Self Motivation for weight loss and healthy cooking

By: Peter Goligher


This article is a general one in that it wont give you facts and figures about weight loss, what programs work and donít work and the best drugs to take for weight loss. This article is about self-motivation.

Self-motivation is the main and underlying reason why a lot of people are over weight. A lot of people can blame weight increase on metabolism not being the fastest or they went through a period of stress. This is all well and good and quite understandable. However, if you want to lose weight, having no motivation is what makes you keep the weight.

Now we have all went through periods of mass gain weather it is a bit of a gut or an extreme case of gaining over 50 pounds. But to lose that weight growth, we need to motivate ourselves.

One of the underlying reasons for weight gain is the extreme amount of fast food places. They are everywhere on corners, main streets and side streets. Its unbelievable, you can step outside your house, walk 5 minutes and get a kebab or a burger king. This is the first thing you need to change as if you donít cut the fast food out, you can seriously forget about all the other ideas you have for dropping the pounds. Just think of a salad. It donít have to be boring with just leaves. Add chicken, turkey or even steak to your salad with a real tasty dressing. Salads can be some of the nicest foods in the world.

To speed up weight gain other than diet, would be exercise programs. This doesnít have to be strenuous exercise. Lets face it, not many of us like putting ourselves though unbearable misery. A simple jog or even a walk can help speed up the metabolism. In fact, experts recommend doing a small regime every morning. Even if it is only 5-10 minutes, as this will kick start your metabolism and boost it through out the day, beginning the process of burning fat cells. Many people underestimate this method, but it works. If you consider every skinny person, model and body builder you have seen, they do exercise in the morning for this sole purpose, to kick the metabolism and fat burning.

This again is where the self-motivation comes in as doing exercise in the morning is difficult to do. But a simple walk in the morning round the block will do the trick for the beginning.

This again is where the importance of breakfast comes in as people think skipping it will keep the weight off. Well that is a big fat wrong because as soon as you have your lunch or snack, your starved body will absorb overtime on everything, including all the saturated fats in which you are trying to keep off in the first place. Donít skip breakfast; eat a bowl of cereal, oats or some fruit to simply give your stomach to work with.
