Health facts and fitness tips
 
1. Water! Water! Water! Drink lots of water and for alternatives drink juice instead of sodas. Start your mornings with a glass of water and some fruits, before breakfast.
2. Eat more healthy. Stay away from fast foods. And grilled meat is always better than fried.
3. Excersise to burn calories. Jogging is great or even finding time to do some walking each day. Also, exercise time frames can be rather short, but very beneficial when it's done on a consistent basis.

I entirely agree with points 2 and 3 but not so convinced about point 1. Yes, drink a lot of water but avoid all sugary drinks, even fruit juices and eat whole fruits instead. Drink green tea and even natural Tibetan herbs for slimming if you want boost your metabolism in natural way. It will also prevent you from yo-yo dieting.

Hi Vivian, great feedback! I also want to add that nothing beats a home cook meal, even if you're not the best at cooking you can always use a recipe book. Now you will know exactly what goes into your food and then into your body. Restaurants are ok but the best meals I have eaten was homemade. Furthermore, it is very important for each person to focus on their own individual fitness progress, discouragement can come from focusing on someone else who might have faster progress.

4. Sleep! Lack of sleep increases our cortisol level, which can lead to weight gain. Sleeping increases serotonin levels and make us happier chicks to do happier things :)

i totally agree that sleep helps with weight loss!!!! 6-8 hours of sleep is always good. :carrot:

Palestrina 03-18-2017 10:06 AM

I'd never start my day with fruits, it spikes my blood sugar and brings me crashing down. I prefer to eat fruit after a meal, it helps me with digestion.

I know people like jogging but I find it so boring, and makes people prone to injuries too. In fact now studies show that "chronic cardio" does more damage than good to a body. I'm seeing huge changes in my body shape, endurance and strength since I started HIIT and weight lifting.

5. Meditation - this is so important to help manage stress.

nsRemedies 03-18-2017 12:54 PM

I agree that sugar can be a weight watcher's worst enemy @Sanaa, honey is a great alternative. People often ask themselves sometimes in the middle of the day: 'Did I drink any water today?' Which is why I suggest drinking water and eating fruits in the morning times @Palestrina, you can eat your fruits before or after breakfast. Also, drinking water when you wake up, revives the body cells and organs from a sleep state.

Palestrina 03-18-2017 02:16 PM

No, I can't eat fruits before breakfast, it doesn't matter how many times you say it it still doesn't work for me.

Fitlap 03-24-2017 09:46 AM

Hey,
Actually the key relies on fitting your meals correctly to your daily rythym. Latest scientific research has found out, that eating 5 times a day is not better than eating 4 times a day in terms of making your metabolism run faster. The total daily amount is much more important.
If you caloric intake is under control, you will lose weight eating 4 or 5 times a day.

AngelaT 03-31-2017 12:35 PM

High fibre and high protein breakfasts are very helpful as I feel fuller for much longer during the day.

ChloeSmith 04-03-2017 07:37 AM

Drink mineral water

I agree.

I think it's odd that other than Palestrina, none of these people posted longer than a week and then disappeared, and Palestrina posted the things that work "for her," rather than blanket statements of what's right or wrong. We are all different.

This site isn't what it used to be. I wish I had it all figured out but I still need support and look for it here when it pops up. Blanket statements about what is healthy do more damage than good. It causes such an internal uproar when we conflicting notions of what we should do or must do for our health. Health has become such a moral virtue now and everybody thinks they have THE answer to it.

I do love to prioritize my health but I like feeling joy and happiness as well and I can't afford to feel guilt or shame when I eat foods that are not too healthy. I try to do my best but don't get hung up on right and wrong.

Reduce sugar and carbs

agreed! I would bet the single posters are all spammers. Let's see if they come back to disagree.

Also the original poll question was oddly phrased, "Is it considered a difficult task to get in shape or stay in shape" instead of, "which is more difficult" and the OP did not follow up on this query. Spammer :devil:

Jeannnie 04-23-2017 05:36 PM

For me I'd say giving up refined sugar (as much as I can), and finding exercise that I genuinely enjoy, which in my case is classes. Lots of other things are important too though - I'd agree with sleep, and also drastically cutting back on alcohol. Drinking for me now is an occasional treat, rather than a regular occurrence.

How about eating less ?

ChristinaBrock 05-03-2017 06:32 AM

Drink plenty of water.

JaneP33 05-05-2017 05:39 PM

These are very useful tips :)

Teacher69 05-11-2017 02:17 PM

I have just given up all sweet drinks and going to drink only mineral water, tea , and coffee. Hope it will help.

archaelogist 05-19-2017 06:24 PM

Try using a smaller plate and restrict your portions to no larger than your fist.

SabineNil 05-24-2017 07:38 PM

Buy the gym membership.

Yes, I totally agree with you. We must do all mentioned things on daily basis. Including these tips we must join any fitness centre and do exercise under the guidance of professional trainer. It will definitely help you to be fit and healthy.

Guidance of professional trainer is not really necessary, there is plenty of very useful information online or you can ask staff member how to properly use gym equipment and it is all free.

Don't eat carbs or at least reduce them us much as you can.

marycosby 06-11-2017 11:42 AM

Almost everyone knows that drinking water helps losing weight and I've heard recently that drinking cold water helps even more :)

Debbie86 06-17-2017 10:38 AM

The most important in my opinion is to simply eat less and healthier.:carrot:

JASMINE1 07-04-2017 09:21 AM

Sugar and fast foods - these are the most important things to get rid of if you even want to think about losing weight.

dawnlouise 07-09-2017 11:48 AM

As a chronic and have tried everything dieter, I think the most important thing is to find what works for you and stick to that CONSISTENTLY. I dare say consistency is the key piece. For me, drinking water is a must for a long time i thought diet drinks counted towards water, but I was wrong, they just left me craving more and more sweets. The second thing is having a plan for every meal. I don't have to stick to it, but there's a tentative plan. This way i'm not scrambling to find something to eat when Im super tired and hungry, which usually leads to a binge at mcdonalds. The third thing is prioritizing exercise and working it in every day, no matter what. And finally, figuring out how to live with the foods you love. Eating them and enjoying them without binge eating all of them. It's possible but it takes lots of hard work!

Hp1980 08-07-2017 02:40 PM

Focus on healthy eating and exercising.

Keiran 08-29-2017 12:53 AM

A few years ago, I discovered that benefit of walking. I know, I know. It sounds like a tired old tip. But listen.

I came to work for a mall, and found myself having to walk about the mall - practically all day! I would go home with my feet literally throbbing! I quit after a few months. But only later realized that, without meaning to, without making an effort at that time, I had lost most of my protruding belly, and gained some muscled on my legs. Imagine that. I shouldn't have quit! Haha!

But seriously, my point it that walking really helps. So let's not take that for granted. :)

SammyUK 09-18-2017 04:17 PM

If you want to avoid yo-yo dieting lose weight slowly and steadily.

programmer 10-02-2017 07:22 PM

Switch to wholegrain food and just eat less.

LauraGilmore 10-23-2017 02:25 PM

From my experience 70% of weight loss is due to making fundamental dietary changes and 30% comes from exercise.

staceys 12-01-2017 01:33 PM

100% agreed
