The 5 Rules Of Weight Loss To Get You Started On A Healthy Path!
We all want to feel good about ourselves.
Whether it's to look better or something as simple as climbing a flight of stairs without feeling like you're going to pass out.
The point is there are things that you can do change an attitude, adjust your food habits that can make it easier for you to get started.
1) Don't Call It a Diet. Call it a Lifestyle Change.
To lose weight and keep it off you need to make lifestyle changes. Simple things like drink more water, don't eat after six pm or even parking your car on the far end of a parking lot.
Establish rules for yourself. If you want to eat something, eat it, in moderation by cutting a portion in half but definitely don't deprive yourself.
2) Exercise Right!
Combine cardio with strength training for maximum benefits!
Hooping is light Cardio and can burn up to 500 calories an hour! If you combine that with strength training three to four times a week you will build up lean muscle and that lean muscle will at the same time give your metabolism a big boost!
3) Avoid Hunger Anxiety.
It's okay to get hungry but you need to be smart about what you put in your mouth!
Five small meals a day will keep your metabolism balanced and your hunger will be handled.
Prepare veggies in advance and have them clean and ready in the refrigerator. Almonds are a great source of protein but know that you can't eat a whole bag of them. Everything in moderation. Trader Joe's has small bags already portioned out and ready to go, no effort required.
4) Eat Protein, Produce and Plant Based Oils for Weight-Loss Wins!
Protein fills you up. Produce is packed with fiber that makes you feel full. Plant based oils like olive oil or avocados will fill you up and are a healthy alternative to snacking on junk food.
5) Crash Diets Don't Work!
Everybody is looking for a miracle and crash diets seem to give us all that instant gratification we desire. It's not real!
You will see weight loss but the second a morsel of food crosses your lips you will see pounds creep back on.
Instead opt for eliminating unhealthy food, eat smart, be aware of portion control and space your meals out to curb hunger.
Losing weight doesn't have to be a miserable experience and you are not alone.
Just commit to a new, healthier lifestyle and know that you will stumble but that doesn't matter. What matters is that you continue and get the body you want with the good health that comes along it.
