My weight loss tips for losing fat and staying slim forever.

You must change your relationship with food and this starts in the mind, you must except that you cannot eat poor food choices and lose weight. You must get it in your mind that you must eat like a slim person.

Slim people graze when they eat which means you must eat smaller meals more often, this stops you feeling hungry and keeps your metabolism high throughout the day.

Eat when you are hungry and stop when you are full, don't over eat as this will give you too many calories and make you gain weight. So the rule is simple think before you eat, ask yourself am i really hungry.

Hungry or Thirsty? Sounds simple but the problem is your body sends a signal to your brain telling you that you are hungry or thirsty but your brain sometimes cannot tell the difference. So the best way to deal with this is if you feel hungry then drink a glass of water (this contains no calories) and then wait 20 minutes, if you are still hungry then go ahead and eat some food.

Thin people eat natural food so only eat foods from natural sources. Eat wholegrains, lean meats and fish, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds and pulses. These foods provide your body with all the nutrients it needs and help keep you feeling fuller for longer. While keeping your blood sugar stable.

Refined sugar is a massive problem in the western world and it is found in foods like sweets and cookies. When you eat refined sugar you raise your blood sugar dramatically and your body will release insulin to bring it back down to normal levels, however that means taking the sugar from your blood and storing it as fat.

Look out for the hidden sugars in products like bread and pasta. Anything that is made with white flour will spike your blood sugar just like sweets or cookies. Be carefully of disguised white flour in brown bread which is just white flour dyed brown to make it appear healthy. The best option is to read the labels and look for the words wholemeal or wholegrain.

Exercise is essential for weight loss, so find something that you like to do which involves moving about. If you like to do it then you are more likely to keep doing it.

Burn the fat off by gaining muscle, the more muscle your body has the higher your metabolism will be and the more calories you will burn whilst sitting on the couch. Get lifting some weights regularly and start burning that unwanted fat.

Be prepared for hunger by carrying healthy snacks such as a handful of nuts or some fruit with you so you wont get tempted with the junk food that surrounds you. Also write a food diary to keep track of what you are eating and only weigh yourself once a week. If you start weight training don't worry if you gain weight at first as muscle weighs more than fat.
