Keep It Real for Real Results
Do you desperately desire to lose weight in 2017? Perhaps, in your zeal to get fit, you’ve researched dozens of diet plans. Faced with a mountain of contradictory, nutritional information, you’re confused. If you can relate to this scenario, you might not know the best way to move forward with your weight loss journey. To increase your odds of real results in 2017, keep it real with the following simple tips.
Avoid the Urge to Count Calories
If you’re dieting, you might feel compelled to count every calorie you put into your mouth. This popular practice is burdensome and unnecessary. To drop the pounds and keep them off for good, you simply need to eat real, healthy foods. By following this strategy, you can be less mindful of calorie counts and more aware of the delicious flavors of the foods you’re eating. When shopping for groceries, fill your cart with:
- Low-fat dairy products
- Lean meats
- Fresh fruits
- Fresh vegetables
- Whole grains
Experiment in the Kitchen
Restaurants often serve astronomical portions of calorie, fat, sugar, and sodium laden foods. To increase your odds of gaining a slimmer waistline, prepare more meals at home. Make cooking fun by experimenting with interesting, new recipes. Don’t be afraid to break some unwritten rules by thinking outside the box. For instance, think about preparing a vegetable omelet for dinner or a spinach salad topped with strawberries and walnuts for breakfast.
Don’t Use a Lack of Time as an Excuse
Avoid using a lack of time as an excuse to delay your weight loss goals again. Many delicious dishes can be prepared in mere minutes such as hard boiled eggs or chicken stir-fry. If you have a tendency of being bushed when you come home from work each night, consider placing a mouth-watering entrée in a slow-cooker before you head to the office.
The secret to successful and lasting weight loss isn’t rocket science. Consuming real, healthy foods is the key to a fitter figure and improved health. To learn how to revamp your diet with real foods, consider scheduling a free, initial meeting with a consultant at a Metabolic Research Center near you.
