5 Quick Tips for Weight Loss!

Here’s 5 Quick Tips for Weight Loss

1.) Don’t Skip Breakfast.Your body expects to be refueled a few times each day, so when you skip breakfast you may feel so hungry that when lunch time comes, you over-eat or maybe you choose foods that are not the healthiest choices.

2.) Stay Hydrated. We need to drink a lot of water to keep our bodies (and this includes our metabolism) working properly. We need about 6-8 eight-ounce glasses of fresh water each day. This will ensure that the 60-100 trillion cells in the body receive their daily-needed ration of water in order to maintain efficient digestion, metabolism and waste removal.

3.) Eat More! We’re talking three good snacks and three healthful meals. Skip the empty calories of chips and dip and substitute mixed nuts—especially almonds. This type of snack will satisfy your craving for something crunchy while helping to build muscle.

4.) Do Resistance Training. Lift Weights or use resistance bands. The muscles you build will not only improve your performance, they’ll stoke your metabolism so you burn calories long after your workout is over.

5.) Avoid Empty Calories. Pass on sodas, alcoholic beverages, cookies, cakes, candy, etc. Enjoy healthier alternatives most of the time – and when you do splurge – do so reasonably!
