6 Food Tricks That Set Back Your Weight-Loss Goal
How To Maintain A Healthy Diet For The Super Busy
As we draw close to the end of the year, it seems as if we have little time for anything anymore. Christmas music is on the radio, New Year’s Eve holiday party planning has began, and it seems we never get time to break for a proper meal. We all know that having a healthy diet is essential to achieving your weight loss goals, but it seems the challenge to get or make time to maintain the proper diet and nutrition is unyielding.
Live In Fitness is here to help. As taught in our diet and nutrition behavior classes, there are a fews things you can do to keep yourself healthy and achieving your weight-loss goals. It isn’t anything fancy, but it does take decisive action and consistency. Just a few changes will have a tremendous impact on your energy and metabolism and keep you on track in reaching and exceeding your weight loss goals.
1. Never Skip A Meal – Especially Breakfast
I know that the kids must be to school by the bell at 8:05am. You may have even forgot to take the dog out for a walk. But skipping breakfast is a no no. Skipping breakfast is linked to increase weight gain, health risk and it will make you cranky a lot faster. Even if you have to eat something small or pre-packed like a granola bar, at least take something to eat to your desk in the morning to keep your metabolism going.
I know it is hard to get to the grocery store these days and do the whole meal prepping thing. Meal prepping in and of itself sometimes feels very intimidating, but it is necessary. Make time to hit the market in the evening or on the weekend. You could even research having food delivered. The better prepared you are the greater the likelihood that you will eat.
- Don’t Eat At Your Desk
I know that it is tempting, but focus eating is mandatory in weight loss. When you don’t eat where you work, you eat less, slower, and the change of scenery can do wonders to clear your head. Also eating away from work and with others make you conscience of your eating habits. Lastly eating away from your desk will also benefit your social and networking opportunities as well, as it gets you away from yourself and around other great people.
- Start Chugging Down Water.
Water is essential to keeping you hydrated, keeping headaches down, and even taking away certain hunger and cravings pangs. If you can’t stand the taste, maybe add some fruit or vegetables to serve as a natural sweetener.
- Choose Your Restaurants Wisely.
Eating out makes it so easy to cheat and even with the trend of healthy alternatives, many healthy food options are still chalked with secret sugars, fats, oils, and salts. Plan wisely. Check out apps and cruise websites before you go out, and if you are in the moment always go grilled with veggies.
- Don’t Shop When You Are Hungry
Sometimes the grocery store can be harder than a restaurant with so many tempting options to choose from. Stay around the perimeter of the store and make it a priority to shop at a time that you are are not rushed and calm so that you can make wise decisions that aren’t fast, cheap, or easy.
- Slow Down On The Liquor
Liquor is a silent killer for more reasons than the obvious. Liquor puts on unnecessary calories that will kill even the best workout plan. Tempting to splurge during happy hour? Studies show that the average drinks contains 700 calories. You must be mindful of the liquor and wine consumption, and if you are dining out plan accordingly.
If you focus on planning ahead, concentrating on meal selection and really taking care of your mind and body, you will find yourself more productive throughout the day. You want your energy to be spent in the gym and not on doctors visits. To learn more about how you can have the proper diet, weight loss and lifestyle contact Live In Fitness.
