There are a million items, diets, supplements that will promise you quick results,the best way is the old fashioned way…Diet and Exercise. With holidays rushing by and the New Year just around the corner,  engagements and weight resolutions come with the territory.

Get started Early- You certainly don’t want to put the stress and strain on your body trying to lose weight fast. The sad part about it when you do lose weight quickly you tend on gaining it back…we don’t want that. So give yourself a break and don’t try to lose too much to fast.

Set realistic goals– Don’t say you are going to lose 50 lbs in 3 months. You will be setting yourself up for failure. You can even make mini goals to lead up to your major goal. Speak with your healthcare provider to see what is a realistic weight loss goal for yourself. Make yourself a goal chart and reward yourself when you meet your goals…of course not with a hot fudge sundae. 4103c0e13382e500_woman-at-gym.xxxlarge

Combine cardio and weight lifting- Many people make the mistake of doing one without the other… you can always alternate the days if you like.

Eat Healthy-  Eat colorful. Not only are green leafy veggies important in your diet, but choose colorful fruits and vegetables as well. Cut of the fast food, sodas and sugary drinks.
