The Secret To Long-Term Weight Control Is...

weightloss1You may have heard this many times that most diets don't work and the fact is that it's true.

Many people will start on a diet but the percentage that will succeed and achieve the weight loss that they desire will only be small compared to those who fail.

And when they fail many people will try again or change to another diet in the hope that the next diet will work.

One of the problems that face people who are on a diet is the fact that they are constantly thinking about food. It is on their mind all the time because they are on a diet. They talk about it to others; they tell everyone they're on a diet and as a result, food becomes the main focus of their thoughts throughout the day.

Does this sound like you?

Because of this constant thought of food, coupled with the fact that in most cases when you begin a diet the first thing you have to deal with is hunger (something too hard for most to endure) dieters often fail at achieving their weight loss goals.

Understandably, No one wants to go hungry for any period of time and it is only human nature to do everything we can to ensure we get sufficient food so that we won't starve. So if you're trying to maintain a diet that constantly leaves you feeling hungry all the time then you're most likely destined to failure too!

It's just too difficult and life wasn't meant to be that hard.

The sad outcome for most people who forced themselves to endure this period of hardship is to get back onto the 'eating too much' bandwagon once the diet is over and pile the weight back on that was lost while on the diet, albeit at a far faster rate.

So that weight that you might have struggled to lose over a period of months will go back on in weeks leaving you feeling more disappointed than you would have been had you never dieted in the first place. So what's the solution? Well, the answer is simple:

To Achieve Long-Term Weight Control, Create a Personalized Weight Control Plan!

For instance, eat moderate portions at regular intervals of fruits and vegetables (for vitamins, carbohydrates and fiber), grains (for carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and fiber), protein (for amino acids) and dairy products (for calcium, unless you're lactose intolerant). For the average person, between 2000-2500 calories per day is appropriate. Less for women, on average, and for those seeking rapid weight loss. If your vegetarian or have a health problem like hypertension or diabetes, create a plan that's right for your specific needs.

A personalized balanced diet, coupled with age-appropriate, moderate and regular exercise, will lead to a healthy percentage of body fat, good muscle tone and a well-tuned system. As a result, you'll find that you'll feel better and look better too!
