The way to a healthier life is to plan on making better choices. It can be more enjoyable and less stressful when you set realistic goals and have the proper tools to achieve them.
These tools will help you to turn your ideas into behaviors that will lead you to your goals.
One simple rule you can follow is to always keep it convenient, Why? Because all too often we try to unexpectedly drop our calories on a whim and by the time we realize it we’ve eaten an extra 500 calories that day. Then we feel guilty, we skip another workout and head for the couch. The result is that week after week we’re putting on more weight, getting more frustrated and exchanging older clothes for bigger sizes.
With the new year approaching the perfect way to lose weight is to make it easier and make it fun.
Improve quality and you will get more satisfaction. The first step is to improve the food quality of your workouts. That means moving between short sets of contractions (not reps) instead of moving from one exercise to the next in a continuous, unhurried manner like a sumo wrestler might. It also means not spending your entire workout watching TV because you’re so interested in being involved in each exercise that you don’t even have time to eat a “healthy snack”.
Here’s a great tip that you might not have thought of yet. Studies have shown that people are much more likely to eat breakfast if they design it to be an exceptionally self-indulging meal and that it must contain a good measure of complex carbohydrates. To visualize the eggs, but do so with a grain of wheat, not a monolithic cheesy burger, and add age-old-food- Values.
You can do many more things to enhance the quality of your training than eating breakfast is. But the next time you consume a large meal, and it’s not something you have direct control over, try adding 1/3 or 1/2 inches to your belt.
Reach Your Goals
If your goal is to fit into your favorite jeans but your body fat is still continue to increase, the solution is to do more abdominal exercises, such as crunches, to burn more calories. You may also want to true to specific parts of your body that don’t look particularly defined and practice active stretching.
Most important, don’t give up. Most people will find a lost 30 pounds over the long term, no problem. Plan to change your habits for the long term, and use a sound counting diet and exercise program.
