Guide to Weight Loss Success

There are diet fads, diet pills, products, and strict protocols that will help you lose weight quickly — and then gain it back twice as fast. We develop relationships with food over the course of our lives, and many turn into addictions and routines. What we eat, when we eat, how much we eat, how we eat and why we eat are really the magical missing pieces of the weight-loss puzzle. If we’re not aware of these questions and answers, then no diet, weight loss routine, or supplement will ever work.


1. Set and Record a Realistic Goal

Set the record straight

Whether you want to reduce bloating, lose five pounds, 10 pounds, or much more, you first need to set a goal and write it down. Without concrete goals, it’s difficult to succeed. If you want to lose five pounds, write it down. When do you want to lose this weight by? Jot that down, as well. Be realistic. One pound of fat is 3,500 calories, which means if you cut 500 calories each day (by exercising and watching your portion sizes), you can easily lose 1 pound per week.

2. Buy A Journal for Yourself

Buy a small pocket-sized notebook that looks nice, so you’ll actually want to carry it around and write in it. Or if you have an iPhone or an Adroid and purchase an application that will to record everything you eat every day for two weeks. I guarantee you’ll eat less and make better food choices. There’s something sobering about seeing your daily food intake recorded on paper. You’ll think twice about how much and what you eat, so you can honestly record a healthy food day.

Jot down your progress!

3. Stop Putting Limitations On Yourself

Stop putting limiations on yourself!

We all generate some unscientific statements about what we can and cannot do, such as: “I’m not a runner,” “I need sugar and coffee to survive,” “My body just doesn’t want to change” and “I can’t, I’m not, I shouldn’t.” If you identify yourself with such limitations, you’ll maintain the same patterns and weight loss (or any personal growth) will be hard to achieve. Ask yourself what you’ve been avoiding and why, then challenge yourself to destroy those negative self-limitations.

4. Never Stuff Yourself

It’s interesting that over thousands of years, we’ve stuck with the idea of eating until we’re full. Studies show that eating until you are 80 percent full leads to lifelong weight control, better health status, more energy and can actually add years to your life.

5. Get the Moving!
