There are many weight loss blogs posts, quick tips, and 15 days diet plans etc. Do you think these weight loss plans really work? Or it is a myth? I have presented some of my observations that will help you. If you are one of those who want to lose your weight without putting effort, then this blog is not for you. But if you are the one who is determined, willing, passionate and decided to churn your extra fat and you are the one who promises to yourself that with continuous efforts, the consistent practice you will make yourself lose weight, then this article is for you.
I have done some research on weight loss by visiting and reading most of the articles and blogs published by various fitness experts and by some of the famous writers and some blogs by visiting some weight loss posts and tips and tricks to lose weight but I believe that rather working on these it is better to follow a consistent workout along with a proper diet continuously for at least 6 months to one year to see a considerable amount of transformation in your weight loss journey.
First thing I have done to reduce my weight was to become passionate about myself, determined to lose weight, with the full motivation that this is the only way I have with me at the moment to reduce my weight.
My weight loss journey started when I was 47 years and realised that this is a perfect time, speaking to myself “Now or Never”, this is how I started my weight loss journey.
I kept a target for myself to reduce at least 5 kg within 60 days. And the following workout doing continuously for 60 days.
1. Workout for Weight loss
Once you are determined and passionate about your weight loss journey, you have to create a basic workout plan for yourself. The best way to start is the journey by WALKING even if it is walking for at least 30 minutes in the morning is good and if you are able to get some time during lunch while you are in the office or in your workplace start walking in the office corridor or instead of using lift try to use steps till you are comfortable to climb the step and then you can take the lift but remember that first 15 days don’t exert yourself too much try to be comfortable while walking.
You must be consistent if you are serious to reduce your weight. Later once you are consistent with walking try to start with exercises also which includes, stretching, jogging, etc.
First, start with walking for at least 30 minutes daily. Along with you can select the diet plan suggested in this blog.
2. Select low carb diet
Eating is not bad but eating the right quantity of food your body needs is most important. This is the basic plan you can start with this. Once you plan your weight loss journey start by reducing sugar and food which are high in starch like bread, potatoes etc. I understand that it is very difficult to stop eating sugar immediately. You can reduce sugar eating slowly. If you search on the web you will find a number of ideas for weight loss diet plan. Even modern research has proven these simple methods.
Start by following this diet plan
3. Eat only when you are Very Hungry
Bungie eating has become a habit even when you are not hungry. Try to eat only when you are very hungry or if you feel you cannot live without eating. Eating too much carbohydrate foods may affect your weight, so try to eat fewer carb foods. Without being hungry most of the time we start eating especially while enjoying our favourite shows on Television. Avoid munching food while watching in front of the TV or enjoying your favourite show on Netflix.
4. Reduce dairy products
Dairy products like cheese, cream we tend to munch even though we are not hungry but tempted by the juicy taste of creams.
5. Sleep and take less stress
Living a stress-free life is near to impossible these days. Especially during this pandemic, the stress level has risen almost to every human. Instead of watching mobile phones for long hours is stressful for our eyes and indirectly affect our sleep also. Try to finish your tasks and sleep so that you can get adequate 8 to 9 hours of continuous sleep.
Mostly people face lack of sleep, due to late night checking the status and posts on Instagram, Facebook and even WhatsApp chat. Try to take at least 8 hours of sleep.
Sleep deprivation also increases sugar cravings and adversely affect.
6. Stop using Alcohol
Consuming alcohol is harmful to your body. Due to a large number of toxins consumed it may take a long time for your body to detoxify. It is best if you avoid consuming any alcohol products, apart from the recommendation of your doctors.
Try to do some meditation. Meditation helps to develop more focus and also calm your mind.
