Your weight is regulated by energy balance, and calories are part of that equation. Some diets may promise you that counting carbs or eating a bunch of fruits and veggies will make the extra pounds drop off. But when it comes to weight loss, it is calories what counts the most. Weight loss comes down to burning more calories that you take in. You can do that by reducing extra calories from food and beverages and increasing calories burned through physical activity so that you keep a negative energy balance towards losing weight. Once you understand this equation, you are ready to set your weight loss goals and make a plan to reach them.
But this might be a long trip and you do not have to be it alone. Ideally you can get a personal trainer to be your weight loss coach or alternatively talk to your doctor, family and friends for support. Also, you should plan it wisely. Try to anticipate how you will handle situations that challenge you and the inevitable minor disappointments they might come on the way. Those times are also important and necessary to know more about yourself and plan new changes and improvement strategies and also for reviewing goals and establishing new ones... here are quite a number of hints -> [+INFO]
If you have serious health problems because of your weight, your doctor may suggest some sort of surgery or medications for you. In this case, you and your doctor will need to thoroughly discuss the potential benefits and the possible risks of initiating a weight loss plan.
Remember the bottom line ...
The key to successful weight loss is a commitment to making permanent changes in your diet and exercise habits, and most important, you should give yourself enough time because "Rome was not built in a day"
