3 Weight Loss Solutions To 1 Major Issue

There are many different ways to go about losing those unwanted pounds, so much so that I think that people get frustrated, and discouraged, because they feel its to hard to pick which methods work or rather which methods work best for them.


Get Off The Couch – Get To Work!

This article will try to address some weight loss solutions, and try to make heads, or tails, in hopes of simplifying a somewhat complicated issue. Losing weight isn’t complicated at all, if you burn more calories, than you eat you will loss weight.

Simple enough right, the trick is how to go about doing that in a manner that will not make you fell like you are starving, tired, and suffering. So lets begin with solution number one. And that’s to get your mind ready for the challenge of losing weight.

That’s right you read that correct, I write “challenge,” because although it is simple to lose weight, it will not be easy. You will have to eliminate your favorite sweats, and foods, in order to get the body, and health, that you desire.

So before you begin, you have to get your mind ready. How you go about doing that is by setting a realistic goal first. If you are 300 pounds, its not realistic for you to get a six pack in 4 weeks, that’s just not going to happen.

Most people make this fundamental mistake, and fail quickly, because the expectation is out of whack. See what happens is a person decides they want to lose weight, in order to look good for the summer, so they weigh themselves and see they are 50 pounds over their desired weight.

Weight Loss Solutions That Are Simple To Implement

They realize they need to drop 50 pounds by the time time summer rolls around, which, in this scenario, is two months away. Now what happens, when two weeks into their diet plan, they notice that they haven’t lost any weight?

You guessed it. They quit, and say they cant do it. The reality was that they started with a losing plan, but see themselves as a loser when it doesn’t work – big difference. What they should have done was set that goal back, maybe three or four months, to give them adequate time to account for Murphys Law; which states “whatever can go wrong, will go wrong.”

With this extra time, they can make adjustments, and correct along the way; without being overwhelmed by undue pressure. Now what does this have to do with the mind? Remember that the mind will break before the body does, and if you start with an unrealistic goal, you are going to break when times get tough. So setting goals correctly in the beginning is very important.

Solution number two. Putting together the right nutrition plan is critical. Make no mistake, your diet is 90% of losing weight, and that has to be understood. Some people believe that they can eat anything they want, as long as they workout, and still get the body they want.

Well, if that’s how you think – your thinkin’ is stinkin.’ If it were that easy, everyone would look like a model. Your eating habits have to change, so that your body can change. Now with that said you don’t have to starve yourself, and eat foods that you hate. You can have good foods, that are good for you, and not starve.

Here’s a simple example of what I eat on any given day:

Meal 1 – 2 scoops of vegan protein in almond milk with 1/3 of raw oats

Meal 2 – 1 large apple with 1 serving of Brazil nuts

Meal 3 – 1 cup of brown rice with chicken and a bowl of green leafy veggies

Meal 4 – 2 scoops of vegan protein in water and a scoop of peanut butter

Meal 5 – chicken with a large bowl of green leafy veggies

Meal 6 – 1 serving of Greek yogurt

Don’t forget to drink plenty of water, I drink about a gallon a day

Now you may be thinking, “Wow, I don’t like some of those foods. Do I have to eat all that?” The good news for you is no, I picked those foods because I like them, and they’re good for the body.

You have to find out which foods you like, and stick to those. Now let me tell you what you cannot eat – fast food; and I mean any fast foods. Rule is if you don’t cook it, you don’t eat it.

Candy is also out. The exception is that after a couple of weeks on your plan, you can start taking a cheat meal, and have something sweet – but don’t go crazy. Don’t eat breads, pastas,ice cream, and cakes….. you get where I’m going with this?

And folks, once you have been on it for a solid two weeks, you won’t even miss all that crap. So again identify what your eating that has to go, and what you are going to replace it with; and start the path to good health and your goal.

Solution number three – work out. Interestingly enough, this is probably the easiest part, because if you aren’t really moving now, any movement is good for you. For instance you can begin with a nice walk 2 – 3 days a week for 20 – 30 minutes – simple as that.

Or you could join a gym and hire a trainer to work with you; or maybe work out with a friend at the park. It doesn’t have to be some crazy workout plan, it can be something as easy as this:

  1. Monday – walk for 20 minutes and stretch
  2. Wednesday – walk for 20 minutes
    1. Do 10 pushups
    2. Do 10 squats
    3. Stretch
  3. Friday – walk for 20 minutes and stretch

See that didn’t sound too hard, did it? Once you get used to that you could increase your walks, and repetitions, on each exercise. But you have to begin somewhere. You can also take up yoga; which is good for over health and wellness.

And again these are just some ideas to help you get started. Now you may have noticed that I gave you three weight loss solutions, but solutions to what you may ask. Solutions to one major issue many overweight people are dealing with – procrastination.

Most people never get things done because they are waiting for tomorrow. No need to wait. I have made it simple for you to start , so get off your rear end, and go get the body you dreamed of today.
