What is the best weight loss plan? Most people can lose weight by choosing a good diet plan and sticking to it until they reach their weight loss goal. However, if they go off their diet and return to their former eating habits, the weight comes back. A better plan to maintain a healthy weight is to make a permanent change in their way of life. This blog post outlines some of the basic changes needed.

Toss out all the bad and unhealthy food

Check your kitchen cupboards and refrigerator for calorie rich, high fat foods. Throw them out, or donate them to a food pantry if you do not want to waste them. Now you can stock your kitchen with foods and ingredients that are healthy. If those fattening foods are not available, you will not be tempted to eat them even though you know they are not good for you.

Stock up on healthier options to cook

Go shopping with a list of nutritious foods, and stock your kitchen with healthy foods. Make sure you include ingredients for recipes you typically make, but look for the low fat and low calorie varieties this time. Also look for recipes created just for people who want to lose weight and eat healthy foods. There are online sources where you can find recipes for delicious foods that will not contain a lot of fat and calories. Also, look for recipes that include nutrition information, such as the fat, calories and cholesterol in each serving.

Do some low calorie snack and meal prep

If you enjoy a snack between meals, measure out an amount limited to about 100 calories into a baggie. It is easier to track your calories this way and helps you avoid eating more between meals than you intended.

If you know you have a healthy meal at home that you can quickly prepare, you will be less likely to grab a hamburger at the drive-through on your way home. Make double recipes so you can freeze serving size portions which you can microwave for a fast and healthy meal.

Rethink portion sizes, especially if you are dining out

Most people have gotten used to the larger serving sizes they get in a restaurant. These servings are double or triple the portion sizes you should be eating, so concentrate on putting less on your plate at a meal. If you are eating out, take half of your meal home with you instead of stuffing yourself at the restaurant.

Get plenty of rest to restore your energy

Adequate sleep is necessary for a healthy life as well as reaching a healthy weight. If you are well rested, you will have more energy and be more active. Exercise is important to reach and maintain weight loss, so do not allow yourself to lose sleep and be too tired to exercise.

Cut out the sugar for good, switch to water

Many people do not realize how much sugar is in a single serving of soda. Even if you switch to diet drinks, water is still more healthy for you. Toxin buildup in your body can cause you to feel sluggish and tired. Water helps flush these toxins out, so you feel more like living the active life that is good for you.
