Theoretically, slimming is not a difficult process. Just limit the number of calories in our dishes, and additionally, start to move even a little. This condition must also last for some time depending on the planned weight loss goal. Why, even though the weight loss process itself is not complicated, there are so many obese people in the world who try to lose weight sometimes even for years without much effect?
How can we help ourselves to lose weight?
As you can see, not everyone manages to lose weight. Some people who lose weight for the most time of their lives. Although they are aware of what diet is most optimal for them, they choose low-calorie menus, sometimes even fast-like diets, whose authors promise to lose a dozen or several dozen kilos in a very short time. Sometimes they even manage to stick to a very restrictive diet. Afterwards, however, they quickly regain this weight due to the yo-yo effect. Surprisingly, these people repeat the same mistake almost indefinitely. They often do not accept that this way of reducing weight is ineffective. They don’t try other diets. In the event of another failure, they blame themselves for the lack of strong will. With each subsequent diet, their self-esteem decreases, and they still can’t lose weight.
How do you break this vicious circle of failure? How can we make a major breakthrough in our overweight struggle? First of all, you need to realize how much habits influence our behaviour. They decide that we repeat the same action indefinitely, although it does not bring the intended effects, instead of trying something new.
The awareness that there is such a thing as a habit and to a large extent shapes our lives can be a turning point for many of us. Learning how to deal with problems can be the key to fighting overweight. It is worth realizing that our character traits are not permanent, they are not given to us once and for all. We can change them at any time. We can learn new things and new strategies to deal with problematic situations. Being aware of your capabilities can change our approach to slimming and make us adopt a new, actually effective strategy.
What will help us lose weight once and for all?
If we want to lose weight effectively, we should watch people who have succeeded in this fight. It is worth analyzing their way of thinking when they started fighting overweight. Although the body of each of us is different and the diet should be fit to the needs of the specific person - it is good to look at the menu of people who have successfully lost weight without the yo-yo effect. We probably won’t find people who used fasting diets. It is important to realize that we have not gained weight in just two weeks, so we cannot lose it in such a short period of time.
Our weight is sometimes the result of even long years of negative eating habits. When we start a diet, we need to give ourselves a certain amount of time to lose weight. A huge proportion of people who lost a lot of weight used a varied, well-balanced diet. You should be aware that, despite the lower calories, our body still has specific needs for a certain amount of energy, as well as vitamins and minerals for proper functioning. Some of the people who successfully lost weight were losing weight under the watchful eye of a dietitian, some of them created their own menu. We have to decide for ourselves what path will be the most optimal for us to achieve our goal.
It is good to know how people who managed to lose weight behaved in times of crisis. It is not right that successful people have never stumbled. In many mishaps, they had momentary breakdowns. It is important, however, that despite a temporary breach of the diet rules, they were able to return to it and successfully continue it. Unlike people who never managed to lose weight - those who succeeded did not break down with failure. They agreed with on that we have no influence on past events, we only have an influence on how we behave in the future.
