There are so many people out there that want to lose weight, that fall for the latest fad diet, the latest diet pills. These are the same people that go on a diet EXTREME. They begin with an impossible, depriving meal plan or an outrageous exercise plan that only lasts a couple of days. In other words, they start a diet or exercise regimen that they can’t maintain. Then, its only natural that they fail, and they flop over to the over extreme-making poor food and lifestyle choices.
The key to successful weight loss is that one must begin a program that they can maintain for life. Your diet has to be a diet for life. You must include foods that you can’t live without, as well as all the healthy foods that your body needs. It has to be a plan that you can stick with everyday. You have to pick an exercise program where your body can slowly progress step-by-step. Marathon runners didn’t start out running 26.2 miles at one time; they had to build up to it. The same is true for everyone else.
Weight loss requires dedication and sensibility. It can be done, if done the right way. When you are planning your weight loss plan, ask yourself if you can stick with it EVERY day.
