5 Top Weight Loss tips

Recommended Posts

  1. Automate your eating by planning your meals ahead of time. That way you're less likely to make an unhealthy last-minute food choice.
  2. Oats are your friends! Eating a cup of oatmeal in the morning will prevent you from gorging in the afternoon.
  3. Foods with healthy fats such as olives, salmon and walnuts help you feel satisfied.
  4. Skipping meals can cause your body to go into a fat-storing starvation mode, making it harder to burn calories.
  5. Got nuts with nuts. Eating a handful of nuts will help you stay full. Try soaking them in water for a different texture.

Fruit smoothies in the morning tend to fill me up and give me something sweet so I'm not as likely to snack.

Protein keeps you full. Eat protein at EVERY MEAL.

 

Limit the carbs and sweets.

 

I like to "eat" rather than "drink". Example: Eat an orange rather than drink orange juice.

 

Be careful with processed "snack" foods - high fat and doesn't fill you up anyway.

 

Drink plenty of water, not sugar type drinks .

Eating a good breakfast,with protein is a start to a good day. Drinking lots of water and having good healthy snacks that don't have empty calories helps.

These are great suggestions. For me, I would want to add to eat more fruits and vegetables. I agree though about eating these rather than drinking them.

I would like to add one more thing - Water. Drinking enough water keeps you hydrated so that the body can function properly.

I guess the best way to lose weight is by having a healthy diet. I used to work out it does help in maintaining my current weight but it won't work if I will eat whatever I want even if it is unhealthy.
