People tend to get very excited when they begin their initial weight loss regime. However, with time, they get frustrated when they see no results. They feel sad and helpless, not knowing what exactly to do. Then there are others who might have lost weight at some point, but now have gained it back. Some people struggle with losing weight all their lives without seeing any real success with it. Usually, in their case the weight loss is so slow that they give up.
However, things do not have to be so sad and frustrating for you. Here you can get some guidance, which will help you achieve your goal and keep you from getting frustrated.
The fact is that it is possible to lose weight; you do not have to remain fat for all your life. However, the only condition is that you need to be prepared to do what I tell you and here it is.
You might have seen people losing weight all the time and that might have actually frustrated you even more. You can learn a few things from these people.
One is that they perform some type of aerobic exercise at least 5 days every week. They do not shirk away from exercise. They know the importance of exercise to weight loss as well as it maintenance and they keep to it.
This regular exercise is for a minimum of half an hour to 90 minutes, with an average of 45 minutes in a day. This burns several calories besides elevating the basal metabolic rate of their body.
The second thing they do is they incorporate some kind of weight training at least 2 days in a week. This also affects the basal metabolic rate as well as tones up their muscles. People who undertake weight training are more successful at sustaining their weight loss than those who do not include it.
Thirdly, their eating habits are healthy. It is not possible to maintain a healthy weight if you do not support your exercise regime with healthy diet. While exercise burns off the energy stored in the form of fat, you need energy to exercise. Therefore, you need to supply your body with the right kind of food that is healthy and not junk and that adds nutrition to your body without adding fat.
Thus, a combination of the right weight loss plan and healthy food will see you on your way to weight loss, a sustained one.
