Have you ever wondered why every month there's a new magazine article that claims to have found the "best diet ever" or that it will show you how to "permanently lose that extra weight"? I mean, if their tips are supposed to help your get rid of that extra weight forever then why do they print a new article every month?
There's a reason why nutrition advice from magazine sucks: they have to sell new magazines every month! They can't tell you how to get rid of your body fat forever and then sell you the same thing next month. Nobody would buy it.
Fear not. I don´t have to sell you anything so pay attention because I will show you how to achieve permanent weight loss.
1. Be More Active
Forget what you heard about walking for 30 minutes 3 times per week. Permanent weight loss demands intense exercising for 45-60 minutes every day. How intense depends entirely on your fitness level. IF you weigh 300 pounds and are a professional couch potato I don't expect you to run 5 miles every day. Know your limitations but push them hard every day.
2. Change Your Eating Habits
If the magazines article have got one thing right it is this. You NEED to learn what to eat and drink. It isn't that hard.
Eat/drink more of these: lean meats, nuts, fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains and water.
Eat less of these: processed foods, fatty meats, canned fruits, fried foods, fruit juices, sodas and alcohol.
Seriously, it's just common sense. Trust me you do not need to eat 6 slices of pizza or drink half a gallon of coke. Use some will power!
Check the 2 examples below
|Eat more of these|
|Eat less/avoid these|
Like I said it's common sense. If you honestly didn't know which of the two options was the healthier option then may God have mercy on your soul.
See? Permanent weight loss isn't about secrets and fad diets. It's about moving your butt and eating healthy, nutritious foods.
