Secrets About Losing Weight

Is there a secret way that you can lose weight, that is not available to the general public? A way to lose weight that is so secret that the only way you can access this information is by paying for it. You get a vision of people hiding in dark alleys creeping up to you and asking you in hushed tones if you want to lose weight. They want your money and that is the bottom line.

I have always thought that the very meaning of the word secret was not to share it with anyone. So why are people prepared to share a secret with you for a price? How many other people will by this secret? and how can it be a secret if so many people know what it is through purchasing it? Why don't health institutions, the medical professions, and government health sites know about these secrets? surely its in their interests that people stay healthy.

The fact is that losing weight does not come under the realm of secrecy. Anybody can lose weight if they can burn more calories than they eat. Don't fall into the trap of buying weight loss secrets, because the only thing you will be thinking about afterwards is 'why did i waste my money'.

Weight loss is all about common sense and any product that seems too good to be true, probably is. Your body is no capable of losing weight quickly and keeping it off, in a healthy way. Simply because your body needs time to change. Your body is constructed in a way that it takes time for it to change. If you try to speed up this process, then your body will stop changing. This is why when people adopt an extremely low calorie diet to lose weight quickly, they find themselves losing some initial weight in the first couple of weeks, but after this any weight loss grinds to a halt.

Muscle loss will account for a large proportion of the weight that you may have lost. Muscle is an expensive commodity for you body to keep because your body requires more calories to keep hold of muscle than it does to keep fat. So when you cut back drastically on calories, your body will offload the muscle and hang onto the fat. The perfect solution is to try and lose the fat and hold onto all the muscle weight you can; however a low calorie diet will not allow that.

If you really want to lose weight there are 3 factors that you will need to apply to your life.

You will need the desire, the motivation, and the willpower to complete the actions required to reach your weight loss goals. Desire alone is not enough; You must take action to reach goals of your desires. If I desire a cup of coffee, I am not going to get one until I motivate myself to get up and fetch one. Desire means nothing unless you act on it. It's only by taking action we can achieve things.

Switching to eating healthier food is extremely important. Don't just cut back on calories straight away. Begin replacing unhealthy foods with healthy foods. Instead of eating all your calories through 2 or 3 meals a day, split them so you are eating the same amount of calories but over 4 or 5 meals a day. Just by doing this will set you on the road to losing weight as it will make your metabolism more effective. If you are going to decrease calories make sure you do not cut more than 400 calories a day from your diet. Once your body has become accustomed to this drop in calories, cut back couple of hundred more calories from your daily diet.

Weight Loss is just one side effect of exercising. There are a whole host of others, which are all beneficial for you. Exercise will give you many benefits, not only physical but mentally you will feel much happier. Cardio is necessary for weight loss as it burns calories; do not neglect a weight training routine. Remember the idea is to keep muscle and lose fat. Weight training will enable you to keep much of your muscle you would have otherwise lost through cardio alone.

Forget all the fad diets, miracle diet pills, and quick fixes. Walking on water is a miracle; changing water to wine is a miracle. Losing weight is not a miracle. Weight loss is an achievable target for anyone if it is done with a sensible approach. Don't be tempted to buy any secrets to weight loss.
