Do you want to lose weight? Of course you do, otherwise you
wouldn't be reading this. Let me ask you another question.
For how long do you want to lose weight?
Just for the summer to look good in bikini? Or before winter
Holidays to make some room for the turkey and mashed
If you want to do that go ahead and pick one of the fad
diets. Starve yourself for a week or two and then, after a
moment of glory is over and you have been admired in a new
dress, go ahead and turn back into a pumpkin. Because that's
exactly the shape your body will gradually take if you
decide to make your life a series of multiple diets.
Now if your goal is to discover your true beauty hidden
underneath those multiple layers of fat, to look good, and
to feel great, you will have to make permanent changes in
It sounds hard, but it's actually much easier than sitting
on those horrible diets constantly fighting your urges and
refusing yourself little sweets you like so much.
I know it, because I've been there myself. The worst thing
was that I used to work part time as a cashier at the
bakery. You couldn't imagine how miserable my life was at
that moment. Every time I would decide to sit on another fad
diet, bakers would "accidentally" put extra cherry filling
into those cherry strudels. And no matter what time I would
show up for my shift I would always have to witness them
getting fresh baked cookies out of the oven.
Sometimes it seemed like everyone was doing it on purpose,
just to brake me and destroy that little willpower I had
left. Now I realize that it was my fault for wanting fast
results, but not wanting to follow through.
The key to losing weight and keeping it off is the right
It is about finding the right balance between the food that
is both delicious and full of vitamins, and exercise that's
fun and energizing. Sounds good, doesn't it? And the best
thing is that by making small changes on a daily basis,
you'll not only look great, you will also make your tummy
very happy and your family proud.
If you're serious about loosing weight you have to commit to
the new healthy lifestyle.
No one week diets.
No "do-nothing-and-lose-30-pounds-in-a-week" pills.
No magic pants that mysteriously melt fat away.
No quick fix solutions.
The ONLY thing that works is lifestyle change. Not for
another two weeks, but for the rest of your life! For as
long as you want to stay slim and healthy.
When lifestyle is healthy then weight normalization becomes
one of many positive effects that occur over time.
Changing your lifestyle doesn't have to be difficult. All
you have to do is to follow 4 simple steps:
First step - to get motivated. (Yes, without motivation and
burning desire you won't go further than one week of healthy
lifestyle. So the first thing we need to do is to get fired
Second step - change your diet. (No, you don't have to
starve to death and count calories or carbs. Just follow
basic principles of healthy eating.)
Third step - start exercising. (Don't get out of tune,
exercising the right way is actually fun!)
Fourth step - stay on track. (The most difficult part of
loosing weight and maintaining a healthy lifestyle is to
stay on track and don't quit.)
If you really want to get rid of all extra pounds here's a
little task for you. Take a piece of paper and write down
all the reasons why you want to lose weight. The more the
better. Try to come up with at least 15 reasons why.
Don't put it off. Take the first step to your beautiful and
