Tips For Weight Lose

Not sure where to start when it comes to weight lose?  

I guess the first step is to decide it's time.  Are you fed up with being overweight or are you happy plodding along as you are?  

Are you ready to make a change and make lasting changes that reshape you, your day to day existence, your health and your long term wellbeing?

Here Are My Tips For Weight Lose

1) Move More - turn off the TV etc and move more than you do now.

2) Eat More Clean Food and Less Dirty Food - fill your plate with lean meat and vegetables, one serve is sufficient, snack on fruit and veg, ditch processed and pre made foods and start making your own 'convenience' meals.

3) Treats, deserts, chocolates, alcohol, high fat - high sugar foods are occasional foods; that's, you eat them occasionally, i.e. maybe once a week you eat ONE serve of this type of food; not one a day or as many as you like once day per week.  

4) Plan Meals, shop to support a healthy diet, ditch the 'crap' from your fridge and cupboards.  If you can't ditch the crap food, then it's likely that you're not truly ready to make a change to your eating habits.  Your fridge should be filled with fresh fruits, vegetables, meat, eggs, fish and your cupboard filled with whole grains, seeds, beans and herbs.

5) Schedule structured exercise, get a personal trainer, join a fitness group, do some sort of structured exercise (on top of 1. Move More) at least 3 to 4 times per week and make sure you give 100% effort. You want to walk away from the session feeling knackered.

6) Don't Give Up, everyday counts.  Remind yourself why you are want to lose weight by setting small short term goals.  Stick your goals on the fridge and stay focused on your end goal.  

Here are some tips for losing weight healthily by Eat For Health:  

To lose weight that stays off we need to make small changes that turn back the clock. We need to limit discretionary foods, down size our portions, and find ways to be more active in our everyday lives.

To lose weight, we need to eat and drink fewer kilojoules that we use. Choosing foods from the Australian Dietary Guidelines will help us choose foods that provide the most nutrients, without the extra kilojoules. For example eating more coloured vegetables and salad will keep us feeling fuller for fewer kilojoules. In fact making half our meals coloured vegetables or salad and having smaller portions of the other foods, we can reduce the kilojoules by up to half.

There recommended number of serves can be used to plan meals and snacks for weight loss. Following the serves from the Five Food Groups and avoiding discretionary foods will help most people lose weight while staying healthy. Younger men, people who are taller than average or more active may find they need to include the ‘additional serves’.

Planning is the secret to successful weight loss. By thinking ahead about meals and snacks we can spread the number of serves from the five foods groups over interesting meals and snacks and avoid unplanned eating of extra serves or discretionary foods.
