It is tough to stick to healthy choices through the year, let alone when the holiday season is around the corner. Shedding those inches is not easy, but if you keep in mind some simple rules to stick by, weight loss will cease to be the intimidating challenge it seems to be. Here are a few simple tips for losing those pounds & keeping them at bay. And it does not involve starving yourself
1- Get Social: Check out online communities (on Facebook, Twitter, or other forums) that provide support and encouragement. Download apps that monitor weight loss and connect with others on the platform. One study showed that adults on a weight-watch who listened to weight-loss podcasts and used Twitter in tandem with a diet and physical activity monitoring app lost more weight than those who did not go social. Sharing progress and setbacks on social media can help you feel accountable for your goals. And of course, provide the much-needed encouragement on not-so-good days.
2- Keep A Food Journal: Keeping a track of what you’ve eaten in a day keeps you accountable and aids in weight loss. Monitor your food intake and log into your food diary every day. In fact, people who stick to food diaries are more likely to lose weight than those who don’t. Recording each bite helps you be more aware of the food you eat, plus when and how often you eat them.
7- Switch to smaller size plates: Plate sizes have increased over the past millennium. When it’s time to sit down for dinner, choose a size-appropriate plate or bowl. Using a smaller plate (eight to 10 inches) instead of a tray-like plate (12 inches or more) can make us feel fuller with the same amount of food. How does that work? The brain may associate any white space on your plate with less food. Plus, smaller plates generally lead to smaller portions. Brilliant, huh??!
