Tips For Dieting & Weight Loss

Here are four simple tips you can use that will help you lose weight:

1. Create A Healthy Lifestyle

Don’t just go on a diet. A Diet implies that you are making changes for a little while and then will go back to your routine that got you overweight in the first place.

Make the commitment to change your mindset about food. The irony is that if you live a healthy lifestyle, you will find that on the days you do splurge, you won’t feel so guilty or unhealthy because you will have trained your mind and body to be a fat burning machine.

So don’t go on a diet, create a healthy lifestyle instead.

2. Try Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting is when you have a shorter window for eating during each day. For example, you only eat from 12pm to 6pm and during that window you have three healthy meals.

When you go to sleep at night, your body turns into a fat burning machine. By not eating first thing in the morning, you continue to burn fat. Also, if your first meal is a high fat and moderate protein meal such as eggs and avocado, you will continue to burn more fat.

3. Throw Out Temptations

If you have any unhealthy foods in your house throw it all out. Do not leave anything in your home that can lead to temptation.

If you have friends who do not understand or support your journey, put your relationship with them on pause. Kindly tell them that you will reach out again when the time is right.

You are not strong enough (yet) to not give in to temptations so you need to remove them all for the time being. Once you are strong enough then you can go back to it.

4. Watch Transformational Stories

Seeing other people in your situation go through what you are (or will be) going through is very inspirational. Your mind will make the connection that “If they can do it, so can I”.

Seeing other people who may even be heavier than you will also motivate you because then your mind will think, “No excuses, if they can do it so can I because they are heavier than me”.
