Did you know that dieting is one of the worst ways to try and lose weight? Yes, it does help you lose weight and sometimes even body fat, what it doesn't usually help when you want to keep that weight loss gone for good. Once you stop whatever diet plan you're using, you may actually gain back the week you've lost, and sometimes you might gain even more. Your real goal, should be to not just lose weight, but to lose weight for good. So how do you do that? Well the first thing you should do, is stop dieting. Change your eating habits instead. Most people today think of diets as a way to deprive themselves of food. In reality, a diet is simply a way of eating. If you can change the way you choose to eat, and choose better foods for yourself, you'll start losing weight and you'll be able to keep it off. In other words, you need to start eating healthier and smarter instead of dieting. Instead of choosing a diet to help you lose weight, create a plan that will change the entire way you eat for good.

Most people want to lose weight because they're not happy with the way their body currently looks. They don't like having extra flab on their arms and legs, and a definitely hate having a big belly. These are all great reasons to start losing weight, but it's important to do it right from the start. And often, people try to lose weight in the wrong ways, by following a fad diet, or trying to starve themselves. There are much better, more natural ways, to lose weight easily and keep that weight off. The first thing you need to accept that you can't lose all of your extra body fat or excess weight in a day or two. You didn't gain it that fast, and you won't lose it that fast either. If you haven't discovered this yet, losing the weight is actually much harder than it was to gain it. So you need to set realistic weight loss goals from start. The best way to lose weight is to do it slowly and consistently. The more consistent you are with your weight loss, the more likely you are keep that weight off once you've lost it.
If you've ever started a new exercise or fitness routine, you were probably very pleased with the results you got in the beginning. The first week or two, or maybe even the first month, showed excellent progress slimming and trimming, and burning body fat. If you've stuck with that exercise routine though, you've probably reached a point where it seems like you're stuck. Even though you still have more body fat to burn, and weight to lose, you can't seem to make good progress much further. Why is that? It's because your body is smarter than you might realize. You see, the human body adapts amazingly well to pretty much anything you force it to endure. So if it's not used to regular exercise, and you start forcing it to do that, then it will work extra hard to get itself prepared to handle that new routine. But it learns from what you teach it. So after a while the body gets used to the extra physical activity you're forcing it to do, and it becomes much more efficient at doing it.
I often get the question "Can green tea lose my weight?" The answer is partially true. Green tea supplements solely cannot lose your weight for you. It takes a balanced diet and a healthy regiment of exercise in order to completely lose the desired amount of weight. However, green tea will help you in your goal to lose your weight significantly. Green tea supplements offer concentrated doses of Camellia Sinensis leaves. These leaves contain the active ingredients which are the key to solution to weight loss. These active ingredients work by greatly increasing levels of metabolic activity within the body. This speeds up the bodies use of energy which is produced from food. This works to reduce the overall fat stores. Other ingredients are often included in green tea supplements that can greatly improve weight loss. In addition green tea supplements act to help move foods along the digestive track giving food shorter periods to be absorbed up into fat stores. Green tea supplements should be taken at least twice daily.

The concept of eating natural raw foods in their living state makes sense to every species in the world except for humans. It's also quite funny that we're the only species that struggles with obesity and a contrasting weight obsessed culture. How many wild animals suffer from obesity (or even other human diseases for that matter)? NONE! Why? Maybe it has something to do with the fact that they eat living foods - that is foods that are not cooked. So let's have a quick look at how eating more raw foods can help you lose weight (and keep you amazingly healthy). Reason #1 - Raw Foods are Nutrient Dense By choosing to eat more raw fruits and vegetables you inevitably bring more vital nutrients into your body. Since your body is receiving more minerals, vitamins, and phytonutrients than it's used to, you actually consume less food. It's by eating nutrient-void foods (ie. colas, processed and fast foods, etc... ) that your body will constantly seek new foods simply because it's trying to meet its mineral quota.
Are you dizzy from all of the health information you get each and every day? How do you sort it all out? How do you know what's right from wrong? I get to watch and listen too (and get a little dizzy from time to time). However, experience as a Doctor has given me the gift to understand that while science and information changes around us at lightening fast speed, the body remains an incredibly consistent and simple "machine" to operate. What I'm suggesting is that the body's requirements for proper, healthy functioning hasn't changed much over the last several thousand years. What HAS changed is our environment and our lifestyle. Our environment is increasingly complex and is loaded with thousands of chemicals and toxins our planet has never seen before. This toxic environment, coupled with the necessary "evils" of mass produced clean food and water nearly void of nutritional content, creates a tremendous strain on our consistent, usually well-adapted bodies. The stresses and strains of "civilized" life drives our body chemistry quickly towards inflammation, degeneration, and disease.
We try to lose weight for various reasons. One of the main reasons for people to lose weight is to live healthier. As a result, you should try to seek for some healthy weight loss plan. You should never do something that is not really healthy. Besides, you should also avoid doing the followings if you would like to lose weight healthily and successfully. The first thing you should know is that dieting is to control the intake of food. You should never forbid yourself from eating some kind of food. This is especially true if you love a particular kind of food which is not really good for you when you are trying to losing weight. For example, if you are someone who loves burgers very much, you can probably have a burger say every two weeks. It will not really hurt if you only eat them once a while. You will not be able to stick to your diet if you try to stay away from your favorite food forever. Besides, you should only eat because you are hungry. Nowadays, a lot of people eat not because they are hungry.
I'm willing to bet you're making simple weight loss mistakes that cost you 3-5 pounds a month. Little mistakes add up to big pounds. So if you can avoid making these mistakes, weight loss becomes a whole lot easier for you. And the thing is, these mistakes are easy to correct and really won't affect you one way or the other. Weight Loss Mistakes That Cost You 3-5 Pounds a Month 1. Drinking liquids with your meals This is bad because you dilute out your natural enzymes that break down your food... making it easier to digest. Repeatedly doing this clogs up and congests your digestive tract... and soon, you're feeling bloated, lethargic, constantly tired, sluggish, losing motivation, and basically... you make it hard to lose weight with an inefficient digestive system. I suggest you drink liquids 5 minutes before and or after your meal to correc that mistake. 2. Not eating 3 apples a day This is a mistake of omission. Here's the deal. If you eat 3 apples a day, everyday, I can basically promise any person who is overweight by more than 15 pounds that you'll lose at least 2 pounds a month for the next 2-4 months.
