The tried-and-true habits that have helped you lose weight the right way.
I really like tea, but I know my body craves water. I fill my water bottles at the end of the day, place them in the fridge to cool down before bed. I first drink a full bottle of water before I allow myself a glass of tea...then repeat the procedure. Usually, I get all my water in before my tea.
TO GET MY WATER FOR THE DAY, I PUT IT IN A SODA BOTTLE AND DRINK IT OUT OF THAT INSTEAD OF A CUP. I FIND IT EASIER TO DRINK IT OUT OF THE SODA BOTTLE, CUZ I AM SO USED TO DRINKING SODA, THAT WHEN I SEE THE BOTTLE, I JUST TAKE A DRINK.
I've noticed that when I eat high protein breakfasts, I eat better for the rest of the day and rarely get hungry between meals.
Eating breakfast every day helps me stay on track. I know that no matter what happens later in the day, I started the day out right. If you eat breakfast you wont be that hungery and dont gain calories.
We put our treat in the downstairs freezer. That way they are there but easier to forget. They last longer because they are kept frozen and because they are kept out of sight.
Buy clothes that FIT..don't hold off purchasing clothes that fit or purchase clothes a size smaller because that is what your goal is. Who cares what the label says. If your clothes fit, you feel more comfortable and confident and you will be in the smaller sizes sooner than you think :)
I always leave food on my plate...for instance I can have a slice of cake...eat 2 bites and toss the rest..this way I won't pick on it until it's done:)
Whenever you suddenly get the munchies, instead of heading to the refrigerator or cupboards, stick a piece of sugar free gum in your mouth. Just chewing it can satisfy the wanting to munch.
Okay, so when I get the urge to snack (which is pretty often since I'm a stay-at-home-Mom), I try to do 10 - 15 reps of some sort of exercise instead. For example, if I want to grab some M&Ms (using for potty training), I try to do 10 sit ups or push ups instead).
If your blood sugar is 120 or above you produce excessive insulin, which tells the body to store food as fat. Keep your blood sugar at around 90 to burn fat. Stay away from refined sugar (sucrose) and eat fruits instead (sugar in fructose form).
