Losing weight is a very personal journey and each individual will have their own process of succeeding. Recently Kim Kardashian has revealed it was the Atkins diet that helped her achieve her weight loss goals and lose an amazing 70 pounds! (That’s 5 stone to you and me). Huge success.
Diets such as Atkins can be difficult for many to stick to as it is strict on food groups you can eat. Not everyone can stay on track, especially when certain foods are ‘forbidden’ – this just makes you want them more.
If such diets do not appeal to you, and you wish to continue eating all food groups (in moderation of course) then it is possible to achieve long term weight loss goals through healthy eating and exercise. Including more vegetables to meals, snacking on fruit instead of junk, and calorie counting can all help.
One way to count calories with ease is with meal replacement shakes. These convenient shakes are highly nutritious, full of protein to help maintain lean muscle mass whist you lose weight, and to keep you feeling fuller for longer. But best of all, they take the hassle out of preparing breakfast and lunch.
It may be easier to start with a healthy eating change if you are somewhat unaccustomed to exercise. Reducing calories and eating healthy will definitely kick-start weight loss. Once exercise is able to begin, fat burner supplements can further enhance weight loss results. Exercise will boost metabolism but so will fat burners, so the effects will be greater.
As previously mentioned, weight loss is a journey, one that cannot be achieved in a small space of time (not healthily anyway). Take time to achieve your weight loss goals as taking time should ensure the weight stays off and that yo-yo dieting is a thing of the past.
