What you will learn...
It is true that sometimes losing weight becomes an easy task.
It’s the time when you’re all fired up and pumped up to get your weight loss down to that dream goal level.
But sometimes applying the theory of losing weight becomes really difficult. You can find a lot of methods and diets that result in a caloric deficit out there, but they all require patience and a lot of perseverance.
Many people who set themselves on the path of losing weight could not stick to it because their motivation declines with every passing day.
Furthermore, some people also start the process strong but quit really soon, mostly because they didn’t get the results they were expecting and they don’t realize that small progress is still progress.
But there are also many people who know that keeping a healthy weight boils down to three basic things: eating healthy, eating less, and being active and they have successfully transformed their bodies by following these three simple things.
Here is a full list of the lifestyle habits of the people who made it possible to gain healthy weight.
Habit No. 1: Exercise, Exercise, And Exercise:
Living an active lifestyle is the best and the most effective way of losing some extra pounds you gained from unhealthy eating.
Most of the people who stood successful in their effort to lose fat exercise for about an hour a day, burning about 2,700 calories a week.
You shouldn’t be scared of this routing, instead, buy yourself good workout clothes and start with an easy routine and then slowly keep on increasing your exercise time.
Habit No. 2: They Set Realistic Goals:
Although everyone wants to lose a great number of lbs in minimum time and some people even set goals for themselves which are practically not possible. Successful weight losers, on the other hand, set realistic and practical goals for themselves.
They set SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-bound) goals and take smart approaches to achieve them.
When you are trying to lose some weight stored around your belly and back, start with smaller and feasible goals and then go on increasing these goals with time.
Habit No. 3: They Know Exercise Isn’t Enough:
Yes, exercise is compulsory if you want to lose some pounds but that is not the only thing that can help you in attaining a healthy weight.
This is why people who lose extra calories to gain and then maintain a healthy weight aid their weight loss struggle with healthy eating. And some of them exercise hard enough every day to eat exactly what they want. And I could say that climbing 7000 m+ mountains is the only way you can eat 24/7 and not gain any weight.
Habit No. 4: Eat A Low-Fat, High-Carb Diet:
Almost all the successful losers ate low-fat, high-carb diets for weight loss, including higher fiber carbs, such as whole grains, beans, fruits, and veggies even if they lost the weight with a different type of diet.
Generally, successful losers eat about 56% of their calories from carbs, 19% from protein, and 25% from fat (the healthier monounsaturated fats such as olive oil and canola oil, omega-3 fatty acids from fish, and some helpful polyunsaturated fats found in nuts and other plant foods) for weight maintenance.
Habit No. 5: Keeping A Meal routine:
Successful weight losers eat at roughly the same times each day. They usually have a regular meal rhythm (avoidance of snacking and nibbling).
A consistent diet regimen across the week and year also predicts subsequent long-term weight loss maintenance.
Habit No. 6: Drink Wisely:
Besides exercising and healthy eating, intaking fluids wisely is also very important for your weight loss effort. And experts are of the view that when it comes to fluids, water is always best.
Healthy weighted people always watch out for hidden calories when choosing a beverage and try to avoid artificial sweeteners.
Additionally, they first scrutinize the calories and composition in fruit juices before drinking them.
However, to keep yourself energized for your workout, it’s best to consume your fruit whole or at least stick to one small glass of fruit juice a day.
