And to make matters worse, there are countless books and magazines out there that tell you what seems like something different every single month and this only leaves you confused and even more frustrated.
Well, never fear.
Here are 5 of the best quick and easy weight loss tips to help you lose that belly fat fast which you can easily implement into your program today.
And if you are serious about weight loss and make a commitment to put everything you’ve got into it, you will get to where you want to go on your weight loss journey in no time at all.
So if you’re trying to lose weight and have failed time and again, here are a few tips to get you started quickly, going full steam ahead in the right direction.
1. Stop Procrastinating… NOW!
No matter what the exact goal is that you want to accomplish on your journey to health and wellness, you need to get started at some point in time.
And one of the easiest ways to get started is to stop overthinking the whole process and just start doing something productive that will move you forward in the right direction.
Too many people procrastinate and put off starting a training program or nutrition plan until it’s way too late.
They make excuses and keep talking about it about it over and over but never really do anything that is productive.
All it takes is a small step forward and before you know it you will have a good amount of momentum going for you.
Start out with something small like:
- Skipping snacks between meals
- Taking a 10 to 15 minute walk outside after work
- Replacing one regular meal with a healthy one
- Buying a nutrition book or program online
You may even find yourself doing something a little bit more such as:
- Signing up for a gym membership
- Buying some type of exercise equipment for your home
- Booking a consultation with a nutritionist
- Enrolling in a group fitness class
It really doesn’t matter what step you take, the main point is that you actually take action and do something productive that will give you the momentum to keep moving forward.
Taking action just takes a little bit of discipline, but once you get started, keeping the ball rolling will be far less difficult.
The point is, don’t be one of those people who put it off before it’s too late.
The consequence for procrastinating when it comes to your health is that you go to your doctor and find out your health has been compromised because of your obesity, high blood pressure or cholesterol.
So quit making excuses and start something today.
And don’t be one of those people who think that there is a law that states you have to start on a Monday… take action today!
2. Set a Slow Pace and Stick to It
You may be thinking “Now wait a minute, you said QUICK and easy weight loss…”
Do you remember the story of the tortoise and hare?
No matter what the goal is in your life, taking the time and doing it right the first time will always get you farther than trying to get it done quickly.
It is a proven fact that those people who try to lose 10 pounds in a week, or a ton a weight in a couple of weeks, or in even a month for that matter, are simply setting themselves up for failure.
It’s like trying to sprint a marathon; just can’t do it.
So be one of the smart people who actually accomplish what they set out to.
Shoot for 1 to 2 pounds of pure healthy fat loss per week.
That’s an honest to goodness great goal to shoot for since you will be burning pure fat instead of dropping weight that consists of water and excess food in your digestive tract.
And that’s what the goal should be all about: fat loss.
As mentioned, weight loss really means nothing it if all you are doing is losing water weight along with burning up muscle tissue.
Your goal should be to lose pure belly fat.
So shoot for a small, manageable and natural weight loss goal every week and before you know it over the next year you’ll see a personal transformation that will amaze you!
3. Make Quality Investments in Your Health
Some so called health experts may tell you not to spend your money on anything such as weight loss supplements, protein powders, diet programs, training programs or even things such as weight loss hypnosis.
But in reality, all of these things are actually great tools that you can use to break through plateaus and help you lose the greatest amount of weight in the least amount of time on your weight loss journey.
If you’re going to spend your money on tools to help you in your battle against belly fat, be sure and spend your money wisely.
Invest in only the best weight loss products that your money can buy.
You always get what you pay for so make sure that you are only paying for the best.
Results are everything and user reviews have proven time and again that any of the cheap weight loss products that are a dime a dozen (such as most of the products you have seen on TV) are no better than doing nothing at all.
It’s no different from buying a Mercedes Benz C-Class as opposed to a Toyota Prius.
There’s going to be a huge difference in the quality of handling and overall performance the high-end luxury Mercedes as opposed to the Toyota.
Just go take one for a test drive and see for yourself.
So take care and only spend your money on the highest quality weight loss products that are actually going to be beneficial for you.
If you’re not going to buy the best then you might as well not buy anything at all.
4. View Losing Weight as a Journey, Not a Destination
Embarking on a weight loss journey is not a fad or a temporary trip like a vacation anywhere you go somewhere and then come back.
Weight loss requires a lifestyle change that needs to be permanent if you want your results to be permanent.
This is one of the biggest mistakes that most people make when trying to lose belly fat.
People treat it as something they’re going to do for a short period of time and then revert back to their previous way of life.
This is a big mistake which always results in failure.
In order to lose weight and keep it off, you need to keep doing what you did in order to get there in the first place.
So this means you need to continue to adopt a new way of eating, perform regular exercise at least three days per week and incorporate the proper supplementation into your lifestyle.
It’s all a matter of creating new habits.
Think about it for a minute.
Everything that you do every day is a habit. And these habits create your way of life, or lifestyle.
By creating new habits that are healthy, you are going to be creating a whole new way of life for yourself.
And the weight that you lose will be a permanent part of the new you, not just a phase that you go through.
Best of all though, will be the new found joy that you have for life.
So don’t view your weight loss journey is something that is temporary. Accept the fact that this is your new way of life and enjoy each and every day of it.
5. Know That Your Success isn’t Measured by the Scale
Getting caught up in the numbers on the scale is one of the easiest ways to sabotage yourself, kill your motivation and destroy your dreams of attaining the lean and sexy physique you desire.
The number on the scale is just that; it’s just a number.
That number doesn’t mean success or failure.
You see, it’s not all about losing weight; it’s about losing fat.
So if your body burns up a pound of fat while simultaneously building a pound of muscle, the scale would show that you didn’t lose any weight.
But in reality, since muscle is denser than fat and takes up a whole lot less space, losing a pound of fat and gaining a pound of muscle the same time would result in some serious inches lost!
So the absolute best way to measure your success is by how many clothes sizes that you drop.
There are probably people that you know who have dropped three sizes but didn’t lose that much weight because they actually built muscle and burned fat at the same time.
And in this case, you will look absolutely amazing!
So quit making the mistake of judging your success by the numbers on the scale and instead go by what you see in the mirror.
This is what you really want isn’t it?
That’s the bottom line; we all want to look better naked!
