How To Achieve Weight Loss

Weight Loss around the world is becoming a constant need for certain groups of people. The idea of loosing weight has become an issue of paramount discussion across the globe.

One would ask, why is weight loss so important in relation to one’s daily activities? The answer is often simple.


A good body weight has numerous advantages over a bad body weight which comes along with it’s implications. Some of these implications being heart diseases that leads to death in most cases.

Below are some simple yet health tips on how you can achieve the long aim of weight loss.

Try To Eat Breakfast Daily.

One of the easiest ways that some people have used to reaching their long aim of reducing weight is by eating their breakfast every day.


As quoted by Elizabeth Ward, MS, RD, author of The Pocket Idiot’s Guide to the New Food Pyramids, Some are of the view that “fasting” early in the morning helps in a great way to achieving this said goal but they usually end up eating a lot more food during the day.

Research has shown that, people who eat well in the mornings, have better BMIs than those who skip it to achieve weight loss.

Simply Try a bowl of whole-grain cereal topped with fruit and low-fat dairy for a quick and nutritious start to your day.

Close Your Kitchen

One of the best ways to achieving weight loss is to form the habit of closing up your kitchen at a specific time to help you prevent late night eating habits.

Go in for something lighter like a cup of tea, porridge, hot chocolate or an ice cream for your super.

Do well to brush your teeth after this.

Choose Calories Carefully

Alcohol calories add up quickly but doesn’t satisfy hunger so do well to avoid it.

Instead, try a glass of water or 100% fruit juice when you feel hungry in-between meals. Learn to satisfy your thirst with water not soft drinks.

Eat More Fruits

Have a good eating plan that includes the avoidance of more meat and addition of more fruits that are low in calorie. This will help you achieve your target of weight loss.

Go for the Grain

Choose whole-wheat breads and pastas, brown rice, bran flakes, popcorn, and whole-rye crackers, maize, etc. This will help you loose weight.

Control Your Environments

Another simple strategy to help cut calories is to control your immediate environment.

Everything from stocking your kitchen with lots of healthy options to choosing the right restaurants.

That means avoiding the temptation by staying away from all-you-can-eat restaurants. And when it comes to parties, be mindful of what you eat.

After eating, wait for at least 10-15minutes, take in a glass of water to acertain your satisfaction level before going in for another plate of food.

Walk More

If possible or with an assistance, try to walk or jog every day for up to 10,000 steps.

You can achieve this by walking with a friend, using the gym, dog, partner or in groups.

Take Protein

A source of low-fat protein to each meal and snack will help keep you feeling full longer so you’re less likely to overeat.

Try low-fat yogurt, small portion of nuts, peanut butter, eggs, beans, or lean meats. Experts also recommend eating small, frequent meals and snacks (every 3-4 hours), to keep your blood sugar levels steady and to avoid overindulging.

Try Lighter Alternatives

Whenever you can, use the low-fat versions of salad dressings, mayonnaise, dairy products, and other products.

“You can trim calories effortlessly if you use low-fat and lighter products, and if the product is mixed in with other ingredients, no one will ever notice,” says Magee.

More smart substitutions: Use salsa or hummus as a dip; spread sandwiches with mustard instead of mayo; eat plain roasted sweet potatoes instead of loaded white potatoes; use skim milk instead of cream in your coffee; hold the cheese on sandwiches; and use a little vinaigrette on your salad instead of piling on the creamy dressing.
