Many people find it hard to lose weight no matter how much exercise they do everyday, be it at the gym or as a part of physiotherapy sessions. The fact of that matter is that in order to lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle than you're accustomed to you also have to look at your diet and the food you put into your body. While, yes, regular exercise is essential if you aren't eating healthy you won't be seeing any positive effects anytime soon.

We know it's easier said than done when it comes to preaching exercising and eating a proper diet but you'll find that if you're willing to put in the hard work that goes into changing your lifestyle then you'll be rewarded handsomely for your efforts. The first thing you have to do is take a look at the foods you eat around the house or at your autism treatment job, including both the foods that are good and bad for you, and eliminate the unhealthier foods.

If you're unsure of what foods to eliminate you can talk to a nutritionist or dietitian that specializes in meal plans and the two of you can work together towards creating a daily meal plan that you can follow, which will help you lose weight. For the most part you're going to want to eliminate the amount of carbohydrates, trans fat and saturated fats that are food in not-so-healthy foods like margarine, pop, butter, cheese, ice cream, chicken skin, lard, packaged snack foods like popcorn or chips, doughnuts, candy bars and any type of fried foods.

It can be difficult to eat healthier, especially if you don't have the time to make yourself healthy meals because of how much time you spend at the treatment office, but you have to find a way around that. One suggestion we have is go to the grocery store and stock up on the fruits and vegetables that you love to eat, whether they're carrots, kale, cherry tomatoes, bananas, apples or grapes.

What are the basic food groups one should follow?

Once your cupboards are full of all the fruits and veggies that you could fit into the trunk of your car it's time to find some easy to make recipes that you can eat at home or take with you to your Toronto sports medicine gig that don't take too much time to whip up and leave you with tons of left-overs. Stir-fry, fruit salad, oatmeal, and vegetable soup are just a few ideas to get you started on your new and improved healthy lifestyle! Good luck!
