Healthy Weight Loss Tips - 7 Tips For Safe & Long Term Weight Loss

In this article we will look at some healthy weight loss tips that you can use to lose weight safely.

Ready? Let's get right to the tips ...

Tip # 1 Avoid Diet

Avoid short-term weight loss diets. Most of them cut calories at one point that they would not have enough food to feed 10 years a day.

Very low calorie diets create a series of physiological events that cause you to lose water, muscle and fat.

Muscles are your number one friend in the battle for weight control. You don't want to lose anything!

Muscle damage eventually causes your metabolism to slow down, which is why very low calories fail to maintain weight.

Tip # 2 Eat a Balanced Diet

Eating a balanced diet is not a "diet" but a supportive way of eating.

Your meal should consist of ...

• Fat-free protein

• Complex carbohydrates

• Vegetables

• Good fat

Throw in a few servings of fresh fruit daily and wash them with plenty of water.

Many diets have cut one of the items above. For example, your low-carb diet consumes most of the protein and fat.

Short-term reductions in carbohydrate intake or cycling can help you lose weight quickly. However, many diets tell you to cut carbohydrates to very low levels for a long time.

Carbs provide energy for your brain, exercise and all other activities.

Carbohydrates play a major role in muscle maintenance. Maintaining or adding new muscles is important for long term safe weight loss.

There are very many healthy weight loss diets. Go far. You have been warned!

Tip # 3 Hit The Weights

Many people believe that you need to do cardiovascular exercises to reduce fat and then lift the load for that "tone".

What happens is that people do too much aerobic exercise and almost no training.

Too much aerobics leads to muscle loss, and this leads to slower metabolism.

I'm not saying skipping aerobics - it's just part of what you need to do. You need to challenge your muscles through resistance training or weight gain.

Tip # 4 Take Lessons

To stay injured when you exercise, you need to know the correct posture, how to lift weight properly, how to breathe, and how to stretch out safely.

Get the right instructions through a good book, video, or Fitness Professional. Try to get some reviews and testimonials.

Take a lesson. Don't miss this important weight tip.

Tip # 5 Lose 2 Pounds A Week

Two pounds is not much, but here is the deal ...

Two pounds is a healthy amount that is dropped weekly. If you lose more than two pounds a week, you are likely to lose muscle along with fat.

The exception is if you are overweight. You may lose more than two pounds a week when you start exercising and changing your eating habits. You will lose a lot of water and fat initially.

As you get closer to a healthy weight for your height, the pounds you lose each week should drop to one and a half pounds per week.

If you eat well and follow a balanced exercise program, you will lose two pounds of fat per week while maintaining or increasing muscle.

Tip # 6 Don't Be Too Big

You don't have to work 2 hours a day to lose weight!

Exercising too much may result in too much training.

More can cause ...

• minor or major injuries

• muscle and joint pain and pain

• feeling tired

• Muscle loss

Exercises should last between 30 and 60 minutes and nothing more.

Don't go out every time you exercise. Daily intense training will lead to overtraining.

If you are new to exercise, do 4 to 5 days for a few weeks to get your body into new activity.

Believe me, you can get the results you want by working 5 or 6 days a week for 30 - 60 minutes.

Tip # 7 Avoid these pills

This weight loss pill ad is painful! They often succeed in making people believe that a bottle of caffeine pills is a cause for those who cheat before and after pictures of people who lose weight.

Here's the deal ...

Some studies have shown that caffeine improves metabolism and promotes fat release. Using caffeine 30 minutes before exercise may help you burn more fat. Pre-workout caffeine may be very helpful for those who have never drank a daily cup of coffee.

I told you to avoid caffeine pills. If you would like to try again, use this checklist:

• know the ingredients,

• follow all instructions,

• assessing your tolerance in small doses,

• don't take them 7 days a week,

• Don't overdo it!

Also, do not use caffeine pills for approximately 3 or 4 weeks. Leave the pills only for 2 to 4 weeks for your body's natural energy system to recover.

Couple more things ...

Consult your doctor if you have any conditions or medications.

Lastly, do your research and look for reviews before you buy any extra weight.

There you have it - 7 healthy weight loss tips that can help you lose weight safely and lose it well!
