Dieting Sucks? 5 Tips To Keep Your Weight-Loss Hope Going

Nobody likes dieting. Generally, a person may put on about 5 to 10 pounds a year. So what can a person who hates dieting do to keep off the excess weight?

Here are 5 simple tips to help you:

1. You Must Have The Right Attitude

When you are younger, you can eat whatever you like, anytime, and yet do not get fat. Yes, but do you realise that your metabolism then was working hard for you? Now, you cannot just eat and hope the same thing will happen to your body. You must be disciplined to moderate your eating habits. You must have that right attitude to pass that pizza and cheese cake.

2. Eat Only What You Need

Do not stuff yourself silly during meal time. Avoid those "all-you-can-eat" buffet, and during meal, stop when you fill slightly full. Do go for those fresh fruits as a rewarding dessert instead.

3. Be On The Move

If you hate to go to the gym like I am, but love to watch the NBA or PGA programs on TV, then don't just sit on the couch. Imitate the moves of your favorite players executing their moves. Just watch out not to break any of your furniture. You may want to bring your kids for a walk just after dinner. They will appreciate the talks and companionship, not to mention enjoying the fresh evening air and exercise.

4. Keep Cool!

Do you know that when you get stressed, the consequences can be detrimental to your health? You will smoke more, eat more and drink more. Just remember to take in deep breaths and count to 10 and your anger or stress will subside. Keep a cool head.

5. Remove Those Temptations

If you are easy prey to snacks like chips or crackers, then the best way would be to clear those unhealthy foods from the house. Instead, stock up fresh vegetables and fruits in your fridge. They are good snack alternatives to your chips and crackers.

Here you have it, 5 simple tips. Not to worry if you can't do all 5, just choose one that you are confident of achieving. You can try the others slowly.

Remember, you must have fun on your weight loss effort, and most important, be happy. Yes, you can still lose weight easy even when you are not undergoing any dieting program.
