Keeping the Weight Off

Track you Activity and Your Progress  

First, take a look here to find some great product that will help you lose weight, their prices are at this link.Just as keeping a diary with your eating habits can be useful at the beginning when you are just trying to lose weight, it can also be useful to help you keep that weight off. Research has shown that keeping a food diary can help people lose weight just through the process of writing everything down. You can use that very same diary to keep track of your physical activity too.  It is also important to weigh yourself regularly so you can keep track of your weight and progress. Take a look at the Herbalife Iskustva of their clients.The recommendation is to do it once a week – don’t overdo it (as in, every day) as that will surely demoralise you. The first kilogram is always the easiest to lose. That is because we first lose the water stored in our body. So, after you lose that first kilogram, be prepared for the whole process to slow down a bit. This is normal. Don’t be disheartened if you notice slight variations in your weight at times – the important thing is to have a general trend of losing weight. Be prepared to go at it for a few months.

Advice: Regular weighing and motivation from you dietician can be a great morale booster on your weight loss journey.

Look for Help and Support  

Some people may feel they lack motivation to stick with their weight loss program if they do not have the support of the people around them. However, you don’t have to be by yourself on this journey. There are many avenues of help available to you. Ask your doctor or your nurse for advice. Perhaps they can point you towards a nutritionist who can be of assistance.  Keep an eye out on the internet for forums and self-help literature that can help you with your weight loss.

Weight Loss Medicines  

Weight loss medication is kind of a grey area. While there have been some methods that have been shown to help, we need to realise that there is no miracle cure. Let’s just say that again for added emphasis – NO MIRACLE WEIGHT LOSS CURE. If you think you are going to find a pill that will help you lose weight while you eat all you want and sit around in front of the TV, you will be disappointed (and probably lose some money at it, while endangering your health). Even if you decide to go for some medication that you think will help you lose weight, keep in mind that you will still need to change your daily habits.

Some Great Eating Tips

Try New Recipes

Most people have a set amount of recipes and meals that they use and repeat. Those can be old favourites, but you might have to find some new and healthy ways to eat. For some easy solutions check out this page.

Advice: If you are on a diet, try to learn a new and healthy recipe every week. When you reach your target weight, you should already have plenty of ideas for meals that will help you maintain it. You can find the prices for Herbalife products on the Herbalife Cenovnik page. The Herbalife za Mrsavljenje products are on the link.

Think About Eating More Soup

There is lots of evidence that soup can keep you full for longer periods of time. So, if you have soup as a starter, you are less likely to overeat for the main meal. If you take, for example, chicken and vegetables and a sip of water with it, you will feel full for a certain period after that. However, if you take those same ingredients and make them into a soup, the soup will keep you feeling full for longer. That is because your stomach will empty slower than if you eat all those ingredients separately. As a result of that, your body sends messages to your brain that your hunger is satisfied, and you will not feel hungry for a while.

Advice: Try to make the soup you are eating low fat. Avoid creamy and calorie rich soups.

Do You Feel Physically Hungry?

Appetite is a very powerful thing. It is the reason why many people have so many problems losing weight. The truth is, some people feel hunger more often than others. However, to feel hungry doesn’t always mean that that your body needs food. Sometimes, you can feel hungry on an emotional basis. For example, you feel hungry because you are tired, you are bored, excited or similar.

Think about that and try to resist the urge to eat as soon as you feel the first pangs of hunger. Are you really hungry, or are you just searching for food to calm your nerves? If you have a strong appetite, try to fill your meals with vegetables and fruits that contain lots of fibre but few calories.

Advice: Drink a lot of water, or eat a lot of fruits and vegetables to sate your hunger. Think if your hunger is caused by some emotional reasons.
