After the holiday season is over, follow these three simple weight loss tips to help you get back on track:
Never skip breakfast
Eating breakfast will help maintain your energy levels and avoid the hunger pangs that could lead you to eat those chocolate bars, potato chips and fizzy cola drinks. Eating 3 well balanced meals a day (including breakfast) at regular intervals with healthy snacks in between will help you to feel full and satisfied and avoid temptations. It will also help speed up your metabolism!
Eat foods that are high in fiber
Whole wheat bread, brown rice, whole wheat pasta and whole grain cereals are all high in fiber, as well as fresh and dried fruit, vegetables, peas, beans and lentils, and seeds and nuts. Foods that are high in fiber usually take longer to chew, so this will slow down your eating and help you enjoy your food more. High fiber food takes longer to digest so it stays longer in the stomach and will help to make you feel full up for longer.
Exercising regularly will help with your weight loss plan. It does not have to be anything too strenuous; something as simple as walking will help. Try leaving the car at home and taking the bus to work. Get off one stop before your normal bus stop and walk the extra distance. Take a walk during your lunch break. Walk up the stairs instead of taking the elevator. Maybe try some aerobic exercises, but be sure to warm up first, start off slowly and build up gradually.
