Weight Loss is one of my priorities right now. Crazy time to start now during the Holiday Season but is anytime a good time? What you eat and how much weight you are going to lose are directly correlated. One thing is for sure, you have to devise a meal plan that has a high success rate. With that said, your lifestyle is going to be a determining factor. How much time you will have to exercise and how much weight you want to lose will determine if you will lose and how much.
Those that cannot exercise at all need to create a strict weight loss plan. This plan should involve a very low amount of carbs and be rich in protein. Stock up on eggs, meats, and nuts to add to your diet. You are also going to want to eat healthy vegetables like broccoli. A typical diet for the day would consist of something such as eggs for breakfast, nuts to snack on before lunch, a salad with chicken for lunch, and fish with broccoli and other vegetables for dinner. You can look up other recipes to add to your meals as well.
Someone with a more active lifestyle may want to add some fruits to their diet. Healthy carbohydrates can help a person function to maximum capacity during a workout. Most carbohydrates should be eliminated from meals after lunch, unless you workout during the evening. If you workout at night then have your last bit of carbs before your workout. You should workout before your last meal of the day. The last things you eat should should be vegetables and protein. This is the type of weight loss meal plan that is healthy for someone that exercises often.
How much weight do you want to lose? If your goal is to lose hundreds of pounds then you are going to want to follow a very strict diet plan. 90% of the time you should follow your diet, and 10% of the time you may slightly stray from your diet. Someone that wants to lose 10 pounds on the other hand can practice the 80 to 20 rule. Where 80% of the time healthy eating is practiced and 20% of the time they can splurge a little. Someone that exercises is also a lot more likely to lose weight fast so they don’t have to focus entirely on dieting.
Your best bet is to do what works for you. The first couple of weeks you should try your best to lose a few pounds. Try and figure out if working out and exercising helps, or if simply dieting alone is enough. A weight loss meal plan is necessary to lose weight. You cannot hope to exercise alone and never diet. Make sure you try your best to diet as much as possible until you reach and exceed your weight loss goals, that way you won’t feel bad if you gain a few pounds back.
Living in North Central USA this time of the year can be a hardship when it comes to getting out side to do the best exercise for me. Walking! I love to walk and it really does help to drop the pounds. Today we are at 1 degree and light snowfall. No walking today! I do want to add in closing, I have dropped 11 pounds since October 14th! Woo Hoo!
