Don’t Wait Any Longer. Start Your Own Weight Loss Journey Today!
So, how can you make your weight loss journey a success? Here are the two most important things you need to know before you get started:
Everybody is different. What works for one person may not work for you. There’s no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution so you may need to try a few different things to find what’s best for you – and then stick with it.
Healthy weight loss is about changing your lifestyle, not just your diet. For real results, think long-term and make changes that are sustainable, otherwise you’ll end up right back where you started. This is called ‘yo-yo’ dieting and is not good for your physical – or mental – health.
There’s a lot of information and advice out there, but the general rule in order to lose weight, is this:
‘The energy you use must be greater than what you take in through food.’
In the past, this has resulted in an ‘eat less, move more’ mentality around weight loss, but that no longer has to be the case. It’s not about simply ‘eating less’, it’s about eating less of the wrong foods, and more of the right foods. More about that later.
Here are some tips to get you started:
Set realistic goals. Start by making small, realistic changes to your diet and how physically active you are. Diets that are too restrictive, such as cutting out entire food groups for a period of time, will be difficult to stick to.
Measure your progress in a way that works. Weight loss doesn’t have to be about a number on a set of scales. It could be about how you look in the mirror or how you feel in your clothes. Plus, remember that muscle weighs more than fat, so you may not see your weight reduce as much as you hoped, especially if you’re doing resistance training as well as cardio.
Staying motivated. There are lots of things you can do to stay motivated. Keeping a journal will help you keep track of your progress and joining an online community or weight-loss programme will give you more support.
Prioritise good sleep. Sleep can have a big effect on your weight. Poor sleep can make us reach for high-calorie/high fat foods in an attempt to boost our energy levels so make sure you get the rest you need.
All calories are not equal. Calorie counting is a useful tool and can give us something to focus on, but obsessive calorie-counting can be counterproductive and stressful so don’t rely on this alone. It’s about quality, not quantity. Try to eat ‘real’ food by cooking from scratch, rather than eating processed food or take outs.
Read the nutrition information on food labels. You might be surprised to find out what’s hidden in some of the foods you eat. Always check the traffic light colour system used on packaging to see whether a product has a high, medium or low amount of fat, saturate, sugars and salt in it.
