The tried-and-true habits that have helped you lose weight the right way.
I try to keep an extra apple or something at work for a snack and to keep me away from office donuts! I am way more apt to eat a sliced apple than a whole apple so I bought an extra apple core/slicer and keep it in my desk.
disappointed no weight loss and have been busting my but
if you are sitting here hours a day for recreation its going to be harder to shed those pounds! Go outside and walk, swim, play badminton or volleyball..ANYTHING that makes you move!
I find that eating more fruits and veggies (rather than grains or carbs) seriously affects my weight loss. I didn't lose any weight for two weeks when I was low on my fruit/veg supply, one day after eating at least 6 servings of f/v...I'm down another pound.
Remember that each person loses weight differently. Add one new thing to your exercise plan, food intake, OR other weight loss factor, such as drink eight 8-oz glasses of water per day. Do whatever you choose for at least one week. If it works for you, keep doing it for another week, one more week.
Sometimes I get the munchies after dinner. So, instead of eating junk food while watching tv, I postpone dessert for about 1 hour after dinner. I do the dishes, clean up the kitchen, watch a little tv, and it's nearly 8 pm - my usual time for the munchies.
How to get snatches of activity throughout the day.
Walk around dining room table doing intervals, walk slow for 1 minute, walk fast for 1 minute, jog for 1 minute, continue this cycle for 10 minutes. Walk/Run up and down stairs- Walk up and down 1 minute, run up and down 30 seconds, to 10 minute...
I make sure that my portions are all decided on and measured out before I ever take my first bite. This is easy at home, because you control how much you put on your own plate. However, I always make sure that the same is true when I eat out by either planning ahead and going to the restaurant's
How many times have I wanted to eat, not realizing that I was really thirsting for water??! When I stay hydrated, I'm less tempted to overeat and I have so much energy throughout the day. Water is a huge key!!!
