Need Help With Weight Loss? Try This

By Virginia Laird

With the holiday season forging straight ahead, it is necessary to begin considering what you can do to prevent weight gain, and in some cases promote healthy weight loss. While there are many who believe this to be an impossible feat during this time of year, it can be done. Health and wellness experts offer a great many tips to help with weight loss including:

  • Drink more water
  • Spend time at the gym
  • Get plenty of sleep 
  • Keep a food journal

Drink More Water 

Consuming plenty of water can be helpful when trying to manage your weight. Water can function as a filler to help curb appetite and cravings. Health and wellness experts highly recommend that you consume at least one glass of water prior to each meal to help control your portions. It is also said that staying properly hydrated can help curb your feelings of hunger throughout the day, when otherwise you would have the desire to eat out of boredom. It is suggested that you consume at least half of your weight in ounces of water each day. 

Spend Time at the Gym

Health and wellness experts say that spending time at the gym can also be helpful in shedding a few unwanted pounds. Exercise helps the body burn excess calories and promotes a healthy metabolism. Those who are serious about slimming up should begin making time to exercise each day. It is advised that you work out at least 30 minutes each day.

Get Plenty of Sleep 

There is truth to the theory that plenty of sleep can help promote weight loss. When the body is fully rested, all the systems of the body are able to function without interruption. This includes the metabolism, which plays a key role in weight management. It is suggested that the average adult should get at least six hours of uninterrupted sleep each night. For those with small children this can be difficult to achieve, but it should still be the goal. Start tonight getting plenty of sleep.

Keep a Food Journal

Keeping a food journal is imperative when it comes to losing weight. Writing down everything you consume each day can help you recognize your calorie intake. This is the first step in taking accountability for your weight. According to research, having the ability to look back at what you have eaten to recognize where you can cut back is a great way to begin managing your diet. 

Now is the time to take action with your weight loss!
