The One and Only Way to Lose Weight
There is only one way to lose weight
There really is only one way to lose weight. You have to burn more calories than you use in a day. It sounds clinical and counting calories is probably going to be involved. Every weight loss program on the market today uses one or a combination of the following methods. So whether you do it yourself or through weight loss programs, this is the only way you will lose weight. Find many to choose from at www.natural-weight-loss-programs.com.
1. Eat less calories
Eat less calories than you use in a day. You have to make your body convert stored fat into calories for energy. This doesn't necessarily mean you have to eat less food. But you are going to have to modify your eating habits. More on that later. Unfortunately, your body can also use muscle as energy too. As a survival instinct, your body is programmed to keep as much stored energy as possible. When you start to eat fewer calories than your body normally uses in a day it will begin to think that food is not as plentiful. You will begin going into starvation mode. Your metabolism will slow down to use as little energy as possible to get through whatever hard times your body thinks it is going through. Fat is the storage vehicle for your body's energy. But energy can come from both fat and muscle. Muscle, however, uses energy (calories). So it makes sense that your body would use your muscle first (through catabolism) and then go after the fat. Your body's main initiative, after all, is to keep you alive as long as possible. So it's going to be somewhat of a battle to balance out getting rid of fat over muscle. That's why exercise is so important when trying to lose weight. Read on for the important benefits of exercise.
Exercise will preserve the muscle you have, and it will increase the amount of fat you burn. As long as you are not eating more than normal to compensate for the exercise, you should be burning more calories and hopefully building muscle which will require more energy and thus also burn more calories even when you aren't exercising. It's always good to check with a health care professional before beginning any exercise program to see how much exercise you are allowed. Of course, different exercises will use more calories than others.
3. Raise your metabolism
While exercise can help to raise your metabolism there are other natural weight loss programs and pharmaceutical ways to go about it too. Several natural programs can be found at www.natural-weight-loss-programs.com. Again, check with a health care professional before using any kind of products to raise your metabolism. Even some of the natural ones can be dangerous to your health. Your thyroid is what controls your body's metabolism. It's a small gland located in your neck. Hypothyroidism and other conditions may cause it to function less than normal. If you have trouble losing weight, it may be an indication that you need a thyroid supplement. Your doctor can determine this by doing a simple blood test. It may return things back to normal so you can lose weight easier. Doctors can also prescribe weight loss medications, which not only suppress your appetite, but they also boost your metabolism to enhance weight loss. Stimulant medications can have other adverse side effects such as increased heart rate and high blood pressure. Fortunately, there are some natural alternatives that do not have these side effects and can help you lose weight. One of the more popular supplements today is green tea extract.

Personalized Weight Loss Plans -- Breaking the Yo-Yo Cycle of Failed Diets
Dieting will continue to fail most dieters, unless personalized weight loss plans become more available. A diet designed for a mass market will fail because the diet assumes everything is constant or the same between dieters. Not so. Personalized weight loss plans have a better chance of succeeding because the personal habits, ideas, and goals of each dieter are used in the design of the diet. It comes down to, "What is good for you may not be good for me." Personalized Weight Loss Plans -- The Positives Personalized weight loss plans, regardless of diet type, are successful for a variety of reasons. An ongoing study comparing dieters on personalized plans and dieters on standardized plans so far demonstrates the following: 1). Dieters stick with personalized plans. The longer you are in a weight-loss program the more weight you will lose. The trend (no statistical analysis has been performed to date) suggests personalized plans keep dieters motivated longer. This may help dieters get over the 6th to 8th week hump -- weight loss was easy early but around week 8 becomes difficult. 2). Dieters on personalized plans normalize eating. To be successful, a person must learn to reassociate eating with hunger. Learning to slow down to allow satiety to catch up with eating is one way to effect this change. This is why binge eaters tend to have the least success with losing weight long term, even though many will appear to be doing very well early in a diet. Personalize their diet and they have a better chance of long term success. 3). Dieters on personalized plans build support networks. Dieters with personalized weight loss plans generally seek the help of a mentor, guide, or friend more often than dieters on standardized plans. They tend to build networks of support. Why? Dieters on personalized plans are succeeding. This naturally leads to more motivation to continue and investigate other avenues to help continue their success. 4). Dieters on personalized plans are physically active. A study from the early nineties concluded that exercise helps long-term weight loss but not short-term. I say it doesn't matter. Eventually, a large enough study that is properly designed will show that exercise at any time in life is beneficial. This can not be stressed enough...exercise is paramount to your success. Dieters exercise more with personalized weight loss plans. The best kind is a mix between aerobic exercises and resistance training. The result is toned muscle and protection from age related weight gain. 5). Dieters on personalized plans have control. Dr. Gene Ogden in her study back in 1993 found that the women who believed their weight problems were caused by their own choices, rather than by metabolism or genetics, were more successful. They believed that they were in control of their weight and, therefore, believed they could lose weight. Personalized Weight Loss Plans give dieters control. Personalized Diet Plan (PDP) Study -- The Family Associates in Dallas, Texas. Lead investigator is Dr. Steve Walters. According to Dr. Walters, there are approximately 25 overweight patients in each arm and that full publication is expected by August 2005. This article does not represent final statistical results nor is it associated with The Family Associates. Interestingly, dieters think they can't lose weight because of circumstances beyond their control. The blame is usually placed on their "slow" metabolisms, their dad's large frame or the diet itself. The solution...personalized weight loss plans. Put the dieter in control, let him own it, and then watch him succeed. Now, this is not letting the dieter design his own diet, instead, tweak the diet he chooses to fit his lifestyle. Pamela Peeke, M.D., M.P.H., assistant professor of medicine at the University of Maryland in Baltimore and author of Fight Fat Over Forty (Viking, 2000) said, "You have to believe that you will drop some weight and then begin that journey. Once you believe success is possible, you'll feel less intimidated by the challenges along the way." Healthy Living! Michael A.
