When searching for free tips to lose weight the first thing you should consider is whether or not the person giving the advice has actually ever lost any weight themselves. It’s all very well someone repeating what they’ve read in a magazine or what a friend of theirs told them works, but if you’re going to give yourself the greatest chance of success when it comes to weight loss I strongly suggest you look to someone who has actually experienced what you’re going through.
Luckily for you, I have.
These free tips to help you lose weight therefore are based on my own experiences of what really worked in the real world for me. I can’t of course, guarantee they will work for you, but I think they have a pretty good chance because I’ve seen the results that I got from them.
Free Tip #1 – Focus Is Everything
We’d all like to lose weight. It’s one of the most searched-for things on the Internet yet so many people find it incredibly difficult to achieve. In my opinion this is down to the the fact that most people are focusing on other things while the weight loss aspect fo their lives just sort of sits in the background.
The people who succeed at weight loss make it their number one priority in life. Everything fits around their weight loss program, rather than the other way around. If needs be, they’ll miss a TV show they like to get to the gym and do their workout. If they have to, they’ll forego a night out so they’re not tempted to eat junk food. Their social life is arranged around their diet and exercise plan rather than being squeezed in at the end almost as an afterthought.
So if you want to lose weight – put it front and centre. Decide what food you should eat and what exercise you’ll get and make that your main focus. Don’t let *anything* get in your way.
Free Tip #2 – Make It Automatic
The problem with many diet and exercise plans is they require too much thought and preparation. I recommend using a program that makes it easy for you to stay on track. For example, a fitness program where you go to the gym on the same days each week, at the same time and do pretty much the same exercises. Those that require different exercises each week or different workout days can be hard to get used to because there is no logical pattern to them.
The same goes with your diet. Spend a week before you begin your diet properly trying out all the different foods that are allowed so you can generate a shortlist of your favourites, discover how to prepare them and even where abouts in the supermarket you’ll find them. Look at portion sizes so you don’t have to go to all the trouble of counting calories but can just estimate a suitable portion size easily and monitor youe diet that way. Work out some easy snacks that will help fill a hole if you get hungry mid-morning at work etc.
