10 Diet Tips You Should Read Before The Start Of Your Weight Loss Journey

Do you want to be thin and look sexy, to feel healthy and be fit again? Of course you do, everybody does. How? Start a diet – usually this is the easy part, to succeed in your diet – this is the hard part.

Don’t get frustrated, the problem is not in you or the diet. It’s complex. You have to do something first in order for the diet to work for you. Change your lifestyle, get rid of your bad eating habits, and even forget your favorite restaurant. If you need a drastic weight loss, then you have to be ready to do drastic changes in your life.

1) First before the start - make sure you are ready for this

Ask yourself the following questions:

1) Is weight loss your top priority?
2) Is dieting right for you?
3) Do you have the right motivation?
4) Are you able to devote 20-30% of your time to your body?
5) Would you accept the things you can not change?
6) Do your family and friends support you?

If your answer is YES to all the above questions then you are ready.

2) Find out the reasons to be fat

They are usually complex, but stress and depression are very common. Learn how to control your stress levels first, and than chose an effective diet food or protein diet.

If your metabolism is slow then you should combine your diet with regular exercising. Then all you have to do is watch how you burn fat like magic. It may sound like hype, but most diets do need exercise.

Starvation could also be a reason to be fat. Use Hoodia Gordonii Plus or other popular appetite suppressants containing original African hoodia cactus.

Other reasons for being fat could be eating disorders, hormonal disorders, etc. It is important to know the reasons to be fat, so I heartily recommend you to find out the reason or reasons to be fat.

Do you know the reasons to be fat? Are you ready to start dieting? If your answers are yes and yes, than it’s time to select the right diet that will work for you.

3) Find a diet plan just for you

There are hundreds of diets available today. They are all so different and when it comes to select the right diet for you, you get overload with tones of crap info about some hype diets.

In short diets could be classified as:

- low carb diets

- low fat

- high protein diets

- fruit-rich diets

- balanced diets

- personalized diets

I expressly said in short, cause actually there are a lot more types of diets and many innovative diet ideas, but I don’t want to make you try "the new Joe’s super diet" or anything alike.

I only recommend you proven and already tested personalized diet plans with thousands of happy customers all over the globe.

Follow these links to the reviews of the most popular diet plans I recommend:

WonderSlim Meal Replacements Diet

Bistro MD Diet Food Service

There you will find all the information you need to select the best diet plan just for you.

4) Track your weight loss results correctly using software for your convenience

This step is a very important part of your successful weight loss journey. You can track your results in a book or something.

However, I do not recommend you to use this old fashioned way to collect data. There are software tools developed for your convenience with various functions like calorie counting, body mass index, measure current fat, setting weight goals and so on.

To achieve successful weight loss –collect and enter all data you need, then analyze your results correctly:

Enter your current weight. Set your goals. Calculate your body mass index.

Track your daily calorie intake correctly - do not miss even the smallest cookie you’ve had in front of the TV.

Allow at least one week to pass and than analyze the accumulated data. You will be amazed how much unnecessary foods you have eaten.

5) Walk a lot at weekends

I love long walks at weekends. They make me feel relaxed and leave all the stress behind. I suggest you to do the same. Go and breathe some fresh air, cause in fact oxygen burns fat.

On the next day after my first long walk I had an awful muscular fever, but that didn’t turn me down. Just on the contrary.

I know the muscular fever is a proof that your body is working out. The muscular fever is just a temporary effect due to the fact that your muscles are full of toxins and your body is detoxifying.

If you practice walking or exercising regularly, you will never have a muscular fever again. Instead, you will feel healthy and fully refreshed after every day off spent on walking or exercising, which bring us to the next tip:

6) Exercise at least 3 times a week

I know that exercising can be frustrating and many lazy people do hate it. But believe me this is the only path to beautifully shaped body.

I’ll be honest with you, exercising once a week is a complete waste of time. Exercise at least 3 times a week and the results will come sooner than you expect.

I recommend you to use of a motorized treadmill or an exercise bike vs. running for weight loss. Running takes more time and efforts to achieve the same results.

During your exercises, use a slimming belt for maximum fat burning effect. You can make a slimming belt by yourself or buy a professional one.

Exercise at least 30 minutes and make sure you sweat a lot. Also drink plenty of liquids to compensate the fluid loss.

7) Drink honey and cinnamon to accelerate fat loss

It is a very powerful drink rich in antioxidants. Learn how to prepare honey and cinnamon drink for weight loss.

Some people who have tried honey and cinnamon mixture lose up to 6 pounds a week, others - about 8 pounds for a whole month. It’s not surprising, though. After all we are all different and have different metabolisms, so the effect of honey and cinnamon is different on everybody.

Despite the fact that it may sound too good to be true for someone, you have nothing to lose - the key point here is that it’s free and very easy to prepare - takes about 5 minutes to boil and 30 minutes to cool. That’s it!

Remember: do not expect miracles overnight and do not overeat, just because you are drinking honey and cinnamon. For optimum results I recommend you to use the honey and cinnamon drink in combination with a sensible diet plan.

8) Eat more fiber rich foods

Why high fiber foods are so important for weight loss? You should not underestimate the importance of fiber rich foods for weight loss. What’s more you will be totally amazed how beneficial fiber-rich foods actually are.

Here are some of the benefits for those of you who don’t have time to read the full article:

+ fibers improve digestion

+ make you feel fuller longer

+ fibers are harder to digest, so your body burns additional calories on digesting

+ decrease the risk of colon cancer

+ help lowering cholesterol and insulin after meal

9) Stay motivated

One of the best ways to stay motivated is to look at your body into the mirror every time you feel hungry or when you plan on visiting the kitchen for a small snack.

It’s absolutely in vain to break your diet because of a small weakness. Instead, go in front of the mirror, take off all your clothes and look at your body. If you feel great about the way you look, why are you dieting at all?

Keep to your diet plan and when you see results, even small results than you will be motivated to continue.

10) Set small realistic goals

This is the best tip and I left it for last. In my opinion you should set small weight goals like 2-4 pounds for 2 weeks. If you want faster results, I suggest you start doing intensive exercising and using weight loss products.

Be realistic. Great expectations usually lead to great disappointment and inevitable failure. I don’t mean to scary you but your successful weight loss journey may take somewhere between 3 to 6 months. So be patient…

During all that time you should plan, diet, exercise, and analyze your success or failure, and yet you should stay motivated and focused on what you are doing.

Set small realistic goals that are easy to achieve and you will be ready to start your weight loss journey.
