WEIGHT LOSS TIPS
These weight loss tips will help you with your journey to a healthier and slimmer you…
Weight loss tip 1: Decide how much weight you need to lose – Most people start their weight loss journey by claiming to be X pounds overweight. This isn’t a healthy way to project or aim for weight loss. Calculate a reasonable weight against your height by using reliable methods like the BMI, and set a healthy weight loss target. This is often half the battle.
Weight loss tip 2: Time management – This is quite often overlooked. Decide which part of your day will be dedicated to exercise, when in the week you will stock up on groceries, and when you will do the cooking – all within your current work and home life routine. If you don’t do this now, your days will be rushed and unplanned, and you won’t be able to sustain your weight loss efforts.
Weight loss tip 3: Stock your kitchen – Keep your house well-stocked with fruits, vegetables, healthy meats, grains, cereals, spices, and flavors. Follow our tricks to healthy cooking, cooking vegetables for the week, and low-fat cooking posts to understand how best you can stock your kitchen with healthy and delicious ingredients. All of this will go into helping the next step – cooking healthy meals at home.
Weight loss tip 4: Eat healthy home cooked meals – Whether it’s you who’s cooking, a family member, or house help, ensure that every one practices healthy cooking methods, and ingredients. Ask any person who’s lost weight the healthy way, and you will always hear about how healthy home cooked meals were a big reason behind it. Use less oil, low salt, fresh produce, and you’ll start seeing results in no time.
Weight loss tip 5 : Start a cardio + weights workout – A healthy weight loss program is incomplete without a good exercise routine, and weight training mixed with cardio is the best way to lose weight. Of course, variations and forms exist, but any workout that stresses on muscle tone and increased heart rate will always help you lose weight and keep it off.
Weight loss tip 6: Alter your snacking habits – At Health Me Up, we have several healthy snacking ideas for you. Set those French fries aside, skip that aerated drink, and ban those unhealthy deep fried samosas. Explore the healthy snack world and you will find several appetizers, party snacks, movie snacks and meal accompaniments that will satisfy every craving of yours.
Weight loss tip 7: Have at least one active hobby – It isn’t sufficient to rely on just 30 to 60 minutes of physical activity per day. Moving from bed to office chair, and back to bed, isn’t a healthy way to live. Buy a motion sensor gaming console that lets you enjoy social games with friends and family, plan weekend trips, clean your house once a week, dance, play sports, the list is endless. Get out of the coffee shop and dining table rut, and you’ll have fun along with the healthy weight loss.
