Top Weight Loss Tips Everyone Needs to Know
Let’s face it: Knowing the best way to lose weight can be difficult, especially when there’s information coming at you from every angle.
If you’re struggling to rid yourself of those pesky pounds, then these five dietician-approved weight loss tips are for you:
- Tip 1: Don’t let hunger stop you from staying on track
If your stomach is rumbling with your new diet and eating regime, then it’s best to swap processed carbs—like white bread, muffins, or sugary breakfast desserts—with high-protein options, such as eggs, Greek yogurt, granola, or a mix of berries and chia seeds. In doing so, you’ll find that you’ll stay fuller for longer.
- Tip 2: Don’t eat a carbohydrate unless there’s fiber attached to it
- Tip 3: Focus on healthy behaviors instead of your weight
When you focus only on your weight, it’s easy to get burnt out. Shift your priorities instead to watching portions, exercising frequently, and making healthy food choices. Replace a goal—like losing 2 pounds a week—with specific mini-goals. These mini-goals can be eating 1 cup of veggies at dinner, walking for 20-30 minutes each day, and keeping a daily food journal. If you’re disappointed with your weight progress at the end of the week, reflect on how well you stuck to each of your goals.
- Tip 4: Make plants the foundation of your diet
- Tip 5: Plan tomorrow’s meals today
Planning ahead stops the panic that occurs when you’re starving by 6 p.m. and end up reaching for those not-so-healthy dinner options. When you sit down for dinner tonight, plan what you will eat tomorrow. It especially helps to plan at a time when you are not hungry, and in planning a day ahead, you’ll have extra time to prepare!
