Go for a walk every day, 45 minutes or longer if you can. Make the walk enjoyable and exchange some friendly words to people. If you are feeling energetic go swimming, play tennis, join a yoga, pilates or a dance class. The key is to enjoy the exercise you do and do it regularly and consistently. Exercise also has other proven benefits including helping to elevate your mood and reduce stress.
Eat a low carbohydrate, high protein diet with vegetables
An energy restricted diet which consists of low carbohydrate foods and high protein foods is beneficial for weight loss as it increases the loss of body fat, improves our muscles’ ability to use energy, and makes us feel fuller for longer. Protein rich foods include lean meat, poultry, fish, eggs, nuts and seeds. Start the day off with a protein rich breakfast such as eggs and avocado. If you have a habit of eating out of boredom, try chewing sugar free gum. Eat crunchy vegetables as snacks. Cut up celery, carrots, peppers, broccoli or cauliflower and dip them in a light salad dressing or hummus. Take advantage of frozen vegetables. They cook quickly in the microwave when you’re in a hurry to fix dinner. Be sure to include garlic, ginger, chilli and spices in your meals as these foods have been shown to aid in weight loss.
Prepare your own food
When you eat at a restaurant, you have limited control over your portions. As a result, you often eat more than you intended to eat. Ordering from a restaurant menu doesn’t give you complete information about how your food is cooked or what ingredients are used. At home, you can substitute lower-calorie ingredients or make recipes over so that they still taste great while delivering healthier results.[
Adequate hydration is essential for weight loss. Our bodies require 35ml of water per kilo of body weight per day. If you weigh 70 kilos, that’s 2.5 litres per day. We often confuse thirst for hunger, so before you eat have a drink of water and see if that gets rid of your hunger. Include green tea in your daily routine as green tea speeds up the metabolism and can help reduce body fat.
Get enough sleep
Your body needs around 8 hours sleep per night. Adequate sleep will help with weight loss and helps you look and feel great. Sleep allows the body to repair and heal itself. It also triggers the release of melatonin, which helps maintain good skin and reduces inflammation in the body. If we are well rested we are less likely to compensate for a lack of energy with high calorie foods. Lack of sleep also increases your appetite, in particular for high fat and high carbohydrate foods.
Keep your liver healthy
Amongst its many duties, the liver also plays a key role in regulating your weight. A healthy liver will metabolise and remove excess dietary fat more efficiently. If your liver is burdened with waste materials then excess fat gets transported to other parts of the body for storage instead of being processed for energy.
