For years, the word ‘weight loss’ is synonymous with the feminine nature. From the grandmother, mother, the big sister and you, many weight loss tips have become a trademark for women worldwide.

But the case of weight loss is so innocent. There are some easy to follow weight loss tips for women that can help you lose weight in a fast, persistent and healthy way.

If you have tried everything and have not accomplished the desired result? First calm down! Nothing is more powerful than your desire and nothing can stand as an obstacle to your weight loss efforts.

1. You follow a weight loss diet without the supervision and advice of a responsible doctor or nutritionist.

Do not enter any weight loss diet without first taking the advice of a specialist. Every body is unique and has its own peculiarities and characteristics. This means that the diet that helped your best friend to lose weight fast may not have the same effect on you. When you choose a weight loss program, consider your weight, the state of your health, age and the type of work you do. Also have in mind that the exercises you will follow and the diet that will help you lose weight is unique to you.

2. You eat little or the wrong type of food

Forcing the body into starvation and the consumption of only one type of food (e.g. juice only) can be very dangerous for your health, since the lack of certain trace elements and vitamins leaves your body uncovered in a multitude of diseases. The same can be dangerous for example if you are a complete vegetarian. If you choose to become a vegetarian make sure that your body receives the necessary iron. Remember that the forced famine, may irreparably damage your health and to bring you near to nervous anorexia.

3. You cannot lose weight by diet alone

If you think you will lose weight through a diet only, this is a big mistake. You may lose some weight and you will get it back as soon as you stop the diet.  Achieving a healthy body can be done by changing the sedentary lifestyle and also with a combination of healthy diet and exercise. Sports, find a hobby and generally not thinking only how to consume fewer calories, but how to burn more calories.

4. You combine weight loss efforts with a long lasting stress

Avoid stress. There are many women that when they are in a crisis of stress they are starting to eat what they find in front of them. Before starting any diet, analyse the reasons that make you follow a weight loss solution, set a goal and combined the diet with forms of exercise that will help you fight the stress: for example: yoga, pilates.

5. Do not try to lose a lot of weight quickly

Do not try to lose more weight as you can in the least time. They only thing that you can accomplish is to substantially dry the skin after you lose all that liquids from your body. The loss of more than 3 pounds a month is considered dangerous for your health.

6. Do not follow more than one weight loss diets

Do not combine several different weight loss diets at the same time because one method may come in contrast to another. Then, if you follow a diet and stop to start another, it is very difficult to see results or to prevent them to occur. It is very important to follow a diet and sports program that meets your own individual needs and of course after the guidance of a specialist.

7. Do not eat “mechanical”

One of the major reasons that men are thinner than women is because they are NOT going to the supermarket and because they do not cook. The «forced engagement» of women in these processes entails more calorie consumption during food preparation. In a conducted research, it was discovered that the calories that women recruit during cooking, touch the 300!

Of course, we do not suggest that the solution is not to cook? Of course not! But certainly you can stop to eat carelessly, waiting for …the main meal. An easy way to avoid this is for as long as you are in the kitchen to chew a gum. This will prevent you from filling your mouth with other small delicacies.

8: Control your desires for sweets

If you think about it in most case you have a need for dessert, and usually the desert is ‘guilty’ for the many calories. To limit this habit and protect yourself, eat at every meal more protein.

9: Monitor your progress

Because the clothes are now more resilient and waistbands tend to disappear it is more difficult to realize when your waist is growing. You only realise it when the stretch fabric starts to ‘protest.’ What you must do therefore is to have denim or some other non-elastic cloth as a measure. Once a month wear it and see the results.

10: Read the food labels

Any product that is labelled as ‘light’ or ‘diet’ does not mean that it is ideal for consumption and much more does not mean that it can help you lose weight. So you need to be careful and read the food labels carefully and note the percentage of fat and calories it contains.

11: Do not eat everything you might want

It is proven that women prefer much more fatty foods than fruits, vegetables and fiber. For this reason then try to avoid any extra burden to the state: rich sauces, and fried food.

12: Talk about your weight loss efforts with your partner

Ask your partner, friend, family or your trainer to help you and advice you about your weight loss efforts. Sometimes the impression that we have for ourselves is not consistent with reality. Ask someone you trust to tell you where you need to improve and seek proper help.

This article presented 12 weight loss tips for women. For sure weight loss is not easy especially for women. Good results can be achieved though with persistent effort, patience, a good weight loss diet and physical exercise.
