How To Lose Weight – Guide For The Busy Person
The world is just getting busier and busier as time goes on. More and more things to do, the list just never seems to end. We barely have enough time to put food in our stomachs let alone relax a little with our friends and family. And the way things are going, it seems things will not slow down anytime soon.
Most individuals regardless of how busy they are often believe that getting healthy and losing all the excess body fat that is on their person requires that you spend half the day in the gym working out and the other half of the day in the kitchen preparing so called healthy foods.
This mental picture of what it takes to get fit and healthy is the reason why most people never bother to take action. However the reality is that while you may be busier than ever before, you only need to change a few small things to getthe weight loss results that you dream about.
Regardless of how much weight you want to lose, it isn’t that hard once you know exactly what knowledge you need to apply.
My advices for those that are not prepared to put in the hard work and dedication is to just give up know. Don’t bother looking for shortcuts because things like diet pills don’t work!
Just follow my principles below and pretty soon you will be in the best shape of your life:
Stop Over Eating
This is becoming a bigger issue than most people would like to admit. People in general have become used to eating until they are stuffed. But believe me not only will this result in you putting on an excessive amount of weight but it will results in the likelihood of you getting diseases such as liver disease.
Most of the popular restaurants that you are used to eating out at these days are used to serving up portion sizes that are way too big for one individual. Usually enough to feed a small family. This is why I’d recommend that you avoid them at all costs.
My favourite way to eat less is to actually just pay extremely close attention to the foods that you eat. This means that you need to stop watching TV while eating your food. Just focus completely on the food and nothing else. This one trick will help you lose an incredible amount of weight fast.
This is great for the busy person because smaller portions of food will take less time to eat.
Stop Consuming Sugary Drinks
All those calorie intense drinks that you find in your local coffee shop need to be avoided at all costs. Energy drinks, and fizzy cans of coke will do nothing but cause you to gain unwanted weight.
If you really have to drink something then make sure that it’s after a really intense workout. If you really want to be successful at losing weight then I’d encourage you to drink water, and water only.
You keep this habit up and slowly but surely you will come to a point where you will begin to lose a lot of weight in literally no time at all.
Stop Eating Bread
You should literally treat bread like poison because that is exactly what it is. Bread is the number one reason why the vast majority of overweight people in this world gained weight in the first place. The truth is that this one tip alone will result in you losing a lot of weight in no time at all.
Understand the ‘Why’ Behind Your Weight Loss Journey
Yes, looking great in the mirror is a wonderful reason to get started on your journey to lose weight but believe me it alone will not sustain your motivations to keep going and doing the work that is required to get fit. There will be tough times when you just want to give up and the only way to stay on track is to have inner convictions to help you get the results that you desire.
The deeper and stronger the ‘Why’ the more likely it is that you will never give up on your quest to losing weight.
So just take an afternoon of your time and start to reflect on why you want to shed the fat off your body. It will be a great use of your time.
How To Snack
Yes, unfortunately it seems that as a culture we seemed to have developed the terrible habit of constantly eating all the time. This means that even though we are busy or perhaps because of it, we just keep on mindlessly stuffing our faces with junk foods.
The bigger issue is the fact that we just don’t pay attention to how much we are eating and usually end up gorging on massive size portions of the junk.
The solution is really simple and requires no effort on your part. Just work on paying attention whenever you start to eat something. It really doesn’t get any simpler than that.
The best thing to work toward will be to actually start to slowly but surely begin to eat things that are good for you. Instead of munching on that bar of chocolate opt to grab a piece of fruit. This way you will not only begin to enjoy the healthy foods more but you will end up losing a lot of weight in the process.
So there you go my friends, as you’ve seen from my tips above it doesn’t matter how busy you are. You could literally be the president of the United States and still be able to lose all the weight that you want to lose. All it requires is a little focus and dedication. Keep applying the tips above and soon enough you will end up losing the weight that you want to lose.
Just get out there and start to take action.
