Here are some FYI TIPS, you may find useful!
***WATER: WATER is VERY important! You should drink an extra 8oz, for every 20-25 pounds you want to lose on top of the regular amount of 8 glasses you should drink daily. If you are exercising you'll need to increase this!
***To lose weight more efficiently and effectively, stop eating 2-3 hours before bedtime. This allows your body to become a fat burning machine throughout the night, instead of trying to process what you've just eaten. That feeling in your belly (of hunger), is the body going into to fat burning mode, you want that! That is the key to the ignition so to speak! Also, you should eat breakfast, this also sort of jumpstart your body's' metabolism. You can also try: http://www.fitnessmagazine.com they've got all kinds of great exercises you can choose from and they even do demonstrations of them!
***COOL DOWN: Cooling down, having a cool down session after working out prevents blood pulling to occur, which cause you to be more sore. Walking around or stretching ~10-15 minutes should be sufficient! :-D
***FOR EXERCISES: Try 20-45mins (whatever you can do) daily, or as many as you can, (something is always better, than nothing at all!!) of some cardio of your choice. Maybe running/jogging, dancing, bike, etc. (yes, dancing can be great cardio- just throw on some favorite music and let it rip! Its fun and you control it! :-D Best time to exercises is the morning, first thing! When you do this you jumpstart your metabolism for the day. Just GET/BE/STAY ACTIVE this is really good and important for a healthy body!
***Make sure you have enough and proper protein in your diet! This is important! Chicken, seafood, meats you can get these as lean meats and make these as good choices in your meal plan.
***PLAN AHEAD: My husband and I plan our meal ahead of time. We discuss the day before what are plan for the next day is so we pretty much already know what the deal is and what it's going to be for the next day. We don't have to guess and wonder, we're already prepared. I can't tell you how wonderful this little sucker is, it helps sooo much!
Know what's on the menu for you tomorrow!
***Look for inch loss, which is a wonderful thing. Sometimes you lose in inches and not actual weight. Take your measurements and pay attention to how your clothes fit you! That is a really good indicator that something's happening!
***Strength training is also good! But, be careful and don't over do it. Too much can make you gain weight in bulk muscle; muscle weighs more that fat!
***Take a look at http://www.caloriesperhour.com
Go to the Activity Calculator, and you can find out according to your specific age, gender, height and weight, how many calories you burn doing all kinds of activities! It's cool & simple, I like the site! :-D
***It takes 3500 calories to gain a pound and a loss of/deficit of 3500 to lose a pound!*
***If you have a bad day or an off day, it's better to eat the bad foods as early in the day as possible, that way you have a lot longer time to burn it of than just a few hours at night before bed!! Also, eat you bigger meals earlier, in this same regard of burning it off!
Dieting may be harmful to your health.
Your body knows what your ideal weight should be. However, it can be overridden by wrong habits - like overeating when you're really not hungry.
When your body is at it's ideal weight, your body is not being overworked, and you will have confidence in yourself.
A healthy lifestyle will allow your body to reach it's ideal weight.
To help you accomplish this:
Drink lots of water.
Find something you like to do (other than eating) and do it often. Walking is a great way to "treat your body right". It's not dangerous to your joints and is effective and easy. Start out in small doses close to home.
When eating food that you crave, think of it being covered in worms and filthy slime and piles of hair. Visualize this image until you retch. Do this each time you are overcome with cravings and find yourself with food in your mouth.
Drink a glass of water before you eat.
Eat only WHEN YOU ARE HUNGRY!
Stop eating when your hunger is gone - NOT WHEN YOUR PLATE IS EMPTY!
You need not worry what others may think. Spend some "alone time" each day and "remember a good time from your past". Don't dwell on the bad things in your life. Something doesn't have to be BIG to be meaningful and fulfilling as a "good time" memory.
Consume honey before bed because consumption of honey may help to burn more fat during those early hours of sleep
if you re having trouble getting started make a small move such as starting an eating log or buying walking shoes you re three times more likely to follow through if you start with small gestures such as these
