Weight Loss Plan
Following a weight loss plan adds some structure to your ultimate aim of losing weight. A weight loss plan could focus purely on diet or could incorporate other elements like exercise, rest and relaxation.
If concentrating on diet keep a food diary so that you know what you currently eat. You can choose to restrict your calorie intake (by about 10-15%) or choose from one of the many existing popular weight loss plans such as Weight Watchers, Slim fast, Rosemary Conely. Alternatively there are diets such as The Atkins, The Zone, The South Beach or Hay Diet all of which can be built in to a weight loss plan. All of these options are summarised in the Diet section of the site. It is important to choose a diet or weight loss plan that fits in to your lifestyle and that you fully understand and are happy with.
Adding exercise and accounting for your lifestyle in your weight loss program will be a tremendous benefit. Try to include 3 aerobic exercise sessions each week and include some gentle resistance exercise which will help build muscle. Remember the more muscle you have the more effective you are at burning fat. Use the Exercise section to choose an exercise that suits you and your lifestyle constraints. The Producing a Fitness Plan section will also help you draw up goals an milestones for your Weight Loss Plan.
