Weight Loss Made Simple: 3 Tips to Follow
By Virginia Laird
Year after year, it seems I set out on a plan to lose weight. While I may lose a few pounds here or there, like many across the nation, I seem to give in to a variety of food temptations. Most of these stop dieting in its tracks. Health and wellness experts advise that starting on any plan that requires you to give up too much all at once is a recipe for failure. These professionals advise that making small changes steadily is one of the better ways to ensure success of weight loss. A few things they suggest to begin making your healthy changes include:
- Get up and get moving
- Pack your lunch
- Avoid drinking soda
Get Up and Get Moving
The couch potato life can seem to be a tempting one, but it is far from healthy. Health and wellness professionals suggest that getting up and moving is a great way to promote healthy living. These same experts suggest that getting moving can be more than just exercising. It can be cleaning house, working in the yard, going to the store, and a host of other activities. All of these promote an active and healthy lifestyle. Make healthy living a priority by getting up and moving today.
Pack Your Lunch
If you are one who finds yourself at work all day, limited only to the fast foods around work for lunch, it may be time to consider packing a lunch. Research suggests that eating out can pack on the weight. Many fast foods littered with fat, sodium, and a variety of other components which can be hard on the body. Taking your lunch is a powerful way to control your calories and begin dropping the weight.
Avoid Drinking Soda
While soda may be your favorite choice of beverage, it is far from healthy and offers little in the way of weight loss. Regular soda is filled with sugar-filled calories that offer no health benefit. Sugar is known to pack on the pounds. Diet soda is loaded with chemicals that have been proven time and again to be harmful for the body. Both types bloat and can add to the waistline. If you are serious about losing a few pounds, it is time to begin choosing water before soda.
