Many overweight individuals wish and hope for a quick cure to their weight problems. They will try anything that promises instant results! Unfortunately, these miracle weight loss products are scams! They may help a person shed some water weight, initially. But, the fat isnt going anywhere without a little effort on that persons part!
For those of you who have tried weight loss diets or are thinking about trying one, consider all the dieters who have tried the same diets and failed. The number one reason for permanent weight loss failure is the inability to stick with the diet!
Many individuals become yo-yo dieters. They try one diet for awhile, lose a few pounds, quit the diet, gain back the weight (and then some), and move on to another diet. The process is repeated. With each new attempt, there is often more weight to lose than there was initially!
Successful Weight Loss Strategies
If you want to lose weight successfully, you must realize, first, that there are no miracle diets or products that will blast away the fat! You didnt gain the weight overnight! You arent going to lose it overnight, either! You will have to put forth effort to lose the fat, one pound at a time! Even after youve shed those extra pounds, you will have to continue to work at controlling your weight, if you wish to keep the fat off!
In an article on Consumer Reports.org which rates various popular diets, Cathy Nonas, R.D., M.S., (an obesity researcher at North General Hospital in New York) states, The best diet is the one you can stay on. Consumer Reports goes on to say that adherence is importantTo maintain lost weight, dieters must permanently reduce their calorie intake, because they will need fewer calories to fuel their now-smaller body.
Fad diets typically fail in the end. From my own personal experience, I have found that eating sensibly works best! If you want to lose weight (one pound at a time), keep it off, and feel good, too, why not try cutting down on the empty calories found in most American diets? Eat more raw vegetables and fruits and whole grains. Go easy on the fats and processed sugary or salty snacks. Limit yourself to smaller portions and avoid having second helpings. This type of diet is one that you CAN stick with and live with for the rest of your life!
Yes, youll have to make a few lifestyle changes, and youll have to work on being more disciplined in your eating habits. But, in the end, it will be worth it! Youll look better! Youll feel better! Your confidence will return, and youll believe that there isnt anything that you cannot do!
Wouldnt it be worth giving up that 44-ounce Coke and that huge order of greasy French fries for a healthier, happier you? If you simply cant do without a few French fries and a Coke now and then, go ahead and treat yourself to a small serving. Cut back on calories somewhere else that day. Occasionally, its okay to indulge. But, if you seriously want to shed the extra fat and keep it off, be conscious about everything you put into your mouth. Youll lose that weight, a pound at a time!
Note: Before beginning any weight loss program, be sure to check with your medical professional.

A food diary is a great way to keep track of what you eating and when. Keep track of what you consume on an hourly basis throughout the day. If you do this for 2 weeks you will see exactly where those extra calories (and thereby those extra pounds) are coming from. Also, don’t forget to keep track of what you are drinking.
