To women placed on the undesirable side of the BMI scale, it can seem overwhelming to set about fixing their problem as they have many distractions and disenchantments along the way. They need to adopt a comprehensive weight loss approach. It should involve planning with careful consideration of all factors that can bring down the morale in one’s attempt to don the perfect body.

Losing weight should be approached with due consideration of the factors that can pull you down in your effort. With respect to this, the following tips are crucial.


Plan your food; do not go on a diet

Most women tend to be too strict with themselves when planning their “stay slim” diet. Instead of dieting, the best thing to do would be to substitute unhealthy foods such as saturated fats, sugary items, white flour items and fried stuff with healthy options. Whole wheat bread, sprouts, green leafy vegetables, fruits (preferably citric ones such as orange and lemon) and even nuts in limited amounts are some healthy weight loss foods.


Make exercise a part of the routine

Find an exercise regime that suits you best. It can be difficult for overweight woman to sustain in any sort of plan for physical activity. So, choose those exercises that are compatible with your interests. If you enjoy being in water or looking at the picturesque sight of nature, put these in when you are planning your fitness regimen.


Don’t be tempted

Do not go to a grocery store with an empty stomach. You need to keep a tab on such circumstances that might tempt you into having unhealthy food.


Tell your family and friends

Tell your near and dear ones that you are serious about losing weight and that they should not do anything to spoil your plans. Ask them not to tempt you into eating unhealthy or junk food. At times, some people ask you to relent after watching you work out for a few days. Avoid them. If you find that your family is not supportive of your decisions, find support elsewhere. It would take some doing to stick to your plan all alone. You may also stick motivational quotes at convenient places to keep yourself focused.


Drink as much water as you can

Water has been found to be a very effective body detoxifier and is especially beneficial in relieving constipat. You will want to have more water with an exercise regimen but make sure you drink at least 3 litres daily.


Get a good night’s sleep

A healthy adult needs seven to eight hours of sleep at night. If you are sleep deprived, it your weight loss efforts may take a nose dive. Not getting enough sleep can lead to overeating.


Losing weight requires more than a quick-fix solution. It is recommended that you check with your doctor before starting any weight-loss regimen.
