Reach Your Weight Loss Goals

 Many wonder how they will go about reaching new weight loss goals as they venture on the journey for better health. Losing weight is something that many deem a simple task, but the reality is that it takes a lot of hard work and dedication to truly reach weight loss goals. With so many different diets and exercise programs, it's hard to determine what is truly an effective path for getting the results you desire.

 Weight loss is not a mystery, it's not voodoo, it's a science, and fortunately for you, science is based on proof elements. Diets are effective because we know how the human body responds to calories and fat. By learning more about your own body type you can gain a better understanding of the foods you need to eat and the exercise you need to get for effective weight loss.

Here are our top 5 tips for reaching your weight loss goals.

1. Kick The Sugar

This step may be the most effective step early on in your journey, cutting out sugars is the first step in getting your body back in tune and functioning properly. Think abbot everything you eat and drink every day, now take a look at the labels and calculate how much sugar you are consuming daily. From drinks to condiments, sugars are in everything and we consume them daily without knowledge of it most of the time.

2. Ditch The Carbohydrates

Carbohydrates are another major issue in the American diet that can contribute to weight gain and make your battle for weight loss quite a struggle. Cutting out the pasta, potatoes, alcohol, soda, bread, and unnecessary carbohydrates will speed up your weight loss progress and improve your overall health. Although very nutritious, beans also have a lot of carbohydrates and should be avoided if possible.

3. Stop Drinking

As mentioned above, alcohol is heavy in carbohydrates. Not only is alcohol unhealthy for you, but it's also the cause of weight gain in many Americans like nothing else. Alcohol can balloon a person weight in a very short period of time, beer is especially bad for weight gain and can make weight loss extremely difficult. If you are going to drink while you are attempting to lose weight, consider clear liquor like vodka or gin. This isn't an excuse to drink heavily, this is just an option that you should consider for limiting carb intake.

4. Join A Gym

Making a commitment and joining a gym may be the biggest step in the right direction you can make. Having a place to go where your entire reason for being there is exercise and weight loss makes getting into a workout rhythm that much easier. Meeting people, and having others to hold you accountable also makes it harder to give up. Join a gym that offers programs like Pilates, Crossfit, jiujitsu, aerobics, kickboxing, cycling, and other plyometric workouts that hyper-target weight loss.

5. Make The Commitment

You need to make the commitment, both dietary, and physically. Let others know about your commitment so that they can encourage you and provide you with the support you need to see this thing all the way through. So often people start with good intentions, make an emotional commitment based on a desire to lose weight, then after a few months they give up on their goals and revert back to bad eating habits and a lazy lifestyle. You need to make the commitment, find the support you need, and keep the course.

There are so many ways that you can make this journey easier for yourself, these 5 tips are just a few very simple things that can be addressed for a successful run at weight loss. Find a diet plan that works for you, limit portions sizes, cut out sugary drinks, and commitment to an exercise routine that will increase your heart rate and better your chances for weight loss. There are online resources that you can access if you need an online nutrition coach, macro nutritionist, or even a virtual trainer. Facebook groups, support groups, and the online community can be a great place to get the support and feedback you need to make your weight loss dreams come true.
