Article For Winners: 11 Tips For Reaching a Goal Weight

Believe me, I know how hard it is to follow a strict routine of workouts and eating plans in order to get the body you want. I love eating, especially the things that put fat on my belly and thighs. I am far, far away from the desired beach body. That’s why I search motivation to make me stand up and work on that body. I will share with you several tips, that I know from my best friend, who is a fitness instructor. Check them out and I hope you will get yourself into business, and I also hope  that I will get myself into the business. So, here are the tips:

  1. The calories are important. Some specialists say that it is not important to follow the calorie intake if you eat the proper food, but it is important to match the proper food according to the calorie intake. You should go to your doctor and discuss a diet which will give you no more than 1,500 calories per day. For instance, one pound is about 3,500 calories, if you succeed in reducing these 3,500 calories for the week (which will make 500 calories reduced per day), you will lose 1 pound for that week. Combine physical activities and proper meals in order to achieve this goal. But remember, don’t go below 1,200 calories per day, because you will harm your health.

  2. The next step is to follow the food intake and the calories that it gives you. If you write down everything you put in your mouth, you will be able to control that amount of food and stop at some point. You can write the food in a list, or you can use a weight-loss app, which will track your calories and meals if you type them in the app.

  3. The next step to help you achieve the desired weight goal is to know the right portions, which means that you’ll have to measure everything in your meals – the dressing on the salad, the milk for the cereal and even the sauce for the chicken.

  4. More meals, but right foods. Organize your calories in 5 meals per day. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner and two snacks between them. Try to put the meals in 2-3 hour period. Don’t skip meals. You won’t win anything if you do so. If you eat the right food in the right portions, you will have no trouble with the amount of calories.

  5. You should create a rule about the meals you take. They must contain three main ingredients: protein, fiber and healthy carbohydrates. The first one will ease your hunger, the second one will detox your body and the third one will fill you up with energy.

  6. Another way to save calories is to switch some daily drinks and foods with others, that will bring you less calories, for instance: switch the soda/juice with water; if you add two slices of cheese to the sandwich, now add just one; switch the regular pasta to whole wheat one, etc.

  7. Everything works better if there is an organized plan about it. If you plan the meals for the whole week, you will have a huge success, because you will have packed food, which will be ready to be eaten and you won’t feel the need of grabbing a cookie as a snack.

  8. We all know that the eating plan is only one side of the magic. The other part is the physical activity. Find a cardio activity that you like and follow it at least 4 times per week, for minimum 40 minutes intense working out. Remember to stretch before and after the workout.

  9. If you want to lose more than just a pound, you will have to walk a long path before you reach the desired goal, so, make small goals and celebrate when you achieve them.

  10. Try to realize that there is no easy way to magically lose the needed pound. You have to create a habit and get into the routine properly.

  11. A great quality is to be stubborn. Workout against the pain and follow the eating plan. Try to remember why you are doing it and after all, find a way to enjoy it, because everything that is done with joy will be a successful thing.
