Get Healthy and Lose Weight: Yes Please!

By Virginia Laird

Almost everyone, at some point in their life, reaches a point where some kind of weight loss is desired. Whether it be 5 pounds or 50 pounds, shedding unwanted weight can prove to be a struggle. There is plenty of research identifying a variety of healthy habits you can incorporate in your life to help lose weight while improving your health. A few of these tips include:

  • Consume plenty of water daily
  • Walk every evening
  • Follow a healthy diet

Consume Plenty of Water Daily

One of the key components of getting healthy is making sure to consume plenty of water. While there are many who prefer to choose a variety of other (tastier) beverages, most are littered with sugar and calories. Instead of consuming a variety of empty calories, it is advised by healthcare providers that you rely on water as your primary source of hydration. Research surrounding the amount of water you should drink indicates that drinking at least half of your body weight in ounces each day is best. Drinking plenty of water helps the body to feel more full while helping to curb the appetite. This can benefit your weight loss process while improving your overall wellness. 

Walk Every Evening

While there is much research encouraging those who want to shed a few pounds to hit the gym daily, it is not necessary. For those who prefer to skip the gym, taking a walk around your neighborhood can still benefit your weight loss efforts. Health and wellness experts advise that walking at least 20 minutes each evening can be enough to get your scale moving in the right direction. Start today making time to go for an evening walk. 

Follow a Healthy Diet

There are many reasons to follow a healthy diet. However, weight loss may be one of the leading causes. Choosing to consume a well-balanced diet can help you control your consumption of sweets, which can prove to hamper your journey to a slimmer life. For the most part, a healthy diet is loaded with fruits and veggies. Much of the time it includes lean proteins, which is generally chicken and fish. As you begin to change your diet, not only can you experience some quick weight loss, but you may also see your health begin to improve fairly fast too.

For those who are more than ready to get the weight loss journey underway, follow the advice of the professionals so that you can be successful and healthier in short order.
