A No's in Losing Weight
AS I have said there should be things that you should know not to do in losing weight. And here are some I have done and should have not and some from my friends' experiences, so let's all learn from all of these:
Do not skip meals, especially breakfast
Food you consume during breakfast is burned all throughout the day. Plus starving in the morning might make you gobble up food during lunch. And that's a diet disaster you should avoid.
Do not eat today and not tomorrow
Same with skipping meals, only this time you do it in larger scale. But no, you will again end up getting starved and be gluttonous the next day. Plus starving might cause you nausea or you'll be light headed all throughout the day due to hunger.
Avoid eating self appointed diets
You might have missed something about it. The best way is to ask a nutritionist. Having one will help you become a good food picker without compromising your health.
Do not skip your exercise
If you think that you can go by diet alone, then you are wrong. You can't live and lose weight by diet alone. You have to get fit and work out too. They should go hand in hand and complement each other.
Avoid thinking negativities
Meaning, do not despair if you haven't shed any weight for the first week. You should know that a great part of losing weight is on the way you perceive it to succeed. You think it will work, you do it then it will work.
Avoid crash diet pills and instant slimming products
You will be doomed. Believe me, I had it for a two days and I decided to give it up. Side effects included palpitation, headache, diarrhea, light headedness and many more. Read: What You Need To Do Your 5k Running
Do not skip from one diet method to another
It would be like botching up your routine too. Stick to one and hold it longer. When time elapsed that you put effort and it never paid off, then that's the time to consider a switch.
Do not rule out any cosmetic procedure to lose weight
Cosmetic surgeries might be jumpstart to a healthier you. If all else fails, then turn to cosmetic treatments and have it maintained after. Do not close your mind to possibilities.
