3 Weight Loss Tips to Try Now

By Virginia Laird

There is something about this time of year that has millions trying to lose weight. For some it could be the impending swimsuit season, while others may simply want to shape up to wear their shorts. No matter what the reason, shedding some pounds always takes dedication and hard work. Health and wellness experts admit that many who start this journey find a reason to stop before having reached the intended goal. Rather than being one of those who call it quits prematurely, experts have offered a few simple tips for you to follow to help  make your weight loss journey a success. These tips include:

  • Give up soda
  • Keep a food journal
  • Exercise often

Give Up Soda

Soda is a tasty treat that is actually no one's friend. Research suggests that regular soda is loaded with sugar which can be detrimental to weight management. Diet soda, although not full of sugar, leads to bloating, which can also make the battle with weight more difficult. Health and wellness experts suggest that you should give up soda when you are trying to shed a few pounds, opting instead for an abundance of water. It is recommended that you should consume at least half of your body weight in ounces daily.

Keep A Food Journal

A food journal is simply writing down every food or beverage you consume on a daily basis. For many, this can be an eye-opening experience. Far too many consume food without realizing exactly how much is being eaten. Health and wellness experts admit that when it comes to weight management, every handful, pinch, and sip counts toward your calorie count. Start today writing down what you eat and see for yourself where you can (or need to) cut back. You might be shocked at exactly how much you are consuming in one day.

Exercise Often

Health and wellness experts have always advised that those who truly have a desire to manage their weight should consider making exercise part of their daily routine. While there are many who may try to suggest this means spending hours at the gym, this is not necessary. Experts suggest that walking through your neighborhood, on the the local walking trail, or on a treadmill, can be enough to get your weight moving in the right direction.

Following this advice you are now ready to begin your weight loss journey and stick to it until you meet the results you want.
