You Are Never Too Old to Get Fit / Lose Weight or Start a Fitness Routine

Posted on

These days, more and more people who have struggled with weight loss are turning their lives around and becoming healthier and and more physically fit. There are also a lot more people wanting to start fitness in some way but do not know how.

There are many people that will feel that they are too old to start looking into fitness and health or going to the gym and lifting weights or simply feel that there is no hope for them as they have had a weight problem for their whole life.

This is a mental barrier. In past articles I have mentioned the importance of routine and the effect of a routine or habit becoming more solid and embedded the longer that it is followed or allowed to continue. These habits or routines can be good or bad.

If you are in the situation, maybe over 50s or even over 60 and you would like to lose a bit (or a lot) of weight or start a fitness program and you feel too old to do so, the first thing you need to do is realize that you are wrong!

If this applies to you, you need to understand that to have results with a weight loss or fitness program, you need a couple of things with regards to mind-set.

First off you should realize that it is never too late. If you get things right for 15 to 20 weeks, you will lose a substantial amount of weight and become a whole lot fitter. I'm sure that you would agree that in the grand scheme of things 15 – 20 weeks is not a long time at all.

Getting it right?

Once you understand that you can be the weight and fitness level that you would like, you can then look at educating yourself. It's all well and good observing the countless diet plans and fitness methods out there today today claiming that they are your best choice.

This is very confusing to people that are new to this game and because of the volume of these products, many people will flit from one idea to the next as these ideas pop up and never see a single diet or training program through through the end as there is always something that looks better or promises to yield better results

This leads to little or no results and further backs up your belief that it is too late for you.

The best thing that you can do here is to stick with one theory. If you know someone personally that has had great results, the kind of results that you want, you should educate yourself to this theory and follow it until you get your results. For example:

You know someone who has lost a lot of weight from a low fat, low sugar, calorie controlled diet and three weeks into this hear of someone who has had similar results from a fast diet. Do not switch to … Read More

The Benefits of Maintaining Weight Loss

Posted on

Permanent weight loss is a goal we all strive to reach. Reaching one's ideal weight makes most people function at their best. It's probably one reason why it's also known as your happy weight. When you are in your ideal weight, your body functions better. You feel lighter, and of course, you look better. Keeping your happy weight prevents obesity related health problems. Diseases which affect a huge part of the population.

Losing weight may be hard for some people. For others, it's more difficult to maintain the weight loss. According to studies, 85% of those who lost weight regained it. Experts theorize that as a person's weight drops, metabolic activity decreases. As the person continues to lose weight, metabolic activity continues to drop. This makes it increasingly harder to lose more weight. Some people may refer to this as a "plateau" in their weight loss efforts. A lower metabolic rate makes it difficult to maintain weight loss. When the person returns to a normal diet, the pounds previously lost are restored. Maintain a healthy weight has lots of benefits. It improves heart health, lowers blood pressure and regulates blood sugar levels.

Maintain weight loss requires commitment. People who want to lose weight must adhere to a diet plan. There are only two ways to lose weight. One is consuming a lesser amount of calories than your daily requirement. Another is to expend more than what you eat. If you want to lose weight faster, a diet and exercise plan is advisable. Going on a crash diet is not the answer. It slows down metabolism and deprives you of essential nutrients. Once you get back to a normal diet, it will just be a matter of time before you regain the pounds you lost.

Weight cycling or yo-yo dieting is losing and regaining weight multiple times. Diet experts discourage weight cycling. Some studies suggest that it promotes high blood pressure, gallstones and high cholesterol levels. However, there has been no definite evidence to support these claims. Studies also deny that people who go on a yo-yo diet will have a harder time losing weight again. Weight cycling affects the mental and emotional aspects, however. Getting frustrated constantly makes you less desirous to pursue your weight loss goals.

People know the importance of maintaining their ideal weight. They've seen how it improves the life of those who successfully lost the extra poundage. What usually stands between success and failure is determination. When you want something badly, you work towards it. You never stop until you achieve it. Be determined to maintain weight loss. The reward is good health and a better quality of life. … Read More
