How to Lose Weight the Healthy Way


Notice when people start contemplating about losing weight they always want to see fast results? This impatience stems from their awareness that shedding off unwanted and unsightly adipose is a tedious and painstaking process, one that requires one hundred and one percent of their dedication. But dedication isn’t enough to keep you on the right track for long. When you’re dealing with issues such as weight loss dedication is just one of its facets. You also need knowledge and wisdom to steer you in the right direction. Being in the right direction means that the methods you intend to employ should be safe and effective without long term side effects. Since there are hundreds to even thousands of weight loss strategies introduced to man on a daily basis, filtering out the safe ones is of utmost importance. Always keep in mind that even though a certain strategy took effect right away it does not necessarily mean it is safe. Every time a weight loss strategy is being introduced to you always resolve to ask its margin of safety and its efficacy. And don’t just ask anyone, ask your doctor, do your research and read reviews and feedbacks.

The formula to a promising successful weight loss boils down to two things, diet and exercise. While it’s true that you can lose weight through diet alone, you wouldn’t see favorable results as fast if you combined the two. That is why these two key factors are the secrets to effective and safe weight loss. But the quest doesn’t stop there because there are millions of diets available and there are tons of exercise routines you can try out. If you fail to pick out the right ones suitable for you, you can either get sick, malnourished or even injure yourself.

Mind boggling, isn’t it? With everyone pushing you to do this and do that, it’s hard to tell who to follow and what to do. To clear your head allow me to teach you how to lose weight the fast and effective way without tainting your health. We’ll still stick to diet and exercise only this time we’ll delve into the specifics.



There are a plethora of diet regimens ready for you to try but it will only be a waste of your time, energy and sacrifice if you wound up with the wrong one. We want to keep your diet simple to avoid unnecessary confusion and also to help you remember.

  1. Do not even think about skipping meals. This is a definite no-no when it comes to dieting. This strategy will backfire on you at some point.
  2. Eat your veggies. When your mom used to spoon-feed you with vegetables for your nutrition now is the time to thank her for it. At least the taste wouldn’t be so foreign to you now. Vegetables are packed with vitamins and minerals but the best thing about it is that it contains fewer calories. So you can indulge in vegetables all you want and worry less about the calories you’re taking in.
  3. Drink tons and tons of water. If you’re not a water drinker force yourself to be one. Water makes you feel full and helps curb your appetite. Try downing a glass or two before your meals and it will instantly trick your brain that you’re full. In that way you won’t be tempted to finish what’s on your plate.
  4. Limit your consumption of sugars and fats. As you have noticed, I used the word limit instead of avoid simply because our bodies also need sugars and fats but only in limited proportions. If you want to abstain from it absolutely that is up to you.
  5. Make a list of all the foods you wish to buy and strictly follow that list without any add-ons. Most people view grocery shopping as therapeutic but it wouldn’t be for long if you fill your carts with cakes, processed canned goods and unhealthy calorie-laden snacks. Making a list at home is important to avoid temptation. Also, don’t go grocery shopping when you’re hungry as this can ruin the list you just made.



Natural weight loss through exercising is what all doctors would recommend for everyone (except for those who have conditions that contraindicate excessive movements). The most effective form of exercise to lose weight is cardio. You need to apportion thirty minutes of your time in a day to jog, brisk walk, swim, and dance or engage in sport activities to see results. Exercising is very important in order for you to burn the calories you consumed all throughout the day. The surefire way to keep the calories out is to undergo extensive cardio training. You can either do cardio at home or at the gym. For your exercise to take effect you need to start off with thirty minutes the least and then gradually increase the duration and the frequency as well as the intensity of your activity overtime.

Diet and exercise go hand in hand and they work intimately together to create a healthy, youthful and fit new you. If you want to expedite the weight loss process by taking supplements, you can do just as long as you make sure that it is safe to take. In my opinion, taking Tongkat Ali is especially beneficial for those who want to get rid of their excess adipose. Tongkat Ali is a trusted product popular all over the world because of its health benefits.
