Adequate research on this issue, coupled with a consultation with a weight loss doctor or expert will be the first step towards achieving a healthy weight loss plan.

A Healthy Goal

A healthy weight losing goal would include to:

  1. Lose a modest and sustainable weight that will help reverse the risks and complications of obesity
  2. Aim to lose no more than 0.5 to 1kg of weight per week (that is 1-2 lbs per week)
  3. Introduce moderate exercise and diet modification that can be sustained over months and years
  4. Eat regular meals
  5. Avoid crash dieting or starvation to loss weight. You will soon pile on the weight again...called diet shock or yo-yo dieting
  6. Make sure that your diet program provides you a balanced diet to keep you healthy
  7. Book an appointment to see a weight loss expert who can help you through losing weight the healthy way, determine if you need surgery and the best intervention for you and checking on all your weight health parameters.

Practical Steps To Achieve Goal

There are varying practical and realistic steps that can be formulated to help losing weight the healthy way.

For me, it had to do with learning all the bad things I was eating and enjoying and getting them off my menu list and diet. It was hard to take that almost all fast foods are far from healthy, especially the ones that are fried.

I love fried foods as much as the next person (maybe more), but there is no question they put bad types of fat into your body, fats that can clog your arteries. Fortunately, most of those same foods can be grilled or broiled for an equally satisfying flavor. The more you do it the healthier way, you will be surprised how you don't feel sluggish or bloated after eating.

One of my most loved foods is French fries with lots of salt and ketchup. My mouth waters just thinking about it. But have you ever seen an illustration of a person's blood about 20 minutes after eating French fries? It looks like there are piles of garbage floating down a stream. This image should be enough to make you think twice before ordering French fries again anytime soon.

Why not have a baked potato instead, or pass on the fries entirely?

As you start to find out what types of food you need to eat to enjoy losing weight in a healthy way, you will be excited to discover that you can eat a large amount of food that keeps you loaded with energy, and feeling full.

For those too lazy to do the research and find out what types of foods you should be eating, here is the famous food pyramid for a healthy lifestyle . . . Study and Learn!

Another very important step towards losing weight the healthy way apart from diet modification is by undertaking reasonable exercise that is right for you. Your exercise should aim to:

  • Be a least 30 minutes every day

  • Moderate but intense, that will make you sweat and increase your heart beat

  • A type of exercise that your health would permit. Please check with your doctor what exercise will the right for you

Finally you should be able to tell whether you will need a weight loss surgery, and the options of weight loss surgery available.

Yes. You can lose weight the healthy way. Plan. Be committed and follow through your plan. You will reap a healthier and happy you.
