Easy Weight Loss Tips

Easy weight loss tips must sound like an almost unbelievable idea, but in reality its quite the opposite. Weight loss can be easy if you are in the right frame of mind to make it so. The last post here "Slimming with Water", looked at how drinking plenty of water throughout the day is one of the best slimming agents there is. So here, I'm going to take that idea further by looking at it as one of the easy weight loss tips that there are, as well as some others.

So back to water, briefly. Why is water such a good strategy when there are a plethora of pills and potions that you can get at the pharmacist or nutritionist store?

Well for starters, its free!

Losing weight doesn't get any cheaper than that! Add to that it is freely and easily available wherever you go, which means there's no excuses for not drinking plenty of it. On top of that, it is a big part of our body's make up, so complements our natural state of being. So don't turn your nose up at something that is free, readily available and works!

Next, an easy and free resource that everyone who wants to lose weight should make the best use of is their minds. Again, these are free, readily available and the bets part is they can be trained to work almost automatically. Think I'm kidding?

Your mind is what controls your body, so of course it is the best weapon you can possibly have when it comes to health, fitness and weight loss. You can train your mind by telling it what it should do. That's right! One way is by repetitive or rote mental teaching that is as easy as repeating a positive phrase, or affirmation over and over in your mind every day, like:

"I am healthy and my body is achieving its perfect weight"


"Every day I am getting healthier, slimmer and feel better"

Make some up of your own that suit the way you talk to yourself in your own head. Just make them positive affirmations and avoid the negative like the plague. Things like "I'm not fat any more"or "I wish I wasn't so overweight" are negative and will have the wrong effect. Make the affirmation in the present tense, make them what you want and NOT what you don't want, make them believable to you and make them fun!

These can be repeated whenever you have a few free minutes all throughout the day, like if you're stuck waiting in a queue. Don't get frustrated at having to wait, turn it into a positive moment and use it to say your affirmations to yourself!

So when it comes to discovering some of the best weight loss tips, it pays to think outside the box occasionally. Then you'll discover that every cloud really does have a silver lining when you know how!

Ok, that's all for today. See you again next time!
