Are You a Natural Weight Loss Beginner? Here are Some Tips to Get You Started.
It’s crucial that weight loss beginners understand that the secret to healthy weight loss is one that happens gradually and with a plan. This is why the following 3 tips from experts will help new dieters on the path to success.
Change expectations of yourself
People often start diets and immediately fall off, because once they make one wrong choice, they lose focus and drop their diet completely. Ultimately, you’ll want to change your eating, but it’s work in progress. If you have a slice of cake for lunch, don’t drop the diet completely. Instead, implement an “emergency” strategy: go for a 30-minute walk or have a light soup for dinner. Successful weight loss is about the collective choices that you make over time.
Start By Incorporating Color Into Your Plate
If you’re unsure of what to eat, just keep it simple by adding more color to your plate. According to WebMD, adding fruits and vegetables to your diet will both give you energy and help you feel full between meals. Aim to eat one serving of fruits or vegetables with each meal.
Plan Your Meals Ahead of Time
If you’re new to dieting, don’t eat only when hungry. According to Dr. Oz, it’s best to scheduleblocks of time when you want to have your meals. Being more organized about your eating will help you prevent a “crash,” and over time, you’ll train your body to eat at a set time.
Natural dieting doesn’t just help with losing weight; it’s also a long-term strategy for a healthier and more fulfilling life. Making a few short-term sacrifices will have great results over time, and starting a diet correctly (and keeping at it) is what makes it successful.
Want a Lasting Weight Loss? Then Motivate Yourself Like the Marathon Runners Do!
So you have your New Year Resolution done! You are going to start a new and healthier life. Losing weight. Starting freshly, like you use to do? - But what happened with last years New Year promise? Forgotten? Did you change your mind? Suddenly not so important any longer?
This time, don’t give up! New research shows that it IS possible to avoid a fading motivation!
SET REALISTIC GOALS
SELF-DETERMINATION (GIVE YOURSELF THE FEELING OF MASTERING THE SITUATION, THAT YOU ARE COMPETENT)
SHARING THE EXPERIENCE WITH OTHER PERSONS IN THE SAME SITUATION, BE PART OF SOME WEIGHT LOSS COMMUNITY OR PROGRAM
Important motivation factors for marathon runners have been identified by the Norwegian researcher Gro Jordalen, at the Norwegian School of Sport Sciences. She looked at marathon runners of nearly all ages (between 18 and 67 years) to find what that made it possible for marathon runners to suffer mile after mile, and still succeed to achieve their goal, whether it be the Oslo, New York, Frankfurt or Berlin marathon 2011. Logically the same motivation factors can be used by you to have success on the way to reducing weight in the long run!
Some of the really significant factors, she reported, was that the runners felt competent in what they were doing. In order to feel fine on their way to reach their goal, it was important to have the sense of mastering. Another important factor for the successful runners: Self-determination. And the sense of belonging (all the time surrounded by fellow runners!) also contributed as a motivation to succeed.
You probably have chosen way other goals for the New Year than marathon! More likely you have decided to lose weight, eat more healthy, things like that. BUT like people that completes long and weary sport activities, like a 42.9 km marathon,here are motivation factors that can help you to achieve a long term weight loss goal. – And they might be very identical to successful marathon runners!
1. Mastering: Set yourself up for smaller, attainable, short-term goals.
An untrained person who want to run a 10K, must start out, not with a goal of running 3-4 times a week; after 1-2 weeks, that person will find out this is too hard! The best short-term goal to start with, is simply to get up from the couch and walk a little every day. When that is accomplished, and you can master it, give yourself a small reward, and set the next short term goal. Maybe 1 min walking, 1 min running for about 20 minutes. And when that is accomplished during some weeks, next short term goal. – By using short term goals like this, even a very untrained person can be able to run a 10K in 6 to 12 months time. And the successful marathon runners use the same kind of motivation in their training for the marathon.
If you have a desire to reduce lets say 20 pounds, – should that be your only goal? Of course not! Maybe 1 pound per week or 2 weeks can be a short term realistic goal. And the probability for success and good feeling you experience on your way is sharply increased, when you see that short term, realistic goals can be reached. And don’t forget to reward yourself for each short-term goal achieved! :-)
Hook up with other people in the same situation! There is strong evidence that people facing the same challenges will be mutually inspiring and motivating. A good idea may be to enroll in one of the programs we recommend in other special article: Weight Loss Methods Proven to Work!
One of the greatest motivation factors is your own feelings. If your wife think you are a bit fat, this alone is probably not enough to start a hard days work towards slimness! If you don’t give yourself an inner satisfactory feeling to lose weight, then the motivation more easily evaporates.
All in all: Start easy, get accomplices, find your own mastering level and reward yourself for attaining your short term goals. Then you think like a real marathon runner!
An interesting fact about feelings related to weight loss: Good experiences, makes our body produce dopamine. For the survival of the human mankind rewards in the form of freeing dopamine in the body plays an important part. Eating, sex, caring of children, new adventures; all produces dopamine from your brain. Envisaging your self every day as a slim and fit person, can give the same dopamine experience, and make things easier on your task to lose weight permanently!
