Weight Loss Strategies 101

When it comes to weight loss, it is true that there is no one-size-fits-all solution. What works for your friend may not work for you. This is due to the fundamental fact that each and everyone’s biological responses to the body are different and the reason for this depends on various genetic and dietary factors. So to determine what works best for you, you should try a few different options and be patient with each one until you hit the jackpot for your weight loss strategy. Understandably easier said than done, but with a little commitment, it’s definitely not impossible. This article is about two of the key elements that contribute to your weight loss strategy.

1. Proteins, fats and carbohydrates:

It is true that your food intake may be the most important factor in your weight gain, as well as your weight loss strategy. Again, the same food does not have the same effect on two different people. It may not even have the same effect on you if you try it over a period of time. Also, after changing your eating habits, don’t expect to see results right away or all at once. The effects are often undefined and imprecise. If implementing a diet strategy for one week reduces 1 pound of weight, it is not necessary that continuing to implement the same strategy for the next week will reduce another pound of your weight. It could be more; it could be less. Eating carbs is said to create a craving for more carbs, which is why you eventually put on your weight. If you want to reduce your weight, the first step is to cut carbohydrates and then eliminate bad fats.

2. Exercise:

Although food is the most important factor in your body weight, exercise plays almost an equal role in getting you closer to your weight loss goal. Exercise speeds up your metabolism. One of the biggest benefits of exercise is that it burns fat in your body, and you do it quickly. If you don’t exercise, your body can still burn fat through daily physical activities, but it will be extremely slow. Just like when you set up your diet plan, you don’t need to spend a lot of money to come up with an exercise plan. When it comes to exercise to lose weight, you need to do what you love to do. Walking, biking, and hiking are all activities that just need time and a little commitment. Whichever exercise you choose, be sure to do it in sets with adequate intervals between sets. Don’t exhaust yourself to the point of feeling tired the next day to do any exercise, which will slow down your overall weight loss progress.

These are the two fundamentals of weight loss. Get started with these and track your progress over a period of time. Feel free to change your plan if you need to.
