If you are overweight and can’t loose weight, than you are doing clearly something wrong. Most of the time that think is your diet.
I know, you say that you already tried everything and nothing works. Or you just gave up, not willing to give up the stuff you really enjoy to eat.
However long you are already unsuccessfully trying to lose weight, don’t give up. Maintaining healthy low weight is essential to your overall health and well-being. And giving up on loosing it is very unwise thing to do.
However undisciplined you are, you can lose it. You can change! In fact, you have to, you don’t have any other choice.
Losing weight starts with nutrition.
Don’t worry about exercise right now. What you eat is more important, than how much you move. I know people who workout intensively every day and don’t sit down for the rest of their day, because their jobs are so physically demanding. Yet they are overweight and they can’t lose any weight. And than there are those who don’t do any physical activity and they are skinny. Most of the time, they are weak and fragile, because they don’t do any physical activity, but they are very skinny.
Give up your wine
You are going to hate me for this, but I see drinking wine, beer or other kinds of alcohol as a single biggest barrier to losing weight in many people. These are the people whose diet is already relativelly good, they eat lots of vegetables, fruits, lean protein and whole foods in general. They don’t go to fast foods, they don’t indulge in huge amounts of pasta, breads and pastries. They are not too heavy, they are about 10 – 20 pounds overweight and they can’t loose it. The reason is almost always wine.
The average overweight wine drinker has about 2 glasses of wine every day. That’s 160 calories. That wouldn’t be that bad. What’s the worst on it is, that wine and other alcoholic beverages are just plain sugar. The kind of sugar that enters your bloodstream and creates hormonal imbalance that prevents body to use the fat reserves you already have for energy. If you eliminate wine from your diet and you belong to this category of already healthy eaters, your weight will go down fast.
If you can honestly say, that you don’t drink wine or beer or other alcoholic beverages regularly and you are overweight, than the problem is in your eating.
People who don’t drink any alcohol and are overweight, are usually overweight by a lot. They are overweight by 30 – 60 pounds by average. Sometimes it is a combination of a poor diet and alcohol drinking.
The problem often times is in eating sweet stuff like candy bars, chocolates, baked sweet goods, donuts, soda and sweet juices drinking and fast food restaurant sweet stuff eating – shakes, fries, cookies and others. If you can completely eliminate these foods from your diet, your weight will go down fast even without exercise.
30 day trial
30 day trial is when you decide, that you will not put into your body anything that is making it suffer and gain weight. If you stick to your 30 day trial, you’ll lose up to 10 pounds. That will depend on how heavy you already are right now. Heavier people with higher fat percentage will lose more and those who have lower levels of fat percentage will lose less weight.
If there is no regular alcohol drinking in your diet and you are eating healthy wholesome diet full of fresh fruits and vegetables, without drinking any sweetened drinks, you are most certainly lean and skinny.
Do this for 30 days and you will lose weight.
