You’ve probably heard that 95 percent of all diets fail. Almost everyone who loses weight eventually regains it. This isn’t true, but it’s easy to understand why so many of us believe it.
The problem isn’t really with diets. It’s with a lack of guidance after your diet.
Below is the ideal post weight loss strategy you should follow :
1. Exercise at least an hour a day, almost every day
2. Follow a low-fat, low-sugar, low-calorie diet
3. Eat more or less the same stuff all the time
4. Minimize TV watching
5. Eat breakfast
The results should be encouraging, even if you fall short of your original weight-loss target, permanently downsizing 5 to 10 percent of your stomach offers great health benefits, and improves your appearance as well.
To keep weight off, you have to adjust. You will need your own set of skills and practices that are different from the ones you used to lose in the first place.
Here are three ways to keep lost body fat off for good!!.
Find your new normal. Fit the lifestyle you desire into your everyday life and soon enough it will feel completely normal.
Plan your meals. You can maintain your weight with a low-fat, low sugar, well balanced diet; just pick one and stick with it. That takes proper planning that your nearest bootcamp fitness center can help you with.
Make a list before you shop. The “plan your meals” bit works only if you also write down everything you need before you shop. It’s common sense, but it’s uncommonly used.
Focus on process, not outcome. When you’re losing weight, you think of an outcome and then find a process that takes you there. For weight maintenance, it helps to start with the process. Try these sustainable habits.
Drink a lot of water. The water itself may or may not be important for weight control, but the practice of drinking it throughout the day serves as a gentle between-meals reminder.
Eat the same number of meals a day. It doesn’t matter if you have three, four, or six. You just can’t skip a meal or planned snack It disrupts your hunger cues and puts you at risk of eating stuff you’d typically try and avoid, or of overeating when you finally do eat.
Include fruits, vegetables, and/or lean protein in every meal. A large body of research, shows the importance of eating protein and fresh, fiber-rich foods among those who successfully manage their weight.
Reward yourself. Weight loss is about deprivation. Weight maintenance works best when you occasionally give in to temptation.
