Part of the frustration of trying a new diet often is the chore of constantly monitoring our health and nutrition. The key to meeting weight loss goals is not only in the change of diet, but also in the commitment or will to stick to it.
Our lives revolve around food – it’s everywhere we look. As consumers, we are drawn in by ads that promote fast food for cost and convenience, and processed foods for quick food choices. One of the hardest things about our food addiction is that our bodies must have food and water!
Here are some tips that will help you lose weight as well as keep it off:
- Weight loss should not only be done in a healthy way, but also in a way that isn’t a drastic change in your diet and lifestyle.
- Be sure to stick to a healthy eating plan. Your body feels the most satisfied from foods that have a lot of fibre and low protein.
- Try to remove processed foods slowly from your diet, replacing them, one-by-one with healthy alternatives.
- Get rid of the unhealthy food items from your pantry and cupboards. Getting them out of the house and replacing them with healthy ones forces you to eat the healthier alternatives.
- Don’t expect to lose a lot of weight all at once. Set realistic goals for yourself.
- Remember to reward yourself (but not with food!) for the changes you are making on your way to better health.
