You have embarked on this journey and truth is you welcome all the tips you can get to make your journey a successful ride.
Limit stress- you need to find ways to elevate your stress, whether it be mediate or exercise. Too much stress clouds our judgements to proper eating as well as stress releases a hormone, cortisol, that causes a person to gain weight.
Get enough sleep-every adult needs at least 7-8 hours of sleep every day.
Watch your dairy- dairy is very high in proteins and can cause an increase in insulin levels because of the amino acid composition. Limited dairy to 4 servings a day.
Exercise- this is very important as it aids in weight loss by increasing metabolism, it build muscle which burns fat and just improves you emotional well-being.
Water-make sure to get your water intake in per day. It is recommended that you drink 8-12 glasses of water a day.
Watch your nut intake-though they are low in carbs, eating more than one serving per day could result in a stall while trying to lose weight.
DO NOT SKIP MEALS- you may think you can lose weight faster if you cut down on your meals. When you skip meals and you go longer than 6 hours without eating your body goes into starvation mode and slows down your metabolism.
DO NOT SKIP BREAKFAST- no matter what time you wake up, when you arise you must eat within 30 minutes of doing so. Doing so gets your body’s motor running so you can burn more calories early in the day.
Record what you ingest-this helps you monitor what actually goes into your mouth, calories, carbs, proteins and fats.
Don’t trust the scale-weighing yourself is a way to go, however many times as we exercise we gin weight due to developing muscle mass. Take measurements when you begin, measure your neck, chest, waist, hips, ankle and wrist if you like.
