How You Can Lose Weight Starting Right Now

If you're like many people, you probably think losing weight is a whole lot harder than it seems. While this may be true for some, the truth is that even the biggest food lover can start losing weight immediately. All it takes is understanding a few core principles.

One Simple Formula

Except for those with unique medical conditions that affect how the metabolism functions, anyone can follow a simple, easy-to-remember formula and begin losing weight right away. Essentially, losing weight comes down to the following: calories in versus calories out. To put it simply, as long as you burn more calories than you consume, you will lose weight. Now, how you choose to go about this can vary from person to person based on each unique personality and lifestyle preference.

Accept the Con

With all the fast-food restaurants popping up all over the place, and constant commercials that advertise yummy-looking food designed to satisfy a craving in a hurry, it's no wonder more and more people struggle with their weight. In fact, many people simply don't realize the expertise that goes into marketing in a way that makes unhealthy food choices nearly impossible to resist. Even restaurants that offer healthy choices often focus the vast majority of their advertising on the greasy, sugary items rather than healthier selections. However, you don't have to buy into false advertising. Yes, the food may taste good, but the images of healthy and slender people chowing down on a double bacon cheeseburger with fries are completely false.

Eat to Live

So, you may be asking yourself how in the world you're supposed to resist such blatant, in-your-face temptation. That's where a shift in thinking can really help you out. Although food is something to be enjoyed, the real purpose of eating is to provide your body with the nutrients it requires to stay functional and energized. That's it! Remind yourself of that each time you begin to think of food as an emotional filler or reward. Once you put that thought process into action, you'll be amazed at the transformation in your mood, your body, and even your energy level.


Okay, so we've all heard the oh-so-common phrase "diet and exercise and you'll be fine!" Although there is some truth to that, not everyone wants to spend his or her life in a gym or at the health food store. In fact, many people simply can't or won't do that. Fortunately, there is a simple solution, and it's way more basic than anyone has ever told you before. Just move. It really is that simple. Instead of sitting for hours in front of a computer screen, get up and walk to the other side of the house and back. Or, better yet, go outside and take a short walk. If you begin in that manner, chances are, you'll be inspired to walk a little longer next time.

In today's culture of fast-food restaurants and increasing time restraints, it's easy to understand how many people feel overwhelmed by their current size or lack of health. One of the worst things you can do is to berate yourself or take on a feeling of guilt. No body shaming here! Simply remember the following and you'll be just fine: Food manufacturers and restaurant owners want to sell you their food no matter what it might do to your body. Eating is for living. Moving is a natural function and is meant for good. Most importantly, it all boils down to one simple formula; calories in versus calories out.
