It does not matter your age, sex, marital status, your level of income or education, or even where you live, all of us struggle with our weight. Some more than others and some now rather than later. If we look at society and see that most of us are leading rather busy, hectic lives that have no time to exercise and just enough time to eat and jump in bed after an exhaustive day, then we would see there is no wonder why we all struggle with our weight.
And most time we attack our weight loss problem in the same manner as how we attack life. A mindless chore that needs to be done in the quickest amount of time so that we can move on to the next task at hand that also require our attention.
Unfortunately, weight loss will not let us get away with that attitude. Weight loss is not a chore that we do today and do not deal with again until another month. It requires a daily work on our part and it requires an attitude of being fully engaged.
If we must be successful at weight loss we will have to know that it takes planning, effort and the mindset that we must think of it as something to be maintained rather than something that is conquered and forgotten about while it runs on auto pilot.
First to start on a weight loss program is that we might need to visit the doctor to make sure that we do not have a thyroid or hormonal imbalance. This is one of the most important steps yet so many people miss this step.
All these issues can sabotage a weight loss program. Getting a physical before you start any weight loss program is a healthy choice because you do not enter into the weigh loss program without knowing what medical challenges you might be facing. Do not skip this task, visit your doctor and get his or her advice before starting your weight loss program.
Weight Loss demands that we are actively engaged in our nutrition and diet. The old diet will have to be replaced with a new diet. Our new diet will now have to consist of nutritious foods such as salmon, fatty fish, lean meat, whole grains, nuts, beans, fruits and vegetables.
Once weight loss has been decided upon, you must add exercise to your plan. There is no one size fits all exercise. You will have to do an exercise that you like. Health experts might tell you that weight lifting is a great way to lose weight. But you hate lifting weight, how long will you stick to weight lifting when you have so many other things that demand your time and energy? Not long.
Choose an exercise that fits you life and that fits your lifestyle. Customize your diet and your exercise plan to suit your weight loss goals and you will get to your goals much faster.
