How to Lose Weight and Stay Trim and Fit For Life

Just remember that as a car needs fueling to do work or embark on journeys, so also do you need to eat so you can perform your daily tasks. Again, think of it, if a car is not doing any work and the fuel is sitting there idle, you necessarily do not need to fuel it again. So also experts have concluded from research that you do not necessarily need to eat if you are not hungry – especially if you’re looking to losing some of those excess kilograms of flesh or fat. Experts say however, for healthy weight-loss routine, it’s got to be a programme stretched over a period of time.

The American National Institutes of Health mathematician and obesity researcher, Kevin Hall says about his studies pertaining to healthy weight-loss, “Our findings strongly suggest that weight-loss programmes should not be short-term efforts…, Rather, they take persistent lifestyle changes. The primary determinant of success is sustained adherence to healthy changes in diet and physical activity.”

Experts say you must start to take charge of or eradicate your uncontrollable urge to eat even when you are not hungry. Thus it is time to master your urge and even eliminate every manner of addiction that may add to building up your weight. In as much as you are not to expect magic in a few days, still, they say it does not really have to take a life time to achieve your desired proper weight that makes you happy with yourself - which is very important.
