Five Important Steps to Losing Weight

This is a guest page by Sachin.

When trying to lose weight it is important that you continue to eat properly, that you get enough exercise and that you drink plenty of water kept cool in your Westinghouse fridge. Bottled water tastes better than normal tap water and is convenient but it can work out to be quite expensive. Having a water filter installed will mean that you have a constant supply of pure healthy water. A water purifier will remove all the harmful bacteria as well as the chlorine which makes it taste unpleasant.

Here are five important steps to losing weight:


Losing weight should be done gradually, without following a fad diet. There are many diets out there that claim to help you lose weight quickly, but with most of these, once you stop the diet, people tend to put the weight back on, and sometimes even more. Fad diets are often unhealthy and by following them you are not eating all the right foods that you need. When dieting it is important to remember that there is no quick fix and that eating good healthy food is the best way to lose weight. You should be eating plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, lean red meat, chicken and fish and you should be eating minimal amounts of salt, sugar and processed foods.


It is important that you exercise for at least thirty minutes a day for good health. If you are trying to lose weight you must burn enough calories. To lose almost half a kilogram you must burn over three thousand calories above what you do just doing your normal daily activities. To help you stick with your exercise regime, make sure that you do something that you really enjoy. If you find it hard getting to the gym then play a team sport instead or go for a swim. Join a class and do yoga or pilates or take up the latest Zumba craze. You might prefer to take up dancing, which burns plenty of calories, or you could get outdoors and go horse riding, hiking or roller blading. Mix it up and do different activities so it doesn’t feel like exercise.


It is important to stay motivated when trying to lose weight. Keep a diary of what you eat each day and write down what exercise you did and for how long. Give yourself rewards. For example, if you are good all week and don’t eat anything unhealthy then reward yourself at the end of the week and treat yourself to a non-food reward, like buying yourself a small gift to the value of ten or twenty dollars. If you lose a certain amount of weight over a month then give yourself a bigger reward.

Drink Plenty of Water

Not only does drinking plenty of water help flush the toxins from your system, it will also help you lose weight. Water is vital to remaining healthy, but you can also help lose weight by drinking water when you are feeling peckish. Water has no calories and instead of snacking unnecessarily water will help fill you up. Make sure you keep everything clean in your Bosch dishwasher as having a tidy house can help you stay motivated.


It is also important to get enough sleep as this can assist in weight loss. Studies have shown that people who get more sleep are more likely to lose weight more easily than those who suffer from sleep deprivation.

Follow these five steps and you’ll soon have the body you want!
