( — February 8, 2016) — Best Weight Loss Tips that Keep Weight Off. Losing weight is always a challenge. Whether you want to drop five pounds or 105 pounds, dropping the weight will always be an effort. Sadly, keeping the weight off once it is gone can also be a challenge.

To make this entire process easier, there are certain things that you can do to help you drop the weight and keep it off for good.

Concentrate on the Positive 

Do not look at your weight loss efforts as dieting without pleasure. Look at all the foods that you can enjoy and how easy it will be to make this weight loss effort a success.

Track what You Eat 

One of the best ways to lose weight is to track everything you eat. Write it down in a notebook or use an app. When you see your eating habits in black and white, you will know how to change them.

The Hunger Scale Should be Tilted 

Instead of waiting until you are starving to eat, try eating on a schedule even if you are only a little hungry. Additionally, instead of eating until you are completely full, stop when you are almost full. Changing when and how much you eat is a real benefit for weight loss.

Breakfast is Mandatory 

Studies continually show that people who eat a good breakfast will eat less throughout the day. Make sure that you have a filling breakfast that consists of good carbs and protein. This will give you energy to burn and keep you feeling fuller for a longer period of time.

Eat at the Table 

When you eat in front of the television or standing in the kitchen, your body does not register when it is full. You are concentrating on other things instead of paying attention to what you are eating and if you are full. By dedicating your time to eating, you will have more control over how much you eat.

Fruits and Vegetables Matter

Increase the amount of fruits and vegetables you eat each day. You will have lose more weight and your overall health will improve from increasing your vitamin and mineral intake.

Drink Water Before Eating

Water is essential to any healthy diet. If you take advantage of this health benefit and drink before eating, your stomach will register as full much faster, cutting down on the amount of food you consume.

Eat a Little Every Three to Five Hours

By keeping your metabolism running all day burning calories that you eat, you will burn more throughout the day. After a little while the metabolism slows and has to restart during the next meal. By keeping the “motor running” all day, you will process your calories more efficiently.

Indulging is Okay Every Now and Then

By allowing yourself to indulge once or twice a week on food you enjoy, you will keep your weight loss goals. Over time, people fail their diets because they feel as if they are being denied all the foods they love. If you incorporate all the foods you love into your diet, you will feel satisfied and will be more likely to follow the plan.

Try Nuts as a Snack

Anything in a shell is good for your diet. Nuts are high in protein and have some good fats. Also, the chewing motion that is required to eat these foods is great for curbing hunger pains. Chewing actually releases endorphins into the part of your system that makes you feel better. This is why emotional eating is always so comforting, even though it is very bad for you. By combining the chewing motion with a great snack like nuts, you will maintain your weight loss goals.

Find a Friend for Support

Talking to someone about your goals, successes, and setbacks will help you achieve and maintain your weight loss goals. Never underestimate the power of emotional support.

Be Realistic

If you want to drop weight, do not convince yourself that it will happen overnight. Weight loss that is healthy and safe takes time, especially if you have a lot of weight to drop. Make sure your goals and how long it will take to achieve them are obtainable. This will help you stay on the path to success.

Be Compassionate 

When you belittle yourself about losing weight, cheating on the diet, or any other demoralizing thing associated with weight loss, you will lose the battle. Be compassionate and encourage yourself each day. This positive attitude is what will make the weight loss program work.
