PAANO MAG-LOSE NG WEIGHT?

When you say methods of losing weight, one can never guarantee their effectiveness. This is the common problem of weight loss plans found all over the net. You should know that the methods and plans laid out for you would not guarantee results, but you can definitely do something about it to have better outcomes. It is best to know ways on how to lose weight instead of following a specific plan. Here are the top ways to lose weight.

Learn to Read Labels

To lose weight, it is essential to pay attention to food labels. Counting calories is impossible without this skill. You should know how to find a food’s caloric content and its serving size. Comparing labels among different foods and beverages is crucial for making the healthier choices required to lose weight.

Snack Smart

You can help prevent overeating and maintain blood sugar levels by eating something about every three hours. Getting too hungry will backfire on your efforts to eat healthy and practice portion control. Aim for a healthful, satisfying snack, such as an apple and some reduced-fat cheddar cheese. Eating more may seem counterintuitive, but smart snacking will help you lose weight.

Eat More Grains and Produce

Whole grains and fruits and veggies do more than provide nutrients that improve your health and reduce disease-risk; they can also help you lose weight. They’re naturally low in calories, so you can eat more of them and have less room in your diet for less-than-healthful foods. Plus, the fiber in whole-grain foods and produce will help you feel fuller longer (which helps you control portions and avoid overeating) and as a result, lose weight.

Eat Enough, Often Enough

One of the worst ways to lose weight? Meal skipping. Many people think skipping meals is a great way to cut calories, but in the end, they fail to lose weight. You’ll be more likely to overeat or even binge (when you finally do eat) if you do not eat regular meals. Plus your body may go into “starvation mode” if you don’t eat enough, causing you to maintain (or even gain) rather than lose weight.

Drink Plenty of Water

Water helps you lose weight in several ways: If you tend to have a problem with “water weight,” drinking more water can help alleviate bloating. Replacing high-cal drinks such as soda with water cuts hundreds of calories. You shouldn’t wait until you’re feeling thirsty to drink water; thirst can be mistaken for hunger, causing you to overeat. Proper hydration improves your sense of well-being, which will keep up your motivation to lose weight.

Get Moving

It is virtually impossible to lose weight and keep it off without exercising regularly. Start out today by taking a brisk walk or riding a bike. Work your way up to 30-40 minutes a day, most days a week, and you could reap health benefits and weight loss results in a matter of weeks. Plus, exercise boosts your metabolism, making it even easier to lose weight.

Write it Down

What’s the first thing I think anyone who wants to lose weight should do? Keep a food diary. All you have to do is jot down what, when, and how much you eat in a notebook. A food diary will give you a clear picture of your current eating habits so you can identify the changes you need to make to lose weight.

Practice Portion Control

Measuring food may seem like a drudgery, but it will prove invaluable in your efforts to lose weight. Start out by comparing a measured standard serving of foods to your typical helping. You may find you usually consume two or even three times the recommended serving. In time you will reprogram your brain to eyeball portion sizes, a key skill for losing weight.

So there! Let’s claim it: We will lose weight! Fighting! 💪😊

8 HEALTHY EATING TIPS

For good health, eat a balanced diet with a wide variety of foods. Be physically active and only eat as much as you need.

1. Base meals on starchy foods – bread, cereals, rice, potatoes, pasta… They’re the best fill-you-up foods and sources of energy. Choose wholegrain, whole meal or “high fiber” varieties.

2. Eat lots of fruit and veg. At least 5 portions. Good for vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants. Fresh, frozen, tinned, dried or 100% juice all count.

3. Eat more fish including a portion of oily fish each week. They’re an excellent source of protein and other nutrients. Oily fish are rich in omega-3 fatty acids – good for heart health.

4. Cut down on saturated fat and sugar. Eat only occasionally. Eat in small amounts. They’re high in calories but low in nutrients. Choose lower fat and lower sugar versions when you can.

5. Eat less salt – no more than 6g a day for adults. Throw away the salt cellar. Choose lower salt foods. Too much salt can raise your blood pressure.

6. Get active and try to be a healthy weight. Walking is good. If you eat more than your body needs, you’ll put on weight. Get at least 30 minutes exercise on at least 5 days of the week.

7. Drink plenty of water. Drink six to eight glasses of water and other fluids a day. Drink more when it’s hot and when you’re active.

8. Don’t skip breakfast. A good breakfast gives you energy, as well as vitamins and minerals. Wholegrain cereals or bread, with fruit, make a great start to the day.

MORE WEIGHT LOSS TIPS, MARS!

Losing weight not only improves your appearance and boosts your confidence level, it can and also keep various chronic diseases at bay. Weight loss is a long-term commitment and cannot be achieved without discipline and persistence. Here are a few suggestions to help you lose those extra pounds and maintain those changes as a way of life.

COUNT CALORIES

Calories are units of energy present in food, which your body burns to perform activities. Some foods have more calories than others. Based on the activities that you perform, you may not require all those extra calories. To lose weight, you must consume fewer calories than your body uses. This can be done by choosing the right foods, limiting the amount that you eat and increasing your activity level.

DRINK PLENTY OF WATER

You are advised to drink at least 8 glasses of water every day. Thirst can often be confused with hunger. Consuming more water has also been shown to increase metabolic rate and help you burn calories.

AVOID SKIPPING MEALS

You may be tempted to skip meals to reduce your calorie intake, but this is a bad idea. Skipping meals usually makes you more hungry and increases your tendency to binge later in the day to make up for it. Besides this, certain studies reveal that skipping meals may increase abdominal fat and the risk of developing diabetes.

Those following a busy schedule most often skip breakfast, but this is the most important meal of the day. Studies have found that those eating a healthy breakfast get more nutrients and vitamins, tend to weigh less, and are less likely to have cravings and eat healthier.

Your meals should be healthy and include a balanced diet of whole grains, fruits, vegetables and lean meat.

FIND THE RIGHT EXERCISE ROUTINE

To stay healthy, you are recommended to do 150 minutes of moderate exercise a week, and to lose weight, you would require more. If you have never exercised before, it is better to start slow and gradually increase the length and intensity of your workouts. You could divide it into 2-3 short sessions spread out over the day. Increase your activity until you are working out at least 3 days a week.

Your routine should include fat burning and muscle strengthening exercises such as walking, cycling, weight training and aerobics to improve cardiovascular fitness. Try to vary your routine to keep it interesting and stay motivated to keep you on the right path.

STAY ACTIVE

If following a strict exercise program is difficult or boring for you, an easy alternative is to increase your activity in other ways such as doing more chores, using the stairs more often, walking when you can, or taking up a hobby that involves movement or playing a sport. All these activities add up to improving your fitness levels and overall health.

Good luck and get that healthy, sexy, fit body, mga mars! Happy losing weight! 😉
