The Best Diet is Always Simple & Inexpensive

Dieting lately? Carbs this, fat grams that. Calories this, fiber that. It's enough to drive a domesticated human totally ape. It's time to simplify! A simple diet plan is one of the best diet plans. It doesn't have to be boring.

It's also one that the dieter understands - and understanding how your diet works is one of the precious keys in achieving weight loss success!

How to simplify your diet plan.

A big drop in weight doesn't happen overnight; weight loss happens in paced increments.

You should reach your weight loss goals quickly and safely. With that in mind, one of the greatest mistakes that dieters make is expecting too much from their bodies - too fast, too soon. Weight Loss takes time for your body to catch up with what your mind desires.

How to improve weight loss results. 

* Embrace a healthy breakfast to start the metabolism burn and to ward off the hungries so that lunch doesn't become a binge.

* The later in the day you eat, the less you should eat as the body slows as the day grows.

* Exercise at least every other day for about 20 minutes.

* Don't starve or the metabolism will go into lock-down.

A Simple Diet Plan Avoids the Weight Loss Cash-Cow & is Inexpensive

Betty decides to go on a weight loss plan, a weight loss plan that ends up draining her bank account.

What started as one weight loss plan turned into several - as she was desperately seeking a way to drop the unwanted weight quickly by any means that would work.

This is how Betty spent her money: low fat weight loss book, low fat weight loss program, low carb diet and exercise equipment.

Although all the above methods may assist an individual in weight loss, Betty's problem was that her patience wore thin and she found herself jumping from one weight loss craze to another without giving her current technique a chance. 

Given, some of Betty's dieting methods weren't the best choices, and by embracing a diet based on the healthy Food Pyramid she would have reached her weight loss goals by simply sticking with her weight loss plan.

And her bank account would have ended up a lot healthier, too.

A Simple Guide to Exercise for Weight Loss and Body Toning

Much emphasis is placed on activity and weight loss. Adding physical activity to your diet not only strengthens and tones your body during the weight loss process, the dieter will lose more weight.

You know the routine by now - warm up a few minutes before heading off to exercise, then take a few minutes to do a cool down. Be sure to have necessary H2O in sight.

Establishing Your Diet Game Plan - Things That Effect The Calorie Burn * The amount of calories that a person burns depends upon their weight and the distance traveled in 'x-amount' of time.

These are a few more things that effect the way we burn calories:

* Age - the older we get, the less calories our bodies require.

* Body Composition - Men tend to have more muscles than women and muscle requires more calories to maintain that fat, so men tend to require more calories.

* Metabolism, Gene Pool, Muscle Mass, Gender

Diet Activity - Burning Calories - It is important to keep in mind that exercise is actually more important to your body, overall health and well-being than it is in assisting you in reaching your weight loss goals. Most all exercise expends minimal calories.

Simple Diet - Simple Activity

How long do I need to exercise to burn off that chocolate eclair?  An example: a 150 pound individual would need to walk about an hour in a brisk sprint to burn off one chocolate eclair.

Does walking or running work best for losing weight?

If you're not used to exercise, you'll need to start out slow and of course, get the old doctor's approval. But once you beef up your activity level, and begin searching for quicker methods of dropping pounds and buffing up the bod, what burns more calories - running or walking?

Fact is, it doesn't matter if you walk or if you run, the body will experience about the same calorie burn - when based on the distance that the individual covered during the running/walking phase.

Taking a 'running' comparison, an individual can experience an estimated calorie burn as follows when walking:

A 120 pound individual walking 2 miles per hour will burn about 160 calories. If they double those efforts to 4 miles per hour, they can burn about 280 calories.

A 210 pound individual walking 2 miles per hour will burn about 210 calories. If they double those efforts to 4 miles per hour, they can burn about 375 calories.

Losing weight doesn't have to cause a fortune - although some dieters feel that they must spend a lavish amount as atonement for weight gain.

In addition to trimming up your favorite family recipes, work on trimming down your shape by using simple weights.

Simple weights include: a gallon milk jug filled with sand, a 5 pound bag of potatoes, and ankle weights that you can sew yourself by using a bit of Velcro, some flannel, a bit of sand and thread.

Basically, sew the sand into the material, forming a band that will fasten around your leg, once the Velcro has been attached. 

Running On Overweight - Walk Don't Run - When most people decide to take on a weight loss program, they start out all geared up to get fit, to tone up, and to lose weight.

All that energy sometimes poses great risk to the out-of-shape body, particularly for those individuals who have quite a lot of weight to lose.

At the beginning of any weight loss program, exercise should be performed slowly and should continue forward with a slow increase. Start out walking - not running which could place undue stress on your out-of-shape system.

Exercise Tips for Weight Loss - Give your body a rest every now and then from exercise. Different exercises work different muscles and body parts - so choose exercises that can be mixed and matched to achieve optimum results.

Keep some quick energy at hand in case blood sugar levels fall while exercising.  

Popular sport's drinks can also help replenish your body's essential fluids that become depleted during exercise. Exercise with a buddy. Two's company!

In Summary

* Embrace a healthy daily diet based on the Official Food Pyramid.

* Consider joining a health club to try out exercise and fitness machines before purchasing.  Try - then buy.
