How to lose weight? Below are 5 great ways to burn calories and achieve your weight loss goals before any big event!
Kick the craving
To lose weight you have to kick your craving habit. I’ll give in a little. Throughout the day I’ll eat “healthy” snack like grapes, carrots or apples. Then I’ll set aside a piece of something naughty to have, but that’s it. If I’ve eaten a large amount of good healthy food, then I won’t pig out on a bunch of junk food. I would have beaten the craving and stay on track with my weight loss goals.
Water is your friend!
Water is extremely important to weight loss. Water fills you up and keeps you hydrated. When the hunger pains kick in, you might think that you’re starving, but you’re really thirsty. I’m not saying replace food with water but drinking a large glass of water before your meal can prevent you from over eating. So keep a large water bottle with you throughout the day.
Pile on the healthy foods
Stock up on fresh fruits and vegetables. The day that you start your goal to lose weight your refrigerator should be completely free of all junk food. If you’re an emotional eater, consumer foods that will bring you energy not extra weight gain. So, when the chaos starts take a deep breath visualize your weight loss achievement. Grab anything healthy from your kitchen and deal with that obstacle without sabotaging your goal.
Move your Body!
Grab your sneakers and go for a walk or some type of physical activity. Exercise is great for the mind and the body. If you are really stress out take a kickboxing class or any type of high power aerobics to help clear your mind. The workout will help burn tons of calories and speed up your weight loss goal.
Write it down.
Losing weight is life changing. You will feel so many different emotions that you should write how you are feeling. You should chronicle each day as you get closer to your dream. You can always look back on that day and remember the journey in your own words. The journal will help track your progress and focus on your goal.
