Speaker A: I can proudly say that I lost 80 pounds of unwanted fat and have kept the weight off for 3 years without starving but eating a combined balanced meal. If I did that, so can you! The bottom line is to keep the weight off, that unwanted fat, which is so hard to get rid of and not just have the illusion of losing weight when in reality we are losing mostly water with crash diets. The best way to achieve your weight loss goal without starving is to follow a balanced menu checking your calories intake. Personally, I prefer a high protein and moderate carbs, as our bodies need carbs to function properly.
Speaker B: Throw away gas, kerosene and the electric cooker. Also throw away salt. Get as many fruit and vegetables as you can. There is no restriction on quantity, timing on intake. Try to consume as much water as possible as it increases the rate at which you burn calories. But don’t waste your calories on liquids. Cut out the soda, sweetened beverages and limit fruit juices, most of which are high calorie. Carry on normal work. I followed this diet continuously for six months. In the end I lost 23 kg. I took cold water baths as I am used to it. I did morning walk, cycling but no other physical exercise.
Speaker С: Good on you for deciding to lose weight! But you should know that there is no safe way to lose weight quickly, if you lose weight very quickly you will be a lot less likely to keep it off. So, definitely try to lose weight consistently but don’t plan on losing overnight. This is the most important and the first aspect of getting your perfect body shape. Many of us have done this mistake by aiming to lose too much but later found ourselves only in lack of self confidence. If you have a lot of weight to lose, try for 5 pounds, relax a bit and then go for 5 more.
Speaker D: The first thing I would suggest is to believe in yourself and love yourself enough to commit to losing weight as it’s not easy. Secondly, I would urge you stay away from quick fixes. No ‘starvation diets’, no gimmicks, no diet shakes and no pills. The key to weight loss is simple — you should burn more than you take in! Walk the dog, join a health club, take up jogging. Whatever you do, you’ve got to move your body as much as possible if you want to lose weight. Your results will be more significant.
Speaker E: То add to the very sensible advice previously given, there are some ‘tricks’ to make weight loss easier but bear in mind that you have to reduce the calorie intake and increase the activity level permanently. This means you will have to seriously change your daily habits if you want to have any lasting success. As most people have a fixed ‘set weight’ they naturally tend towards, it is more difficult to reduce your weight if you have been your current weight for a long time. What you need to do is to get hold of your life and begin to live right, to eat right and to relax right.
Speaker F: Starving by skipping meals is a mistake I have often made in my life, feeling silently proud how long I’d managed to go without food. This is completely misguided. Firstly, this puts extra stress on your body, raises your Cortisol levels and is therefore unhealthy, and secondly, it leads to craving sugary foods, which will sabotage your weight loss objective. Just don’t do it! Make sure you have regular, smaller meals — at least four a day but no snack foods in between like crisps or chocolate bars. This will improve your body’s metabolism drastically and your body’s ability to burn your fat.
