Do you need to find the answer to lasting weight loss?

Is permanent weight loss important to you?

Dropping extra weight and keeping it off is really what a lot of people need to achieve. Of course, it's also good to drop weight as quickly as possible.

But quick weight loss isn't quick, if the weight loss is not permanent. That is why moderation and balance are so important when making any changes in your current eating habits!

In fact, when it comes to lastingt weight loss, the secret is to make only one or two changes at a time and make every change in moderation!

And if you are unable to maintain a change you are undertaking, make an immediate adjustment and keep adjusting until the change works for you permanently.

Fast is NOT fast, if it is not permanent.

To help you decide on one or two initial changes, here are five examples of possible changes in eating habits.

Only pick one or two from the list below, (or make a change or two of your own) that make the most sense for your immediate circumstances. It's your decision.

At the beginning of the change you are making, ask yourself: "Is this an adjustment I will be able to keep up with, as an on-going part of my life style, for the long run?"

Five areas of eating and diet where moderate adjustment in personal choice have the potential to contribute to lasting weight loss:

1. Portion size adjustment.

Three or four times each week, reduce your serving size to about half of what is normal for you. Do this whether you are eating at home or eating out.

2. Fried Foods.

Once foods are fried at high temperature many of the nutrients have been destoyed.

If you make a moderate reduction in the amount of fried foods you eat, you will be eating fewer empty calories that add unhealthy fat to your diet.

What feels right, as a starting point? Surely you do not want to reduce by more than half, based on your current habits. What can you maintain for the long run?

3. Foods high in fiber.

Foods high in fiber are more filling so, without thinking about it, you will tend to eat less, when you include foods high in fiber as a part of your meal. You will feel satisfied sooner and won't feel hungry as quickly, after eating these foods.

Another benefit of eating foods high in fiber is that they help your body to naturally 'eliminate' more effectively.

What are your favorite 'high fiber' foods?

4. Drink lots of water to fight fatigue and increase your energy!

Drinking plenty of water helps your body fight fatigue and helps you to feel more energetic.

There are many other benefits to be gained from drinking lots of water.

Having enough water in your system is vital for:

-being able to absorb nutrients most effectively, and

Drinking a generous amount of water is a vital part of lasting weight loss.

5. Make vegetables a part of your daily diet.

Eating vegetables is good for you, for many reasons. One reason vegetables are good to have in your diet is, they reduce the amount of calories you eat, overall, because they are low in carbohydrates.

If you have several vegetables you really enjoy eating, this may be another area where you can have a lot of success.

Move forward only when you feel you are ready.

Making one or two reasonable adjustments, that become a permanent part of your lifestyle, is a very effective way to achieve lasting weight loss.
