3 steps to lose weight permanently
When it comes to losing weight, there are no magic pills or secret diets that can help you achieve your weight loss goals. But with these 3 steps to losing weight, you can achieve your goals.
Like most things in life, losing weight (a lot of weight) comes down to conscious effort, discipline, determination and perseverance.
Losing 10, 20, 50 or 100 pounds or more all depends on what you do on a daily basis. If you do what you’re supposed to do (eat right + exercise) every day, you’ll eventually lose as much weight as you want.
However, if you throw caution to the wind and don’t do what you’re supposed to do, your weight loss dreams may never come true. That, my friend, is the saddest scenario there is.
If you are sick of being fat, if you are sick of being overweight, if you are ready to start your new life today then hang in there because I am about to give you the simple yet extremely effective weight loss plan you’ve been waiting for.
Are you ready? I’m going to tell you in 3 easy steps what you need to do to lose as much weight as you want. However, for this to work, you must maintain your focus and discipline each day to continue the steps until you get the results you want.
Even if you stall and deviate from your weight loss efforts, that’s okay. If you’re able to get back on track quickly, you’ll work overtime and reap the benefits of dramatic weight loss and improved health.
And now, without further ado, here are your 3 basic weight loss steps…
1. EAT LESS
2. EAT BETTER
There they are. What do you think? A bit anti-climatic, right? Maybe you expected more… Well, let me tell you, if you are able to conceive and implement this extremely safe and effective weight loss plan, you will never have to spend another unnecessary penny on weight loss products that don’t work ever again.
You see, your body is a finely tuned weight loss management machine. If you follow the right plan and only give your body what it needs to survive, it will do all the hard work for you.
If you have enough time and follow the 3 steps above, you can lose tens and even hundreds of pounds without starving yourself or resorting to fake weight loss pills or dangerous body contouring surgeries.
Now, that’s not to say that the road to significant weight loss will be easy or that you don’t have to suffer a bit to achieve your desired results. There will be days when you want to throw in the towel and give up.
On those days, you could just indulge your undeniable cravings and go nuts at your local artery-clogging all-you-can-eat buffet. But hey, that’s fine. You are a human being. Sometimes you have to go a little crazy to get back on track.
However, if you are truly determined to achieve even your most seemingly impossible weight loss goals, you can and will do so by following the plan above. Now, for your benefit, let’s dig a little deeper into each step of the plan.
1. EAT LESS
There’s really no doubt about it. If you want to lose weight, you have to start eating less. You need to create a calorie deficit for your body to start shedding pounds.
If you don’t begin to limit your food intake, even the amount of exercise won’t help you achieve your goals. Eating less of your favorite fatty, fat-filled foods will be the quickest route to dramatic weight loss.
It really doesn’t matter how much weight you need to lose. If you don’t control both your conscious and unconscious eating habits, you will have a hard time losing even one pound.
No, you need to start restricting your usual amount of food. I’ve heard stories of people going to Mc Donald’s and packing away two super-sized Big Mac meals.
This is of course far too much. In this situation, even cutting down to a super-size meal would be an improvement. But as we’ll see in our next step, a better plan would be to ditch the super-size meal altogether and eat better.
2. EAT BETTER
As the saying goes, “We are what we eat.” If we eat crap, you know what? However, if we learn to eat well, not only will our waistlines thank us, but we’ll feel better too.
One of the quickest changes you can make to your diet when trying to lose weight is to get rid of all that junk food you may be used to (chips, soda, pizza, donuts, cookies, etc.). and eat more vegetables.
Now I know what you might be thinking. You may still be traumatized because your mom won’t let you get up from the dinner table until you’ve eaten all your broccoli, but let me tell you, your mom was right.
If you can fill half your plate with fiber and nutrient-dense vegetables at every meal, you’re well on your way to significant and long-lasting weight loss. This is probably one of the easiest things you can do to really jumpstart your weight loss journey.
While it may not be easy to eat veggies with every meal, the sooner you start, the better off you will become and the faster the weight will melt off your body.
To kickstart your weight loss adventure, you need to get your body moving. I don’t care if it’s exercise, gym, aerobics or whatever the point, you have to be doing something to get your heart rate up and your sweat glands working overtime.
Exercise is the key to sustainable, long-lasting and real weight loss. For every pound you lose by eating right and exercising, that’s another pound that will never haunt you again.
Why? Because now you know the “secret” to safe and effective weight loss. If you ever feel like you’re crawling back onto that dreaded fat scale, all you have to do is put these 3 steps into action and watch as you stabilize and counter any unwanted weight gain.
By exercising regularly, you give your body the energy boost it needs to boost your metabolism and lose weight efficiently and effectively every day. I’m not thinking about you, but that sounds damn good to me.
The more you exert yourself physically, the faster you will notice changes in your body. You may not need to work out with a personal trainer every day, but you do need to do something.
Be it walking, running, swimming, biking, hiking or any other physical activity you love to do, start now. Don’t spend another night on the couch watching the latest reruns. Get your body pumping and start losing weight today.
Losing weight (even a lot) isn’t rocket science. So rest assured that anyone can do it, even you. However, it requires all the patience, discipline, determination and perseverance you can muster.
Start slow. Take it one day at a time. You may not reach your ideal weight in a week, a month, or even a year, but stick with it and get there however you want. By following the 3 steps above, you too can become a success story like so many before you.
So go ahead and start shedding all that unwanted weight that years of undisciplined living have left behind. Take control of your life starting today. You’ll soon be glad you did. When that day comes, there will be no turning back.
