Don’t Wait to Lose Your Weight!
“The main key to losing weight is burning more calories than you consume.”
-What can I do to start losing weight?
· WORKOUT IN THE MORNING. Wake up 30-60 minutes earlier in order to workout. This is beneficial because your extra plans during the day will not overlap your workout time, you will already have it done. When you work out in the morning you continuously burn more calories after you work out. Also, if you wake up at that same time every day in order to workout, your “internal clock” in your body will get used to waking up at that time, and you will become an early bird (without the need of an alarm clock), you will wake up feeling alert and energized! Exercising in the morning increases your mental sharpness for to next 4 to 10 hours. You also feel great because you’ve done something good for yourself. Most of all, working out releases endorphins, which will have you starting your day off feeling good!
·GROCERY SHOP AROUND THE PERIMETER OF THE GROCERY STORE. You can get all the food your body needs (Fruits, vegetables, grains, dairy products, and meats) just by shopping the perimeter of the grocery store. Most of the foods in the aisles are unhealthy. Some of these foods are full of harmful chemicals such as artificial preservatives. Also, most of the foods in the aisles have higher calories.
· COUNT CALORIES. Grab a notebook and write down everything you eat and write the number of calories beside each food item. About 1800 calories is the number of calories a woman should take in every day.
· EAT SMALLER PORTIONS. If you’re ordering food from a fast food restaurant get all your food in a “small” size. If you’re eating in a restaurant eat half of your food and place the other half of your food in a “to go” box. You’ll cut your calorie consumption in half and have an extra meal for later!
