3 Tips to End Your Struggle to Lose Weight

By Virginia Laird

Are you struggling to lose weight? If so, you are not alone. Millions across the country worry daily with this same battle. While some suggest there are pills and supplements to help lose weight, research suggests the best way to drop a few pounds is to exercise and eat a well-balanced diet. Health and wellness experts suggest three things you should include in your daily routine to help you lose weight, including:

  • Drink plenty of water
  • Make exercise a habit
  • Eat breakfast daily

Drink Plenty of Water

Far too many across the country do not make water a priority and prefer soda or juice instead. Drinking plenty of water has its benefits for the body. Research suggests that one should drink at least half of his or her body weight in ounces of water daily. This can help ensure the body maintains proper hydration and function.

Make Exercise a Habit

When looking to lose weight, exercise plays a key role. Exercise enhances the ability to burn calories, tone muscles, and drop fat cells. Fitness experts recommend those trying to drop a few pounds to make exercise a habit. Research suggests that individuals should work out at least 20 minutes, three to four times each week.

Eat Breakfast Daily

While many choose to skip out on eating breakfast, it can be harsh on the body. Eating breakfast helps get the metabolism going and makes it easier to focus throughout the morning. If you are not a big breakfast eater, this is no problem. Something small and on-the-go can be just as beneficial. Another benefit to not skipping the morning meal is that it prevents you from being full-on starving at lunch, which can lead to eating far more than needed. Try adding breakfast to your daily routine and see how quickly you are able to notice a change in your energy, focus, and waistline.

Now you are ready to begin losing weight, keep in mind that weight loss of any kind is always a great healthy combination of diet and exercise. Before you decide you can't lose weight, be sure that you find a way to get exercise as well. You needn't have a gym membership to get exercise; a simple walk around your neighborhood can help increase your ability to burn calories and lose weight. Now get out there; good luck and get moving.
