And now on to our DIY tips...
#1 Establish goals
What are your weight loss goals? How much do you want to lose? How quickly do you want to lose it? It’s vital to set goals. That way you can customize a plan to achieve them.
#2 Track your calories
You lose weight by burning more calories than you consume. Know how much you burn and how much you eat. That way your weight loss plan can be centered on making smart healthy eating choices and planning exercise or other activities.
It may seem like a real pain in the butt at first, and it is until you’re used to it, but tracking really is essential for your ultimate success.
#3 Healthy Eating and Exercise
The only way to ensure sustainable weight loss is to make healthy lifestyle changes. That means eating vegetables, fruits, whole grains and lean protein. It also means exercising, not just for weight loss, but also for better health.
#4 Stay Focused
Staying focused on your goals is a surefire way to attain them. Create smaller goals that help you reach your larger goal. For example, strive to lose a pound or two a week rather than aiming to lose 50 pounds.
It’s easier to stay motivated when you’re regularly achieving success.
#5 Embrace Your Community
There are a number of resources available to you both online and off. These resources can help you to build a community of exercisers. They can provide a wealth of valuable fitness, diet and health information to get you started.
-More importantly, they can also help to keep you motivated.
If DIY isn’t for you, there are a multitude of diets to choose from. Try to pick one that focuses on healthy eating for long-term success. Add-in as much exercise as you can, for your health as much as for the weight loss!
And always keep a Healthy Attitude!
