Eating less - It’s no brainer that if you want to lose weight you have to eat less. After all, you didn’t get to be overweight by eating too little and exercising a lot. Jumping on a diet is a solution but not a permanent one and not one I personally encourage anyone to do unless medically prescribed by a doctor due to medical reasons. Instead I encourage developing a healthy relationship with oneself and with food.
Decrease Stress - A large percentage of people trying to lose weight are stressed. Stress is one of the major reasons why many people world wide are over weight due to emotional compulsions. Meditation, exercise and other forms of relations are highly encourage for you to start de-stressing and improving your relationship with your self and food.
Research - Often people go online to seek nutrition advice and only get more stressed and confused. Talk to a professional in your area about how to approach weight loss for you and your lifestyle the smartest and most sustainable way. Whenever you want to change something in your life you learn more about it, right? Well researching someone that can help you is a great sustainable weight loss approach as it will keep you accountable and without often doubt. Research and questions new things you don’t know in order to approach your professional with questions they might know how to help you with.
Motivation & Inspiration - You won’t lose weight if you act of your feelings. Humans use more emotional intelligence than intellectual intelligence and are guided by how they feel. “I Feel tired, I feel hungry, etc…” Inspire to have an ultimate and realistic goal and motivate yourself daily to reach your desires. Don’t just wish for it to happen, start changing your mindset to actually make it happen.
Activity Type - Be realistic with that you are doing. Doing pilates and yoga won’t be the most efficient way of movements that you body will burn fat with. At first it will be challenging mentally and physically, but get yourself involved in both a weight lifting / strength training and cardiovascular program that pushes you to your limits. At first you won’t like it because your body isn’t used to it, but with time you will see the benefits of your hard work.
