The trick is finding the right program that works for you and will help you maintain the weight loss.

Losing weight is a lifestyle change and first on the list to change is your diet. One way is to monitor the food you eat before you start your diet, this will help in recognizing some of your more frivolous eating habits. By doing this you could immediately start cutting out calories by substituting water instead of soda, healthy snacks instead of candy etc… Eating 5-6 small meals a day instead of 2-3 big meals helps in keeping your body satisfied and will also build up your metabolism so your body will burn more calories. The biggest part of any diet is to know and monitor what you are eating, knowledge is king knowing that 1 gram of carbs contains 4 calories and 1 gram of protein contains 4 calories. This is why you should seek the advice of a nutritionist if at all possible to ensure a healthy diet that is right for you.

Nobody can expect to lose weight and maintain the weight loss without exercise. Diet and exercise go hand and hand to safely lose and maintain weight loss. It is proven that people who exercise 60-90 minutes a day have long term success in their weight loss, so giving up one hour does not seem like a big deal if you can keep the weight off. You should consult a physician before starting any exercise routine.

The number one reason people stop dieting and exercise programs is motivation; it is very easy to stay motivated for the short term it is much harder to stay motivated over the long haul. Losing and maintaining weight loss is a long process and experts agree that a healthy amount of weight to lose is 1-2 pounds per week on average. To keep motivated set long and short term goals and remember that you are doing this for a healthier you so stay positive.

Many people choose to use diet pills to lose weight, while many diet pills especially prescription diet pills are only designed to be used for the short term and have many side effects.  These side effects can cause some very serious conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, and more; people who are trying to lose weight probably should not be taking these pills. There are some over the counter diet pills that have gotten good reviews and are safer than prescription diet pills there are no magic beans and all these pills need to be used along with diet and exercise.

You should always consult a physician before starting any weight loss program or using any diet pill. Good luck and stay motivated!
