Set Goals for Your Diet Program 

Diet and exercise is the bread and butter of every dieter. Working only on these two aspects will not get you success and a manageable weight. To make your weight reduction plan more successful, give it a shape i.e. define it by setting a goal. A diet program without a goal is a meaningless diet program. So for any program, goals are very important to make your dreams turn into reality. You need not set a very long term goal. Start with a short and achievable goal first and then move towards the complicated goals. This will keep yourself motivated and you will achieve your target as well.

Change your habits

In order to see a change in your body shape, you must change some of your habits as well. Unless you bring about a change in your habits, nothing can be changed. Some of the habits like going late for sleep, having late night dinner, regular consumption of alcohol, gorging on junk foods are some of the habits of people which need to be changed with the changing year. By bringing these small changes in your lifestyle, you can make your program a real success.

Workout Regularly

Some diet plans comprise of only consumption of healthy and low calorie foods. But let me tell you, this kind of approach may not have a long lasting effect on your health. You may lose kilos for a particular time period. But as soon as you switch over to some other routine, you will regain the lost mass. Therefore, to lose weight permanently, you must equally contribute time towards working out regularly. The calories burnt through exercises are not gained by the body until you do not follow your diet.

In this way, if you are determined to take your resolutions seriously, you would definitely be seen with a reduced body mass. So, it is time that you pull up your socks and get ready for implementing these steps in your lifestyle.

Guest Post on Tips for Keeping Your Financial Fitness Resolution

The year 2013 has arrived and it is time for us all to plan our finances well. The resolution to maintain high savings, cut down on unnecessary expenses, and to stay ‘fit’ money-wise should be fulfilled this year. It is possible to manage your earnings and savings by following certain easy tips.

Start saving on a monthly basis:

You cannot save all your money in one go. Savings done at a fixed regular interval can accumulate to become a big amount. Make a habit of keeping aside a particular sum from your salary/ earnings at the starting of the money as a ‘savings’ amount. This amount will depend on your earning, the monthly expenses, and your lifestyle. However, once the amount is decided, then make sure that you would save this amount and refrain yourself from spending the saved money unnecessarily.

Keep a check on your credit amount:

Some people have a habit of borrowing money and not keeping a track of their credit amount. Even the credit taken from banks adds up to your credit score. When you wish to apply for loans or you seek insurance then this credit score plays a major role in the approval of such financial requests. Thus, this new year make sure that you keep a track of your credit score. Pay off your credit cards as soon as possible.

Invest in insurance policies:

Along with saving the money, it is important that you buy securities against the amount. Buying insurance policies will be of use when it comes to managing your finances. Always compare and then shop your insurance policy.

Maintain a weekly track pad to know how much you are spending:

Remember the old days when grandma used to buy groceries on Sundays and then write down all the products along with their prices in her little diary? Well, this oldest method is very useful if you wish to manage your finances effectively. Keep a note of what you are spending. That way you will be able to cut down on unnecessarily expenses. Also try to save more on your variable expenses (groceries, gas, electrical work etc).

Create an estimated budget and stick to that budget:

At the start of every month, create an estimated budget for yourself. Keep in mind that the budget should be realistic. It should be dependent on your earnings, your fixed expenses (home rent, school fees etc) and variable expenses (groceries, medical expenses, gas etc). Keep a buffer amount for emergencies. Once the budget has been estimated, make sure that you stick to this budget.

Apart from these tips, you can invest money in real estate, affordable health insurance or any other such venture this year to manage your finances.

  • If a person weighs 85% or less of their normal bodyweight, then this must be taken as a diagnostic criterion for the disease. As a result of restrictive eating, which is a type of anorexia nervosa, such a person will continuously lose weight. On the other hand, if they fluctuate between overeating and dieting, they will experience frequent weight loss or gain.

Bulimia nervosa and weight: This is a complex syndrome that makes an individual take food in large quantities, feel depressed about their overeating and then purge in order to compensate for overeating. Vomiting, excessive exercise, fasting, use of diet pills and misuse of laxatives are known as compensatory behaviors that an individuals indulges in so that they can control their weight.

  • These individuals are also obsessed with their weight and body image.
  • They experience weight fluctuations. In spite of their repeated attempts at purging, they do not lose weight. People with this disorder may not be obese. They may have normal weight, slightly underweight or overweight.

Binge eating disorder and weight: Binge eating disorder is bingeing in order to deal with any negative, suppressed emotions. People with this syndrome indulge in excessive eating and they are unable to resist their temptation to overeat. Usually these people are overweight. It is to be noted that not all obese people are affected with this disorder. In the USA, 2% of the adult population suffer from the disorder.
