10 Essential Tips For Natural And Healthy Weight Loss
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

So, you are losing hope and fitness except those extra pounds on your body. You’re looking for the best ways to lose weight permanently while staying healthy! Don’t worry, you’re in good hands now. I’m here to share you my top ten tips to lose weight healthily and make sure those pounds are gone for good!

Before I start blubbering, I want to emphasize one important thing that I have learnt from my many failures trying to lose weight. There is simply NO such thing as losing 10 lbs of weight in a week while you are on a HEALTHY diet. Now, now, don’t let it disappoint you. I’m only saying it so that you won’t give up when you see oh-not-so-dramatic results in your first week following my tips below. But, what I can guarantee is that you will definitely lose weight gradually but consistently while maintaining your fitness. I’ve tried and succeeded. I have gone from 170 lbs to 112 lbs in nine months! These following tips have helped me achieve my dream body and here’s hoping that they will help you too!

Tip Number 1: ALWAYS look at the calories! When you go grocery shopping or when you pick up something to eat, always look at the calories per serving. Keep track of the calories intake per day. If the calorie intake exceeds those burned, you’ll get excess fat (old story, I know). It’s a good rule of thumb that you should have 1500 to 2000 calories per day. Some people reduce their calorie intake to 900 and trust me, I have tried that way before and it never lasted over a week for me. I got fatigue and even depression while I was on that calories-strip-down diet. Don’t do that if you want to go healthy. But, keeping track of your calories intake is a good way to adjust your diet and lose weight. Take notice of it, but don’t be obsessed with it.

Tip Number 2: Have a BIG bowl of raw VEGIES Salads and a BIG glass of water before each meal! Just put whatever raw vegetables you can think of, of course except those which are very sugary or starchy like potato, into a big bowl. Add a low calorie dressing and there you get it, your appetizer! Yes, you heard it right, no crackers and none of your so delicious dressings! It’s as simple as that! Then have a lot of water before each meal. The purpose is to make you feel satisfied and have a fuller tummy!

Tip Number 3: Eat slowly and eat less! Let’s put it this way. When you eat fast, your stomach is so busy chewing on the food that it doesn’t get time to send signals to the brain to tell you that you’re actually very full! So, eat slowly, give your stomach to process and let yourself know that you’ve had enough. And, reduce your normal amount of meal little by little. See if you can handle it. But for me, after that bowl of salads and water, I can just only eat half of my normal meal and of course, it means weight loss.

Tip Number 4: Eat small meals frequently! If you’re thinking about skipping breakfast or refusing dinner, DON’T. It is bad for your body mechanism and your stomach. Eat less, eat frequently, have more salads and drink more water. Then you’ll be fine.

Tip Number 5: Have apples or oranges for your dessert! It is pretty obvious by now that you just can’t have cheese cake or cookies for your after-dinner dessert. But, also don’t resort to high calorie fruits like bananas. Instead have fruits that can give you a lot of vitamin C and other nutrients like apples or oranges (and their friends, like clementine)! Vitamin C can help you burn fat faster while you’re doing normal activities and it’s a healthy way to lose weight.

Tip Number 6: Say NO to SODA! If you have a habit of having sodas while watching TV or working, it’s time to change it. Sodas are bad your dental and physical health and make you gain weight. So, just give up on sodas. Simply replace it with water. Actually, having 5 liters of water a day can help you lose weight very fast and hey, it’s healthy!

Tip Number 7: Snacks for a quick bite? NO! It’s really comfy to sit on the couch, watch your favorite TV show and have your hand inside that potato chips bowl. Mars bars, snickers, chocolate, cookies, you name it, they are all troublemakers for your weight loss campaign! The best thing to do while watching TV? Stand up once in a while, stretch your arms and legs, you can even do some light exercise to help you lose weight faster!

Tip Number 8: WALK WALK WALK more! Don’t just DRIVE to your work, to the school, to the park, to the supermarket, and to your backyard! Whenever you have to go to somewhere which is within your walking distance, just walk. Give your car a rest. Twenty minutes of walking everyday can give a tremendous boost to losing your weight fast. Walking burns calories fast and help you lose excess fat even! So, even if you can’t go to gym and train seriously, just take advantage of your daily routine and walk more.

Tip Number 9: No Fast Food please! I know how tempting it is to just eat outside instead of painstakingly preparing a healthy meal at home. I’m sorry to break it to you but eating fast food is like saying welcome to those extra pounds. Even if you have to dine outside, choose from the menus carefully so that you eat the right food, low calorie food and replace the usual coke with lemon spiced water. It can save you a lot of calories and help you lose weight.

Tip Number 10: Be Consistent! This is my last tip but it’s probably the key to lose weight successfully. Sometimes, you will think that starving yourself for a couple of days can speed up the weight loss process. It’s a big mistake. I did it a couple of times on silly impulses and it turned out really bad. I went starving, and then when I couldn’t hold it together anymore, I devoured food like crazy only to gain those die-hard pounds again. All I got myself into was a vicious cycle! So, don’t even think about starving yourself. Be consistent in your approach. If you want to lose weight permanently, you have to be consistent in your diet plan.

I know that it’s only 10 tips and they may already look like daunting tasks to you. If you need more information regarding the calorie intake and the types of food to help you lose weight faster, there is an online diet program that outlines the best ways to lose weight permanently and stay healthy.

I hope the information above can help you to a slimmer self! If you have any more questions, please feel free to comment below and I will try my best to answer those. Thank you for your time and wish you luck!
