10 Great Ideas to Boost Your Weight Loss Efforts
Sometimes we need rules and guidelines to follow, it makes things easier for us. With that in mind, I hereby announce the 10 Commandments Of Weight Loss!
1. Lifestyle, Not a Diet
This is not a short term fix; it’s a way of life. Treat it as such and you will definitely see the results you want.
2. Get Organized
Structure your life and you’ll structure your eating. There are tons of meal plans out there that can help bring you more structure.
3. Eat Small
Portion control is crucial for losing weight. You’ll learn that it is not necessary to “clean your plate” every time. Pay attention to the portion sizes that your meal plan recommends.
4. Learn to Leave Food on Your Plate
This helps you take control of compulsive eating. Once you start feeling more in control of your impulses, the better you feel about yourself.
5. Never Feel Deprived
This only encourages binging. Try to eat small portions all day, so you feel full.
6. Make a Meal Out of It
Make a ceremony out of every meal, so that you really appreciate what you’ve eaten. It doesn’t take much. You can light candles, set the table, adopt a meal-preparing habit, whatever works for you.
7. Eat Slowly
That way, you’ll feel satisfied before you’ve eaten too much.
8. Enjoy Your Food
It’s one of life’s greatest pleasures, not a punishment. Appreciate the tastes, colors, textures of your food. Take the time to think about how much effort has gone into creating what’s on your plate. From the time it takes to grow your food, to the logistical process of how it gets to your plate. The fact is, what you eat is what gives your body the materials it needs to keep going. So give it great materials!
9. Move It!
Exercise is an essential part of losing weight. Plus it releases endorphins into your bloodstream and makes you feel great!
10. Get Enough Sleep
Who couldn’t be OK with this one? Structuring your sleeping patterns will not only make you more enjoyable to be around, it will regulate your metabolism.
