When it comes to weight loss, I must say I’m one among the few individuals who manage to lose weight and keep it off. But it’s not a matter of luck, I take some simple actions to make that happen. Want to know how I do it? Here are some of my health and fitness rules which are really simple.
These are my personal rules that you don’t have to follow. However if you do, you’re sure to benefit in one way or another.
Let me start with my eating rules.
Eating should be enjoyable. If there are too many rules to follow, counting calories for every meal, then there will be no fun at all! Make it simple and you’ll enjoy the beauty of simplicity. Here are my simple eating rules.
1. Eat Less
When I eat less, I feel better. Foods taste better, I feel happier and less worried. You may already know that eating less can help reduce risks of cancers and diseases.
2. Eat Fresh and Natural
I drink orange juice from a real fresh orange. No bottled or canned orange juice. I’m sure you see what I mean. I don’t take supplements. That’s right. Reading through my blog, you won’t see me recommending any supplements. I do window shopping at Fancl House and GNC…but never buy anything.
If you eat a variety of real fresh good foods, your need for supplements is close to none.
3. Eat Less in an Enjoyable Way
I successfully lose weight and stay fit by eating less. More importantly, that’s the way I enjoy. I suggest your finding a sustainable and “enjoyable” way of eating less. That way you will stick with it because you enjoy it.

4. Learn to Cook
The more you cook for yourself, the healthier you eat. Do learn to cook and teach your kids to cook as well. No time? Do you have time to date your boy friend or girl friend? Why not cook together? Share the fun of cooking with people you love and eat healthier.
5. Make My Own Dressing
Eating salad is healthy, isn’t it? But don’t forget the dressing which makes you fat. I start making my own dressing after reading this article - The Salad Dressing To NEVER Eat. It’s quick and easy, however delicious and healthy, and I’m never tired of it.
Finally I’d to remind you of the 5 simple cooking methods that I mentioned in my earlier post: grilling, poaching, steaming, boiling and raw. Read the full article: Simple Life and Weight Loss
