Ok Hippies, what are your thoughts and experiences about long term weight loss?
People I have seen lose weight generally tend to relapse and sooner or later put some if not all of it back on.
I've always been what you could call stocky, but over the last couple of years I've turned into a shape and size I just don't like anymore and I want to loose a big chunk of it. Realistically I'd want to lose 4 stones or more.
How do I go about this in a healthy way that will keep the weight off long term?
I'm not looking for instant results, I just want to put myself in a healthier position and hopefully I'll feel better about looking in the mirror in a year or so, as well as actually feeling better.
I know the two main problems for me are over eating and a lack of exercise, but assuming I can address these, what else can I do to help me keep on track permanently?
I'm open to food suggestions, simple exercise tips, whatever advice you have to offer.
What foods can I eat that will healthily give me a full feeling? I'm open to all suggestions from all dietary walks of life. I'm currently omnivorous but that can change if it will help.
I'll pop back to this thread every now and then when I get chance.
