WEIGHT LOSS TIP: One of the main reasons people fail when attempting to lose weight long term is because they do not develop new habits to replace their old bad habits that caused them to become overweight in the first place.
Forcing yourself to eat healthy and exercise more will work for a while but the only way to ensure long term success is to develop new healthy habits that will help keep you from regaining all the weight you lost when you stop forcing yourself. Learn to be more active all the time and engage in physical activities that you enjoy and working out will become something you look forward to doing instead of a chore you wish you could avoid.
For some people being a member of a gym provides the same kind of socialization as going to a bar so they look forward to working out as much for hanging out with their friends as for the healthy effects. In terms of diet not all food that is healthy for you tastes bad and is a sacrifice to eat. Fish is a perfect example of a meal you can eat that is not only low in calories and high in protein but is tasty and when prepared properly can be an exquisite meal that will please even the pickiest eater.
Fish is also a meal that can be prepared in a variety of ways giving you many choices. The next time you decide to grill out try cooking some swordfish steaks instead of high fat hot dogs and you will most likely become positively addicted to this healthy substitute for the usual high fat grilled food. Change your lifestyle to one that promotes weight loss instead of hindering it and you will find that it not only makes losing weight much easier but will also give you much greater long term success.
