I would like to share with you 7 health habits that make you, but also keep you slim! Making behaviour changes is the real key to permanent weight loss, but just getting started in the first place is the only step you have to worry about for now… so if you want to look nice for more than just a season you have come to the right place 🙂
Drink Water Daily- That simple drink up! All dieters and healthy people in general who replace sweetened drinks with water have been shown to lose more weight. Also staying hydrated helps keep you fuller for longer and not craving food. If water is too plain for you to drink, try adding some lemon or lime and if too sour use cucumber slices to give it some flavour.
Eat Your Breakfast- Start every day with a balanced breakfast that combines high fibre and protein to help you boost your metabolism the right way, stabilize your blood sugar, control your hunger pains and boost your energy levels.
Eat Nuts- (If allergic to nuts please skip) Tree nuts such as Almonds are full of healthy fats, protein and fibre, making them the perfect snack to keep you going until your next meal. You don’t need to go crazy with it, a handful is more than enough.
Snack Attack- Waiting too long before meals can slow your metabolism, and increase your hunger, which typical means overeating. Aim to eat 4 small meals and 2 snacks throughout the day to keep your metabolism up and those cravings at bay.
Get Some Sleep- Lack of sleep leads to an increase in obesity and to be honest without this you are wasting your time. When you are tired you tend to crave those high fat sugary foods, so getting the correct sleep (which is 8 hours) has added benefits such as anti-ageing and disease prevention.
Keep Track- Get yourself a diary and start writing down all the foods you eat. Having this food journal will help you stay accountable and keep you on track. And if you lost or gained weight you can look back at what you had that day, week or month and know exactly what is working and what is not.
Chill Out– Relax! Stress increases cholesterol levels, which in turn leads to fat. So stop stressing or your just adding unwanted pounds in your life you could do without.
