6 Easy Weight Loss Tips That May of Slipped Your Mind!

weight loss scales sirographyWith all of the marketing campaigns around various pills, diet drinks and “magic” weight-loss supplements, it is easy to get distracted from the real, fundamental weight-loss methods that have proven themselves over time. Continue reading for a reminder of six weight loss basics that are guaranteed to work if you choose to apply them consistently.

Work at it baby!

Engage in a steady exercise routine each week. There are many philosophies regarding exercise. Some of the newer ideas, from exercise gurus such as Jorge Cruise, emphasize short workouts, such as eight minutes each morning. Other fitness experts recommend working out for longer periods of time, but all agree that consistency and frequency is key if you want to see weight loss results.

Count those Calories

Keep track of the number of calories you eat each day, and use this to guide your workouts. Weight loss is simple: take in fewer calories than you consume, and you will lose weight. This does not include people with thyroid or other health issues. As long as you are healthy, you can track your daily calories, research the number of calories used by certain types of exercise, and then plan your workouts to use up the amount of calories you need to hit your weight loss goals.

Be at one with losing weight!

Keep in mind that emotions play a large part when it comes to diet and weight-loss success. If you try to starve yourself or eat an unbalanced diet when attempting to lose weight, you deprive your system of a balanced set of nutrients. This causes you to suffer from neurotransmitter imbalances, which lead to depression, anxiety, apathy, fatigue and other emotions and sensations. Getting yourself in this condition makes it incredibly difficult to have the discipline to faithfully follow your diet program.

Break the exercise rut

Mix up your work-out routines to keep things fresh. When you do the same workout routine, day after day, it becomes stale and boring. This not only makes it harder to stay on your plan, it does not benefit your body as much. Varied workouts are much easier to stick with. Even if you only do walking for your workout, vary your path each day, or at least change it weekly to make it easier to stay motivated.

P-P-P-Pick up a vitamin

Do not assume that you are getting all of your vitamin and mineral needs met through your diet. Because of genetically-modified foods, depleted soils, and low-quality feed, animal and plant foods do not contain as much nutrition as they did a few decades ago. Many health experts agree that you need at least a good daily multi-vitamin and multi-mineral supplement. You can also add amino acid supplements that enhance energy through increased serotonin.

Lose weight with a good drink

Keep yourself properly hydrated. Dehydration causes fatigue and negative emotions such as depression. This can make it more difficult for you to stick to your diet plan. Additionally, when you properly hydrate, you are flushing toxins out of your system. A well-hydrated body gives you more energy to put into your workouts, helping you burn more calories.

It takes a lot more than a magic pill to help your body shed excess weight. Your progress may not happen overnight, but you will feel better, with increased motivation, good moods and improved weight loss success, if you go back to basics with the above tips.
