Losing Weight and Keeping It Off: A Comprehensive Approach

Everyone is trying to get stay in shape, but most people go about losing weight in a piecemeal fashion. Keeping a balanced approach is the best way to lose weight, and to stay balanced you need to engage your health comprehensively. Here is an important set of steps to help comprehensively lose weight and keep it off.

You need to get proper exercise and physical activity. Contrary to popular opinion, the best way to do this isn’t to join a gym. Instead, find a physical activity, sport or game that you enjoy, and jump head first into it. Having a physical hobby or activity can burn as many calories as ab-busting at the gym, while still being something that you want to do. When is the right time to finally take up tennis or softball? The right time is the moment you decide you want to START losing weight. Don’t fall into the trap of saying that you’ll start tennis or golf after you’ve lost a few pounds; the best time is at the beginning so that it helps you lose those pounds.

Diet is the second step behind exercise that most people think about when it comes to weight loss, and is clearly a part of a comprehensive approach. It’s essential to cut out empty calories. Avoid high calorie drinks like beer and soda, and pick healthy snacks rather than empty calorie snacks. One can of soda can have as many as 200 calories…200 calories with almost no healthful nutrition. Eliminating empty calories is an essential step for having a balanced comprehensive approach to weight loss. However, simply avoiding empty calories isn’t the proper way to balance a comprehensive approach to healthful eating. You need to maintain a balanced level of nutrition while cutting calories; and this is a mistake many people make. It’s difficult to get the right amount of nutrition while avoiding high calorie foods and the biggest problem most people have is creating a stale and stagnant diet. The last two steps will address this issue and help you find the room needed to have a varied and interesting diet; the sort of diet that people can continue and live with.

Step there, take a multivitamin – Seriously. A multivitamin will give you a calorie free way of getting all the vitamins and nutrients your body needs on a daily basis. By getting all the nutrients and vitamins you need each day in one dose, you have freedom to eat those foods that you want to eat. Instead of being stuck to a diet that is nutritionally sound but boring and stagnant, multivitamins can give your diet the wiggle room that allows for variety.

Finally, make sure to eat your fruits and veggies. Fruits and vegetables are naturally low calorie and high nutrient foods. Adding new and different fruits and vegetables to your diet creates a diversity ways to get the nutrition you need. Instead of tomatoes on your salad try avocado. Instead of mashed potatoes try some mashed parsnips. The different flavors will help keep you eating. And because you’ve taken the multivitamin of step three, you know that you are covered on your nutritional needs.
