Losing weight can become an obsession that can have its own negative effeects on your life if you struggle to maintain any diet or keep the pounds off. You end up not enjoying food anymore and constantly putting yourself down for having something to eat or drink.
There are successful ways to diet and lose weight. To be clear diet and weight loss are two different things. Diet is food intake and weight loss can be diet and exercise. Before starting any regimen you should consult with your doctor or primary caregiver to make certain that you are being safe and not exposing yourself to any unhealthy consequences. That being said it is not difficult to safely lose weight if you have reasonable expectations and do not do anything to extreme. The most basic principles of most diets are portion control coupled with moderate exercise. From there they vary the types of foods you can eat and when you can eat them to what types of exercises you should do (cardio vs muscle building).
