More than burning calories

Effective weight loss is more than knowing how to burn and how to count calories.  There are a lot of people who have memorized calorie counts of foods and have bought all the necessary exercise gadgets to monitor calories and exercise performance, but still find it hard to maintain weight.

If you still have unresolved personal issues which might trigger overeating, then there’s a greater chance that you can break your diet plans or discontinue your exercise program because you are not prepared for such circumstances.

Identify the triggers for over-eating or lack of exercise. Write a journal of your food intake, physical activities and even sleep. At the end of the day or week, analyze why you did not follow your food plan. It might be due to stress from work, conflict with your husband or low self-esteem.

The best weight-loss strategy is usually the cheapest one.  Resorting to surgery, liposuction and diet pills can surely make you lose weight, but the real issue is maintaining your weight-loss results long term.  Try not to attribute real weight-loss success to unnatural strategies because the worst thing that can happen is you will be dependent on those.

You are the best person to end your weight loss problems. If you believe that you can lose weight through attitude and behavior change, then you’ve already taken the initial step to long-term weight management.
