Weight Loss : In A Hurry ?
Weight Loss : In A Hurry ?
The fact that there are so many people who want to lose weight but
end up failing every time must lead to just one thing "An analysis
of the Technique that they are following to lose weight" .
Infact most of us want to lose weight immediately . Yes it can be done .
But How ?
Even if you are in a hurry , spending an hour on planning it is well worth
the time spent .You will reap the benefits in results you get and certainly reduce
your chances of a failed attempt .
How To Start :
Even before you set your goals on how much weight you want to lose weight every
week or every quarter you must decide the technique that you want to follow . Your
options are dieting , exercising , NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming ), or a mix of
these . Exercising and Dieting make a useful combination . Also you can use NLP
effectively with any of dieting or exercising or both to increase your
effectiveness . For those unfamiliar with NLP , these are instructions for your
mind to follow , i.e programming the mind with skillful use of language so that it
assists you in losing weight. It is very important to choose what you find easier
to do because chances of your sticking to the technique that you really like are
greater . Personally I would go for a combination of dieting and Yoga to lose
weight because it has helped me lose weight on a more permanent basis .
Carry On :
Once you have have made the choice it is important to carry on till you have the
weight that you would be proud of . Once there it is importanat to come up with a
long term plan to stay there on that mark be it 65 or 75 kg .Even if you are the
busiest person on earth you can always take out an hour every alternate day for a
walk , your treadmill , cycling , skating or anything that can move your arms and
legs in any possible direction . Any bodily movement takes energy , the more
movements you can make the better .
Jogging and brisk walking could be done if you are uncomfortable running .
Travel a certain distance one day and increase it every day by 100 mtrs .
At the end of the month you would have increased your endurance by upto 300 to 400
% . Infact any exercise you do just stretch your self a bit more than the previous
day because your body is perfectly capable of it . Infact you will enjoy the
challenge and so will your muscles . It is very important that you enjoy what you
do otherwise why bother doing it ?
There are infact so many techniques that there is always something you will enjoy .
I would recommend indulding in a sporting activity that you enjoy . It does not
have to be golf or horse riding , it could be any thing simpler which keeps you
moving , be it football , badminton , cricket , or swimming . And yes what better
than swimming if you know it . Even if you do not what stops you from learning to
do it .
Keep It Simple :
Losing weight is not such a monumental task . Its not at all hard . I have lost 15
kgs over 2 months and I can tell you that it was a breeze . The simple logic is "
Every movement , physical or mental consumes energy . You are adding alories when
you eat . As long as the sum of energy consumed by each of those movements is
greater than your calorie intake you lose , otherwise you gain " .
So move a lot and control the calories , you have won the battle .
