Managing Your Weight for Better Health

By Stephen R. Farris

Losing weight for better health can be challenging, especially with so many diet plans to choose from. Sometimes we simply have to take it upon ourselves to actually find out what works for us.

This means you need to think about changing up your eating habits, and exercise habits. In other words, you'll be making a lifestyle change that will actually be beneficial for your overall health and well-being.

All it takes is you, so here's a few tips to help get you underway.

Avoid the Shakes and Sodas

Shakes and sodas are usually jammed-packed with tons of sugar. Sure, these may give you a quick boost of energy, but once it begins to fade, you'll end up crashing hard. In other words, they may be more or a downer than a booster. This also includes the variety of energy drinks and shakes -- including coffee -- available that are usually found in any convenience store. The best way to keep hydrated and your energy levels sustainable is to drink water instead. 

Smarter Food Shopping

When it comes to eating healthier, consider shopping smarter. This can be difficult, since the first thing you see when entering your local grocery store are the numerous displays of chips, dips, cookies, and other unhealthy foods. You gotta dig deeper during your shopping trips and take your time. Read the labels to find out exactly what the ingredients are. Choose leaner cuts of meat such as chicken, turkey, and fish. Buy raw vegetables and fruits instead of the canned varieties. Avoid high-processed foods as much as possible.

Mind What You Are Eating

Sometimes, minding what we are eating can be tricky. There's no way around it, we all live in a fast-paced world these days. Usually, we're limited to a 30-minute lunch at work, and when we get off, we're in a rush to get home and the temptation to grab dinner from a restaurant or fast-food diner is more frequent. We rush through lunch and dinner. Do you even remember what you actually ate? So what can be done about it? You can start by slowing your eating down. Chew more slowly and taste each bite. This can lead to a fuller feeling without the guilt of having eaten too much. Take time to enjoy each meal, even if you're limited on time.
