Seems like everybody wants to tell you what to do to lose your extra pounds. But are you aware some of these same people make mistakes while thinking they are doing great. This is one reason you should call WeightoWellness and let the professionals there set up a plan just for you.
You may have friends who tell you they lost ten or more pounds in a week. Maybe they did but a healthy amount of weight to lose in a week is only a pound or two. Those who lose weight too quickly do not keep the weight off. So remember it is a mistake to crash diet.
If you feel you must deprive yourself of all your favorite foods that is a mistake. Yes, you must learn to eat healthy but if you find yourself with a strong craving for a “treat” go ahead and enjoy a small portion of the food your are wanting so badly. Just plan ahead so you do not go overboard. We suggest you put a small serving of your “treat” food in a small bowl and eat just that amount. Portion control is important. Try to “feed your craving” on a day you will be working out.
Think of something you enjoy doing and reward yourself with that instead of with food. Using food as a reward is a hard habit to break. We reward our children for good behavior with candy, we reward our dogs with food when they do a trick we have been teaching them, and all too often we reward ourselves with food because we have lost a few pounds. Sounds a little silly when you think about it does it not?
It is important not to skip meals to save calories. This plan often backfires. The human body has a built in survival mechanism that conserves calories if we go long periods of time without food. This causes our metabolism to slow down. Skipping a meal only makes you hungrier and increases your temptation to eat everything in your reach. It is a good plan to eat healthy snacks between your meals.
If you are serious about shedding pounds be careful with what you drink. Often we fool ourselves into thinking because we are watching what we eat and exercising that we can drink whatever we want to. The truth is so many of the sports drinks on the market today are full of sugar. You can never go wrong with drinking water. In fact you need to drink at least eight glasses of water every day.
You feel good about the fact your are exercising but you must be sure you do not make the mistake of thinking you have burned more calories during your workout than you really have, This may be hard to figure. The staff at WeightoWellness can help you with this. If you think you have burned more calories than your really have you may tend to overeat and undo the good you have done.
