I know all this from experience. You see, I have had a fluctuating weight problem for years and years. I get heavy from eating junk food or from failing to use good portion control and then lose all of that weight back very quickly. I have used everything to lose weight quickly. I’ve even taken strange pills that make my heart race. They were advertised as a healthy way to lose weight. Let me tell you, these products are not healthy. There is a healthy way to lose weight, and it is very obvious. Exercise and keep a healthy diet.
A weight loss diet is not necessarily a healthy one. Many of the so-called healthy ways to lose weight actually put a great deal of strain on your body. Using some new fad such as the Atkins diet which requires you to eat massive amounts of fat and protein is not a healthy way to lose weight. If your common sense is not enough to tell you this, you should look at the research. Many experts have linked the Atkins diet to liver shutdown. Weight loss should be good for you. It should not threaten your health.
If you have struggled with chronic weight problems all your life (as I have) and still have not found a healthy way to lose weight, it is time to get some support. You can do many things to find a healthy way to lose weight. You can join Weight Watchers, you can join a gym and get a personal trainer, or you can make a pact with some friends to encourage each other to eat right and exercise regularly. Many of us overeat because we feel stressed out and disconnected. Just having a support group can be a healthy way to lose weight. It is always good for you to have friends who encourage you to do what is best for your health.
