Here are six simple tips that will help you to get thin in just 6 weeks. But remember that you have to actually do this stuff. Reading does not get you thin; doing does. So remember to just do it; and if you will simply just do these things, in six weeks time, you will be thinner and you will also be wondering how and why a few simple tips was all it took.
Just follow through and take action for the next six weeks. The tips are all very simple, they are all very doable and you may be inclined to dismiss them for one reason or another, but don’t let your mind get in the way. Resolve that for the next six weeks you will just follow this little program and then you can make your judgement at the end.
So that’s the deal: is it fair? I hope you think it is a fair deal because I want you to succeed and to do that, you need to mentally buy in to doing this stuff for the entire six week period.
One last thing before we start: of course, your doctor’s advice should come first. If you have a medical condition, for example, there may be special dietary requirements that you will need to take into account and such considerations are beyond the scope of this article.
Ok, here we go. Here are my 6 top tips for losing that excess weight.
Stop Drinking Fizzy Drinks
This tip is going to shock you, but you need to really take this on board: you need to stop drinking fizzy drinks – even the so called ‘diet’ drinks. In some cases, this action alone, over the course of time, will be enough to get those excess pounds off you. Of course, the reason you drink diet drinks is because they contain hardly any calories – right? But the problem is that they have been shown to increase the craving for other sugary foods, so make a decision to stop drinking that stuff and just do it.
The E Word
Yes, you knew it was going to be on this list didn’t you? So let’s get it out there right away: decide what kind of exercise suits you best and then commit to doing it every day or, at very least, three times per week. We are not training to be athletes, but we also do not want to be neglecting our need to stay fit and healthy. So just decide what aerobic exercise suits you best; it could be running, walking, riding a bike, playing a sport, swimming, jogging, dancing or a multitude of other activities. Then make sure you follow through with action: again, again just do it – you know it makes sense.
Your Five a Day
Make sure you eat five pieces or portions of fruit and vegetables every day. This is easier than you might think if you just plan a little. Start having some fruit and yoghurt for breakfast for example; not every day, but perhaps once or twice per week. When you have lunch, try to select the vegetarian option. When you have dinner, make a deal with yourself to eat the vegetables first. During the day, eat a piece of fruit, perhaps an apple or a banana or an orange. That’s not complicated is it? So remember to do it.
Drink More Water
Fat people drink coffee, fizzy and alcoholic drinks. We have already got a prohibition on fizzy drinks agreed for the entire six weeks, so I am not going to ask you to give up drinking coffee and alcohol during that time, but I am going to ask you to drink more water. I know you don’t like the stuff and I know you think that you are getting enough fluid via other means, but again just do it. Drink six glasses of water per day for the entire six weeks. It’s not as difficult as you might think.
Program Your Mind for Success
There are various ways you can do this. You can use hypnosis, affirmations, subliminals and positive self-talk. You could subscribe to our free affirmations course for example. It doesn’t matter which method you choose, but start telling yourself that you can do it; start seeing yourself as succeeding rather than failing; and start thinking about yourself in a positive light. Never say anything negative about yourself and make a conscious effort to mentally reject anything negative that other people may say about you. Make sure you keep this up for the entire six weeks.
Stop Weighing Yourself
Are you weighing yourself every day or every week? Well, I have to tell you that, for the entire six week period, you must not weight yourself at all. Sounds silly – right? After all, what harm can weighing yourself do? OK, listen up: when you don’t see the evidence after you have put in some steady effort, it will be powerfully demotivating and I don’t want your resolve to be affected in this way. Weight loss is never a straight line downward trend; it is always up and down, even in the course of a day. So again, trust me. Just do not weight yourself for the entire six weeks. Just don’t do it – how’s that for a change?
So, there it is! I bet you have never seen a weight loss program like this one before but do you know something? There is definitely something wrong with your average diet program – they just don’t work in the long run. So try this. Print out this post and keep it somewhere handy so that you can remind yourself of what you are going to do.
Make a little plan for when you are going to exercise and what you are going to do – and remember that it needn’t be the same exercise every day. Whatever method you choose for training your mind, make sure you use it for the entire six weeks. Ensure you resist the temptation to weigh yourself until the six weeks has passed. Stop drinking fizzy drinks. Ensure you drink 6 glasses of water per day and eat five portions of fruit and vegetables each day – deal?
OK, now go and lose that weight.
