If you are interested in losing weight, whether a little or a lot, I have some very helpful tips on losing weight.
What I may not have are tips on losing weight that are 100% unique to you. The truth is that most people already know what they have to do to lose weight… they just don't want to.
Many of us view weight loss as a hard and long process. Because of this, we don't even try.
What we will do, in many cases, is continue to search for that "simple" method that we just know has to exist.
If you have done this, don't beat yourself up, many of us have done it too. If you don't believe me, just look to the multi million dollar a year weight loss industry.
From pills to gadgets it seems like they are always coming out with something "new" to help us win the battle of the bulge.
If no one was buying these things, there wouldn't be an industry so you know it's not just you.
So, are there things that might be able to (really) make the weight loss a little faster and / or a little easier? Yes, there are.
These things can be of help but do yourself a favor and make sure you fully understand and accept the fact that these are only tools that can help a sound plan, they won't do it all for you with no changes on your part.
Before you start off on any type of diet and exercise plans you should talk to your doctor first.
If you aren't healthy enough or you have some limitations, you need to know about it before you start and not after you've injured yourself.
The more overweight and out of shape you are, the more you will have to allow your body time to ease into your workouts.
If you try to do too much too soon you are likely to cause injuries that will only slow you down more in the long run.
You don't want to strain yourself to the point where you can't do anything else for a few weeks.
If you do, it will be just like starting all over again… and who wants that?
Also, understand that there can be what I like to call an "exercise hump".
This is the first weeks where you feel horrible, you are working hard but you aren't seeing any results.
This is the time when many people give up. But, if you can get past the hump to the point where it isn't as hard and you can actually start seeing some results, you will be much more likely to be able to stay with it for the long term and really achieve all your weight loss goals.
And, if you combine a reasonable, healthy eating plan with a reasonable and healthy workout plan and possibly (only with your doctors approval) a supplement that can help you speed up the process, you can get over this hump more quickly than you could without all of these components.
So, my best tips on losing weight is to do everything that you can to speed up the time it takes you to get over the hump. The sooner you see results the sooner you will be hooked.
