Lose Weight - 5 Tips For Healthy Weight Loss

8/26 10:36:34

It doesn't have to be a struggle! Sure, there will be a sacrifice, but won't the results be worth it? I've put together my top 5 tips for healthy weight loss. Here we go:

1. Eat Sensibly

Sounds obvious right? I can't tell you how many people I've met over the years who want to lose weight, but continue to eat high-calorie junk food. Unfortunately we're conditioned through the media and advertising to eat food that may not necessarily be the best choice for us. Just watch your calorie intake and use your common sense when it comes to your dietary choices.

2. Drink Lots Of Water

You should drink at least 8-10 glasses of water a day. Water is probably the single most important component to losing weight and keeping it off. Studies show that a decrease in water intake causes fat deposits to increase, and an increase in water intake can actually reduce fat deposits. The kidneys do not function properly without enough water. Water also flushes waste from the body.

3. Choose Good Carbs

Don't buy into some diets that say you should eliminate carbohydrates. They provide the body with the fuel it needs for physical activity. I lost about 15 lbs simply by cutting out white rice, potatoes, white bread and pasta. In place of these, go with whole grains, vegetables, fruits and beans. If you're going to have bread, eat a healthy whole grain bread. It will help you lose weight and feel so much healthier.

4. Don't Skip Breakfast

It's true. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. We need the nutrition and fuel in the morning to help us function throughout the day. Also, if we skip breakfast, we're more likely to snack mid-morning. Breakfast provides our bodies with vital nutrients such as calcium and iron. If your excuse is that you don't have time for breakfast, make yourself a healthy nutritious protein shake.

5. Exercise

Do I even need to mention this one? After you bought the gym membership, how many times did you end up actually going? Maybe you're there on a regular basis and that's great! But if you aren't at least walking for half an hour every day, you are doing yourself and your body a great disservice. Commit to a regular exercise schedule and stick to it.

There are obviously more things you can do to lose weight and keep healthy, but these are some of my top recommendations. Here's to your health!
