Most people are already aware that diet and exercise plan should be balanced in order to have healthy lifestyle. The question for many becomes how to have balanced lifestyle.

Gyms around the world are enjoying their post-holiday, increased-traffic-and-income days. Millions of people are flocking to fitness rooms because they've told themselves—again—they're really going to follow diet and exercise plan more this year. Some—again—have already found their zeal's vanished into thin air. Unlike their pounds.

This is generally the time when our excitement and motivation to lose weight stares the cold, hard facts in the face: weight loss is not a one-month activity. Healthy diet and exercise plan must become a way of life in order to work. Suzanne Somers can't lose the pounds for you. Neither can Jenny Craig. So stop trying to find fad diets or quick-fix weight loss programs.

Losing weight is tough. Keeping it off is even tougher. You have to go into it with the right mind set. Whether you're trying to do it to look better, feel better or improve your health, let that be your starting point. Then do the research. Make an educated, informed decision based on your physical condition, your nutrition preferences, and your lifestyle.

If you know what you're doing and why, you'll find it easier to stick with it for the long haul. Sure, you can go on any diet and lose five pounds in two days, but that wreaks havoc on your body. The more sensible thing to do is get informed, eat moderately, and exercise regularly.

You can lose weight on almost any diet. The type of diet itself is not as important as your motivation, patience and perseverance. Turn your knowledge into power by finding what works for you, and you'll see the difference soon. Let the healthy diet and exercise plan be something that guides, rather than controls your life. And just remember that sensible diet and exercise plan is like other important things in life: it takes time and sweat, but the result is well worth the effort!
