Here's the Big Secret to Losing Weight

By Genevieve Cunningham

Sometimes losing weight seems like a hassle. It's just so much work! While we all want to be healthy and confident in our appearance, we're not crazy about the idea of dieting, exercising harder than usual, or laying off some of our favorite foods. But maintaining a healthy weight is crucial for both aesthetic reasons as well as for long-term wellness. If you need to drop a few pounds, there's good news. There's one big secret to weight loss that most people ignore or look over. But if you abide by it, the weight will come off. If you're interested in managing your weight, take a look at this big tip to start using now.

Here's the Secret: It's Calories In vs. Calories Out

Weight loss is basic. To lose weight, you have to burn more calories than you consume. Of course there are other factors for some people -- things such as illnesses, nutritional deficiencies, and other factors. But for most of us, we haven't found the proper ratio of calories consumed and calories burned. If we figure out how many calories we need and how many calories we should burn, we can find an effective diet and workout plan to help us lose weight and make progress.

Other Things You Should Know

Of course, even though the concept of weight loss is simple, the application is difficult. Don't forget that weight loss is a process. It takes time and patience. You're going to have some really successful weeks and some weeks that feel as though nothing is happening. The key is to stick with it. Don't give up! If you stick with the plan, don't beat yourself up when you mess up, and keep moving forward even when it's hard, you'll eventually reach your goal. Keep in mind that it's a long-term process and lifestyle change. It's OK if it takes time -- as long as you're continually moving forward. 

Weight loss is hard. It's not something that happens overnight, and that's really OK. The idea is not to lose weight and look amazing all the time. The idea is to live the healthiest life possible, and hopefully achieve a body we're proud of in the process. Use this big tip to keep yourself moving in the right direction, and you'll be well on your way to a healthy body and life in no time at all.
