Beginning a weight loss plan and maintaining it requires hard work and a lot of self-control, but don’t get discouraged. There are many different weight loss plans that will work for you, so let’s begin. If you slip up don’t give up; put it behind you and continue. Not everyone loses weight at the same rate but try the tips in this issue to begin you weight loss Journey.

TIP # 1 FIBER!

A great way to reach your weight loss goals is to add more fiber to your diet. Dietary fiber helps you to feel fuller faster. High-fiber foods usually involve a lot of chewing and crunching, so you feel more satisfied when you eat foods which contain healthy fiber. Implement some green leafy vegetables and whole grain foods into you daily regimen.

One of the handiest tips gained from many decades of dieting is to drink an entire glass of tomato or V-8 juice with two heaping tablespoons of bran stirred into it. You may also use psyllium husks (which is found in Metamucil, etc), but if you are not in the habit of using psyllium, I would suggest beginning at a low dosage approximately one half teaspoon in a 8 ounce glass of water and drink it quickly, as it thickens very fast.

Try adding psyllium with your favorite fruits and vegetables and mixing up a yummy smoothie! (Note: If you are on any medications, you may want to consult your physician first for any possible side effects)

TIP #2 WALK!

Buy a pedometer and walk-off the pounds! Check how many steps you take on an average day, and try adding 1000 extra steps. This could be as simple as taking a walk round the block. Build up the amount of extra steps you take each day, by increasing the distance that you walk. Every step counts in helping you burn calories. Not only will you feel healthier, you will soon notice the pounds coming off!

TIP#3 EAT HEALTHY!

An all-natural diet doesn’t have to be your goal, but eating fresh fruits and vegetables is certainly preferable if you are serious about making a lifestyle change. Your diet should not only be about losing weight; it should also be about getting in shape and staying as healthy as possible.

A wonderful fall treat for someone that is trying to lose weight is unsalted pumpkin seeds. They are high in magnesium, which will help lower your blood pressure. You can also make your own pumpkin seeds after you’ve carved your Halloween jack-o-lanterns.

TIP #4 GO SUGARLESS!

Always try to keep sugarless gum available. Chewing gum can help suppress your hungry feeling and it tastes great too. In some cases, you actually are not hungry at all, your mouth that is looking for something to do. If you don’t like chewing gum, try sugarless hard candy or another low calorie snack to keep handy for snack emergencies.

Beginning a weight loss plan can leave you feeling discouraged. You want the weight to come off quickly as we all would like, but remind yourself that even though it won’t happen overnight, it will happen, so be patient and give yourself some time!
