Tips to starting your weight loss trek

You’ve decided to do something to get back to a healthy weight. You’ve shifted into 1st gear by making that choice and now you are ready for 2nd gear and to begin taking the unwanted pounds and inches off your HUMAN chassis. Some of  these you will have heard before, but when you put them all together, they can be powerful!
Shift into weight loss mode

  1. Begin keeping a journal of everything you eat AND drink! (hmmm sound familiar?) — Sometimes we don’t even realize how much we are taking in, or we find out our habits are starving our body and that is from where the problems stem.
  2. START drinking more water — ideally 1 ounce of water for every 2 pounds of weight. (# pounds/2 = how many ounces you should be drinking daily) — This allows us to begin eliminating toxins in our system and allows for faster fat burning.
  3. Cut back on your sugar intake — sodas, highly processed carbohydrates, white sugar.
  4. Increase your fiber content — more raw veggies, and use products with higher fiber content —LOOK at the labels.
  5. STOP all artificial sweeteners!
  6. Increase your activity — even if it’s just adding a short walk after dinner — Get moving!
  7. CONGRATULATE YOURSELF! You are doing something to make your life better and you are setting a great example for our youth!
