I watched a documentary featured in the Discovery channel lately regarding women in Mauritania. According to the said film, obese women are the “ideal beauty” because they represent the family’s wealth despite of repeated incidence of drought. Because of such belief, many women (in Mauritania) suffer weight-related problems like diabetes type 2 and cardiovascular diseases.
On a brighter note, women from the rest of the world are aware that obesity could shorten one’s life, thus most women want to lose weight. However, the battle to lose weight is not easy. It would require time, effort, and the right attitude to successfully achieve a healthy weight. This article provides quick weight loss tips for women from all walks of life.
Tip #1 Avoid Stressors
Do you know that stress is one of the major contributing factors why people gain weight? According to a recent study, people who are stressed find comfort in eating. They tend to binge eat because the achievement of finishing a portion of food psychologically represents an “achievement” in life. Moreover, certain foods like chocolates contain chemicals that allow a person to feel happy. This is the reason why most women eat and eat whenever they feel lonely. If you avoid stressors, you do not only manage your weight, but you can also lose weight because you feel more active and alive.
Tip #2 Don’t miss a meal
There are more reported cases of women who were diagnosed with anorexia nervosa than men. This is because when women decide to lose weight, they want to achieve it on the soonest time possible; thus the reason why women starves themselves to death in the hope to lose weight overnight. However, the reality remains that you could never lose weight overnight because it did take you months or years to gain all those pounds. So, never miss a meal because each time you skip a meal, your metabolism slows down and the tendency of binge eating is very possible as soon as you go back to your normal eating habits.
Tip #3 Buy your dream dress
Most women feel motivated when it comes to dresses. So, buy that little black dress you have been eyeing on the mall for quite sometime now. Try to purchase a dress that is one size smaller for you so you’ll be motivated to finish your weight loss program. Being able to wear your dream dress is a great feeling of accomplishment especially if you did it the hard way. If such strategy works for you, continue buying dresses that are one size smaller than your current size and you’ll be surprised at how you’ll lose weight fast.
