Gobble up a Heavy Morning Meal
Eating a healthy breakfast helps to fire up your metabolism, which will help you make healthy and smart choices throughout the day and with all the energy you might even plan to hit the gym. Studies have shown that breakfast eaters tend to eat fewer calories throughout the day than people who don’t eat a morning meal.
Tip:Have breakfasts high on protein (eggs, oats with milk or nuts) it keeps you full for a longer period of time.
Keep the Water Flowing
Water helps in detoxification, reduces acidity and bloating, keeps you energetic and gives you a radiant skin. Water and water rich foods can help you fill up longer which will help to keep your weight in check.
Tip: If having plain water gets boring then you can add lime or mint leaves to dress it up a little.
Salt and Sugar are not as Awesome as they Taste
Excess salt in the diet means excess bloating and water retention. And high sugar content gets converted to fat which just adds the extra kilos to your weight that you are trying to lose. So stay away from packaged and processed food and choose whole fruits and fresh vegetables.
Tip: Lime juice can be used instead of salt and stevia or honey could be used as sugar replacements.
Don’t forget to Include the Big F
Fiber from green vegetables makes you feel full and gives you radiant skin. But excess of it can cause bloating especially in people who are not used to it. So try and include different sources of fiber in your diet like whole grains, oats, legumes or quinoa.
Tip: have salad or soups before you start your main meal. The fiber content in them will curb your appetite and will help you to keep your weight in check.
Be On Your Toes
Having a healthy diet is really important but fitness and exercise are just as important and so don’t let your workouts get wayward. Treat your workouts like appointments so that other obligations don’t get into your way. Even 20-30 minutes of workouts a day will do wonders to boost your metabolism and kick start the calorie burning process.
Tip: If you don’t have time to hit the gym then even brisk walks help especially post meals.
Don’t Avoid your Growling Tummy
Smart snacking and balanced meals keeps the body fueled which can help to keep the hunger pangs at bay. Eating too little can cause monstrous cravings that are really hard to ignore. So when we let ourselves become hungry we end up binging on unhealthy foods that are usually high on carbs.
Tip: Keep healthy foods like nuts, fruits or granola bars handy especially when at work or travelling.
Lack of sleep can hinder your weight loss efforts by increasing food cravings and affecting metabolism. So make sure you get a sound sleep to stay active and to keep the dark circles away.
Tip: avoid watching TV or using phones right before going of to bed. Doing so will help you relax and de-stress.
Get a Pusher!
Sticking to your weight loss journey can be difficult if you don’t have anyone cheering you up. The best way to get support is to take family and close friends in confidence. This way you are accountable to them and are constantly reminded of your goals.
Tip: if you don’t have close friends or family to confide in, you can join any fitness group to stay motivated.
Chew like a Cow!
Chewing your food slowly will help you enjoy the flavor of the food. This way you’ll eat less, feel more satisfied and recognize the feeling of fullness before it’s late. When we eat fast we take in too much calories before realizing we have eaten enough.
Tip: Avoid second helpings and take a pause between two bites.
10. Keep an eye on the prize
Before taking a bite of that cake or delaying your workout think about your goal or that dress you want to wear for your wedding. Before you take a decision ask your self will this help me to achieve my goals?
Remember YOU are the only one that can control your life and choices, so please make the right ones!
Tip: put the picture of your wedding dress in your room to constantly remind you of your goals.
