The best thing about social media is that it allows users with similar interests to get in touch with each other, regardless of what part of the world they are in. If your goal is losing weight then you might be surprised to find that social media sites are your best ally.
Every social media site offers different advantages when it comes to losing weight, sticking to your diet, tracking the calories you eat or simply acquiring healthier eating habits.
These are the different ways in which the most common social media sites can help you to lose weight when you diet and some of these are listed below:
Facebook: one of the most popular social media sites, Facebook can be a meeting point for all those users fighting the dreaded ‘bulge’.
Just by typing ‘lose weight’ or ‘diet’ in your Facebook search tool gives you access to an infinite range of pages specializing in this topic. Many people around the world are trying to lose some pounds or follow a diet and Facebook helps to connect and encourage one and other.
Forums: unlike Facebook, forums are social media sites in which users can enjoy more in-depth interaction with other users.
The great thing about forums is that they allow internet users to sign in to very specific conversations, which means that people are more likely to find other users with the same worries and concerns as themselves.
You can therefore get to know other users on a more personal level and you can all track your calorie intakes together. A number of people like forums because they feel they offer an ‘online family’ who support and encourage them.
Blogs: interacting with experts and getting professional advice are the top benefit of trusting blogs to help you lose weight – making them a great option.
For instance, a blog specializing in losing weight may be written by experts who publish relevant advice. Blog experts can advise you on what specific diet would be best for you or could let you know what tools are available to help you track your progress.
Twitter: Brits looking for losing some pounds can also turn to the new favourite social media site – Twitter.
Like Facebook, a great advantage of Twitter is getting in touch with a very high number of people who have similar objectives.
This encourages you to fight for your goal by reminding you that you are not alone.
Hash-tags are a great feature of Twitter which allow you find everything related to specific words such as #losingweight or #diet.
