Healthy Weight Loss Tips

Most people have been on a weight loss regimen at some time in his or her life, and many people have experienced the full gamut of weight reduction methods, from starvation to pills to cabbage soup!

If there is one sure-fire way to lose weight that would work for everyone, I don’t think we have found it yet. We are all individuals with our own physiology, personality and lifestyle, and maintaining a healthy weight seems to be a unique endeavor for each of us.

Take care of your mind, body and spirit

Having said that, we do know that weight loss, and health in general, is a matter of taking care of your whole self--body, mind and spirit. With that in mind, and without recommending any specific weight loss plan, here are some tips that may help.

-Be flexible within limits.  

-If you goof, don’t use it as an excuse to give up.

-If you are an emotional eater, that is if you eat when you are sad, bored, happy, or in the throes of any strong emotion, try to come up with alternative pleasures that you can substitute for eating at those times.  

-Try some behavior modification techniques such as:

--Eating slowly and deliberately, putting your fork down between bites,

--Using a smaller plate,

--Focusing on eating by not doing anything else at the same time,

--Planning what and how much you will eat ahead of time,

--Writing down what you eat in a food diary,
