Did you know that you can lose weight without dieting? You might have to change a few things with what you are eating but you don’t have to diet. As a matter of fact, for some people dieting might be unhealthy for them because of medical problems but at the same time, being overweight is very dangerous for you so you’ve got to do something to lose weight.
Moderation is the key to success when it comes to losing weight without dieting. Yes, you can eat the things that you love and still lose weight but you have got to cut down on what you are eating. Many people make the mistake of going back for seconds and thirds even if they are not hungry. Why? They’ve gotten into the habit of eating that much when they don’t really need it. You should only eat until you are satisfied. If your stomach hurts by the time you’re done eating then you’ve had too much. Never go back for seconds. Eat a small and healthy sized portion.
Don’t have soft drinks or juices when you eat. Instead, have some sugar free tea or water. There are plenty of healthy drinks that you can have while you’re eating that doesn’t have sugar in it. You’ll also find a lot of healthy tea that is sweetened with Splenda or something else and is already made and ready to serve so you don’t have to even fix it yourself.
A lot of people don’t see themselves in shape and therefore, they don’t make it. Look in the mirror and start trying to picture a healthy and skinny you. Each day try and picture yourself that way and know that you can make it if you keep everything in moderation and not overdo things. If it helps you can even give yourself a talk and say out loud to yourself “I am beautiful and healthy”. If you had problems saying that you are healthy then that means you have low self esteem problems and might want to think about seeing someone professional to help you overcome those problems so you can lose weight without dieting.
Get a partner online or in your local area and encourage each other with weight loss. Send each other emails about what you had to eat that day and support one another. There are a lot of forums online focused on weight loss and you can find one that is active and let them know what is going on and I bet that you’ll find someone to team up with in no time.
One last tip with losing weight without dieting is to eat on blue plates. Doctors have said for a very long time that blue plates help you to not eat as much because the color for some reason helps with decreasing the appetite. I tried this and I found out that the myth was true and I was not as hungry and did not go back for seconds when I was eating from a blue plate.
Never give up on yourself and put yourself down when you are trying to lose weight. You might have your good and bad days but keep on eating healthy and within moderation and you should do just fine.
