Weight loss programs
There are many people telling you they have the secret to losing weight, but none of them have the true answer to losing weight – the key to unlocking the mystery that plagues the western world – how to lose weight. Here are a few typical weight loss programs that cannot work in a million years.
Losing weight by Drinking Tea
This one is billed as “A Safe Weight-Loss Method That Works.” And to quote from their advertisement – Documented research reveals what Asian cultures have known for centuries: Green Tea, rich in antioxidants, increases metabolism and helps burn fat. Lose Weight With Green Tea provides all the information you need to incorporate Green Tea safely and sensibly into a successful weight control program.
You would think from this that all you have to do is drink this tea and you will lose weight – Guess what? Nope, not going to work. To be fair, they do have some genuine insights as to how to lose weight, but drinking tea is not the only part of the solution. Keep reading for the “secret,” to guaranteed weight loss.
Foods That Cause You to Lose Weight
This is perhaps the biggest load of rubbish I have read. Mostly because it sounds so plausible – here is a list of foods that you can eat that will cause you to lose weight by speeding up your metabolism.
Sounds good. I guess coffee could fall into that category – it is a diuretic and a stimulant. But really, the only food I am aware of that fits this is celery – it actually tales more energy to chew and digest celery than it provides. Sound like a good diet idea to you? The Celery Diet – Guaranteed to lose weight if you eat nothing but celery. I am in no way suggesting you live on celery, but I guess it would work.
Please do not go out and live on celery for a month. I suspect you will lose weight – but not in a good way.
The South Beach Diet
Now, this one may work, but really, the information in this book is freely available and there is no need to buy special food to follow this sort of diet.
Unless – you are lazy. In which case, this diet is not going to work for you in a million years. They do make some sensible suggestions, but their ultimate goal is to sell you a book and sign you up to have meals delivered or bought through a retailer of some kind. Definitely NOT recommended.
The Secret to Losing Weight
Finally, what you have read this far to discover. The secret handed down in secret through generations of Yogis, Martial Arts experts, Tibetan masters, Scientific geniuses, Doctors and some of the great thinkers of our time. Finally, the secret to losing weight will be revealed…..
The Ancient Secret to Losing Weight
To consume less calories than you expend
Simple. Experts and Gurus around the world agree that if you ingest less calories than you burn, you will lose weight. Here is a simple example:
If you eat and drink 2,000 calories and you burn 2,500 calories, you will lose weight – Guaranteed.
If you are overweight, you are not “ill,” you do not have a “disease,” or a “condition,” or a “syndrome.”
You have merely ingested more calories than you have spent – not rocket science. Nothing can change this. It is a physical impossibility to create something from nothing.
Now, eating less than you spend requires some control over what you choose to put in your mouth and some of us (me included) have difficulty with this. But the simple fact remains – the one and only way to lose weight is to burn more calories than you eat and drink.
For me, the problem is alcohol – I like wine and beer and I love to find new foods that go well with particular wines.
You do not need to pay a fortune for special diets, or pills or specially prepared food to be delivered to your home. All of that stuff is a big con. You know the high calorie stuff you eat or drink. You know if your body is working hard or you are sitting down all day.
Here are a few tips for achieving this:
- When eating at a restaurant, only eat half the amount of food put in front of you. Princess Anne said this was how she lost weight. She was eating at official functions so often, she was getting fat, so she decided to only eat half what was on her plate – it worked.
- Drink a large glass of water with your meals. This will help you to feel fuller and stop eating when you feel full.
- Eat more fiber. Fiber is indigestible, so it passes straight through your system. It also helps your digestive system to function correctly.
- Cut out large portions of soft drinks like Coca-Cola – A 32 oz Big Gulp of Coca Cola contains 400 calories and it takes around an hour of strenuous Aerobics to burn this many calories. Replace them with water – the diet junk is at least as bad for you – Nothing but chemical crap. Except Bud Light, which is mostly water ☺ And yes, I consider Bud Light a soft drink.
- Increase your exercise level. Take the stairs instead of an elevator or escalator. Walk the dog a mile further than usual.
You can change the ratio of calorie intake to expenditure in only two ways. Increase your exercise level or decrease the amount of calories you ingest – or both. The only diet pill that works is amphetamines and that is now illegal. Why do you think Kate Moss is so thin? Yes – Cocaine.
There is no other way to lose weight – This is the one and only way. Many of the diet books, plans, clubs, whatever will only help you lose weight if you cut down the amount of calories you eat or increase the amount of activity you do. It is a good idea to have some sense of the calorific values of particular foods, but you already know the higher ones – They are the ones you like the most ☺.
The great thing about doing it this way, is it will not cost you a penny. Nothing. Free – It might even save you some money. The only thing I would suggest is the F Plan Recipe Book because it is full of good high fiber recipes, but much of this information is available for free online and you can just as easily print them out. I’m old fashioned and I like it on a piece of paper.
This also means that you don’t have to kill yourself by cutting out completely all the foods you like. If you can’t live without a McDonalds burger, by all means have it – Just eat one instead of three, or eat it once a week instead of every other day.
