Wise Tips On Sticking With Your Weight Loss Plan

Every one of us is eager to lose weight, and in this enthusiasm we make great plans and start them with great passion. However, after a few days or weeks, we feel less motivated and the intensity with which we pursued weight loss starts diminishing and eventually we quit.

The biggest mistake committed by us pertaining to weight loss is setting unrealistic goals, the non-achievement of which leads to demoralization and eventual quitting. We need to understand that weight loss is a gradual process and it takes time to lose weight.

Making the fact understood that weight loss is a gradual process, the lines below give some tips on how you can stick with your weight loss program and not quit it prematurely. 

·         The first thing you need to consider is your metabolism. Your metabolism predicts how fast or slow are you going to lose weight. The more frequently you eat, the more higher your metabolic rate goes. Moreover, adding spices to your foods can help increase the metabolism substantially, thus you burn more calories and a greater weight loss consequently.

·         The second thing that can help you stick with your weight loss plan is slow eating. When you eat crazy, you don’t know what you are eating and how much have you eaten. Your brain takes at least 20 minutes to respond to the food you have eaten and give you the message that you have had your fill. But when you eat blindly, your brain does not respond to it timely and you eat more than required, resulting in hindrance in weight loss and consequent quitting.

·         When eating out with friends, separate your share from the group. When you eat in group you tend to eat more without realizing how much you have eaten. Therefore, when with friends, take out your share separately.

·         Hydration is also necessary for better metabolism. When you eat 8 to 10 glasses of water every day, you keep your metabolism at its optimal and the system clean, thus, it aids in weight loss.

·         Most of us think that in order to lose weight we need to perform extreme exercise. The notion is wrong; you need not to go to gym 7 days a week, rather going to gym 3-4 times a week and performing normal exercises helps in losing 1-2 pounds a week. People who fall prey to extreme and intense exercise are the ones who quit early compared to those who take things slow and steady.

·         When eating at home, don’t eat directly from the bowl, this way you will eat more. Instead, opt for smaller plates that accommodate small portions of food. This way, you will avoid any overeating.

·         Don’t opt for fasting as a means of weight loss. It has very adverse affects on your health and slows down your metabolism. As a result of fasting, your calorie burning process slows down and the body starts storing fats instead. Therefore, don’t opt for fasting, rather consumed foods in moderate quantity and using healthy supplements for weight loss such as green tea to help boost the metabolism and keep the calorie burning process running.


In short, the key to weight loss is sticking with your plan. In order to do so you need to have dedication and take things slowly step by step.
