Losing weight. 5 essential principles.

By Jeffrey Colin Edwards

There are numerous diets to choose from, and the odds are that you may have already tried a few of them, but can't seem to achieve that goal in mind. I believe there are 5 basic principles to losing weight. The first thing we should look at is eating. It's the cause of the problem, but it's an enjoyable thing to do and that is what gets us most into trouble. So why not enjoy a diet! So the first tip.

There are so many diets around that there is bound to be one that you can enjoy. What's the point in following a diet that is hell. Unless you are a masochist.

Enjoy your food. By that, I mean take notice of all the varying tastes and textures. Let it spend a little time in your mouth instead of using it as a bypass. You'll be surprised to find tastes you like and some you don't.

If your diet works then remember that with most diets, the biggest weight loss is in the first week. It's a trickle after that. It's the same for everyone. If it works and you enjoy it then don't try to improve it. You may end up back where you started.

There are different diets to suit different people. Hopefully you will try several. If you follow a plan and you do not lose weight from it then do not consider yourself a failure. Just consider that you have not failed. You have just succeeded in proving that the plan you followed was not the right one for you. Then move on to the next one.

This is the most important point of all. You must be losing weight for yourself. Not for relatives or for the sake of friends. You must be doing it for you, and you only. After all, it is your body.

To get a start on dieting, why not check out some of the tips and techniques on my website. Take a look in the 'Diets' and 'Weight Loss' categories at
