For some, weight loss can seem daunting at first, but if you keep these three tips in mind, you’ll have no problem starting and maintaining your weight loss goals.
- Start small. Whether you have 10 pounds or 100 pounds to lose, slowing adding more nutritious foods into your daily routine, as opposed to focusing on what foods you need to avoid can help you foster a healthier and more attainable lifestyle. Think about each meal and snack as a way to incorporate more fruits and vegetables. As we know, fruits and vegetables contain a high amount of nutrients and phytochemicals that can boost immunity, improve energy levels, and combat fatigue – all things we need during periods of weight loss!
- This is a Marathon, not a sprint. In order to maintain motivation and not lose momentum, it’s important to remember that weight loss is a long-term goal. Understanding that the process takes time will help you avoid frustration and stay committed and consistent with your healthy diet and activity goals.
- Diet Breaks. Just like we mentioned, sometimes the scale doesn’t budge for a week or two even when you’ve been following all the steps to lose weight. In these cases, a diet break can be your best bet. A diet break, which is a little different than a cheat meal, is a 1 to 2-day deviation from your diet, where you eat maintenance calories as opposed to being in a caloric deficit. This can help reset your metabolism and light that flame that helps you keep burning calories.
Focusing on increasing healthy habits while minimizing impedances is the key to success. Losing weight can be made much easier if you follow these three tips.
