Finally, you have decided to start trimming down your excess fats. Congratulations! All you have to do now is to analyze whether you are fully ready to commit into this decision because quitting in the middle of your weight loss journey is never the right thing to do.
Like any other courses or subjects in school, everything here on earth lies on some fundamental principles which will guide you throughout the entire duration of the plan. In losing weight, it is not the details that matters but it is the principle that counts.
One of the principles of weight lose is about balance. In almost all of the diets or weight loss programs available out there, balance should be maintained. In whatever you eat, what you do for a physical activity, balance should be the focus. In the food you eat, for example, never focus on vegetable only, try to incorporate some of the low calorie meat or fish products so that balance is achieved in terms of nutrients and minerals the body absorbs. Weight loss program is not balanced if you don’t incorporate a healthy diet. Exercise, with no proper and healthy diet leads you to another gain weight afterwards. This is because you will eat more calories than the body is able to burn even if you do physical activities.
Another principle is the calorie intake timing. Did you know that every time you skip breakfast, you increase your chances of gaining weight? This is because when you have not eaten your breakfast, there is a high chance for you to feed your body with more calories in the remaining meals, later in the afternoon.
So many calories in the afternoon or at night will just be deposited as fat and will not be burnt by the body. Most of the chores or the activities are rampant in the morning, so it is safe to eat a full breakfast since the body will be capable of burning all the foods consumed during breakfast. Another good timing is eating smaller meals frequently of about five to six times a day. With the proper nutrient timing you will not be mistaken on how much and how often you will take food. This is a secret to a healthy body.
Self monitoring is another principle of weight loss. Like a business, constant monitoring of sales is needed for you to reach the target sales whether monthly or quarterly. For food intake and exercise done, record it so that you will have a basis of the foods you eat and the exercise you perform. Also, don’t forget to jot down your body weight weekly so that you know when you are losing weight or not. Monitoring will be a powerful tool which will keep you on track of your achievements in your losing weight goal.
Being consistent is another principle. Consistency and order will make you lose weight. Why? This is because when you consistently do your plans in losing weight, then you will also be consistent in your trimming down of fats. Continue what you do in your plans and you will have a greater chance of improving your overall health in the long term.
The most important principle for me is motivation. In every goal, if you lack motivation, success will not be given to you. be motivated in every diet you eat and in every exercise you do and you will surely be awarded a healthy and fit body.
