As many of us already know all too well, weight loss is far from easy!
It really is simply too hard when you're still packing on the pounds with every passing second. You try as hard as you can, yet you just can't encourage yourself enough to exercise or eat healthier, even if it'll get you where you want to be. So what do you do about it? Well, any women that are tired of getting nowhere in their efforts, read on for 3 weight loss tips to shed those pounds!
The first tip is a very simple tip that many women miss. Don't just eliminate unhealthy foods - add healthy alternatives! Reducing the size of portions is obviously a huge help in weight loss, but that doesn't mean you should be limited when eating. It's a fact that when you eliminate something from your diet, you will still want more. When you add healthy alternatives to your diet, you'll see the cravings get easier!
Tip 2: Get moving, but don't consider it as exercise. Exercise has connotations of heavy weight lifting or hours on the treadmill. Exercise comes in many shapes and sizes. Going for a bike ride or taking a nice long walk, as an example, is exercise; any activity counts towards your goal. If the word 'exercise' turns you off, don't think of it like that. Think of it like one small step towards your ambition.
You don't have to completely remove some of the foods you love to eat from your diet. It's easier to eat smaller portions of your favourite food with healthier ingredients than to give it up completely. If you like bacon, for example, try to find leaner meat, and make yourself a BLT with brown bread in the morning! Ice cream? Try low-fat. Anything can be made at least a little healthier, and lower in fat.
These three tips mentioned above help make losing weight easier by making the nutrition element of weight loss much easier to deal with, and also helping you to enjoy your exercise more.
These are only a few of the thousands of tips that women can follow to lose weight. If you found losing the pounds hard before, you can now do it with confidence and new found motivation. We know that losing weight isn't easy, however it can be a lot less hard with these tips.
