What is actually restricting people to lose weight when using healthy lifestyle tips? Majority of restrictions might come into mind, but the main one is misunderstanding of the healthy concept & mismanagement of it.

1. Draw a clear picture.

First you need to work mentally to understand and realize your present situation, and find out what you truly want. People are all-different and want some specific different things, cause different things make them satisfied. If we seek things that are not truly desired for us, how we can achieve anything? So often we tend to block our wishes focusing on society norms, sometimes it might be so deep inside ourselves and so blocked that we might not even realize it fully. Take few minutes daily to think about your present situation, what you like and dislike about yourself and write it down. Only after that, imagine your end picture & even your feelings. Get deep into it. If you can see it and feel it fully-thats your final goal. You need to be clear with your goals and create a visible and clear image. Evaluate each aspect and write it all down to have it. After defining your ideal image-look at it daily to remind yourself what you want.
2. Start with mindset, not food & fitness.
What you eat and exercising is very important, thats what majority of professionals speak about and arguing about it would be very silly. However, there is not a lot of discussion about a third ingredient called mindset. Food & fitness is essential, but do not forget to start shifting your mindset first. This is the clicking part how it all starts. You gained weight because your mindset is in different form, only when you start understanding and shifting it something will start changing. How you can do it? There is an incredible amount of material: presentations, books & articles how to be more positive and shift your mind.
It is very related with a before mentioned “Start with mindset, not food & fitness” tip, as you also need to research to change your mindset. However, this also includes researching information about healthy lifestyle. We cannot rely on one peace of information, because one peace of information cannot discuss all aspects. Thats why it is essential to research daily and weekly, find new information and collect it. You cannot loose weight without having a good plan system and you cannot have this system without having a lot of information that you can use.
4. It is a way of life, not a period change.
You cannot do it only for a period of time, such as few months or a year. After all you do not want to loose weight for few months only? Your body will become rubbish again if you stop healthy lifestyle after you achieved your goals and start eating unhealthy food again. Healthy lifestyle is about both releasing and maintaining weight. You need to understand it fully & prepare for it. Without a doubt, create an after plan too.
5. Go slowly.
You did not gain kilograms in few days or even a month, it started accumulating slowly & grew up. So why so many people believe they can loose weight in a month? You cannot loose weight in a month, what you loose with ridiculous diets is muscle fat, which will definitely rebuild and the result of slow metabolism will rebuild fat back too, in many cases even more. That is the reason why healthy lifestyle is a way to go with weight loss. Change your eating habits slowly, by making short weekly goals. Do not stress your organism with radical changes, which usually end up with bad results, because fast radical changes are not healthy by any means!
