Start Losing Weight This Week
Try to eat smaller more frequent meals every four hours. Balance nutrients by getting a portion of protein, complex carbohydrate, and healthy fat with each meal or snack.
Start by drinking a glass of water each morning after you wake up. Also, drink a full glass before each meal. As you begin to increase your water intake with meals, start to add a glass of water with your snacks. This will help aide digestion and jump start your metabolism.
Start to move more. Try getting up 10 minutes early each day to exercise. You will be amazed at how much energy this will give you and it will also help you burn calories to help with weight loss. Why not try body weight exercises and do 10 pushups, 10 body weight squats and 10 abdominal crunches. Try working your way up to 2-3 sets of each exercise every other day. Add a 10 minute walk on the days in between your body weight exercises to gradually increase your daily activity level. When you get stronger, you can progress by increasing your exercise time and adding weights.
Swap your fried foods for baked or broiled selections, which are much healthier and lower in calories. Replace pies, pastries, and cakes with fresh fruit.
Decrease your bread intake and try switching to open face sandwiches with just one slice of bread and skip the cheese. Eliminating one slice of bread and the cheese can reduce your meal by more than 150 calories.
Start to read labels at the grocery store and avoid purchasing anything with partially hydrogenated oils and high fructose corn syrup.
Try to eliminate late night snacks or swap them for a low calorie option such as a cup of blueberries, strawberries, or an apple.
