Excess weight has been a real problem in the last several decades, and while some manage to lose those excess pounds almost effortlessly, some are doing their best and still can’t find the right trick. That’s why most of us turn to diets to get rid of the belly and as we all know they are not easy at all. The worst thing about diets is that almost everyone gains the weight back after a certain time, but the main question is why?

An answer to this question is pretty simple and it lies at the core of human nature. The main culprit is our own eating habit. Weight simply comes back because we go back to our old ways, if not immediately, then gradually over several weeks. Whatever the case is diets can still help us lose the weight, but only if they are not overly strict.

People don’t seem to realize that if you push yourself to eat undesirable food every day, you’re bound to fail. So what is the healthiest way to lose weight? The healthiest way to lose weight is to create diet plan which can become a part of your lifestyle and everyday life.

Adapting to just a few healthy habits like avoiding white bread, snacks and sweets can help you lose a tremendous amount of weight, of course only if you stick to the rule. The process itself in which you make small acceptable changes is the key to proper weight loss. Besides that, if you include moderate exercise, you’re golden.

If exercise is not your thing, before you dismiss it altogether, let’s see why it’s incredibly important. Nowadays most jobs include sitting at the desk pretty much throughout the day and that’s bad for two reasons. Firstly you’re not active which means that you’re not burning any calories, and at the end, that’s simply unhealthy. The second thing you have to realize is that human body is not meant to be inactive, evolution itself rewards us when we’re active, hence the good feeling after a good workout.

With these two things cleared, it’s obvious that combination of diet and exercise is an ideal solution, and if you want to lose those excess pounds for good, you have to combine the two. There is one more important thing you have to keep in mind. Don’t make it too hard on yourself. The intensity of your new healthy lifestyle should grow gradually, at an acceptable rate, so your body and mind can adapt. After a while, healthy thinking is going to prevail and living healthy is going to become your new habit.
