While quick and easy diets, such as the one meal a day diet may be appealing to people looking for quick weight loss solutions, there are other, less extreme ways to lose weight safely and healthily.
Anyone interested in losing weight should consider one of the following safer alternative ways to shed some pounds. These include:
Exercising regularly: People who want to lose weight should get at least 150 minutes of cardiovascular exercise, such as running or aerobics, each week.
Keeping a food diary: A person trying to lose weight can gain insight into their food intake by keeping a journal of food eaten and when.
Getting support: People who are trying to lose weight find support from loved ones or fellow dieters valuable.
Eating a balanced, nutritious diet: People looking to lose weight should eat enough fruits and vegetables and limit (that’s limit, not quit. Also, some ‘junk foods’ are less junky than others) consumption of high-calorie junk food.
Talking to a doctor: A doctor can check for any underlying medical conditions, such as thyroid problems, that may be causing a person to hold on to unwanted weight.
The best weight loss solutions are sustainable, long-term changes to a person’s diet and lifestyle.
People who want to lose weight should start by making small, sustainable changes to their diet and lifestyle. It is best to consult a doctor on how to safely lose weight, particularly if a person has any underlying medical conditions.
