Lose Belly Fat! Breakthrough Plans to lose the Old You!

By on January 30, 2013

Are you a comfort eater or a big personality in every party? Maybe you consider yourself to be a yo-yo dieter, or have the attention span of a goldfish that can’t keep to a weight loss or diet plan? As much as we would love to think that 2013 is going to be different – this is going to be the year that we get down to our goal weight and wear that amazing bikini you’ve been hiding for a couple of years, we aren’t going to get there without a little help from the professionals.


In order to lose weight and get the perfect body, you need to change the old you. By this we mean that you need to let go of your old eating and dieting habits. The changes could be smaller than you first thought…

The old you would sit in front of the TV as she ate her dinner, cramming food into her mouth in between laughing at that comedy show that you always love to watch.

The new you will set the table, and eat like a sophisticated adult.

Why? Number one, you have a table and you might as well use it. Number two, because you will lose weight by eating at the table rather than in front of the TV. In studies it has been shown that you will consume around three hundred more calories by eating while watching a TV show. Maybe it’s time to get that old table cloth out after all….


The old you will join up to the gym and go for a whole three weeks before you give up and leave that seven hundred dollar gym membership to go to waste. We all have money to waste like that, right?

The new you will try her hand at a spot of roller blading. Maybe she will have a bash at swimming. Basically, the new you will go and head out to try a bunch of different weight loss methods to finally find one that she enjoys.

Why? Be realistic about this – you are not going to use that gym membership because you hate going to the gym. If you like swimming, go swimming rather than going to the gym. You are probably going to get bored of your newfound hobby in a while so it’s always good to have a back up. Let’s say you had planned to go to the gym for an hour a day, four days a week for now. You go for one week and then you give up. Go swimming a couple of times per week and hit the local basketball courts with your girlfriends. Any exercise will do as long as you are getting the blood pumping – netball, hockey, playing a Frisbee with the dog and kids in the local park.


The thing about weight loss is that you need to find the things that you are doing wrong and find a decent fix for them. So for example, if you have a habit of having a calorie filled hot chocolate before bed and don’t particularly want to break out of that habit, just mix it up and change to green tea or low calorie hot chocolate. There are plenty of quick fixes – it’s just a matter of finding the ones that work for you!
