A close female friend of mine spent many of her teenage years battling the genetic shape her body was taking. She was an incredibly attractive girl throughout her early teenage years but family genetics started to catch up with her around the age of 16.
It wasn’t really her fault – both her mother, her father and her elder brother were a ‘little on the large side’. She was simply following the gene pool suit.
She took on many different healthy lifestyle changes and she has continually won every weight battle put her way – she is quite an inspiration actually!
Over the past twenty odd years she has picked up on many good diet tips for losing weight. She was kind enough to cover a few of them in this article today…
Looking to lose weight the quick and healthy way? Check out the Breakthrough Fat Diminisher Principles HERE
1) Food Ingredient Lists
How often do you actually LOOK at the ingredient list on an item of food? If you’re anything like me you’ll probably scan straight to the calorie or saturated fat section and completely miss the actual ingredients!
Forget about the nutritional label and flip the item over – start off with the ingredient list and discover what hidden dangers are actually INSIDE the food!
2) Fruit Mineral Waters
I’ve covered the importance of drinking water to lose weight many, many times before on this site – I’m not going to do it again!
For some reason this is still a big stumbling block for certain individuals who are looking to lose weight. I guess some people cannot live with plain old water in their life!
I get it! I get it! You’re used to sweetly flavored soda drinks – that was part of your weight loss problem in the first place!
If you struggle with the boredom of plain water why not try a few fruit infused water flavors?
Most of them are pretty much set up for weight loss programs and taste great – an awesome alternative for the soda-tooth addict!
3) Eat at The Table
For some unknown reason we are more tempted to eat crap if we are not sitting comfortably at a dinner table – somewhere where eating is the main purpose of the platform!
If you eat in front of a computer or stuffed into a tube or train seat your are more likely to pick the option that is not so good for your waistline.
Whenever it is mealtime make sure you sit in front of something that can act as your meal table. Keep it consistent and keep it healthy!
4) Beware of Fake Sugars
Whenever we start off a new diet we immediately look for things that can replace the naughty options we used to consume. This means we usually end up at the doorstep of fake sugars.
Diet Coke, Coke zero, 7up Free and Fresca – all of these may seem like good choices but they are actually ‘stay away’ items.
Look at point 2 above – replace fake sugars with fruit infused water flavors!
5) Hide The Scales
When you feel like you’ve been the healthiest man/woman on the planet for a week you NEED to find out how much weight you’ve lost…don’t do it!
Go to the bathroom, pick up the scales and then place them in a truly difficult cupboard to get at. Find a section that is stuffed full of junk and put the scales right at the back of it all.
Scales should not come out during the first month of your dieting efforts – period.
I know it’s hard but it is worth it in the long run – when you feel great you are curious whether the scales are going to show the same thing you are feeling!
What happens if they don’t show you what you want to see?
6) Make The Meal Effort
How often do you actually go out of the way to cook yourself a really nice meal? Think about it for just a second…
Whenever relatives or guests are coming to stay you go into overdrive on what to cook and how to prepare it – why don’t you do that for yourself every now and again?
I know you have to be careful with the diet ingredients you cook but there is still a vast choice of delicious weight loss meals out there.
It may take time and it may cost money – but everyone needs a treat now and again right?
