What if I told you to join a top weight loss program and gave you false expectations? Lose 30 pounds in 30 days. That’s a pound a day, what if after the first week you’ve only lost 2 pounds? Maybe you were busy and couldn’t make all the meal suggestions, maybe they were asking you for a lot of money so you skipped a meal or two, or maybe you walked in saying this is it. I’ve tried 10 programs, none of them worked and if this doesn’t show me results, I’m done.
It’s the same with becoming a millionaire, which is why many people give up on their dreams because they set unrealistic goals and quit before they understand why. Wouldn’t you agree that before you become a millionaire you have to earn your first $100 and then $1000, after you get better, learn more, gain more knowledge and then earn $10,000 and so on?
So let’s start at the beginning. If you’re reading this article, you probably have a good general idea of how to lose weight, but you can’t put all the pieces together. How about first setting a realistic goal of 4 ounces a day for the first week and 8 ounces a day for the next 7 weeks? That would equate to about 26 pounds of weight loss after the first 2 months x 3 = 78 pounds in 6 months and he started with a simple goal of 4 ounces per day.
5 Simple Ways to Lose 4 Ounces a Day
Start with the basics:
low calorie intake
Eat more fruits and vegetables
These things we already know help now is the time to put it all into action and make a game plan for the week, starting with one day.
Beware of Energy Crashers that give you a boost with sugar, sucrose, high fructose corn syrup. These things will only make you crash and burn at noon as they do not benefit your energy levels. I recommend eating plenty of whole wheat and grains along with fruits and vegetables. If you are going to have an energy drink to increase your energy levels I recommend using one that has FOS (Fructooligasaccharide).
FOS has been a popular dietary supplement in Japan for many years, even before 1990, when the Japanese government set up a 22-expert “Functionalized Food Study Committee” to begin regulating “special nutrition foods or functional foods” that contained the fortified food categories. (eg, vitamin-fortified wheat flour), and now it is becoming increasingly popular in western cultures for its prebiotic effects.
FOS can be considered a small dietary fiber with (like all fibers) low caloric value. The fermentation of FOS results in the production of gases and acids. The latter provides some energy to the body.

Remember that the key to losing weight is not just doing the work, but setting realistic goals and checking in on your achievements on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. If you loosen up in 1 or 2 areas, don’t give up, that’s fine, go back and review your goals and start over.
Last but not least, the most important ingredient in weight loss is your WHY! If your WHY is big enough, you can do anything.
