Seven secrets to weight loss


Losing weight  is as simple as 1,2,3. You probably think I am bluffing. I am sure what is going through your mind is “how come it’s been so hard for me to lose weight all this while?” Really it is not as difficult as you think. Just practice these secrets and it’s bye-bye to obesity forever.

(1) Think about your eating & exercise habits and write them down on a piece of paper. Your stress level and the primary forces behind your stress.

Also write down your rest and sleep schedule, your mindset and thoughts on how you see yourself and your lifestyle. Change your lifestyle through systems.

If you have a proven and successful system, you will be successful at whatever you’re trying to accomplish. For example, your first lifestyle change can be to stop eating ALL carbohydrate foods after 5pm.

(2) Drink 8-10 glasses of water each day. If you don’t drink enough water you will continually get fatter. Human body is made up of 70% water. Of this: Muscles and Heart has 75%, Brain and Kidneys ~ 83%, Lungs ~86%, Eyes ~95%, Bones ~22%, Blood ~ 90%. If you don’t get enough water, you’ll get fat. Mild dehydration slows metabolism as much as 3%. If you don’t drink enough water, you eat too much.

(3) Exercise 15 – 30mins at  4 – 5 times a week. Start with those with less intensity. Then increase gradually. Know when to stop. If you are doing anything and you start feeling headaches please stop. There are so many exercises on Youtube. Just Google cardio and strength training exercises.

(4) Do not starve yourself. To efficiently lose fat, a 70kg woman needs to eat at least 1500cal/day.

(5) Eat 5 – 6 small meals a day. Never stuff yourself in one sitting.

There are foods that:

Burn fat: They help keep insulin levels low which allows for the release of fatty acids. They are high in protein. Most foods beneficial to weight loss contain protein. This is because protein is thermogenic, produces heat when digested. These foods are fish, beans, nuts, eggs, broccoli. We should consume more of these foods.

Also there are foods that:

Turn to fat: the list is endless with most of them being fatty foods. These foods are high in bad cholesterol and should be avoided.

– Fruits (apples, plums, grapefruit, orange, grapes, banana, pineapple chunks, watermelon, strawberry)

-Low fat diary (skimmed milk, low fat yoghurt, low fat cottage cheese) Olive oil

(6) Surround yourself with positive people. If you think you can, you can and you will. If you think you can’t, you can’t and you won’t.

(7) Get a coach or a mentor. If you want to be successful in a particular endeavour look for people who are a success in same and then copy them.
