You open your computer and you get millions of different advertisements popping on the sidelines, some of them claiming to fight your weight issues. These very common ads claim to “Reduce weight in 10 days”, “Ten minutes to tighter tummy” mantra, and the list goes on. Well people, first of all, these claims are anything but true. If you ask a person who has lost weight in his/her past, then you would know that losing weight is a constant work, even if the weight lost is just five pounds; and sorry to break you people’s hearts, weight-loss is not easy work too.
Here are some facts that the diet industry or any other claimers will hesitate in telling you, the ultimate weight loss secrets:
#1 You really have to exercise
And that too more than you actually think. It is said that an average person has to exercise at least for thirty minutes a day. But if you are looking forward to losing weight then it’s probably twice as much. It could be easy, simple- a “daily-life”- kind of thing, like taking the stairs, gardening, walking to the store, et cetera.
#2 If you exercise for half an hour, it doesn’t make you a suitable candidate for a brownie
This may sound harsh but, well, it is true. If you convince yourself into eating a brownie because you just successfully had a walk for full thirty minutes, then let me stop you right there: you are wrong. Well, now you are fairly allowed to treat yourself now and then while on a diet but that doesn’t give you a permission to eat your way into the calories every time you successfully complete an exercise.
#3 Actually, you have time to exercise
Many people successfully avoid exercising by blaming the time, which they don’t get enough of it. In fact, you do have a plenty of time to exercise. If one has time to read blogs, check their e-mails, watch rom-coms, then they have plenty of time to exercise. They just have to re-adjust their priorities, and put exercising higher on the list if they want to succeed.
#4 Your body works against you
There are many cases where we have seen that a person can easily gain weight, but when it comes to losing the same, it is rather difficult. This is due to the way our body adapted to old times, when food was not so easy to come by, which is quite hard to explain. In this era, where food is abundant, our taste buds totally pull us towards energy-dense food, which is high in calories, and since we tend to eat more, well it’s obvious.
Moreover, people after weight loss, develop a tendency for storing fat, as a later fuel, thus making it hard for them to maintain their weight. Only tip for them, be diligent.
#5 Your diet is your life
Once you decide that you have to go on a mission of losing weight, the diet becomes your life. You just do not give up on your diet once you achieved you’re a desired body type. You have to stick to the diet if you desire to stick to the weight.
