Although the usual suspects in weight gain are poor choices, bad habits, wrong thinking, over-feeding, and so on, there are certain underlying medical issues that can pack up on weight and prevent weight loss.
If this situation is happening to you, it is no injustice, but please be encouraged that medical conditions contributing to weight gain are known and can be corrected.The reason why I am so confident about this is because a couple of years ago, I found myself in a similar predicament. I had to work hard to maintain what was for me, a very stable weight, and a weight that felt good and natural with the weight loss diet tips I will explain below.
1. Avoid Artificial Foods
Your effort to reduce weight will not be successful if you eat artificial foods. Nature does not grow rich desserts, cakes, pies, thick sauces or sandwiches. Nature, however, provides delicious fruits and salad vegetables, both of which are low in calories, as well as fish, eggs and poultry that will enable you lose weight easily.
2. Avoid Compulsory Finishing of Leftovers
To lose weight, you must reduce the quantity of food you eat. Some people cannot bear to see food wasted, and will eat remnants, whether or not they are hungry. Leftovers are less nutritious because of vitamin losses.
3. The Eat and Run Habit
To prevent you from eating too much and add weight, eat your foods at a slow, leisurely pace. Take more time with your meals to get more value from them. If you chew everything twice as long, you will crave less food, and also satisfy your taste.
4. Avoid Unhealthy Fats
For successful weight loss, do not eat unhealthy fats, or at least try to limit them. These include saturated fats found primarily in fatty animal products, tropical oils such as coconut oil, palm kernel oil and hydrogenated fats. These fats will make you add weight and will not make the weight loss diet program successful.
5. Avoid Eating Late
For your weight loss diet program to be successful, do not eat after 7 or 8 p.m at night. This is because food eaten late in the evening is metabolized slowly overnight and has a tendency to be stored easily as body fat that will make you add weight.
6. Intentional Exercise
For any successful weight loss program, exercise is a key factor. You must make exercise motivating, by choosing an activity that you enjoy doing, and that you can do with a reasonable level of skill and mastery to lose weight.
You must ramp up your exercise so that your body is physiologically capable of losing weight and counteracting weight gain. When you do this, you maximize your weight loss and your ability to keep your weight off permanently.
