The Perfect Combination for Weight Loss

Many of us think that if we just eat right we’ll lose weight.

Many of think that if we just exercise we’ll lose weight.

There is some truth to all that.  If you eat pizza and cheeseburgers everyday then start eating salads, you’ll see a change in your weight.  If you’ve never exercised a day in your life and you start a quality workout program, you’ll start to see some weight loss.

Then you reach a plateau point, maybe you even start to put weight back on.  What’s going on??

The hard truth about weight loss is that it isn’t easy, it takes a lot of work…hard work.  As with anything if it was easy everyone would do it.  We wouldn’t have an obesity epidemic on our hands if it were easy.

  • Nutrition
  • Exercise
  • Rest

Instead of focusing on just one component listed above, incorporate all three of them into a daily routine, make a lifestyle change, and then stick to it.

Choosing the best foods to fuel your body is a crucial part of nutrition, but portion sizes are equally important.  Here’s one site that has some portion size recommendations.
