Habit is habit and not to be flung out of the window by any man,

but coaxed downstairs a step at a time.

Let me begin this article with this searching question. Are you still sticking to your Jan 1, 2011 weight loss resolution? Trust me, New Year’s COMMITTING To a LOSING WEIGHT therapy is one of the most popular 2011 New Year resolutions. But, keeping to that commitment seems easy. Regretfully, it’s also one of the most common resolutions to break. If you have lapse in keeping to your diet, you are not alone. Don’t worry!

Lucky for you! There is still hope. Although six months has passed yet there is still some redeeming time for you? Just think about the following reminders when trying again to focus losing weight into perspective. At least for the balance of this year 2011.

Let’s begin with the first and foremost tactic no.1. i.e.

Sustaining Tactic No. 1: Adopt Healthy Patterns

It's no secret that when you're trying to lose weight, you need to be extremely conscious of food sizes and how many calories you are taking into your body each day. It is also important to make sure that the calories you are ingesting are coming from a variety of healthy, nutrient-rich foods from all four food groups. It is best to eat at least five servings of fruit and veggies a day along with lots of whole grain (wheat, rice, oats, bran and barley) items such as whole wheat cereals and breads.

Low-fat dairy items along with lean cuts of meat, fish and beans are also excellent dietary choices. You should always make sure you're getting at least 20-35 grams of fiber because fiber provides a feeling of fullness. And also helps to keep your blood sugar levels stable.

Let’s pause a moment and let me to ask you this personal question! Are you getting into this, or it is rubbing you the wrong way? If no, then let’s continue! Alright?

Sustaining Tactic No 2. Give Up Poor Eating Habits

Poor eating habits would include eating when you're not hungry, overeating or eating larger portions than are necessary to fill you up. You should also beware of your intake of certain foods and food ingredients and use them in moderation. Limit your intake of sodium, saturated fats and high-calorie/low-nutrient sweets such as cookies, candy and cake.

Let continue by giving a shout to tactics number 3. OK?

Sustaining Tactic No 3. Exercise: Daily

When trying to lose weight, it's not all about cutting calories. In fact, it's absolutely imperative that you add physical activity and cardiovascular exercise to your schedule so that you are also 'burning’ calories. The more intense the activity or exertion, the more calories you will burn. In addition, exercise gives you more energy, increases well-being and can help with toning and muscle-building when you are losing weight.

It’s good to incorporate weight-bearing exercises into your regimen in addition to cardio. Why you ask? It’s because strength training increases skeletal muscle and muscle burns more calories than body fat when you're working out or even at rest.

What you are about to read next is no big secrets, no great luck nor a grand slam home run. It is simply this!

Sustaining Tactic No .4. Be Satisfied With Small Gains In The Initial Stage.

When you begin a diet and exercise program, you may find that you're losing weight very slowly. Maybe at first you're cutting back on calories a little at a time. Or maybe you're easing back into physical activity. Whatever the case, you have to be patient and also be satisfied with even small gains. It may seem easier to "throw the hat in" when you don't see quick, immediate or drastic results. On the other hand falling back into old habits will set you back even further and negate any positive gains you've made. Set goals, plan ways to reach your goals and execute your plan (which usually requires a concerted daily effort

By the way, if there is one thing I want you to take away from this article, it is the next tactic number 5. This is so important that I make no apology if I have to repeat it again!

Sustaining Tactic No 5. Daily Take A Multiple Vitamin

A report published last year in a major medical journal stated that most of us, for a variety of reasons, are not getting enough of the essential vitamins and minerals we need from our daily diets. We should therefore consider supplementing with a multiple vitamin each day. It's even more if you are really lack the essential vitamins and minerals!

In certain case, it’s important to consider supplementing with an extra dozes of multiple vitamin especially when you start exercise more and limiting your caloric intake.

To summarize, this article can be boiled down into five main points. Firstly, adopt healthy patterns. Secondly, give up poor eating habits. Thirdly, exercise daily. Fourthly, be satisfied with small gains in the initial stage. And lastly, take a multiple vitamin every day. Simply to remember? Agreed?

There is no other better to start and now conclude this article with questions! “What’s the primary difference between people who are successful weight loss devotees and those aren’t?” My stock answer is always this! Quite simply, successful slim and trim people are those who have asked better questions and as a result, gotten better answers to weight loss tactics and strategies.

As such, I am reminded that when the automobile was in its infancy, hundreds of unsuccessful people tinkered with building them, but only Henry Ford stood apart by asking, “How can I mass produce such a machine. As you know, the rest is history! Hence, I truly believe that if you were to let your imagination run wild, where might your questions lead to you? A fitter and healthier person, I believe! With this I end my case!
