The tried-and-true habits that have helped you lose weight the right way.
I have figured it out... eating at night is Bad bad bad. I have decided to not eat anything past 5 p.m., I can drink water or if I must have something a small piece of fruit or veggie, but no fat, no processed sugar no carbs.
When preparing lunch or dinner I now prepare two non-starchy veggies--like cauliflower & broccoli as well as my protein and carb. This not only adds to my nutrition and fiber but is more filling and prevents over-eating on more fattening foods.
It is no secret - water and walking.
Chewing gum after a meal or snack gives your mouth a minty taste that will make other food taste funny. Chewing gum also burns a couple of calories.
When dining out as I often do, have the waitress bring a carryout contain when she brings your food. Before you start eating put half of your meal in the container to eat later. You will be surprised how this will help you control your potions.
Dying for a Baked Potato without all the fating trimming?
Try topping your potato with fresh salsa, what a healthy, tasty alternative
I put chocolate milk in my coffee every morning. It is only 40 calories, but tastes rich and helps start my morning off on a good foot. I don't feel the deprivation of "die"ting because I am truly "living" with my morning treat!
I have learned to pack my snacks and take em with me. In the morning I will make a few small 100cal aprox snacks and throw em in my bag. Then while I am at work, instead of running to the machine when I get a bit peckish, I can reach in my bag and get something healthy.
Cardio is always the best way to start your journey in weight loss by cardio I mean walking, jogging or even biking regular or stationary and as you become more comfortable then start focusing on lifting weights
I've read it takes 20 minutes for your stomach to know you have eaten. So it is recommended you eat slowly. But sometimes I'm still hungry after I've eaten my planned meal slowly. But here's a secret. Often if I just wait, usually 20 more minutes, but sometimes up to an hour, the hunger goes away.
