What You Need

There are many solutions to losing weight. Some will work better than others, but they all boil down to a few basic precepts that will always be workable and usable by most people. These are as follows:

  1. A good, wholesome and healthy diet
  2. Regular exercise
  3. A positive frame of mind


Let's take these three important facets of the weight loss process and expand a little on each.

1. A Good, Wholesome and Healthy Diet

This may come as no great surprise to learn, but is important to know nonetheless. If your regular diet is made up chiefly of junk or fast food, prepared meals that have been bought pre-packaged from the supermarket, high sugar snacks like cakes, biscuits, pastries, cookies, chocolate candy bars etc, then you are asking for trouble in the area of weight gain!

In order to maintain a healthy weight, you need to eat well and by eating well, I mean eating lots of fresh, wholesome foods like fresh fruits and vegetables, lean meats and fish all bought fresh (or in the case of fruit and vegetables, grown yourself, even better), prepared and cooked by you or a family member. You know when something tastes good when you are reminded of the way mother used to make it. or in the case if newer generations, the way grandmother used to make it!

2. Regular Exercise

While it's important to eat a healthy diet, it is equally important to have a healthy metabolism so your body can efficiently burn all the calories it consumes. To do that, you need to exercise.

You need to do it regularly and it should include some cardiovascular work such as aerobic exercises designed to make your heart beat faster, your breathing to be harder and for you to feel like you just worked out! Now that doesn't have to be done in a gym, you can get a pretty good workout just going for a long walk and walking quite fast. Even better if you can walk up and down hills. Swimming is another good exercise that needn't be strenuous to provide great benefits to your health.

3. A Positive Frame of Mind

A positive mental attitude is also a necessary part of getting back in shape, because unless you are determined to succeed, you will never succeed! You must ne adamant that you will see this through to the end and make it work. You must also believe that you cab do it by believing in yourself. When you believe in yourself and your abilities to do anything, then you will achieve whatever it is you set out to do, because that's what you believed would happen!
