Losing it: The safest way to lose weight

There are very few if any shortcuts in life and the same goes with shedding excess weight.

There isn’t a pill out there that will magically make us fit and healthy over night but if you stick with the following guidelines you’ll achieve long term, sustainable and healthy weight loss.

Track it: Keep a food diary. It always helps to be aware of your eating habits when you’re starting a new diet.

Portion: Weight gain is often a direct result of over eating. Lower your portion size and you might just see immediate results!

Count calories: Monitoring the total number of calories consumed will also allow you to determine if you’re eating too little or too much.

Balance: Make sure you are eating a well balanced diet.

Plan: A meal plan is the easiest way to ensure you are eating the correct amount of calories. Stock your house and refrigerator will healthy foods that you can cook with and snack on.

Sweat: Exercise at least 5 times a week for 30 to 45 minutes.
Exercise is great for weight loss, but remember it is only a part of the weight loss process. Exercise is key to maintaining a healthy body.

Using a machine like the treadmill and elliptical is a great way to track the total number of calories burned but these aren’t always accurate!

Lift: Weight training should be a part of your exercise routine, at least two times a week.

Scales: Don’t weigh yourself too often! The body can fluctuate day to day but it is important to monitor your weight and this should be done no more than once a week.

Focus on the end goal of living a healthy, balanced lifestyle and changing negative habits.

If you feel you have followed the above rules and can’t budge the weight you should seek the assistance of a professional.
