As lovely as it would be to wave a magic wand and have your excess weight disappear, it is not how you can achieve a slimmer look. The only way to do it is to eat healthily and exercise more. Several systems can help you do this without feeling hungry and dissatisfied.
If you start one of them today, you will lose weight at a steady and safe rate. Be realistic and determined to reap the benefits of fitness and wellness.
Eliminate Snacks and Desserts
Snacking between meals and adding a dessert after you have eaten an entrée is not good. These extra calories are counterproductive to any weight loss plan. It is possible to lose weight by stopping the urge to snack and cutting out sweets and puddings.
If you eat a healthy breakfast at home in the mornings, even if you have to wake up a little earlier to do it, you will not feel like snacking until afternoon comes around. Make sure to have a low-cal beverage at about 10 a.m. to keep you hydrated. Eat a healthy packed lunch and stay hydrated in the afternoon. Thirst can often be interpreted as hunger.
When you get home in the evening, try to eat before the sun goes down. The body stores calories that are not burned off as fat. Some dramatic weight loss has been reported from healthy eaters who never ate after sunset and went to the gym after dinner.
Meal Delivery Diet Plans
There is a reason why meal delivery diet plans have become so popular in the last few years. It’s because they work. First of all, they require a commitment to the program because the best savings are had when you buy at minimum a month of meals. Secondly, the meals and snacks they provide are tasty and satisfying.
If you are thinking about joining the large number of people who eat the healthy balanced meals provided by meal delivery systems such as Nutrisystem, DadQuarter’s has a nice breakdown of how you can go about ordering and which plan to choose.
Eat Healthy During the Week and Cheat Over Weekends
This method may seem like a case of having your cake and eating it too, but when you eat healthy all week, you really can eat cake on the weekend. It is an excellent system for people who like to socialize and entertain on weekends. If you keep a strict watch on your food intake from Monday to Friday (never eating more than 1500 calories a day if you are a woman, 2000 if you are a man) you can afford to eat some snacks and desserts on the weekend.
You will still lose weight because the reduced calorie weekly intake will always be more than what you can consume over the weekend. Be realistic here and don’t swallow buckets of fried chicken or boxes of chocolates. The occasional dessert or candy bar won’t change the weight loss that you have experienced.
Start eating healthy, and you will see the weight disappear steadily.
