Are You Over Weight? Want To Get Rid of That Extra Fat? Take a Look at This

I know how it feels to be an obese. I know that it really hurts you when you can wear nice designer clothes and go out with your friends; I know that it really hurts when you walk on streets and people look at you and make fun. Don't worry. I will take you on a journey of exercises and diet which will surely help you lose that extra pound.

I had read some where: "Love It or Hate It Lets Motivate Each Other to Do IT". It means to get motivated to workout more on the process to lose weight. Stick to a decision that you will lose weight in whatever way you thought of and will end up looking slim, fit and healthy.

Here are few tips and suggestions on exercises and nutrition:

The first thing that comes to my mind when I talk about losing weight is nutrition. You have to prepare your self on diet and nutrition for the rest of your life or there is a high chance of gaining that weight you had lost.

Cut off that high calorie and fast food. If you don't, you will not only put on extra weight but will also end up in many heart related problems. Completely reduce the intake of fat food from your daily meals. If you feel hungry and want to eat something all the time then grab an apple or an orange instead of a chocolate bar or a bag of chips. Avoid fat, sugar and alcohol in every way you can. Remember that many foods include hidden fat and sugar (eg: chocolate, full cream ice-cream). And the most important of all is to drink 8-10 glasses of water a day to stay fit and hydrated.

The second most important thing is exercises. Using exercises to lose weight can be a little tricky but with proper guidance and help you will surely see yourself very fit and healthy in future.

BE ACTIVE: I mean to say go on a brisk walk after your day's activities. It is a great way to burn off that rich dinner you ate! Take the stairs instead of elevator in your office and any other buildings you visit. Go on a short jog in the mornings or evenings. Swimming, skipping, running and some simple push-ups can also be a great exercise.

NO RIGOROUS ACTIVITY: Though aerobics and heavy exercises help you to lose that extra pound quickly, but they are not always recommended as you get too tired and at times become very restless.

Regular physical exercises are a part of effective weight control. It helps to control your weight by using excess calories that otherwise would be stored as fat.

Simple workouts like pushups, cardio, weight lifting, brisk walking, jogging and dancing (till you sweat) can help you a lot in reducing weight. And the most important of all is warm-ups. Do not forget to warm-up before and after your workouts as it helps in a good blood circulation process.
