Losing weight is no longer about weird diets or forcing yourself to do rigorous workouts. The word on the street is that it's all about lifestyle now. Stop counting calories and start changing your life as a whole.

Perhaps you work out at the gym to the point of exhaustion. Still, you can't seem to shed those stubborn pounds, no matter how long or hard you exercise.

One out of four people is using a fad diet, but those diets do not work. While exercise is a necessary part of losing weight and improving overall health, it will not magically burn away unwanted fat. Countless studies have shown that aside from diet and exercise, changing your lifestyle is more effective in terms of trying to lose weight in the long run. A lot of people that have tried doing this can lose 60 or more pounds and are able to keep that weight away as well. Below is information on how these people have achieved their weight loss goals:

Step One - Reasonable Eating There is no mystery involved when it comes to calories. When you eat more calories than you burn off, your weight will increase. When a healthy lifestyle is followed which includes lean and nutritious food option, there is no necessity for calorie counting. Control the sizes of your portions; eat meals that have lots of vegetables and fruits, whole grains and lean proteins.

2. Exercising sensibly. The most popular method of losing weight through lifestyle change includes about an hour of walking per day. This exercise works wonders. No costly gym memberships, no clunky, expensive exercise equipment and no repetitive, boring reps. Exercising at a moderate pace everyday will never fail.

3. Reliable support. If the people you know take care of themselves and will provide you positive support, it will help you lose weight. However, if you are hanging out with people who eat junk food constantly and don't take good care of themselves or don't support your efforts to improve your health, then you are more likely to fail at achieving your goals.

Step Four - Sleeping habit

Insulin production goes to a halt when you donât get sufficient sleep, and insulin is needed by the brain to regulate your appetite. So, if you did not get enough rest, you will not be able to make a sound judgement around food. Allowing your body to produce sufficient insulin by keeping a good sleep pattern, also helps to regulate metabolism, hence you will have more energy and motivation to stick to regular exercise

5. Keep Good Records Journalizing what you do is the best weight loss tool recommended by scientists. Keeping track of how much you eat and exercise makes it easy to track and facilitate your weight loss efforts. Doing this will allow you to see what things work best for you and help you to maintain awareness of your daily behaviors. You may notice certain patterns emerging in your journal, and these can be easily changed once they are identified. While you may be sceptical, it has been noted that weekly record holders double the amount of weight lost compared to those who do not keep a journal. A food journal will hold you personally fully accountable for the amount and type of food you choose to eat.

A transformation of your whole lifestyle will help you lose weight, improve the quality of your life, add years to your lifespan, and help you become more happy and satisfied with your life as a whole. Such efforts will help you lose weight and are worth trying. You know that your current actions aren't working for you, so upend your lifestyle and watch the results you have always wanted come flying your way.
