An effective way to weight loss

Are you one of the people seeking ways to lose weight? Well, in this post I would like to share my experience which I found safe, effective and natural way to lose weight.

When I gave birth to my son over a year ago, I have noticed many changes to my body and the major change is weight gain. I really don’t want to take any diet pills or surgery just to lose weight but I am not against to those who wanted that way it’s their choice.

I don’t want to deprive myself eating and enjoying delicious foods especially during the Christmas season so I started to monitor my food intake this January 2010 for my weight loss program. My aim is not to look sexy but to feel healthy and energize because I believe that if you have a good health (not obese) you can perform at your best and can work even better.

My weight loss program plan is during week days and I can eat a regular meal during weekends. They say that summer is the best time to lose weight so what I did is to find an easy way not that expensive way to to reduce fats in my belly. The best solution that I have found is to eat watermelon and skyflakes crackers instead of rice in lunch and supper.

Here is my weight loss program plan:
Note: The calories noted here is an approximate calorie count which I personally research


Do some stretching exercise for the arms, legs and hips about 8 to 12 counts (this will make you feel better the whole day)
1 cup Steamed Rice (271 calories)
hard boiled egg or fried egg (optional) (90 calories)
Choice of any kind of fish preferably tuna (115 calories) or pork of about 2-3 oz.( 4 to 6 tablespoons – 205 calories)
Skim milk (80 calories) or whole milk (150 calories) or coffee ( according to study coffee helps increases metabolism )
Enough water approximately 2 to 3 glasses

1 pack of skyflakes (120 calories) and 2 cups of watermelon ( approximately 92 calories)
any vegetable available preferably green leafy if available at home ( like garlic kangkong – 150 calories)
1 glass of water

Afternoon Snack:
1 cup of watermelon (46 calories)
1 pack skyflakes (120 calories)
2 glasses of water

If sleeping early at 8pm I’ll eat just 1 skyflakes (120 calories) and drink 2 glasses of water
If sleeping late I’ll eat tuna ( about 3 tablespoon – 70 calories ) and any leafy vegetable (good for digestion – 75 calories) and 1/2 cup of rice (110 calories).

Approximately the total daily calories of my weight loss program plan are 1, 300 to 1, 400 calories.

The daily calories intake recommended for the average adult is 2, 000 calories (female) and 2, 500 calories (male).

In two weeks following my weight loss program plan I lose almost 1 and a half kilos then after another two weeks I lose again 1 and a half kilos. This is really a wow! So I still continue my plan.

I still have much research about weight loss which I personally experience that really works and I will reveal it in my next post.

From my weight gain in giving birth I think I already lose 8 kilos in nine months.

    It's nice to know that there are some that still set a standards in their goals, specifically in losing weight. In addition, Cosmetic Surgery Philippines said that, cardio exercise and dancing are some of a great tool to loose weight. Now, if you still have problem with your waistline after giving birth. You can start jogging and burn calories as much as you can. So that your skin would be much firmer.
