How fast is fast? You should aim to lose about 1-2 lb a week. For this you must eat 500-1000 fewer calories a day. That way you will lose 12-24 lbs over three months. Anything quicker is not a good idea, but the results will be noticeable well before the three months is up.
Write down your plan.
Give yourself a timescale for your walking exercise and weightloss program. Keep a check while you watch the pounds vanish. If you don’t hit your target celebrate at coming close. If you didn’t come close look at what you are doing wrong. For…
Failure is not an option.
Maybe you think you have tried everything, diet, exercise, personal coaching, even advice on the internet. Nothing you attempted has taken the weight off. You feel that it is impossible and nothing you can do will work. But there is still hope. Trust me, there really is.
It’s a lifestyle choice.
If you have not lost weight, and you don’t have a medical problem, you are either eating too much, not getting enough exercise or both. But don’t just eat less of what you have always eaten. Change you whole diet. Then up the exercise by extending your walking fitness program. It really is easy and you can do I. You are reading this article, that’s a start. Have one more try.
What is the best diet then?
From my experience the best diet will always be the Mediterranean Diet. Fruit, green vegetables, lean meat, oily fish and an occasional glass of wine. I love it and it works for me. It will work for you.
How do you know that’s right?
Well, I’ve been there. I’ve been overweight myself and by using the Mediterranean Diet I am now exactly my target weight, which is what I was as a teenager. It was part of a weight loss and walking fitness program and it worked.
But don’t just believe me.
A. Tripopoulou of the University of Athens Medical School says: ‘The current momentum towards the Mediterranean Diet has solid biological foundation and does not represent transient fashion. We are now well under way to explain what nature has been trying to tell us through the otherwise unexplained good health of the Mediterranean people.’
So just do it.
It’s easy, give it a try and within a few weeks you will be pounds lighter. That’s what you wanted, wasn’t it?
