Losing Weight Requires Some Major Lifestyle Changes

By Chileshe Mwape

Once you have made up your mind to lose weight, you should make that commitment and go into it with a positive attitude. Losing weight requires major lifestyle changes, including diet and nutrition, exercise, and behavior modification. We all know that losing weight can be quite a challenge. It takes time, practice and support to change lifetime habits. But it's a process you must learn in order to succeed.

To be successful at losing weight, you need to change your lifestyle and not just go on a diet. This requires cutting back on the number of calories you eat by eating smaller amounts of foods and choosing foods lower in calories. It also means being more physically active. Most health experts recommend a combination of a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity for weight loss.

Exercise does not have to be strenuous to be beneficial. And some studies show that short sessions of exercise several times a day are just as effective at burning calories and improving health as one long session. Look at the exercising aspect of your program as fun and recreation.

Experts say that walking is one of the easiest and most useful exercises you can do. It helps the total circulation of blood throughout the body, and thus has a direct effect on your overall feeling of health. There are things such as aerobics, jogging, swimming and many other exercises which will benefit a weight loss program. Discuss the options with your doctor and take his advice in planning your exercise and weight loss program.

Remember that the most important changes are long term. No matter how much weight you have to lose, modest goals and a slow course will increase your chances of both losing the weight and keeping it off. It takes time, practice and support to change lifetime habits. But it's a process you must learn in order to succeed.
