Quick Tips for Successful Weight Loss
A leaner body helps to make you faster, stronger and less prone to injury and fatigue. Whether you have 3 or 300lbs to lose here a few tips for losing a few pounds.
-Get to bed earlier. More sleep will help to cut down on sugar cravings.
-Make a plan and stick to it.
-Don’t eat late at night. (This goes with the first tip)
-Share what you are doing with your friends. You don’t have to take the journey alone.
-Register for an event — a race, a fitness convention, a wedding, a vacation.
-Be consistent. Work out at least 6 days/week.
-Strength train. Lifting weights and getting stronger will lead to better results faster and you will feel better.
- Do something different. Unlike what most magazines say, you probably will not walk off your extra weight. Buy a new workout video like RevAbs (more than just abs work) or P90X and invite friends to workout with you.
-Eat a clean diet. Better food is easier on the body.
-Sit down to eat (not at your desk, not in the car).
-Don’t do it alone. Enlist the help and participation of friends and family.
Living healthy is all about the choices we make. Feel empowered by your decisions and ask for help when you need it.
