What you need is a diet that you live with for the rest of your life, which allows you to not only lose weight, but maintain your new weight. You have a body weight that your body naturally seeks. Let’s call that weight your healthy body weight. With a proper nutritious diet and some physical activity you can achieve your healthy body weight.
So you know right now, you are probably above your healthy body weight. 2 of every 3 people are either obese or overweight. If you are reading this article, you are probably one of them. So how can you achieve your healthy body weight? First, you need to control how many calories you consume. You can control your calories by controlling what foods you eat. You don’t want to restrict your diet, just adjust it.
By adjusting your diet, you can consume healthy, high volume, low calorie foods like vegetables instead of eating low volume, high calorie foods like candy bars. Secondly, you can control how many calories you burn each day by increasing your daily activities. Do you need to go out and buy new running shoes and begin putting in 30 miles a week? No. Let’s be honest, that’s not going to happen. But can you go for a walk with your spouse, friend or dog. Or you can take the stairs instead of the elevator. Small steps every day is the way.
