People striving to lose some excess weight already know that it is not easy. Our body keeps on those pounds and we need both hard exercise and change of our diet if we want to achieve anything. However, there are some useful tips that could help anyone trying to get ready for the summer.
Eat More Fruits and Veggies
Increasing the amount of fruits and vegetables you eat is the easiest thing you can do and it will prove to be beneficial for weight loss. Simply, double the quantity of servings every day. If you are currently eating 2 servings per day – from now on eat 4 and if you happen to eat 5 servings of fruits and vegetables every day work your way to even 10 servings per day. Perhaps you will need several weeks to incorporate those increased amount fruits and vegetables into your menu, but be persistent. Choose organic if you can and pick the fruits and veggies rich in fibers.
Eat More Dried Nuts
Dried nuts contain plenty of lean proteins, so try to eat about 1oz of walnuts or almonds every day. You can eat half of that in the morning and other half in the afternoon, if you like. What you should avoid are fried nuts. Instead of these, always make sure to buy dry-roasted or natural nuts. You don’t have to worry these nuts will make you fat because scientists have proven that this amount of fat found in the nuts is actually beneficial for weight loss.
Avoid Liquid Calories and Fast Food
Fast food and liquid calories are not good for your health
or for your weight. Juices, sodas and sport drinks contain plenty of sugar and
they won’t help you lose excess weight. Limit the consumption of alcohol as
well, for this is also something filled with liquid calories. So, don’t drink
excessively while you are trying to lose some weight. Post workout drinks are only exception and you can and should take those after a strenuous exercise.
Food in fast food restaurants will always contain much more fat and salt than you need, so prepare your meals at home. Sometimes you will need some time to adjust to the situation you have to shop, chop and then cook your meal, but first time you try your own food you will realize the difference. Your body will be both healthier and thinner once you get rid of excess salt and fat from junk food.
Regular walks after big meals and consistent workouts are necessary if you want to be fit and healthy. Train consistently, choosing the time of the day which suit your needs. Only that, combined with your diet changes will help you lose excess weight.
