. How do you feel about your body?
2. What about your weight? Do you want to lose, gain or maintain your current weight?

Around 4 out of 5 will complain about how much more they weigh than the ideal body weight for their age and height. While others will talk about the lumps they want to get rid of. Most people will also want to lose the excess weight they think they are carrying. These will include people who you think are in the ideal weight category or are staying thin. The obsession with losing weight seems to be a universal problem in the modern world.

There are basically 3 ways to lose excess weight. One is the strict control of the diet. Watching every calorie you consume will automatically translate into weight loss. When you consume fewer calories than you normally burn, you will naturally lose weight.

Changing what you eat can also contribute to weight loss. Eating more protein and less processed carbohydrates, more fresh produce and less sugar will help you in your weight loss process. It’s both Math and Biology at work here. So eat healthy and cut calories by about 500 calories from your normal dietary requirement and you’ll be well on your way to weight loss.

This simple change will work for those who only have about 5-10 pounds of excess weight to lose. However, if you are much more overweight, you will need not only clean eating habits, strict dietary control and something else. Junk and processed food must be completely eliminated from the equation if you are looking for a permanent way to lose weight.

Another way to lose weight is to lead a more active lifestyle. If you are a couch potato, simply adding a morning walk will help you shed excess fat and pounds. If you already walk, add a half hour of jogging or running to your schedule, increase the speed of your walk, or include cardio or strength training. Just move more. If you find yourself sitting for more than half an hour, get up and walk over to the water cooler for a glass of water. That brings us to hydration. Drink plenty of water to keep your metabolism running at its best.

Besides diet, cleaner eating, and exercise, is there a good way to lose weight? No. But you should be evaluated by a health professional to find out if you have any health problems that are preventing you from doing your best weight loss efforts. A proper evaluation should reveal any problems. But don’t blame him for your lack of weight loss progress.

Get tips from diet experts on a diet that’s right for your body type. Hire a professional to help you in the gym and adapt the type of activities suitable for you to lose weight.

A simple assessment by professionals of your eating/exercise habits will reveal any gaps. If you’re consuming 3 cups of ice cream while staying within your calorie limit, you may not be losing weight yet because those calories are coming from junk food.

You need to eat more natural and fresh foods, as these not only provide vital nutrients, but also require calories to digest. So, in effect, you’re actually burning even more. Sugary things don’t take any effort from your body to digest.

You may also be underestimating your calorie intake. So do it the right way by getting professional help.
