Some Ideas For Achieving Weight Loss

By Richard J McDonald

Adverts on television are always advising us of the latest high fat snack that tastes so great we must try it. The supermarkets are full of high calorie foods that look very appealing when you are hungry and shopping. With all this food it is not surprising that most people weigh a few more pounds than they would like. Weight loss is achievable with some easy adjustments to diet.

Keeping a food diary can make it easy to see the downfalls in someones daily diet. Try writing down everything that you eat for a few days, and do not miss anything out. You may be shocked to realise just how much you really eat.

Once you have done this exercise then it should be easy to see the types of foods that you most often eat. What are these foods and are they good for you or are they bad for you. Start to think about what kinds of foods you could eat instead that you think would be better for you.

If it is something like chocolate that you crave, then would a piece of fresh fruit fill the gap instead, or just have one square of dark chocolate and some fruit instead of a whole bar. If it is chips then would a small handful of almonds, or some other unroasted and unsalted nuts be a suitable substitute. Go through your whole diet in this way and try to replace unhealthy foods with healthier or lower fat versions, such as lower fat cheeses, yogurts and margarines and spreads.

If you are unsure of what kinds of foods to substitute then ask a nutritionist to overhaul your diet for you. They can give you advice on how to achieve a steady weight loss while maintaining or improving your health. There are a lot of low fat, low sugar and low salt food options now available in most stores that can really help you to lose weight without cutting out all the foods that you love.

If you find it difficult to lose weight on your own then why not think about joining a slimming group. These days you can join a group where you all meet up for a weekly weigh in. If this does not fit in with a busy lifestyle then there are plenty of online groups where you can record your weight loss at a time that suits you.

Lots of people want to offer advice for weight loss, so it is just a question of asking for their help. The benefits of being a healthy weight are well documented, as it helps to lower the chance of getting a major disease so that life is longer and fuller. It just takes a change in attitude to achieve.
