Here Are Ten Rules to Follow If You Want to Lose Weight Safely and For Good


You have nothing left to motivate you to exercise and get in shape but the additional weight on your body. You want to find safe and effective solutions for long-term weight loss. Don’t fret; things are under control now. Here are my top ten suggestions for a healthy weight loss program that will keep the weight off for good.

Before I start bawling, I want to highlight one key takeaway from my many failed attempts to shed pounds. You cannot expect to follow a healthy diet and lose 10 pounds in a week. Don’t let that ruin it for you. I’m telling you this so that you won’t give up if your first week of implementing my suggestions yields less-than-spectacular results. What I can promise, however, is that you will lose weight steadily and healthfully over time without sacrificing your fitness level. I attempted it and was successful. In just 9 months, I went from 170 to 112 pounds. I hope the following advice will help you, as it has helped me, to get the physique of your dreams.

One essential piece of advice: check the calorie count.

Always check the portion size and calorie count while buying food at the store. Don’t forget to tally up the daily caloric intake. It’s an ancient adage that gaining weight happens when caloric intake surpasses energy expenditure. The recommended daily caloric intake is between 1500 and 2000. Some people try to lose weight by consuming fewer calories than they burn, but I can tell you from experience that this strategy never lasts more than a week for me. While on the calorie-restriction diet, I experienced weariness and even sadness. If you care about your health, you shouldn’t do it. However, one effective strategy for reducing excess weight is to keep a food diary. Pay attention to it, but don’t let it consume you.

The second piece of advice is to start each meal with a large glass of water and a large bowl of fresh vegetables.

Toss all the raw veggies you can think of into a large bowl, except only the most sweet and starchy varieties (such as potato). To complete your appetizer, simply add a low-calorie dressing. That’s correct, we won’t be serving any of your favorite crackers or dressings. That’s all there is to it! Drink a lot of water beforehand, and you’ll be fine. The goal is to make your stomach feel fuller and more content.

Thirdly, take your time and cut back on portions.

This is how we can put it. When you wolf down your food, your stomach is too preoccupied with digesting to send signals to your brain that it is full. So, chew your food thoroughly, let your stomach rest between bites, and signal to yourself when you’ve had enough. And gradually cut back on the quantity of food you normally eat. Try to see how you fare. In my case, though, I find that I am satisfied with half of my usual dinner after eating a salad and drinking water first.

Tip #4: Consume many little meals throughout the day.

Don’t even think about skipping breakfast or turning down dinner. It messes with your internal mechanisms and makes your stomach sick. Reduce your overall food intake while increasing your salad and water intake. If so, you should be alright.

Fifth Piece of Advice: Finish Dinner with an Apple or Orange.

It should be very evident by now that you can’t finish dinner with cheesecake or cookies. Don’t fall back on high-calorie foods like bananas, though. Eat apples or oranges (or related fruits like clementines) instead to get a good dose of vitamin C and other nutrients. Taking vitamin C is a good approach to losing weight since it increases the rate at which your body burns fat during normal activity.

Sixth piece of advice: Ditch the soda.

Stop drinking sodas while you’re at the computer or in front of the TV. Soda is harmful to your teeth, your body, and your waistline. Stop drinking sodas immediately. Easily switch it out for water. Water helps you shed pounds rapidly and is good for you, so why not drink 5 liters a day?

Seventh Piece of Advice: Quick Bites? NO!

It’s really relaxing to sit on the couch while watching television with a hand in the bowl of potato chips. Everything from Mars and Snickers bars to chocolate and biscuits will sabotage your diet. What’s the ideal activity for the couch potato? If you want to lose weight more quickly, it’s a good idea to get up and move around every once in a while.

The eighth piece of advice is to walk more.

Stop taking the car everywhere you go—to the office, the classroom, the playground, the grocery store, even the backyard! If your destination is within walking distance, then walking is the best option. Don’t be so hard on your car. If you want to lose weight quickly, walking for just 20 minutes a day can make a huge difference. Walking is an excellent way to get in shape quickly and burn off extra fat. So, if you can’t make it to the gym for some real exercise, at least include more walking into your regular life.

Tip #9: Avoid fast food at all costs.

I understand how easy it might be to skip cooking at home in favor of a quick supper at a fast food restaurant. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but if you eat fast food regularly, prepare to welcome some additional pounds. When eating away from home, it is still possible to maintain a healthy diet by making smart selections from the menu and swapping out high-calorie drinks like soda for healthier options like lemon-infused water. It can help you cut back on calories and slim down.

Tenth piece of advice: Be reliable.

This is my last piece of advice, but it could prove to be the most important. You may believe that starving yourself for a few days may help you lose weight more quickly. This is a terrible error. A few times on foolish impulses, I tried it and it went horribly wrong both times. I starved myself, and then, when I could take it no more, I binged with reckless abandon, regaining every last one of those stubborn pounds in the process. I managed to get myself into a never-ending loop. Therefore, you shouldn’t consider starving yourself. Maintain uniformity in your actions. Maintaining your weight loss requires sticking to your diet plan.

I understand that even though there are only 10, they may seem overwhelming. There is a diet program available online that lays out the best ways to lose weight permanently and healthily, including details on calorie intake and the sorts of food that will help you lose weight faster.

I really hope that you find the preceding tips useful in your quest for weight loss. Feel free to ask any follow-up questions in the comments section, and I’ll do my best to respond. We appreciate your time and wish you the best of luck.
