Kick-Start Your Weight Loss Program
Exercising can be a very hard to get started with, but it will be worth it in the end if you can keep going. Having a plan that involves exercise and a healthy diet can be the motivation to get started. Follow these tips to create a plan that you can stick by and that will give amazing results.
- Get a Plan – Make a plan that you decide to follow and have it start gradually and then increase as you get more comfortable. The plan should be subtle at first and achievable, if you make it too strenuous, then you are less likely to follow through with it.
- Music – Get your groove on and it will motivate you to keep working out and sometimes at a faster pace. The beat and vibe of the music is shown to increase the level of effort used in your workout.
- Eat Breakfast – Many people focus on calories and ways to cut them. However, cutting breakfast is the worst time to cut calories. Breakfast is your kick-start for the day and sets the rate of your metabolism, so make sure you are eating a healthy breakfast every morning. If you eat a hearty breakfast, that means you will not have a need to overeat on the rest of your meals that day.
- Drink Water – By drinking water, you will feel fuller and not be ingesting empty calories as with soda and juice. Water is effective at keeping the body functioning and hydrated. Drink water with every meal and ensure that you are well hydrated.
- Get Motivation – Pick an event that is coming up in your life and make that your motivation. Maybe it is high school reunion or a beach vacation, where you want to look amazing. Use this as your goal and try your hardest to lose the weight and make a statement at that special event.
- Pre-Eat Before Meals – I know it sounds strange, but eat a healthy snack before you begin lunch or dinner. This is like an appetizer, but it is healthy and filling like a salad. This will fill you up prior to beginning your normal lunch or dinner and prevent you from over-eating.
Remember, Don’t Quit When You’re Tired, Quit When You’re Finished.

By having an outside motivation like vacation or a big social event, you can really push yourself in a short time frame to get the results you are looking for. Kick-starting your diet is very important, since many people start their new year’s resolutions out and fade away within a month. Make the plan do-able and slowly progressing to ensure that you will stick with it and actually meet your end goals. If you set the goals too high, you will feel discouraged and not want to continue. Exercise and diet work together to give you a new lease on life.
