Weight Loss Tips from the Experts

By Virginia Laird

When it comes to losing weight, many may be tempted to jump on board a variety of the expensive programs that your friends may be selling. While there is some success behind these monthly membership fee and autoship programs, they are also costly. Health and wellness experts advise that losing weight comes down to the simple act of eating fewer calories than you burn in a day. Research suggests that whatever plan you choose, you can find success with determination and hard work. A few tips these professionals advise using as you begin your weight loss journey following include:

  • Consider giving up soda
  • Keep a food journal
  • Take your lunch to work

Consider Giving Up Soda

Soda, although tasty and satisfying, is loaded with sugar. For those who drink regular soda it is vital to know that one soda can contain twice the amount of sugar in grams that you should consume each day. This can lead to gaining weight rather than shedding it. If you are serious about trying to drop the pounds, the first thing the experts advise is to stop the soda habit. It is recommended that you find a way to make water your choice of beverage. Water helps promote healthy body function while being zero calories.

Keep a Food Journal

Tracking the food you consume can help you lose weight. Health and wellness experts suggest that many are simply unaware of how many calories they are consuming until they begin the habit of writing everything down. As one who has done this, I can admit it can be truly eye-opening to look back (at the end of the day) and count your calories. Often, what seems to be a harmless cookie or snack can prove to be far too many calories. Keeping a food journal is simple. Just write down everything you eat and drink throughout the day and look back at the end of the day to see where you are on your calorie consumption.

Take Your Lunch to Work

Taking your lunch to work is another way to help you avoid eating the wrong things or too much. For those who find themselves eating out too often, you may find that you are limited in your choices for lunch. It is best to pack your lunch. Doing this can allow you to make sure your meals are balanced, and low fat. Health and wellness experts suggest that taking your lunch to work, rather than eating out, can help you slim up.

If you are serious about dropping a few pounds, take this advice and apply it in your life right away. Before you know it, the scale may be moving backward. Good luck!
