There are so many weight loss programs to choose from nowadays that it has become a "mine field" when trying to find the right one for You.
Do you choose an online weight loss program, an organized group weight loss program, a DIY "on your own" weight loss program, a magazine based weight loss program, - the list is endless.
At the end of the day only you can decide which weight loss program is the right one for you.
You could start by talking to friends and relatives to find out about any weight loss programs they have used and what the results were like; did they find it easy, did they have support, DID IT WORK? etc.
When choosing the best weight loss program for you, you must consider whether it is one that you are going to be able to stick with. ie will it help keep you motivated and goal orientated, after all if you lose interest after a few days or weeks then you will not be achieving what you set out to do, and will be demoralized for the future.
Also you must consider how safe is the weight loss program in the long run. Does it have a well balanced diet plan that includes a variety of foods from each food group. You should be looking at a minimum calorie count of 1200 for women and 1600 for men. Do not think that a starvation weight loss plan is going to work. Yes it might help you loss a few pounds for the beach, but they will return twice as quickly!
Also you must include exercise in your weight loss program. This is vital. You might lose weight without exercise but you will lose more and lose it quicker with some form of exercise. Idealy it will be a daily exercise program that you can fit in without it becoming a chore. Walk the dog, walk to work, walk the kids to school, join a gym, swim - you decide, but find something you enjoy and it will help almost as much as calorie counting, and you will feel better and have more energy as well.
Before you start any weight loss program and exercise program you must consider your health! If you are in any way unsure then you MUST consult your doctor for advise and guidance.
