However, when it comes to actually losing your weight, nothing seems to do wonders.

Puzzled about what is going wrong? Lets try to figure out some “not so common” facts about weight loss that might help you remain slim on a consistent basis. Be aware that these are not substitutes of your weight loss program, but enhancer of the same!

Your Weight Loss Goals in New Innovative WaysNow Use Internet Differently to Lose Weight!
Enough searching for tips to lose weight, use Internet and its many creative and unique resources to help you lose weight.

Bet you'll lose weight: Find out websites that help you take challenges. Bet on them, whether you can lose weight and get in shape. When your money's at stake, you will definitely do it! Won't you? Some sites also let bettors challenge each other. Bet that you'll beat someone else at achieving your goal weight. These sites assist you track each participant's progress and reward you for hitting your goals.

Tweet what you eat: The website with the same name offers a simple food diary that lets you track your food and weight on the Web or your mobile using Twitter. If you don't include calories as part of the tweet, the site fills them in for you using its food calorie database. It also gives daily reminders if you forget to update your diary. Such many other websites help you watch what you're eating.

Make online weight-loss friends: A University of Vermont study says that online weight-loss buddies help you keep weight off. The volunteers in the research program who were assigned to an Internet-based weight maintenance program sustained their weight loss better than those who used face-to-face support groups.

Keep Your Taste Buds Satisfied!
Baked, boiled food; raw fruits and vegetables- all said and done for losing weight- you also need to keep your taste buds alive and satisfied! Now you know the reason for those hunger pangs when you forget all your weight loss plans and binge on that junk food!

Take a weekly “high calorie – low calorie” treat: Now what is this “high calorie – low calorie” treat? These foods don't give the feeling of deprivation and they are categorized as high calorie food but down in the chart ( lesser calories than the more higher calorie foods). For example- just 83 calories in 85 grams of Lobster, just 60 calories in 12 large Shrimp, just 66 calories in 57 grams of smoked salmon and just 8 calories in one tablespoon of whipped cream that can be dropped over a bowl of fresh fruit for dessert. You can even take a spoonful of ice cream on this bowl of fruits or a little cheese with a lots of salad but remember- only once in a week!

Use smaller and dark colored plates: Colors have impact on appetite too. Dark blue kills your appetite. So go for such plates to eat in. Remember not to buy red, orange and yellow ones, they will just throw your appetite out of control- just think of those big fast food chains and the colors of their logos all in red- were they so foolish, not to research before finalizing their logo colors? Anyway, when you go for your weekly treat to these restaurants, remember to order half of your food to be packed even before it is served. This way you'll get two treats- one for the morning breakfast! Anyway, only half of these high calorie food is enough to feed you for once.

Watch Your Drinks!
Its good that you drink a lots of water but what about other drinks you consume? Do you keep watch on them along with what you eat? Probably no! You never thought that drinks too can contribute calories that you are so confidently losing by eating low calorie foods.

Carbonated drinks, add to your calories: For every 20 ounces of your favorite cola, you are taking in 250 calories. Several glasses a day and about 1000 liquid calories enter your body. Simple soda too can do what a cola can do to your weight loss program- ruin it!

Diet drinks, not safe either: Now you might be thinking of going for diet colas or soda instead of colas. A study published in a medical journal said (way back in 1980s when the safety issue of artificial sweeteners was being debated) that artificial sweeteners cause increase in appetite. More recently, some health studies too have suggested that they actually increase cravings for sweet foods.

Relax Yourself and Reduce Weight!
And as the saying goes “old is gold,” with adopting all the new ways to lose weight, also listen to ayurveda which suggests massage as an excellent way to reduce weight. It increases metabolism and helps fat absorption but only when done by expert hands. So find some good Ayurveda Treatement Centre and relax yourself while they help you reduce your weight!
