Now let’s be honest, diets suck. And unless you’re a very determined person, you’ll just gain it all back once you’ve gone off it. Because that’s the thing with diets, they only show us what to eat and what not to eat, but only until we’ve hit our desired weight.
After that, it’s good luck to you. There’s no instruction manual that comes with these diets to help you live a healthy lifestyle.
But that’s the key to losing weight and actually keeping it off; lifestyle. Because you can go on a 6-week no carb diet, lose 20 pounds, and then gain it all back. The reason for this? Diets are a temporary lifestyle. They’re only meant for a certain amount of time and if you don’t learn about how to live a healthier life, then you’ll never be healthy. The knowledge just isn’t there.
But you can keep it off. It’s all about incorporating the right things into your diet and actions. It’s all about knowing the fake “health advice” and learning what’s actually good for your body.
So all this to say that I’ve found an awesome set of graphs that’ll show you how to lose that weight and keep it off. They’re packed with great info that will help you live a healthier lifestyle and know your options.
First the Science of Weight Loss
This graph is packed with awesome information for you to know how to live healthy, how to measure your progress, and figuring out what exactly is right for you. It even goes into the best weight loss programs and how successful they are. So if you’re curious about what might work for you, then this is definitely something to check out.
Oh and what else is great about this graph? It shows how you can spot a weight loss program scam or know if it’s just a hype.. that’s pretty helpful.
Now to Start Your Day Off Right
That was some pretty great info in the last graph, but actually knowing what your healthier food options are is a huge help. They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so check out these healthy meals to start your day off right.
Remember, you want to incorporate the good things into your life without making yourself feel deprived. Choose things that you enjoy and don’t make you feel like you’re missing out. This is your new lifestyle after all, you don’t want to be miserable.

How to Do an Exercise Right
The whole point of exercising is to get healthy and be mobile later on in life when you’re older. But if you’re hard on your body, then there won’t be much of a future for you to stay active.
You may not feel it now or soon, but in the future, it won’t feel so great. And that’s why it’s so important that you learn how to have proper posture and form when exercising so that when it is later in life, you’ll still be able to stay in shape.
