Article by Crystal Adelson
Dieting and Burning Fat with Positive ThinkingIf you’re looking for accurate effective techniques on how you can better reach your weight loss desires; then this article is for you! In light of weight loss, this thought provoking quote is true: ‘Don’t rely on someone else for your happiness and self worth; you alone are responsible for that’. To be successful on your diet don’t associate the term ‘dieting’ negatively in your mind or you will be reminded of past failures. Negative thoughts, words and attitudes can bring up negative and unhappy moods and actions. This is the way to failure, frustration and disappointment. Positive thinking is a mental attitude conductive to favorable results. 1. Practical Thinking: Many people want to lose weight, get healthy and desire fast results. However, when they do not see the weight coming off, they can get discourage and start going back to their old unhealthy lifestyle habits. The best thing you can do to prevent falling back into your old habits is to write down each daily and weekly obtainable goal that will be easier for you to reach. Losing weight can seem impossible at times, especially if you spent the majority of your life putting it on. You should set your goal to lose 2 pounds a week, with the focus on getting healthy. This type of goal setting is very sustainable and can help keep you motivated as you develop a healthy new lifestyle.2. Quick and Easy Weight Loss: If you are looking for a shortcut to losing weight, join the club because that is something every person over weight is wanting too. I have tried most of them myself and have spent thousands of dollars on products and programs over the years. In actuality, exercise is certainly one of the best things you can do to best develop your weight loss program. In order to burn fat, the principle things to remember are eating healthy (no more junk food allowed) and sticking with a regular exercise program. However, many people wanting to lose weight are very hasty they try to lose weight fast for an upcoming special occasion they don’t overlook the importance of long term health considerations. People interested in losing weight permanently need to avoid fad diets. Fad diets are packaged and marked in an attractive fashion so get the attention of people who are over weight and want to loose weight very quickly. Before starting any diet or exercise program, make an appointment to discuss it with your family physician. This will help to keep your goals on track with your health and give you the assurance of knowing you are proceeding in a way that is best for your overall health and success.Fat Loss Tip: Men have more muscle mass therefore they burn calories faster and lose weight more easily than women.3. Exercise: Committing to lifestyle changes including exercise programs such as; walking, water aerobics and joining a gym, coupled with having a good attitude, can help you lose weight effectively and continue to be successful in maintaining your weight. Weight loss is realistic and with proper dietary changes that includes some type of regular exercise, such as walking with a partner several days a week. For many people wanting to lose weight, just by taking time to walk 3-5 days a week and add an increased amount of water intake alone are important factors for losing weight. 4. Drinking Water: Drinking water may be the most important pieces to the weight loss puzzle. Recent studies have shown that decreases in water intake will negatively affect your metabolism and cause you to either stop losing weight or gain some weight back. You can actually burn an extra 50 to 100 calories a day by drinking just 4 to 8 cups of ice cold water. Weight Loss Facts: Calories are expended heating the cold water you drink up to a normal body temperature.5. Low Fat Treats: Allow yourself 2-3 low calorie snacks a day, if you deprive yourself to much you may end up overeating at night. You need a healthy eating plan that will work with your lifestyle and tastes. People on extremely restrictive diets can easily get discourage when they fall off the wagon and can get sucked into thinking that since they’ve blown it they can eat more and start all over again the following day. It’s okay to have an occasional, but modest ‘cheat’ meal or treat to be part of your weekly meal plan. Don’t get carried away; otherwise you will damage your progress. Plan your meals and snack ahead of time, especially for the weekends when there are more temptations to eat the wrong things.At the end of the day, you need to remember to reach your goal of permanent weight loss; you will need a permanent life style change. Also consider the words of a German Proverb…’Let your head be more than a funnel to your stomach’.
