If your scale needs a jump start to get moving down then you will find these 7 easy tips for weight loss just the thing you need.
You might be doing a lot of things right already, use these tips to bring everything together and get better results.
1. Keep a food journal.
This is a great way to get accountable and research shows it can double your weight loss.
2. Look for opportunities to move more.
If finding a half hour block to exercise is tough then commit to taking the stairs, walking around the parking lot or doing a set of deep knee bends when you are getting ready in the morning.
3. Shift your carbs out of the evening.
You might be sabotaging your weight loss every night by eating carbohydrates before bed. These food cause a spike in insulin which can prevent fat burning while you sleep.
4. Replace those carbs with a protein or veggie snack.
Snacks that are protein or vegetable based do not cause a strong rise in insulin and make better late night snacks.
5. Eat mindfully.
Mindless eating can account for hundreds of “unseen” calories. When you eat remove your distractions by turning off the TV and computer.
6. Don’t drink your calories.
Calories from drinks add little nutritional value, do not fill you up and pack on the pounds.
7. Eat a salad with lunch and dinner.
A simple side salad can fill you up, add fiber to your diet and keep your digestive system running smoothly.
