4 Wonderful Tips to Make It a Healthy Day Everyday

losing weight

There are many ways to lose weight and work out. But losing weight is different for each person. The thing about it though is that there is no cookie cutter, single method that is right for everyone. Therefore, as early as you decide that you need to shed weight, the first thing that you must do is to decide on a way that you know will work best for you. All of that will depend on a few things, like your work schedule (maybe you are working the night shift like me), and obviously your body type, etc.

Prepping Your Meals

Cooking in bulk and preparing your meals in advance is one the BEST things you can do to make sure you are on track and consistent. Packing meals will keep you from packing on those pounds. Take some time in the evening or the morning before work, to put together healthy meals to take to work with you. Most of my clients pack their shakes as well as their meals. Bringing in your own meals will keep you from falling prey to the high calorie items that you will end up with, at your local drive-thru.

Portion Control

When cutting down on portion size in order to lose weight, implement a wait time before you go back for more. A fifteen to twenty minute weight time will give your stomach time to tell you that it is full. If not, then have another small portion and wait again.

Protein, Protein, Protein

A healthy diet for weight loss includes plenty of helpful protein. Protein provides excellent nutrition – fuel for fat-burning. It also takes the place of unhealthy carbohydrates in your diet, reducing cravings for junk food. Many sources of protein carry less-healthy ingredients like fat and carbs. Minimize the effects of these undesirable additions by sticking to protein from lean meat, eg. fish/seafood, turkey, chicken, etc.


Drinking Alcohol While Losing Weight

If you love pairing wine with dinner and you are trying to lose weight, don’t cut it out of your life completely–it actually has heart-healthy benefits. Instead, try ordering it glass-by-glass. When you order a bottle of wine, it is common to try to finish the bottle instead of saving it for later. When you resist the bottle, you resist the extra calories that come with it.

Now you can see there are a lot of different options. If you think a program matches your temperament and goals, you need to look into it more deeply. If, after learning more, you think it is the one, go for it. Doing so is the sole method for determining its effectiveness in your specific case.
