Phase 1: The Rev-Up
In the first four weeks of the Best Life Diet, focus on moving more and changing your eating patterns. Step on the scale to get your starting weight. Then, put it away! Next, get moving! This is what revs up your metabolism and burns calories. You will determine where you are on the activity scale. If you are already exercising regularly, boost it one level. Zero activity level, go up two levels and start formal workouts right after checking with your physician.
Its important before starting the long process of weight loss to consider the time it took to put the weight on initially. It is important that you consider safety factors when dieting. Starting a diet is not only not practical, it is often unsafe and unhealthy. There are many things you can do to start losing weight.
This might seem a little far fetched, but bear with me a minute. Reduce as much stress as possible by meditating, resting, reading, taking time for yourself, or whatever works to help reduce your sensation of stress. Our bodies are designed to slow down the metabolism function when we are stressed because the types of things that typically cause stress are times when food is scarce.
