It doesn’t have to be hard or a torture to lose weight. Just follow at least three of these tips and you will be thinner and healthier in days! PLUS, the weight will stay off this time :-)
1. SNACK, BUT SMARTLY
Grazing between meals used to be on the weight-loss hit list. But nutritionists now
know that it’s better to satisfy a craving with a healthy snack than ignore it and risk
a junk-food binge later. The best choices are filling, protein-packed snacks, such as
one stick of string cheese, a tablespoon of peanut butter on a piece of fruit (apples
are great), or a medium-size bowl of edamame.
2. TURN OFF THE TV
Did you know that dining while watching tv can make you take in 40% more calories
than usual? And texting, driving, or any other distracting activity during a meal can
also result in your eating too much. Instead, make each meal something you put on
a plate and sit down to, even if you’re eating solo.
3. STEP ON THE SCALE DAILY
If your regular weight increases several days in a row, it’s a red flag letting you know
you need to cut back a little or beef up your workouts slightly. Or you can use your
clothes and how they fit as a measuring tape too.
4. WORKOUT THREE TIMES A WEEK
Doing regular workouts will help maintain lean muscle which will in turn help your body
burn fat automatically for you. The more muscle you have, the higher your metabolism
will be, so you’ll burn more calories as you go through your day, even when you’re
5. REACH FOR YOUR CELL
Next time your mind gets stuck on a certain food, call a friend and redirect your brain
by asking how her day’s going. Research shows that cravings only last about 5 minutes,
so by the time you hang up, the urge to devour junk will have subsided. J
6. EAT A BIG, BALANCED BREAKFAST
Breakfast is and always will be the MOST important meal of the day. Making sure you
get your carbs, protein and some fat will you’re your blood-sugar levals steady and
prevent hunger pangs later on which might make you have cravings later on, studies
have shown. I’m not making this up. Choose something that will satisfy your tummy
and taste buds – like egg whites and turkey bacon with whole-wheat toast. Hmmmm
7. WATCH THE ALCOHOL
One innocent-looking margarita or cosmopolitan can add up hundreds of calories that
won’t quench your appetite. Treat yourself just on the weekends and cut back somewhere
else or stick to a glass of wine (preferable red), light beer, or vodka and soda. (Three
drinks that each have about 100 calories per serving.)
8. HAVE FRUIT TWICE A DAY
Fruit has no fat and is mostly water, so it’ll fill you up while leaving less room on your
plate (and in your stomach) for high-calorie foods. Don’t worry about fruit’s carb count —
they are the good kind of carbs and also have lots of healthy fiber.
9. STAY ASLEEP LONGER
Getting to bed just 30 minutes earlier and waking up 30 minutes later than you normally
do can help you make better food choices, researchers report this too. Also, when you’re
well-rested, you’re less likely to snack out of fatigue or stress.
10. VISUALIZE YOURSELF THIN
When you feel your willpower breaking, imagine a mental picture of yourself when you
looked and felt slim. The visual motivation keeps you focused on your goal weight and
reminds you that it IS attainable, since you’ve achieved it before.
I’m hoping this list will help you out. Start by using 3 of these tips today, and you’ll start
looking and feeling slimmer by tomorrow 🙂
