The new year has arrived, and while many of us have been working hard to stick to our weight loss resolutions, there are some of us who may have fallen off track. But there’s no need to fret; if you’re looking for motivation or some new tips and tricks to stick to your resolution, you’ve come to the right place.
Carrying around excess weight can be uncomfortable and damaging to your health. Losing weight is about looking good, feeling good, and being confident in your own skin. In order to achieve this you will need to exercise and maintain a healthy diet. Doing so will lead to a boosted immune system, meaning you’ll get sick less often, have increased energy, get a better night’s sleep, and have improved blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
If you want to lose 10 pounds this year, it’s going to take much more than your daily cardio session. You’re going to have to adjust your eating habits. For instance, “preliminary research reveals that drinking water before a meal may help you lose weight,” says nutritionist Amy Gorin, owner of Amy Gorin Nutrition in Jersey City, New Jersey. “The water may help you feel fuller, ultimately helping you eat less during the meal.” Also make sure you are consuming more fiber-filled superfoods and healthy fats, avoid sugar at all costs, and refrain from drinking your calories.
