Stop Making Excuses: Tips on how to Lose Weight

STOP MÄKING EXCUSES: Tips On How To Lose Weight I decided to take an aerobics class once. I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for a half an hour. But by the time I got my tights on.... the class was over! Hi, l'd like to get some information on weight loss. MAKE A COMMITMENT TO YOUR HEALTH Sure thing. Are you currently working out or doing any physical activity? Losing weight and staying healthy is a lifestyle that takes dedication Well, an excellent way to start getting physical is to try walking for 45 minutes a day. While 30 minutes of daily walking is enough to prevent weight gain in most relatively sedentary people, exercise beyond 30 minutes results in weight and fat loss. WORK OUT Exercising along with a balanced diet will help you lose weight Well, you aren't going butt you want by sitting on the one you have all day. Did you know sitting or even standing for pro- longed parts of your day can lead to pains in the legs, knees and lower back, making it even more difficult to lose weight? Get moving and break up your workday by alternating between sitting and standing. Sorry, I don't exercise. I work at an office desk all day. If god wanted me to bend over and squat, he would have put cookies on the floor. AVOID SITTING OR STANDING FOR PROLONGED TIMES S 50% Sitting Back Pain 50% Standing Experts recommend a 50:50 sit-stand ratio I may not work out often, but I am on a seafood diet. Yeah, when I SEE FOOD, I eat it! Oh yeah? That's great. REMOVE JUNK FROM YOUR DIET If you cut one can of soda from your diet each day for a year, you could lose 10 Ibs Oh that's what you mean. Well, you might be surprised to hear that instead of eating just 3 meals a day to lose weight, studies recommend that eating 5 or 6 small meals or snacks per day can help boost your metabolism. EAT 5 OR 6 SMALL MEALS OR SNAKS A DAY No, no, no. You should snack on things like fresh fruit, yogurt, leafy greens, regional veggies, nuts or seeds. More eating? I like that. A balanced diet for me is an ice cream cone in each hand. Boost your metabolism by eating more smaller meals Of course not. There are many healthy So basically you want me on the cardiologist's diet: If it tastes good, spit it out? foods that are both nutritious and delicious. Purchase a healthy cookbook and create tasty meals. Make flavorful salads by skipping the standard iceberg and romaine lettuce and use arugula, baby spinach or shredded cabbage instead. PURCHASE A HEALTHY COOKBOOK Turn your healthy meals into delicious dishes you want to eat It's easier than you think. Simply carry a note pad with you and write down the foods you eat. Studies have found that people who maintai diaries wind up eating about 15% less food than those who don't. Another thing you can do to help manage your weight loss is to start a food diary. pod A diary? Who do I look like to you, Bridget Jones? START A FOOD DIARY Breakfast - Cereal Snack - Yogurt Lunch - Tuna Salad Keep track of all the foods you eat Snack- Nuts Dinner - All I heard was 15% less food. Are you kidding me? How would I do that? We eat far, far more today than our bodies need. Studies find that if SERVE YOURSELF LESS & YOU’LL EAT LESS you serve people more food, they'll eat more food, regardless of their hunger level. The con- verse is also true: Serve yourself less and you'll eat less. Serve More Serve Less Eat More Eat Less I think my problem is I eat when I get stressed, and we all know STRESSED spelled backwards is DESSERTS. Coincidence? I think not! FIND WAYS OTHER THAN EATING TO TAME STRESS Find ways other than eating to tame stress. For instance, you might make your family a photo album of special events instead of a rich dessert, or sign up for a stress-management course at the local hospital or take up an active hobby, like softball.
