No matter how hard you try, the weighing scale just doesn’t seem to reduce those double digits. It’s like the fat in your body is refusing to leave, just like a clingy bf/gf. The hardest part of losing weight is making the decision to do so and sticking with it. Surrounding yourself with temptations, obsessing over your journey and setting unrealistic goals are just some of the ways you can derail your efforts. Here is a to-do and not-to-do list which will certainly help you achieve your target body weight.
• Monitor your Food intake & Exercise regularly
Monitor both the food you eat and the amount of exercise you do. Although it may seem like an unnecessary task to keep track of every bite you take and every move you make, it is actually very beneficial. When you don’t keep track, you tend to consume more than you think and thus blow your diet. Any exercise burns calories. To promote weight loss, exercise at a moderate intensity for at least 30 to 60 minutes on most days of the week. Walking is a good form of exercise.
• Drink sufficient water
Research has shown that water consumption increases the rate at which people burn calories. Drinking water with your meal can help fill you up. Make sure you have around 8-12 glasses of water a day! The reason behind this is that if you stop having water then the kidney slows down which increases the work load of the liver. If the liver is working too hard then it starts to store fat instead of burning it. You get what that leads to right.
• Limit meat consumption
Meat is a major source of fat — keep portions under 6 ounces daily. Eat more servings of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains.
• Don’t skip meals
Skipping meals will cause the body to store more fat and burn less calories.During the day when you’re active, your body needs calories and nutrients. Eating regular meals, including a healthy breakfast, may reduce impulse snacking, meal size and calorie intake.
• Don’t starve yourself
If you’re on a diet that’s too strict, eventually you’ll go back to eating regular food. When you starve yourself, your body literally goes into survival mode. This means that it thinks it won’t be fed with energy for a while, so it holds on extra tight to sugars, fat, and all the stuff we want to lose. In addition, a slow metabolism causes the calories to digest differently in our bodies. Not good.
