When it comes to losing weight and keeping it off, what really works? When we hear of someone who has lost weight and kept it off, we all want to know how they did it. What was the secret of their success?

Think of your weight loss programme asthe most important gift you have ever given yourself. Enjoy the whole experience of eating, and get the most from every morsel you eat. Get beyond the idea that your life is all about your weight and food. While you are shedding off all that excess baggage on your body, gain the pleasure of those physical, spiritual and intellectual components that make you fully human.

The approach to losing weight have to be holistic: all facets of life are necessary and better together than they are alone. Diet alone is not the best method for improving your body measurements. The ideal method is a combination of a sensible diet to lose weight, and just about 10 - 15 minutes fitness plan of exercise to lose inches. The key to successful weight loss is making permanent changes in your eating habits, and your living style. Experience and study prove that weight gain is not a quick process. It is not a result of first days or months or overeating, but of years. So the safest and the most effective way of slimming is to lose weight sensibly - a kilo in a week is quick, safe and manageable.

Crash diets should generally be avoided as quite often they fail. This is simply because they just cannot be sustained. Moreover, people on crash diets develop a face that is gaunt and haggard, while their arms, thights nad hips are still bulky.The more severe the diet, the more you slow down your metabolic rate as the body is deprived of essential foods. This process can be dangerous if the diet is extreme or prolonged, or if dieting is repeatedover several years.

While it is safe, permanent and ideal to lose about four to five kilos a month, it is very important to build health at the same time as reducing fat. It is also essential simultaneously to deal successfully with the cause related to obesity.

Various reasons are attributed to a person being overweight or obese, but a few that have been proved to be are as follows:

(a) Beight everweight or obese can actually be due to some internal disease, and most commonly this is hormonal.

(b) Why does fat person fail to use up as much energy as he takes in as food. It could be that though he eats minimally, some defect in the way his body deals with food deflects some of what he eats to his fat stores, and keeps, it there unused. This is because his metabolism is sluggish.

(c) In most cases, even with a low food intake, an obese person remains obese as his output is low. In other words, he need to exercise a lot and expend extra calories, that is, he need to correct the imbalance between his energy output and energy intake.

(d)In some cases, it is hereditary, but even in such cases, fat people can still hope to lose weight and be fit and trim.

Doctors often use a simple rule of thumb which gives them a general idea of the degree of obesity in people above the age of 25 years. With reference to a standard weight chart, you are clinically obese if you are ideal weight plus 20%. You are grossly obese if you are ideal weight plus 40%.

Dont despair when you stop losing weight after a certain period of losing weight. This is a weight plateau that most people hit, but this is just a temporary phase. If you really want to lose weight permanently, you must feel strongly enough about it so that you will adhere to a sensible redusing-regimen, and adhere to it full time. You have to build up your will power.

Overweight is a major health problem to millions of people around the world. If you are obese and do not shed off that excess weight soon, your extrakilos can endanger your health and indirectly cut your span of life. You become prone to diabetes, high blood pressure, ailments of heart and lungs, chronic nephritis, and so on.

Develop a reward system. Successful dieters have discovered that having something to look forward to at the end of each milestone helped to mentally and emotionally shorten the cycles of long-term success.

whenyou are setting your target weight, try to be realistic and not dream of a petite figure, if you have never been even once before you gain weight. The final success is the acceptance that there is bound to be failure along the way to reaching your goal. In spite of this temporary, gird yourself and carry on with your objective of reaching your goal. Remember, only you canget yourself off the cough to exercise, cook that healthy dish, and move the body!!

According to a survey done by John Hopkins University, 67% of the people diet to be healthier, 21% to look better, 6% for a better love life, 3% for a better job, while another 3% do it just to be safe and healthy.

So what if you treated yourself to a goodie! You can still compensate for the damage by cutting the consumption of some other food item in your diet. It does take sometime to change old habits.

Vitamins provide energy

Many people swallow vitamin tablets in the morning, believing that they provide energy boost. The truth is that the energy is provided by the nutrients in the food that are eaten. But since you are most likely cutting down on what you consume, some supplement is good.

Spot exercises can reduse fat deposits

Spot exercises only tighten muscles, and have no effect on fat.

Margarine is better than butter

The man-made margarine has absolutely no nutritional benefits, whereas butter a natural food, has anticancer and antiviral properties. Butter may even help in the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer's disease. The only benefit that margarine has over butter is that it is free of cholesterol. So use butter sparingly

Caffeinated beverages can energise

Coffee, tea and soda are stimulants that energise you quickly and then let you crash. It is therefore essential that you take an equal amount of water after the caffeinated drink.

Lemon juice is good for losing weight

While the vitamin C in the lemon juice helps repair worn out tissues, it does not destroy fat or have any action on it.

Saunas help in shedding off kilos.

You may feel rejuvenated and great sitting in a sauna, but what you lose is the weight of water. Once the fluids have been replenished, the weight comes right back.
