The more people I meet that are overweight, the more I realize just how frustrated they are with their current situation. Most people have tried repeatedly to lose weight and are still stuck or potential heavier. There are certain things when losing weight that need to be done on a consistent basis if you want to have any chance at weight loss and shedding those extra pounds.

The need for losing the weight

The fact is that overweight people are more prone for high blood pressure, diabetes and heart problems. There is also the risk for having joint problems, personality disorder, inferiority complex, depression etc. There is a real need to work consistently towards weight loss, as the risk is way to important. The following lists are things that you should incorporate into your daily schedule. This over time will help you lose weight

Get the help of the doctor to set goals

No job can be accomplished in one go. Any work approached step by step will become easy, be it weight loss or weight gain. It is imperative to set goals while working on weight reduction. The goals set must be sensible and achievable. Setting a goal to reduce 3-5 kg per month may be possible and becomes a sensible goal. Trying to lose 20 kg per month is unrealistic.

It is always better to get the help of the health professionals to set and achieve goals. Regardless of sex if you are active you will need just about 2500 calories per day in energy in. Inactive men and women will need about 2000 calories. If you eat 200 to 300 calories less everyday losing 1 pound per week is possible.


Exercise for at least 30 minutes every day is a must for weight loss. The exercise can be anything like walking, jogging, swimming, yoga, aerobic dancing etc. but the exercise must be done regularly and continuously for a minimum of thirty minutes. The idea is nothing but using more energy than one eats. This way one will use the energy stored in the form of fat. If you can ensure that the exercise makes you sweat then you are on the right track.

Eating less sugar and less fat

Eating sugar and fat in excess really does nothing more then add more fat to the fat cells. If the body has no need to use the sugar and fat as energy it will store it for later use, which never comes. Every day pay attention to what you are eating and the contents of how much sugar and fat there is. If you can consciously limit sugar and fat everyday, you will be on your way to losing weight

Eating wide variety of food

Think about consuming a variety of fruits and vegetables every week. I know you don’t like them, well that is an issue you need to get over. High quantities of fruits and vegetables will go a long way at not only providing the nutrients your body needs, but they are very good for metabolism and help raise it so you can keep your weight loss moving forward and eventually balanced.

Fad diets

Fad diets are not the answer. Put all your diet books on the shelf and simply start eating better and doing more exercise. Do this consistently and your weight loss will be successful.

By just following the points discussed above weight loss can be successful safely.
