Healthy Long Term Weight Loss Tips

By Carl Walker

Getting to the best weight for you and then keeping your weight there is a target that everyone should aim for. All too often, it's a case of "easier said than done".

What do you need to do to achieve long term weight loss?

For starters, stop skipping from diet to diet. One month you may be on the South Beach diet, the next month you could be on a low carb diet, then it's on to the GI diet. Yet all the time, your weight stays stubbornly high. Sound familiar?

You're not alone. You need to rethink your whole dieting ideas.

Don't worry, it's actually not that bad.

After all, naturally thin people stay thin without the need for diet. Annoyingly, they seem to be able to eat anything yet not gain a pound. That's not fair!

Follow these simple tips and you'll start to view food the way a naturally thin person sees it.

Only eat when you are hungry. Sounds basic, doesn't it. Yet how often do you eat "because"?

Take the time to notice and actually taste your food. Rather than gulping down all the food on your plate, savor each mouthful.

Stop eating when you are full. Not when your stomach simply won't take any more food.

And if you leave some food on your plate in the process of doing all this, that's fine. Don't go on a guilt trip about starving people in some faraway place. Instead, order less food next time.
