If we perceive weight loss like a job, then we have certain things that are expected of us when we go to work. We use skills and tools to accomplish our tasks in an orderly and productive fashion. We can employ skills like that in daily life as well. In fact, most of us have, and few recognize they have established routines.

I have given up on the supplement route; they do not work by themselves. However, taken for the right reasons (not weight loss), they can greatly benefit the body, such as the desiccated beef liver.

I have established seven such habits to aid me in weight loss. First, if I am hungry and I snack, I pick small portions and do not grab a can of Pringles (okay, every once in a while). I will portion out some cheese, carrots, bell peppers, or something else with a health factor to it. It is meant to bridge the gap between meal times, not be an entire meal.

A second gate I have in place is that I avoid carbs, so if its a carb load then I will reduce the intake or opt for something different. This is not to say I do not have a sandwich once or twice a week. I just swerve and go around the carbs. It doesn't mean I will not plow through them.

Third, I have done the research and found out what my target calories should be for the day. You should use a simple online calculator. It will help you discover what is needed to gain, maintain, or lose weight. Regardless of who does the carb or calorie thing, both are compensated for here.

Fourth, I watch my portions. Portion sizes are where nearly everyone who counts calories and can't lose weight goes drastically off the beaten path. Ensuring I am counting portions fairly is something that cannot be cheated. The proof is in the pudding!

Fifth, I add a few calories to whatever I eat. Most calories are counted from raw or cooked products. However, reported calories rarely compensate for added sauces or condiments, vegetables, and other sides. So if I eat up to 200 calories, then I add another 50 to the count. If I eat between 200-600 calories,  then I add 100 calories to the number and I avoid anything over 600 calories. This method ensures I do not go over my daily allotted intake. Also as you lose weight, it is a good idea to get a new caloric intake count.

Sixth, I exercise 15 minutes a day with a whole-body trainer. I do not need more than this as the machine I use - the TotalWave. It works all the muscles in the body at the same time. The TotalWave does not ignore muscle groups, so there is no need to go overboard and hit the gym for hours a week to get that full-body workout. 15 minutes a day, four times a week is all that is necessary. Exercise is 30% of dieting and fitness. If a person wants to diet healthily, then it is crucial they have the exercise component included.

Seventh, I do not expend extra money on diet aids or food plans to lose weight. It not necessary if these simple tools are implemented. There is no need for a book to tell anyone how to do it. Just stick to the outline above, and it all seems to work out.

To recap I follow this simple plan: 

  1. Small portioned snacks to bridge the gaps (low cal/carb snacks)
  2. Avoid carbs as much as possible
  3. Know my target caloric intake for the day
  4. Count portion fairly (doesn't mean I can't eat two portions - I just count them)
  5. Add a small number of calories to compensate for extra additions to my food
  6. Exercise 15 minutes a day or more if you are not getting all the muscle groups
  7. Do not buy into diet fads promising miracle results

So now that I have put this in front of you, it's your move. What are you going to do with this information?
