Help to lose weight

Do you need help to lose weight?

What is an effective way to lose weight? Their are many weight loss programs out there, some that work and some that don't. This can be very daunting for anyone searching for one that might work. Some of those diets include: Atkins, South Beach, Vegetarian, Cabbage Soup, Grapefruit, High-Protein, Raw Food, Cave man, etc... Their are unlimited diets available to those that want help to lose weight. As stated earlier this can be overwhelming. A lot of the above diets help to lose weight in the beginning, but it's difficult to sustain these results, these diets are for the short term.

These programs will help to lose weight, however the best way to sustain that weight loss is to make a complete lifestyle change. You might ask how is this done? An effective weight loss program might look as follows: 1) proper eating and 2) regular exercise. Let's look closer at proper eating, this would include the following: every meal should have a quality protein combined with a complex carbohydrate.

A quality protein would be eggs, chicken, fish, lean beef, low fat cottage cheese and whey protein. A complex carb would be brown rice, sweet potato, oats, quinoa or beans. Another item that should be incorporated is a veggie, possibly broccoli, green beans or spinach. Green fibrous veggies are the best, however a green salad with a small amount of dressing that is low in sugar is also an option. The goal is to eat 5 - 6 small meals per day by combining a protein and a carb along with a veggie at least twice a day. This is an effective weight loss program. I've trained hundreds of people and those that have followed this eating style have had great success losing weight. Once an individual gets accustomed to this program it quickly becomes a way of life. Lastly the exercise piece, individuals doing this program should be exercising at least 3 - 4 times per week. An exercise program should include both weight training and cardio. These two components will help to lose weight.

Some benefits of following this lifestyle change will include greater energy, sustained fat loss, and overall better health. Unlike all the other aforementioned diets this is not a diet at all, it's a lifestyle change that is very sustainable. So this eating plan coupled with regular exercise is an effective weight loss program.
