Tips on losing weight
Weight loss is
70-75% diet and 25-30% exercise
. You can’t just workout and eat poorly and expect to lose weight. You NEED a healthy diet.
Drink water! water can help you to feel full and eat less, can help
flush toxins out of the body
, and dehydration can slow down metabolism
If you feel hungry, try to drink a glass of water and see how you feel in 10 minutes.
Sometimes when you think you are hungry, you are really just thirsty
Avoid alcohol if possible
. nutrition wise it’s not the best, plus it can decrease your metabolism.
Don’t skip breakfast
and try to eat it early to kickstart your metabolism
When snacking and eating meals
make sure you are getting protein and fiber to help you feel full
! The more muscle you have, the higher your metabolism will be.
and eat while sitting down.
keep yourself busy
, so that you don’t just eat out of boredom.
Find an exercise that you like
. If you are doing something you hate, you won’t be able to stick with it.
Don’t plan on dieting for a month and then stopping. Try to
make a lifestyle change
Tell people about your weight loss or fitness goals, and accountability partners are great
Eat fruits and veggies
Don’t get too obsessed with the scale or a certain weight number. A pound of fat and a pound of muscle look much different.
Don’t get too stressed about the weight loss. It’s a journey.
