I dont believe in any diets that say you can loose a good amount of weight in a short time, its just not healthy. The easiet and safest way to lose weight is a good diet and exercise. Its hard to start a good healthy diet and its hard to motivate yourself to exercise everyday at first, but if you just do it you will find the weight coming off in no time.I think its very important to establish a routine.
I use to weigh 185, and I got so tired of how I looked, I wanted to be thin. After I broke up with my ex, it motivated me to push myself to exercise and eat right, I ended up walking everday for 1 hour,maybe two if i had the time, and not just a casual walk, I powered walked.Then I slowly started jogging and the next thing i knew i was running 6 miles a day, and trust me, I never in my life would have pictured me as a runner, i never ran before. I started eating right, i had chicken,vegies,and a small portion of potatoes everyday for dinner. I lost 65 pounds!
I then gained about 20 pounds back after a year, I was in a relationship I felt comfortable in and started binging on crappy food at night. Just recently I cut out all candy,sweets,and things that were bad for me, I didnt even exercise and I lost that 20lbs, in a month. I didnt starve myself, I just ate salads and helathy sandwhiches, and chicken.
Its all up to you, those fad diets, pills,drinks arnt going to work. Its all about you and how you look at food and how you exercise. There is no easy way out, but you will find if you find a routine that works for you and a diet, you will loose weight and look great!
Its about eating to live, not living to eat, which was my problem back in they day. I always looked forward to eating, and once I was done with lunch I was thinking about what sounded good for dinner.
Now that I eat only healthy food, I feel better, if i do treat myself to lets say french fries I actually get sick from it cause my body is so use to the healthy eating.
Its tough at first but you can do it! Another great motivater for me was watching that show The Biggest Loser, that show is amazing.
