Simple Weight Loss Plan

Summary: Crash diet plans are a lot of clatter therefore it is not suggested as the perfect diet plan by many health and diet experts. It might be the ‘easy way out’ but losing 6 or 9 kg per week makes the doctors lose their minds are it is a diet suicide. Weight loss can be achieved through several other ways.

Simple Weight Loss Plan

An everyday plan for diet is much better than a crash diet. People usually make plans for long term dieting, but give up after three days. Therefore, they are not aware of the great benefits of a proper and healthy weight loss plan.
Consumption of adequate amount of water, no processed food and lots of exercise is the best way to lose weight without causing much damage to the body. If you follow the three main important constituents of a weight loss plan than the results will not only be healthy, but you will stay in shape to own a perfect body.

Consumption of adequate amount of water

People underestimate the benefits of drinking water. Most of the people are simply unaware of the great health gains related to drinking an adequate amount of water. It helps lose weight easily, providing your body the nourishment and hydration it needs. To lose weight in an effective way, drink a good amount of water in the morning before eating anything.
It is always necessary to keep the body hydrated with fluids. You would be amazed to know that often our bodies feel hungry, it is not the actual hunger, but our body is hungry for water due to dehydration. Minimize the number of your everyday meals to only 3 and keep snacks strictly out of limits. The best thing to do when you feel hungry is to drink water. If the craving for food is still there, then eat some juicy fruits.
Dieting and consumption of fizzy drinks at the same time is not a good combination, even if the fizzy drink has a diet label on it. You have to avoid sugar that is present in a huge quantity in these fizzy drinks. Obviously, you can’t drink water to satisfy your cravings all the time, so if you crave for flavors, try lemonade with no sugar added to please your desires. You can also give a try to mint lemon juice.

No processed food

You need to avoid carbohydrates as much you can. The processed food such as spaghetti, bread and pasta are the sources of carbohydrates, therefore they must be off your limits. Perform a healthy experiment on your body. Don’t take any kind of food that contains carbohydrates for a week. You can eat nuts, vegetables and fruits to let you function without carbohydrates. By the end of the week there will be a drastic change in your body. The progress will be far better than a crash diet.


Even if you make a daily plan for eating, a successful weight loss plan will never be completed without exercise. Exercising daily will help you lose weight effectively. The best exercise for losing weight is dancing and jogging to give it a start. Give time to exercising five times a week for about 15 to 30 minutes. It will help you tone your body towards a healthy weight loss. If you don’t want to jog, take a walk or do both alternatively. With these exercises your main focus will be on the cardio and your body will take a much better shape as the fat gets burned down.
