Adherence To Diet For Effective Weight Loss

Today more than ever there is so much information out there on losing weight that  has become very confusing and sometimes difficult to follow. It is actually very easy to stick to your weight loss diet if you follow Medshape Weight Loss Clinic’s 7 principles.

  1. Before you can start any diet program you need to be in the right frame of mind. This means you have actually come to terms with the idea that you need help to get your extra weight off. Committing yourself to a lifestyle change for the long run. Make a pact with yourself everyday that you are ready, willing and able to to do this, you WANT this. You are motivated and feel good about it. If you do not feel good about yourself you probably will not want to choose healthy foods and stick to the the fad diets that seem to be fast, unhealthy and a waste of money. You cannot expect the act of going on a diet to make you feel better about yourself or an overnight success. The key to keep your weight off is to commit to yourself that your WANT a lifestyle change. Following this change will stop the yo-yo and money wasting ways of keeping you healthy.

  2. Learn more about who your ancestors were. If you eat more like your ancestors you will be eating food that is better for your body. You will likely lose weight, have more energy and feel great. It has been shown when a group of people stop eating the food that was indigenous to them they start gaining weight and having health problems. Look at your personal family genes and see if there is a history of high blood pressure, diabetes or thyroid disorder. If so, chances are you also carry that gene which is a danger when obesity plays a role.

  3. Eat whole foods that are as natural as possible. When you eat whole foods that are full of nutrients your body will know how much to eat and how much not to eat. You do not have to count calories because your body is a wonderful machine. If given the right nutrients you will be at the best weight for you, have plenty of energy and feel great. Eating highly processed empty calorie foods will cause your body to always be hungry because it ís trying to get the nutrients it needs. Stay away from juicing or taking a food in it’s natural element and breaking it down. Doing this will remove fiber which will raise the carbs and sugars. This will equal more body fat instead of losing body fat.

  4. Drink the best weight loss supplement known to man, water! Most people do not know the difference from being hungry for food or thirsty for water. A great deal of times people eat when they should drink. Most likely you will not feel as hungry if you are getting enough water. You will be satisfying the thirst, which is confused for hunger. Water also helps you digest food better. Drinking water before you eat will help you lose cravings by filling the stomach and creating a satisfaction result. You will be pleasantly surprised on how much sugar and refined foods your body will not want. As the doctor ordered, a healthy intake of water is at least 64 ounces per day. Most of us today do not come close to a proper water intake for a healthy weight loss. Make this a concentration and always have a water bottle with you.

  5. Always chew your food well. Chewing your food well will ensure that you get the most pleasure of actually tasting what you are eating along with receiving the most nutrients out of your food. Getting the most nutrients will satisfy your body therefore you will eat less. Another benefit of chewing well is that it helps your body aid in the digestion period.

  6. Eat small, frequent meals in a day. Larger meals tax your digestion system which makes it work harder. Taking too much time in between meals will start to mess with your brain signals and send out the “I need food now! I don’t care what it is, just FEED me” message. Do not put yourself in a position that can give you strong urges to not stick to a healthy kind of eating that promotes a harmonious weight loss.

  7. Increase your physical activity. Many people are over weight because of a lack of physical activity. Start walking more, bicycling, walk your dog for longer periods of time, swim, dance and leave the car at home when you can. Park at the furthest spot in a parking lot, walk the stairs instead of taking the elevator. It is important that you choose a physical activity that you enjoy because you will stick with it. Choosing a physical activity purely based on the fact that it burns a lot of calories may be a mistake. Think of what you enjoy. A great tip is do not an activity that hurts. This is tell tale sign your body is not ready for that you are trying to put it through. Remember to keep your heart rate at a fat burning pace. Cardio mode (high heart rate) will build muscle instead of cause a rapid fat loss.

Lastly, find a buddy or coach to keep you accountable and motivated. Statistics show that after two weeks of trying to lose weight on your own, you will fall right back into your old routines.
