Whether it's the dawning of a new year OR simply a place in time when an individual is struck with the desire to lose those unhealthy, unwanted pounds - starting anew brings hope and opportunity for weight loss success!
THE New Diet Plan Step #1 - Wiping the Diet Canvas Clean
Let's begin by wiping the Diet Canvas clean. Totally clean. Forget about your past Weight Loss & Diet Failures. Stop punishing yourself both physically and emotionally for gaining weight. Look towards the future, even if you have a substantial amount of weight to lose.
If you have 100 pounds to lose, with perseverance and a healthy diet plan, you can be your recommended weight this time next year. If you have 50 pounds to lose, you can achieve such in six months. 25 pounds to lose - about 3 months. And if you have more than 100 pounds to lose, you can certainly achieve that too! After all, most of we-humans started out within a few ounces or pounds of one another. With growth, our weight increased - and of course, what goes up, must come down.
When I lost more than 100 pounds so many years ago, I got to a point to where I didn't think it was humanly possible to ever weigh my recommended weight again. I gave up. Then one year as the new year dawned, I went on an aggressive weight loss adventure and when the holidays rolled around, I was at my recommended weight. So indeed - you can accomplish such, too! But more important than weight loss is losing weight safely so you'll be around to enjoy all the healthy rewards. Back to our empty canvas....
An empty canvas allows the imagination room to grow - room for new Weight Loss Ideas and Weight Loss Dreams to take form. And we can make our diet plan as difficult OR as easy as we wish. With this said, let's begin adding some color to our Diet Canvas, keeping in mind that all of the following 10 Diet Elements can work together to achieve permanent weight loss while making the weight loss process easier.
THE New Diet Plan Step #2 - Setting Weight Loss Goals, Losing Weight Without Dieting
To achieve healthy, permanent weight loss Diet Bites promotes a daily diet based on the dieter's calorie needs for their recommended weight - forever going forward. Think about this. Imagine that you follow a daily diet containing the number of calories necessary to support your ideal weight - a daily diet containing the foods recommended in the healthy food pyramid. Once your healthy diet plan begins, your body immediately responds via weight loss while receiving healthy benefits. And as long as you consume the number of required calories, once you arrive at your recommended weight, you will NEVER gain weight again!
In addition, the weight will come off in the healthiest manner possible. There is no stumbling after the diet plan has ended. And yes - you can still enjoy food-favorites IF you keep the calories within your recommended calorie allotment.
As for calorie counting, sure - it takes a bit of pause to add up the calories in the foods within your daily diet. But if you could be trim forever, wouldn't it be worth that time and effort?
Yes, there are other methods for weight loss based on carbs, minimal fat grams and so forth, but when it's all said and done, our weight isn't governed by the amount of carbs we eat, or the amount of fat grams and so forth. Our weight is governed by energy (calories) consumed and energy expended.
Too many times, the new dieter accomplishes weight loss success only to rapidly regain the weight after the diet has ended. By embracing a daily diet which contains the number of calories necessary for the individual's weight, the individual gradually slims-down to their recommended weight. This method for safe, permanent weight loss not only eases stress placed on the body amid the weight loss phase, it also makes the issue of the future daily diet a no-brainer.
