Why Real Weight Loss Comes From Healthy Habits and Smart Choices

List: Posted: 04/04/11

Weight loss should be a healthy endeavor, not one that involves starvation and overdoing it with exercise at the gym. You have to accommodate your weight loss plans to your body. If you’re very overweight, for instance, jogging might actually do more harm than good, by putting stress on your joints and ion your heart. Moderate exercise may be better.


Make sure you talk to your doctor about any exercise regimen you intend to make a part of your weight loss efforts. Eating smart, not starving yourself, is the other major component of healthy weight loss.

Healthy weight loss means treating your body better. You have to change your eating habits in a way you can sustain, and in a way that is healthy, to use dieting as a means of achieving weight loss. You should be thinking about fostering a better diet for your whole life, not for just that period where you’re very serious about weight loss.

Remember that you need both nutrients and exercise. This means that you cannot expect to achieve any real and long-lasting weight loss on a crash diet, as you won’t have the fuel your body needs to generate the energy for exercise.


You also need to make sure that your plans are realistic. Remember that losing weight won’t change how your body naturally looks, it will simply make you healthier, happier and enable you to live longer.
