Losing Weight Step By Step

“I need to lose weight! I’m going to go on a diet!” How many times have you said this to yourself? If you are like most people, probably many, many times. But, how many times has it actually worked? Again, if you are like most people you’ve probably lost a few pounds in the short term, but then gained them all back – and more – in the long term.That’s because simply going on a diet isn’t going to help you lose weight and keep it off.In general, you’ll eventually cheat on your diet. If you don’t, you may find your diet unsustainable – because you won’t be getting the right amount of nutrition in your daily meals. This is particularly true if you try out fad diets – because they are based on starvation, not healthy eating.

Going to the gym is something that’s easy to do for a short period of time, but it’s nearly impossible for most people to stay motivated and keep going. Even if you do, you probably don’t know how to work out effectively to maximize your results, and you may even end up hurting yourself.

The truth – no matter what diet plans and books may have told you – is that there is no quick-hit, one-step way to lose weight and keep it off. It’s part of an overall process that requires effort and a change in how you look at weight loss and your body.

You have to go through an entire step-by-step process before you can really not only get your body in shape, but start living healthier and make sure that you stay motivated and the weight stays off.

This is why many people have started going to professionals when they become serious about losing weight. They understand that experts can help them through all of the steps, so that by the time they have started to really lose weight it will stay off.

These professionals tend to work at fitness camps, like Live In Fitness in Playa Del Ray, CA. They are trained to help people like you lose weight through a step-by-step process that will work in the long term.

Here’s a sample of what steps most people will have to take when they want to achieve their fitness goals, live healthier and finally feel good about their body again.

Step One: Realize that your weight is caused by bad habits that are very hard to break. Understand that you need not only to break these bad habits, but also develop new, healthier habits that will stay with you for years to come.

Step Two: Isolate yourself from your toxic environment. You won’t be able to break your habits if you are still living in the same environment. To get started, you need to take yourself out of your environment and the temptations that you face there. Once you’ve broken your habits, you’ll be able to return to your environment and resist temptation. But, you need that break from your environment first. This is one of the main reasons people go to fitness camps when they want to lose weight in the long term.

Step Three: Realize that a huge part of losing weight is psychological. You have to work on your mind just as hard as you work out your body. Being overweight has a lot to do with how you look at yourself and your body. It’s about understanding who you really are and what psychological pressures have caused you to become overweight. Until you address your psychological issues related to your body, you can’t lose weight in the long term. This is why most reputable fitness camps have psychologists on staff.

Step Four: Find out how to eat food that is not only nutritious, but also tasty. If you try to just eat salad every day, you’ll get bored and go back to junk food just to have something that tastes good. But, it’s possible to eat food that tastes great and is healthy for you that will help you lose weight. Fitness camps not only have chefs on staff who can serve five-star healthy meals, they’ll also provide you with the recipes so that you can recreate those meals when you go home. You’ll be eating food that will help you lose weight and tastes great!

Step Five: Become part of a community that is dedicated to losing weight and living healthier. It’s nearly impossible to lose weight on your own. You need to have a support system in place that can help you when you start to lose your motivation and start thinking about giving into temptation.

Step Six: Find out your BMI. Most of us don’t know exactly how overweight we are or what our ideal body weight is. But until you know those basic facts, you can’t set realistic goals for yourself.

Step Seven: Create a varied and realistic workout routine for yourself. There is no one set of exercises that will work for everyone. People have unique weight loss problems and distinct bodies. An exercise routine that might be great for someone else might not work for you at all, and could actually be dangerous! When you go to a fitness camp, you will be personally evaluated and they will create a personalized exercise routine that will work for you without putting you at risk for injury.

Step Eight: Realize that losing weight and staying in shape can be fun! So many of us look at weight loss as a chore – which is not a mindset that will keep you in shape for the long term. The truth is that you can have a great time while losing weight – once you find ways to have a good time doing so. This is part of the psychology of weight loss – and something that can generally only be learned at a fitness camp.

Step Nine: Get ready to show off your new body and feel great about yourself! By the time you’ve let trained professionals take you through all of these steps, you’ll be in the best shape of your life – both mentally and physically. You’ll have greater self confidence, and look great! Your life will have changed for the better because you let the experienced professionals at a fitness camp help you get your weight loss on track for the first time in your life.
