The US has seen an enormous increase in the number of people considered obese by the medical community. In fact many call it an obesity epidemic. To combat this we find all sorts of pharmaceutical companies selling the “quick fix” pills, powders, and lotions that do nothing to actually help people take the fat off and keep it off.
Of course the same could be said of the diet industry as well. There are many diets going around now you could pick one a month and in a years time still have more to choose from.
What is truly needed are some sensible proven weight loss tips that people can implement no real matter what their present physical condition is. That said let’s dive right in.
#1 Drink more water. Frequently Americans are borderline dehydrated and so their bodies are working on the water starvation reflex and not flushing the toxins and junk out.
#2 Eat more often. I bet you thought I would definitely say eat less. While it is true that to lose excess weight you need to eat less calories than you expend… you need to eat more often to get the metabolic furnace stoked up and burning right. Get it out of starvation mode.
#3 Move more. Depending on your physical condition you need to be moving more. Use the stairs rather than the elevator, park farther out from the office or the store, get a walk around the block, go dancing, play with your kids. Make it fun. Running is not the only path to burn more calories.
#4 Finally, determine your “Why.” Decide why you intend to discard fat. Make your reason big enough to motivate you through the slumps that invariably happen. Also work with a Coquitlam Personal Trainer who can motivate and guide you in your journey to achieving the perfect physique!
