Exercise is one of the pillars of good health. A healthy, active lifestyle has been proven to be the best in helping fight diseases, minimize chances of illnesses, and extending one’s life.
Due to this, we now see various workout regimens being developed and marketed. At this point, really, one cannot have a good excuse not to exercise and be active.
Today we’re going to feature five simple ways to help you lose the weight fast. It’s all a matter of consciously making a decision to put your fitness first. They are simple tips and small changes that over time will help you lose 10, 30, or even 50 pounds!
One problem we all encounter with weight loss is our inability to stick with our resolutions. We promise ourselves that we’ll start counting the calories and religiously do some walking exercises but after only a few days of trying to stick with it, we are once again back to eating 3 cupcakes for dessert and downing drinks at the bar like there is no tomorrow. Diet is over! We are once again back to our old habits.
There is a healthy way to lose the pounds and reset the brain slowly so we develop good habits that will lead to weight loss. Let’s borrow these slim-down secrets and transform our bodies today!
1.) Order smartly when you eat out. Instead of ordering the big bowl of pasta, look at the restaurant’s healthy offers like salads and grilled items. Making smart and healthy choices when ordering or eating out will help you lose the weight in no time.
2.) Skip the salt. This does not mean you stop using salt entirely, no meal will ever taste right without salt. Avoid salty snacks like chips and fries. Try not to stock up on these items in your cupboard. Remember, it’s easier to say “NO” when they’re out of reach. If you have to get up, get out, and walk to the store to get it, it will be easier for you to ignore your cravings.
3.) Purge your pantry. Take note of all the things you have in there. If you see food items that you usually tend to indulge in like cookies, ice cream, chips, and other snack items then take them out. Do not buy any more of these. Stock up on healthy grains and other options. Believe me, it’s these snack items that will make you gain all the pounds.
4.) Pile on the vegetables and fruits. If you are into pasta and rice and you switch up on your diet, chances are you don’t feel full during the first few weeks whenever you eat. Instead of grabbing for a cup of rice or pasta, devour a platter of mixed vegetables or salad. Snack on an apple, bite a banana. Munch a celery and pile on the arugula and green peppers. You will soon find that your cravings deteriorate over time and you won’t have any more room for chips and snacking.
5.) Run your butt off. This does not require you to spend hundreds for gym membership. You can do it in your block or neighborhood. A 20-minute run each day will help you lose up to 30 pounds in one month provided you also make smart eating choices. Start with simple changes and you’ll soon find your way to a fitter, healthier you.
Doing these small and gradual changes will help you in your quest to lose those unwanted pounds, live a healthier life, and be more energetic. Small changes are the key needed to have a more lasting fitness goal.
