Thanks for the query.
There’s no overnight fix when it comes to healthy weight loss
, but you can adjust your lifestyle to promote quick, natural weight loss for the benefit of your health and your appearance. Successful, long-term weight management
needs to focus on more than the food you eat and the pounds you lose. It needs to focus on your overall health. Reshape
your body and your lifestyle by adopting healthy habits and breaking unhealthy ones.
Replace all processed foods in your diet
with vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low-fat dairy, lean meats, eggs, legumes, nuts, seeds and seafood. Focus on the variety of whole, unprocessed foods you can eat instead of dwelling on the junk food you eliminated from your diet.
Eat smaller portions at every meal and avoid going back for seconds. Take a smaller scoop of rice, half of a piece of chicken instead of a whole piece and one less egg in your morning omelet, for example.
Make time for breakfast every morning. Eating breakfast helps prevent overeating
and is a habit of people who successfully lose weight.
Pack to-go meals instead of eating convenience foods when you’re not home. Store foods like chopped fruits and vegetables or cooked grains, legumes, eggs and meats in your refrigerator so you always have something to grab when you’re in a rush.
Exercise for 30 to 60 minutes at least three times per week to build muscle and burn more calories. Pilates, strength training, aerobics, swimming, dancing and yoga
or a sport like football are ideal choices. If you’re new to exercising, start with brisk walking and jogging.
Adopt physically demanding hobbies like bicycling, hiking, jogging, power walking to promote faster weight loss. If you don’t have time for new hobbies, increase your physical activity with things like walking the dog, playing with the kids or jogging instead of driving to a nearby store or taking the stairs instead of the elevator.
Weigh yourself weekly and record your weight. Adjust your diet and physical activity according to the progress you’re making.
