You can tell your daughter the right way to live until you are red in the face – reality is – your actions have the biggest impact on what she is learning.
It’s very rare for a Dr to advise you to “lose weight” and expect you to do it through exercise alone.
If you do NOT know what and how to eat for weight loss using the Nigerian Diet, then I can recommend our 101 Flat Belly and Fat Loss Nigerian Cooking Recipes to you here. Turn what it is you are working hard to achieve into a poster filled with visual images and empowering quotes that you hang somewhere that you can look at it several times a day.
Another thing you can do to get your motivation juices flowing is to not only write down the consequences but also write down the benefits you get from losing that extra weight. I also want to point out that it’s also an excuse when you find yourself saying…“I don’t know what to do to lose weight”. If eating too many processed carbohydrate foods and drinks, not enough veggies and just doing cardio or not exercising – THOSE are dwarfing your ability to get results – then a first step in the right direction is to cut down the processed carbs, increase your veggies intake and choose a workout plan like the Total Fat Loss Plan here that helps increase your body’s natural fat-burning metabolism to burn off the fat THREE times faster than it is now.
Finally, I want you to realize that Motivation is NOT something that “just happens” to you…rather it is a CHOICE you make Every Day – as the motivational poster states above.
If I’m having one of those days when I don’t feel motivated, here is what I do to get myself motivated to workout. The very cool thing about this is – once I get going, I feel better and I remember why I enjoy my workouts so much – and say Why NOT complete your full workout?
Before we get to the list of foods in the Nigerian Diet that help burn fat, or reduce fat, it’s important to get a basic understanding of how “fat” gets stored in the first place and how your body can be made to lose it.
Today’s article is a rather unusual tip for fat loss but it WORKS big time using the Nigerian diet. It’s becoming rare to see someone without a little pouch of belly fat in Nigeria these days .
The festive season is a time of relaxation and feasting all over the world and in Nigeria as they say “We don’t take last”.
Planning creatively for the festivities can assist you to enjoy the feasting, without the fattening.
You attend parties and office gatherings to share a few festive moments with family, friends, colleagues and lots and lots of food.
So how are you supposed to stick to a diet when faced with endless rounds of parties, tables groaning with irresistible delicacies, limitless drinks for free and a general feeling of ‘Come on, it’s Christmas time, lets enjoy? These foods are the white flour products (bread, samosa, fish fingers, spring rolls etc), white rice, and white potatoes. Holidays are already a time most people get fatter – these foods add insult to injury. Yeah, I know they taste great, but Research reveal that nearly a year later 85% of the participants still had not lost that extra weight gained during the holidays. The truth is whether it’s the festive season or not, you should be hydrating your body throughout the day. At a holiday cocktail party or buffet, go straight to the fruit and vegetable section first.
Over indulgence loosens inhibitions and increases the risk of dietary indiscretion (and a number of other health risks). To add insult to injury, too much alcohol in the evening triggers excessive morning hunger and cravings for starchy junk foods for many people. Drink a full glass of water between each alcoholic beverage at parties, and always make sure there is some food in your stomach before you have a drink. In 250 words or less, I want you to tell me exactly why this program is the perfect program for you at this point in your life. Tell me WHY you NEED access to this information.

Recent CommentsJane on One “magical” Exercise to Double your Fat LossRosemary on Can eating Ofada rice help you lose weight? I would love to help but I am not too sure what you want me to tell you….if you could be a little more specific? I use to be able to lose weight with just running and skipping meals but for the past three years that just doesn’t work. Once again, if what I have said is not what you are ready to face or hear, then this is not the right place for you.
Do you have any long term goals like losing 40 Kg in a year and short term goals like losing 10kg in 2 months? Keeping your goals IN SIGHT at ALL TIMES makes a Big Difference to your focus and motivation. So make a list of all the positive benefits of choosing healthy foods, eating breakfast and choosing to exercise. I just run through my SMSes to the Weigh Loss tips & Belly fat Loss tips I receive on my phone and I tell myself that ALL I have to do is one set of exercises for 7 minutes and stop – then I can go about whatever it is I need to be doing. There are days that yes I may have one too many fat-STORING foods instead of my supportive fat-BURNING foods – however, I do not feel my best after this and look forward to getting back on track.
If you overeat or ate the wrong food, do NOT waste too much emotional energy to painfully relive your past behaviors.
Now is the best time to re-evaluate your bellyfat loss and weight loss goals you have set for this year. It’s easy to enjoy but it can also be easy to overindulge and begin the New Year with extra unwanted weight. But when the holiday season is finally over, the bathroom scale reveals that you’ve gained some weight again, much to your chagrin.
So that means that even if you only gain 2 kg during the holiday and if you consistently do that year after year you’ll be 10 kg heavier in just five years! Another study also found that overweight and obese participants gained the most weight during the holiday study, compared to others. Always consume three meals a day with between meal snacks as necessary to keep your hunger at bay.
If you enjoyed this article, feel free to share it with your friends and loved ones to help this season. I have been told to cut on carbohydrate foods, but being a Nigerian that is our staple food and so I have always eaten carbs. To hate eating vegetables, to eat all manner of unhealthy, fat-storing foods and mostly carbs? Look at diabetes for example – it is one of those diseases that can be caused by years of BAD eating. I do however I appreciate taking a big step forward and asking…if anything maybe it will save another mom out there.
Other than the big steps I listed in steps 1 and 2, you can also create a Vision Board of your Goals.
Try visualizing what it feels like after your workout – the burst of energy, the feel of a tighter, stronger body – is a great motivational strategy.
We all tend to drink alcohol, sodas or drinks with excessive sugar and unnecessary calories, making this a fatal diet trap. Fill two thirds of your plate with fruits, veggies and beans before serving the rest of your meal. Withholding food for several hours or more leads to low blood sugar (excessive hunger), slows down your metabolism and primes your pancreas to release extra fat-storing insulin when you finally eat. Imagine, 1g of protein contains just 4 calories, 1g of carbohydrate contains 4 calories again but alcohol contains a whole 7 calories.
Take a look at the list you made above again, look at your weight and how it is affecting you – is this also what you want her go through? Yes moving your body is important to staying healthy – however the bulk of your results – both weight loss and health related will be achieved by getting honest about your eating habits. At the very least you know what you have been doing is NOT working – and this is a HUGE start to doing it Differently. As a consequence, we can reduce our junk food intake and drink less sweetened beverages during the festive season. To achieve your holiday weight loss goals, eat a big tossed salad or a couple of servings of a veggie side dish before the rest of the meal.
Let’s not even go to fat in which most of our festive foods are prepared with lavishly, it contains 9 calories for 1g of fat.
The fact is “There are several great weight loss programs and they WORK if you stick to it LONG enough”. Am not talking of those weight loss scams that say, “try this pill, drink this, swallow this, do not exercise, eat whatever you like everyday and still lose 20kg in 7 days” – Those are weight loss SCAMS.
