Weight loss can seem elusive and difficult to master, especially with so many weight loss programs clouding our judgment with their constant advertisements. The reality is that weight loss is as simple as exercising more and eating the right amount of nutritious food. By developing healthy eating habits and getting on a regular exercise routine, you can meet your weight loss goals and maintain your goal weight. Here are some helpful tips to help you along the way:

• Avoid fat burning supplements. These are generally just stimulants. The pounds you lose from taking these stimulants will return once you stop taking them.

• Strength training is key to long-term weight loss. By building lean muscle mass you will begin to burn more calories. It also helps to regulate the way your body perceives hunger, helping you to avoid those pesky cravings.

• Identify when you are truly hungry. Many people eat because they are sad, happy, stressed, anxious, or for any other number of emotions. When you crave food, stop and ask yourself if you are truly hungry or simply responding inappropriately to an emotion.

• Eat fresh food. Prepared, packaged, and processed foods contain chemicals, sodium, and other unwanted preservatives that can detrimentally affect you over the long term. Foods to avoid include artificial sweeteners or foods with synthetic fat substitutes.
