You chase off after them and, in a burst of energy and to their astonishment, not only catch them but pass them. But, of course, as you near the top you slow down and let them win. Everyone laughs and high-fives and together take in the marvelous view of the Piazza di Spagna at the top. You get to mark that one off of the bucket list but more importantly you also get a special moment with your family that you can cherish forever.

There are many keys to effective weight loss. A healthy diet and exercise are keys, but there are also specific weight loss foods that can trigger the body’s metabolism to boost weight loss for a more effective loss strategy.Your body is accustomed to a certain amount of food each day and regulates your metabolism accordingly. If you begin a diet that allows for less food then you are used to your body may adopt by slowing your metabolism. This can leave you feeling sluggish throughout the day while also reducing the amount of calories you burn. The result is that the diet plan that originally helped you lose weight no longer contributes to weight loss.
Daily exercise has been shown to increase metabolism. If done regularly this effect can promote a general increase in metabolic rate, even on days with no exercise. In this manner exercise may counteract the body’s reaction to slow metabolism in response to a diet plan.

In the October, 2010 online edition of the Journal of the American Medical Association, found that a progressive walking for exercise program and an appropriate diet can lead to healthful weight loss that is sustainable.

Almost 70% of Americans are roughly 30 or more pounds overweight. It is well known that this extra weight contributes to the development of many serious health conditions including type 2 diabetes, heart disease and some forms of cancer.

The obvious questions then become…”What kind of diet?” and �UeWhat kind of exercise program?”

While the diet used in the study was a reduced calorie diet, there are many dietary approaches that are conducive to weight loss and we spent previous articles reporting on metabolic typing.

The exercise program used in the study can be done by anyone and that was the purpose for the research study.

Diet and Exercise Needed For Weight Loss

In order to lose weight and keep it off a diet and exercise strategy is necessary. Research indicates that only employing one strategy may lead to “yo-yo dieting”. Exercise And A Healthy Diet To Lose Weight

Thousands of people world wide are doing everything in their power to lose weight, but many of these people are failing drastically at doing it. Healthy Diet

Going on a healthy diet is the best you can do for your degrading health. A healthy diet includes various proteins, fresh fruits, green and leafy vegetables to fulfill the nutrient requirements of your body. Considering the changes in lifestyle, a healthy diet is a must to ensure a disease free life. After adopting a healthy diet, you will notice the changes in yourself and it also helps in eliminating chronic diseases like cancer and diabetes from your life. A Healthy Fitness Plan – Losing Weight With Exercise, Diet, and Weight Loss Pills

When you are looking for a healthy way to lose weight you have to make a lifestyle change, not just a crash diet and “magic” pill. You need to put together a smart plan of healthy eating, exercising and the safe use of weight loss pills to get the results you are looking for. Losing weight can be a difficult thing to do when you have a lot to lose or a weak plan to do it in.While we would suggest both some weight training and cardio in an exercise program, the study used progressive walking.

Progressive walking starts you out with slow walking for short periods of time in the beginning and gradually building up to brisk walking for up to 60 minutes a day for 5 days each week. While many would debate this approach, it certainly worked for the people in the study.

Minimally, get a pedometer and follow the basic walking guidelines of walking for at least 10,000 steps per day.

All the weight loss programs in the above study included three components though we only reported on the nutritional and exercise components of their program.

The third component, which we think is equally important, is counseling and support.
Like all lifestyle changes, having someone in your corner and who will hold you accountable is extremely valuable in insuring you get where you want to go. And, they can be your buddy!

Walking Guidelines
So, in addition to progressive walking mentioned in the study above, we thought you may want to know more about walking and how to get more steps in every week so we checked on it and here’s what we found:

Benefits of using a pedometer include finding out how many steps you take every day now so you can judge how many more will boost your activity level appropriately. According to a recent article in USA TODAY, people who wear a pedometer walk about 2000 more steps a day (about a mile) compared to those that don’t. The same article indicated that 12,000 steps a day was a better daily goal for those wanting to lose weight.

Suggestions for increasing the number of steps you take every day, beyond just being aware of it and using a pedometer include but are certainly not limited to:

1.Walk 4 laps around the track at a local high school…~2000 steps.
2.Take a brisk 20 minute walk during your lunch break…~2000 steps.
3.Program your computer to remind you to get up every hour and walk for 100 to 200 steps…~500-1500 steps.
4.Park further away from your destination and walk. One city block…~200 steps.
5.Take a few quick laps around the mall before you start shopping.
6.Take the stairs.
7.Join and use a gym.
8.Be fun and creative finding ways to add to your steps and to your health.

Any time with diet and exercise, a support person is extremely helpful in you accomplishing your objectives. That can be us and we are happy to help with all your healthy lifestyle decisions and it can be a walking buddy.
Do you know anyone who would benefit from walking too? Why not enlist them not only for your benefit but for theirs as well? Why not refer them here so both of you can be in it to win it!
