A lot of people will find it difficult to lose weight. If you put the following tips to use, you can definitely start losing weight right now.
A workout buddy is a great tool to achieve your weight loss goal. Having a commitment to workout with someone else, will help you to avoid playing the “excuses dance” for why you won’t go that day. Knowing that someone else is counting on you to show up will help you take that step each day to head to the gym and work off the pounds.
I worked with a slim fellow once who told me he only ate twice a day. He had a huge breakfast, a moderate lunch and no dinner at all. This sounds impossible for most of us to follow, but the logic is sound. Ideally, to lose weight, you should eat an enormous breakfast, a middle-sized lunch and a very light dinner. This is because taking your calories early in the day, gives you the most time to burn them off. Whereas, if you start noshing after you get home from work and continue until bedtime, your body will have no chance during your sleeping hours to metabolize what you’ve eaten.
An easy way to cut calories from a meal or snack is to cut back on what you’re adding to it. A cheesy pizza is still a cheesy pizza with less cheese or low-fat cheese, and a decadent birthday cake is still a wonderful sweet snack when made with egg whites instead of full eggs and low fat margarine instead of butter, but the amount of calories in each of those can vary greatly.
Does anyone not like french fries? However, these little fries can sabotage your weight loss goals. However, it is possible to create “fries” that are good for you and won’t create havoc on your scales. Cut your potatoes into half inch pieces, toss with pepper, salt, and about one tablespoon of canola oil; bake in an oven for about 30 minutes at 400 degrees. Toss with rosemary, if you desire. Release with your spatula, turn it over, then bake for an additional 10 minutes. These delicious fries are lower in fat and calories and taste as good as deep fried potatoes. This recipe is taken from Laurel’s cookbook under the name “French Bakes”.
A great way to help you lose weight is to make a custom playlist for when you work out. Listening to music when you work out can be very beneficial. When you have your own custom playlist, you’ll even have more motivation and drive to have a killer workout.
One way to help yourself lose weight is to eat sugar. Actually, what I really mean is to avoid sugar substitutes. Fake sugar can cause real cravings for sweet things and too many of those can cause weight gain or just curb your weight loss. Some sugar substitutes can also have nasty side effects. So go ahead, eat your sugar, just do it in moderation.
Getting thin isn’t something that happens; it’s something you make happen. Some people have a difficult time finding enough motivation to stick to their program. By tailoring the tips and suggestions offered to fit your lifestyle and needs, you can develop a weight loss regimen that will have you dropping those extra pounds fast.
