Weight Loss Fitness Programs

By Dale Morin

As we traveled through life most of us come to a point when we decide that it would be in our best interest, whether to look better in a bathing suit or for health reasons, to lose a couple pounds. Sometimes we attempt this on our own and sometimes we turn to specifically designed and structured weight-loss programs that promise us instant weight-loss or the support we desire and need in order to become successful.

The weight loss industry is a multi-billion-dollar industry that has been successful because of the standard Western diet which engages people with high processed foods, high amounts of fat and protein hands low numbers of fruits and vegetables. This lifestyle has led to an enormous amount of people who are obese or overweight.

In response to individuals who are overweight and desire a healthier lifestyle multiple companies and manufacturers have come out with weight-loss programs, weight loss pills, weight loss drinks and weight-loss lifestyles. Individuals who seek out weight loss programs also desire of the support systems that come along with them. Research has shown that individuals who receive support during their weight-loss efforts are more successful than those who attempt to do it on their own.

Some of the more prominent weight-loss programs include Nutrisystem, Weight Watchers, South Beach diet, Atkins diet, Jenny Craig, and online sites such as Diet.com. Each of these plans has their own positive and negative factors which affect the individual who is attempting to lose weight. For instance, using the South Beach diet individuals follow program which has been outlined in the book. They do their own grocery shopping and food preparation and can receive support through local support groups or online support groups. On the other hands, those who follow the Nutrisystem diet are supplied their food in frozen form with the recommended editions of fruits and vegetables from the grocery store. This requires less preparation and less effort but also relies on becoming satisfied with food that is mass-produced, flash frozen and mailed to your front door.

Some programs will make specific promises, such as the Medifast promise of weight-loss of up to 20 pounds in one month. This program is often supervised by your primary care physician because it requires a specific amount of fasting, reduced caloric intake that may or may not cause significant changes in any other underlying medical condition.

However, new rules and regulations that govern advertising now make it difficult for programs to make specific claims about what they can and cannot do for an individual unless they are willing to back it up with a money back guarantee. Any program is only as good as the individual who follows it. In other words, weight loss can be achieved without a program or with a program but it requires the action of the individual who wishes to achieve the weight loss before anything can happen at all.

Some individuals find the support system of Weight Watchers to be the best option available for them. Weight watchers now has an online program in which the individual can sign up online, learn their point system and gain support all from the comfort of their own home using a computer and Internet access. Others find it much more beneficial to attend a meeting where they are supported in person by other people in the same position they are.

Whenever weight-loss program you choose, or don’t choose, make sure that the basic tenets of the program fit your particular lifestyle or the lifestyle that you believe you can choose to follow. Don’t make too many changes all at once because research has found that unless you have large amounts of support systems set up both for your lifestyle changes and if your personal life, large amounts of dietary changes instantaneously often end up failing.

For those of us who are focused on specific weight-loss or are highly motivated individuals there is a program which will fit your lifestyle and the choices you choose to make. It is only through the specific action, perseverance and motivation that any goal is achieved. And, weight loss is a goal that is truly not different than any other.
