Being overweight can cause health related issues. Studies have shown that being overweight leads to hypertension, cardiac troubles, sleep apnea, diabetes and more.
Is there any doubt why we are all searching for that perfect diet that will help us shed those extra pounds?
You need to take charge here and not follow every little piece of advice you hear or read. Most diets want you to reduce your food intake and stop snacking.
It’s important that you don’t reduce your food intake to quickly, or it could adversely effect your health. As a rule of thumb a healthy weight loss diet plan includes fresh fruits and vegetables, low-fat dairy products and whole grains, along with drinking a lot of water, at least 8-10 glasses a day.
Be careful though. You may have other needs that your doctor will want you to be aware of. Maybe you have high potassium or you are a diabetic or certain foods or a lack of them cause other problems.
Didn’t know it would be this hard, did you? 🙂 Relax. One of the rules I follow is to stop those second helpings. Yep, I cheat from time to time but it’s really not that difficult to do once you put your mind to it.
On the days I run I allow myself an unhealthy snack. But that’s me and it’s certainly not something I would advocate.
Decide what you want to achieve. Now check out some of the links here and see which program might or might not work for you. You’ll find good advice and much of it is free.
Or do like I do and eat what you like but don’t overdo it. I do highly recommend you discuss any change with your doctor.
But you have to include exercise in your lifestyle. You have to. A sedentary life is not a good thing.
Check this site for plenty of different exercises and get to work. No, seriously. Turn off the computer and go exercise. Everything will be here when you return.
