If you have ever 'dieted,' than you've probably been hungry. And being hungry makes you frustrated which, of course, often leads to falling completely off the wagon bringing about the need for yet another diet. But, the reality is that it doesn't have to be that way. Being fit and healthy isn't really about dieting and deprivation. Ashleigh from Iron Forged Fitness offers the following weight loss 'secrets.' Some of them might pleasantly surprise you!

1. Eat more (of the right foods)

If you start a 'diet,' one of the first things you will want to do is restrict your calories and if you don't focus on or shift the actual foods you are eating, you will be starving. 2000 calories a day? It's a lot of food when you choose healthy options over junk. You may even find yourself eating more food than you were before and feeling a whole lot more satisfied. At the very least, you will be providing your body with much needed nutrients, minerals and vitamins. For some tips on eating the right foods, check out the BodyRock Meal Plan.

2. Eat frequently

It is a common misunderstanding that going long periods of time without eating is a good thing because you are not consuming extra calories. The only thing this actually does is slow your metabolism. Your body is a pretty incredible machine and it will do whatever it has to to survive so if it thinks you aren't going to feed it, it will hold onto everything it can for energy. If you shift this thinking and eat often, three meals with two or three snacks, your body will trust you and start using the food you eat instead of storing it for later.

3. Eat within an hour of waking up

You've already gone 7-8 hours overnight without eating so give your body some fuel in the morning to get your metabolism going. It is important to grab more than just a coffee. You need food. INPOST (2)

4. Sleep!

When you sleep, your body recovers and recalibrates itself. Sleep also balances your hormones -- in particular, those that regulate hunger. Getting enough rest also ensures that you will have the energy you need to be active.

5. Be active

Although nutrition is the most important factor in weight loss, being active will help speed things along. Plus, it is good for your overall health -- aiding everything from cardiovascular function to bone density! For over 80 hours of on demand workouts, check out SweatFlix℠. Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned fitness vet, SweatFlix℠ has something for you. And with new content being added all the time, you'll never fall into a workout rut! Okay, so these might not really be secrets but they are pretty simple steps you can take to start shedding those pesky pounds. Don't be afraid to eat up, get some rest and get yourself moving!
