3 Simple Steps to Weight Loss

By Virginia Laird

Losing weight can be a treacherous battle. One with many hills, valleys, and far too many unwanted plateaus. However, the joy of achieving your goals may be just enough to keep you moving. As you set out on your weight loss journey, there will be plenty who suggest a quick-fix diet. While these have merit, many are expensive and short-term. Health and wellness experts admit that while shedding a few pounds can be challenging, there are some changes to your lifestyle (and diet) which can help produce results in a big hurry, including:

  • Limit your snacking
  • Keep a food journal
  • Drink plenty of water

Limit Your Snacking

Snacking can put a damper on any diet. Although grazing (a little here and there) on food for a good part of the day may seem like you are eating virtually nothing, you are most likely consuming far too much and do not even realize it. Health and wellness experts suggest that limiting your snacking is a great way to manage your weight and improve your health. Rather than eating whatever you want, when you want it, plan your snacks where they are two to three hours from your meals and make certain they are balanced and healthy.

Keep a Food Journal

Health and wellness experts admit that keeping a food journal is key in maintaining your overall health and managing your weight. Far too many consume food without thinking about the calories it may include. Experts suggest that keeping a food journal can be eye-opening, as many simply have no idea how much is being consumed in one day until everything is written down. Start today writing down your food and beverage consumption and see where you can make healthy changes to improve your weight and your health.

Drink Plenty of Water

Drinking plenty of water is vital in weight management. All too often, when other beverages are included in the diet they bring with them a host of calories. These are generally empty calories as they offer little to no nutritional value. Experts suggest that water is not only a zero calorie beverage, it can also function as a filler to help you curb your cravings of overeating. It is suggested that you consume at least half of your body weight in ounces each day to stay properly hydrated. These experts also suggest, that when using water to help you consume less at mealtime, it is best to drink a glass of water prior to sitting down to eat.

Start making these steps a habit in your life and enjoy a slimmer you!
