Now Is the Best Time to Start Your Weight Loss Journey
There is never a better time to lose weight than right now. Shedding unwanted pounds is not just about looking better; it's also imperative to your health as being overweight increases your risk of heart problems, diabetes and a host of other health conditions.
If you're not sure where to start, consider the tips outlined below. They are tried and proven ways to not just lose weight but also keep it off.
Make a Plan
You need to make a detailed, realistic plan for how you will lose weight. If, for instance, you intend to exercise more in the coming year, decide which days you will exercise, where you will exercise and how long you will exercise. If you need to make changes in your diet, be specific regarding which foods you will and will not eat. For instance, you could commit to only buying 1% milk and low-fat yogurt or determine that you will stop drinking soda during the week.
Once you've made your plan, head to the supermarket and shop for healthy foods. Brown rice, brown bread and whole wheat flour are far healthier than white rice, white bread and white flour. Choose your favorite fruits to snack on during the day, buy plenty of vegetables and pick lean proteins such as chicken breast, turkey, fish and beans. Skip the soda and instead go for natural fruit juice or low-fat milk.
Even small changes can make a big difference over time and it will take time to reach your weight loss goals. Even so, you will see steady progress if you stick to your plan.
