Weight Loss Tips

Moving on following the last post Living With Good Health, where I talked about how good heath is often such an important factor in anyone's life, I think its time to get on to another important health factor and that's weight. Or more particular, weight loss.

Weight loss is a fashionable buzz word that has been around for decades and is a relentlessly albeit often unsuccessfully pursued goal for millions of people worldwide. To furnish this truly enormous market, which is really the only way to describe it, a whole jungle of weight loss products, pills and potions have been "invented" and flooded onto the high street stores and online as well.

As for the value of any of these weight loss products, the proof of the pudding has certainly been seen in their overall failure to put even the slightest dent in the ever growing worldwide obesity figures. Fad diets don't work in the long run because people simply do not stick to them long enough. So what weight loss tips are there that actually stand any chance of working for Mr or Mrs Average?

Well, mostly the general consensus is to do some daily light exercise for at least half an hour (more is better) and simply be sensible about what you eat.

Well, what did you expect? A miracle?

Miracles do not exist when it comes to weight loss. Only common sense and a little determination and urgency are needed and for anyone wanting to lose weight, that means getting off your backside, getting your mind into positive mode and DOING IT!!!

No one is going to do it for you, only you can lose the extra weight you have accumulated all by yourself. Think on this... no one made you put on weight except yourself. So who do you think is responsible for getting rid of that excess weight you no longer need? Yep, you are!

So no more looking for magic pills or the latest diet fads or crazes. Forget them because they might work for the person who invented them, but that doesn't mean they'll work for you. Remember, everyone is different and what works for one person does not work for another.

What will work for you is your own gumption, motivation and desire to be at your correct weight and then once you're in the right frame of mind, then you will start to work at it all by yourself, because that's the only way it's going to work for you!

Weight loss tips? That's all of them my friend!
