One default thing we all include in our New Year’s resolution is about starting a healthy lifestyle or to become more fit, so to speak. Don’t let this remain in a piece of paper, you actually got to act upon this one.
Here are some things you should really start doing if you really want to lose those extra pounds and achieve the most effective diet plans:
At some point, we all have to get out of the picture of broccoli as a monster under our bed. We all know they’re not the bad guys. The more colorful the food is, the healthier it is. And I’m talking about fruits and veggie colors, okay?
It’s spelled without an “s” for a reason. Give yourself a treat at least once or twice a week. You can’t deprive yourself from your guilty pleasures forever. This is also one way to tame your cravings, just don’t overdo it. Of course, it also means more calories to burn the next day.
It’s really not the size of the food that you eat, but the calorie content it has. The key to lose weight is to burn more calories than what you take. A spoonful of nutella contains more calories that a plate of salad.
Your discipline will start with what you purchase at the grocery. Don’t allow yourself to be tempted while passing by the junk food shelf. There are a lot of reasons why groceries are categorized in sections, and ignoring the bad sections is one of those. It also makes it easier for you to filter your list. Remember that labels will tell you everything you know, so make sure that you always read.
Water doesn’t look much, but it plays a major role in our health and fitness. Make it a habit to drink water when you wake up, before you eat, after you eat, and on any time of the day. We sometimes mistake thirst to hunger. You’ll be surprised with how water can change your eating habit.
Yes, it’s convenient and it’s delicious, but you have to face the reality that fast food is not for every day. Maybe you can treat yourself from time to time, but you have to appreciate home cooked and less processed food if you want a healthier body.
I can’t blame you if you find it hard to give up your sweet cravings. You can start this with a sugar detox. In this way, you can gradually get rid of your cravings. Don’t worry, you don’t have to breakup with your favorite comfort food, moderation is the key here. You still need sugar for energy anyway.
