Are you looking into the different ways that can help you to lose weight? Have you tried a number of different diets in the past but still find yourself being overweight? Are you fed up with being fat? Do you yearn the day when you can buy the type of clothes that you really want? If you have answered yes to any of these questions then this article could well prove to be of benefit to you.
I am somebody who until a few years ago would have answered yes to all of the above questions. I had tried many forms of diet, I would buy clothes that suited my size rather than the clothes I actually wanted to wear. I was without doubt fed up with being fat and was desperate to find a way of losing weight which would last.
In my opinion the answer to all of weight problems was quite simple. I do not need any fancy diet, what I needed to do was to think in a logical way. I first of all had to ask myself a number of questions:
Question. Why are you overweight?
Answer: I eat far too much food and drink far too much alcohol. The food that I do eat is basically fat food such as crisps, chocolate, takeaways and microwave food. I also do very little exercise, therefore I do not give my body a chance to burn off some of this fat. I tend to rarely walk anywhere, I prefer to drive.
Question. Why have you been unsuccessful with your past dieting attempts?
Answer: I did not really follow the program. I may have done for the short term but certainly did not over the longer term. I also gave into temptations by eating food types which I was not really supposed to.
Question. How much do you want to lose this excess weight?
Answer. A huge amount.
Question. So why do you not follow the dieting programs to the letter?
Answer. I am weak, I suppose.
As you can see, the answers to my weight issues are in the answers to these questions. Quite simply I need to:
Be more disciplined
Be more determined
Walk and exercise a lot more
Eat in a much more healthy way
Cut down my intake of alcohol
Stick to the above for the long term
A couple of years ago I started to implement my new logical form of diet and I am happy to report that I am now at a size that I am happy with.
