Easy to Maintain Diet for Quick Weight Reduction
Updated: Jul 29
There are a lot of people in the world who are trying to find ways to lose weight quickly. In this article, I write about a simple diet that worked for me.
I have always had an ongoing battle with my weight; however, a few years ago, I lost those excess pounds.
I have always liked the wrong types of food, as a result, have always been on the high side. I have to be very careful about what I eat as I seem to gain weight very quickly. In my life, I have tried many weight loss programs or diets; however, I have always looked for a way of losing weight without having to resort to starving myself or by having to do huge amounts of exercise.
I am not sure if you are like me, but I have always been annoyed and frustrated with people who seem to be able to eat seemingly large amounts of food without getting fat. I am sure I eat half as much as these people but am still twice their size, it is not fair! That was until a couple of years ago.
I decided I needed to find my weight loss program. I had to be realistic; I was aware that I did minimal exercise due to work and travel, and liked all of the wrong types of food. I loved the taste of fast food; this was only because of my busy lifestyle, though. One of my biggest problems was that I liked snack food, such as peanuts, chocolate, and chips.
I knew that most people would advise me to stop eating all of these fatty type foods, especially the pizzas and chips. They would also no doubt encourage me to join a gym and to go jogging every morning. Get real! Those gyms are full of thin people; if I go jogging, I might get mugged, and I am sorry, but life would not be worth living without my weekly pizza!
I decided that what I would do is eat a healthy breakfast, which would be muesli or oatmeal. I would have a relatively light lunch, such as a sandwich or salad; however, I could eat whatever I wanted for my early evening meal. The main thing and most difficult to implement would be that I would no longer be eating between meals. The snacks had to go!. I am not trying to say that this was easy to do; however, I had a need and was determined to lose weight.
For exercise, I decided to leave the car at home, wherever possible, and walk to more places. I also started taking my children to the park more often. At the park, we would play games such as football, tag, and Frisbee. It is incredible how much weight you can lose by having fun.
These things helped me shed most of my stubborn weight and reach a size I was happy with. Once the results started showing, my energy level and motivation were so high, I got right back to the gym and my healthy routines.
