Losing Weight One Pound at a Time!

 


Over two-thirds of American adults are overweight or obese.  That’s quite a high percentage of adults who have a need to shed a little or a lot of fat!  The only way to do this is one pound at a time!

Many overweight individuals wish and hope for a quick cure to their weight problems.  They’ll try anything that promises instant results!  Unfortunately, these ‘miracle weight loss’ products are scams!  They may help a person shed some water weight, initially.  But, the fat isn’t going anywhere without a little effort on that person’s part!


For those of you who have tried weight loss diets or are thinking about trying one, consider all the dieters who have tried the same diets and failed.  The number one reason for permanent weight loss failure is the inability to stick with the diet!


Many individuals become ‘yo-yo’ dieters.  They try one diet for awhile, lose a few pounds, quit the diet, gain back the weight (and then some), and move on to another diet.  The process is repeated.  With each new attempt, there is often more weight to lose than there was initially!  


Successful Weight Loss Strategies


If you want to lose weight successfully, you must realize, first, that there are no miracle diets or products that will blast away the fat!  You didn’t gain the weight overnight!  You aren’t going to lose it overnight, either!  You will have to put forth effort to lose the fat, one pound at a time!  Even after you’ve shed those extra pounds, you will have to continue to work at controlling your weight, if you wish to keep the fat off! 


In an article on Consumer Reports.org which rates various popular diets, Cathy Nonas, R.D., M.S., (an obesity researcher at North General Hospital in New York) states, “The best diet is the one you can stay on.”  Consumer Reports goes on to say that “adherence is important…To maintain lost weight, dieters must permanently reduce their calorie intake, because they will need fewer calories to fuel their now-smaller body.”


Fad diets typically fail in the end.  From my own personal experience, I have found that eating sensibly works best!  If you want to lose weight (one pound at a time), keep it off, and feel good, too, why not try cutting down on the empty calories found in most American diets?  Eat more raw vegetables and fruits and whole grains.  Go easy on the fats and processed sugary or salty snacks.  Limit yourself to smaller portions and avoid having second helpings.  This type of diet is one that you CAN stick with and live with for the rest of your life!

 

Yes, you’ll have to make a few lifestyle changes, and you’ll have to work on being more disciplined in your eating habits.  But, in the end, it will be worth it!  You’ll look better!  You’ll feel better!  Your confidence will return, and you’ll believe that there isn’t anything that you cannot do!  


Wouldn’t it be worth giving up that 44-ounce Coke and that huge order of greasy French fries for a healthier, happier you?  If you simply can’t do without a few French fries and a Coke now and then, go ahead and treat yourself to a small serving.  Cut back on calories somewhere else that day.  Occasionally, it’s okay to indulge.  But, if you seriously want to shed the extra fat and keep it off, be conscious about everything you put into your mouth.  You’ll lose that weight, a pound at a time!  



Note: Before beginning any weight loss program, be sure to check with your medical professional.

Different Types of Diets Part 1 - Atkins Diet

  What Is The Atkins Diet? The Atkins weight loss diet is based on one simple principle: Your body burns both carbohydrates and fat for calories. If you reduce the amounts of carbohydrates available, it will burn more fat and you will lose weight.     According to Atkins, calories are unimportant. The key to losing weight is to restrict the carbohydrates that you eat and force the body to turn to its stored fat as an energy source. As proof of this, proponents of the Atkins Diet point to the following facts derived from research:     * When the body doesn't have enough carbohydrate, it will use ketenes derived from fat as energy.  * You can eat more food and lose more weight on a low carbohydrate diet than you can on a low fat diet.  * You crave less food when you eat fewer carbohydrates.  * By eating fewer carbohydrates, people tend to eat fewer calories without counting them.  * The greater the difference between fat and carbohydrate, the greater the weight loss.

Lifestyle Dynamic Journey - Franklin Square, NY

Small towns can offer a lot.  Like hidden gems where you least expect them.  Sometimes they are just small towns with nothing to offer.  Franklin Square, NY isn't one of the latter.  I don't say this because I live here, I say it because it is a melting pot of culture and heritage.  So many mixed families have come to call this town their home.  A definite change from the decades ago I once knew.  The more this town changes, the more I like it.  When you bring in new families with new cultures, you bring in new businesses that offer things not seen before.  To some that can be threatening, but to the open minded (or those of mixed decent) it is welcoming and exciting actually.   What is now Franklin Square was near the center of the Hempstead Plains, and used as grazing land, and later farmland, by the first white settlers. The southern portion included oak and dogwood forests. In late 1643, Robert Fordham and John Carman made a treaty with members of the Massapequak, Meric
