Does losing weight really have to be that hard? Many people think about this each and every day. They want a magical quick fix to a weight problem that happened over a period of years. We all know there is no quick fix when it comes to losing weight. Let’s take a closer look into rapid weight loss to see what else we can discover.
People think all they have to do is get on a low calorie diet lose weight. They lower their calories to the point of slowing down their metabolism when what you want to do is speed up your metabolism. When this happens your body will actually gain weight.
A healthy diet is at least 1200 to 1500 calories for an active person. If your calorie intake is allowed to go below 1000 your metabolism will start to slow down to compensate for the lack of calories.
The exact opposite of what you want to happen..
Another way people make it harder on themselves when trying to lose weight is by eating the wrong foods. For instance While corn and peas are vegetables they are also starches. They should be eaten in the daily starch allotment instead of the vegetable one. Green leafy vegetables on the other hand fit in the vegetable allotment for the day. So you need to classify your foods correctly.
You must eat breakfast! Breakfast gets the metabolism going in the morning. Many people skip breakfast and it is the most important meal of the day. It’s much better for you yo eat 5-6 small meals during the day instead of three big ones. This keeps your metabolism going throughout the day.
Most people don’t drink enough water. This makes losing weight harder if you don’t take in enough water. The various cells of the body need water to function properly and efficiently. When your cells are healthy and doing their jobs right the body works more efficiently. Drinking more water will help you burn calories and lose weight .
But you must do more than just drink gallon after gallon of water…
The most important mistake people make is not exercising enough or not doing the proper exercises . If you don’t move, your body will not burn enough calories for you to lose weight. You have to exercise on a regular basis to maximize burning your calories.
People think they can adjust their eating patterns and the weight will melt off. This is an important step but most people need more than adjusting their meals and taking a pill.
You must exercise to keep your metabolism at a level that burns calories fast enough for you to lose weight. Also the more muscle you have to better your body will burn fat. Physical activity is a must for you to lose those unwanted pounds.
So why is losing weigh so hard? It is hard because most people do it the wrong way. They don’t eat right and do not get enough exercise to lose weight. You need to realize starting today that effective weight loss cannot happen without some type of physical activity.
