Achieved Your Target Weightloss With Medifast? Is That It?
The Medifast Program has let you reach your target weight and you are wondering what needs to be done to keep the weight off? Firstly, enjoy the moment; shout yourself to the movies or take a trip somewhere as a reward; then read this article for some handy tips and frequently asked questions.The first question that gets asked is if a dieter should stop buying the shakes and substitutes they are on now now and make a clean break from the Medifast program? I simply tell them that whatever they do, do not suddenly stop taking the shakes and supplements. You need to slowly transition your body from this diet to normal healthy eating.Next they ask if I could explain what the transition phase is and what it means to successful weight loss? The transition phase is the process of slowly working your body off the shakes and supplements and getting used to eating regular food.A very common question I get asked and one that effects many people is what do you look for when you are buying food now? Well, you don't want to start eating rubbish. Avoid food that is high in fat, sugar, and energy. Use your bad experience as a positive and avoid all the nasties that you used to crave. If you replace your Medifast shakes and supplements with real substitutes you will be well on track. Fruit and veggies is a good place to start.Many people want to know if I have other tips they can do to make the whole process a lot less painful? The best advice I can give is that you should look at doing some exercise. Exercise is the best way to remain fit and healthy and to make sure you don't put the excess weight back on.The best place to start is closer and easier than what you might think. Walking is a great low impact exercise that perfectly suits people coming off an extreme diet. You will find it is very enjoyable if you go walking with a friend or your dog each day or night at regular times.When you mention exercise many as about whether a weights routine is good for weight loss? Not everyone knows but muscle is a great fat burner with the way it boosts metabolism and a weights routine is the best way to increase your muscle mass. There is a huge range of exercises to choose from if you don't have the equipment too. Just have a search for dynamic tension.Hopefully these have answered some of your questions regarding what to do after you have succeeded with the Medifast program. If you still have questions then contact your local Medifast specialist or have a talk to your GP. They will have a lot of information to share regarding diets.
