Well, guys and girls, following are 7 ways to naturally lose the weight, the you too can implement if you wish to tone up for the forthcoming summer and even beyond that.
By now we should be nicely shaping up and slimming down. It is at this time that we must lose weight quickly and not become demoralized with our weight loss attempt. So what is weight loss about I ask you?
Well, firstly we need to keep on going with the resolutions we made, for it is around now they began to become either a chore or a distant memory.
I know that some of you people will be really looking forward, for one main reason, to look good! For this, you are going to need the best breakfast foods and some healthy foods for lunch in order to help to eat your way to a slimmer you!
It is a never ending cycle, when Christmas comes around, we over indulge only to spend the rest of the year attempting to lose weight naturally again. As I have just said around and around we go. It is a common fact that one never gets to naturally lose the weight permanently this way, EVER.
Follow These 7 Ways To Naturally Lose The Weight
Tip Number 1 – Moderate
This is more common sense than anything else but for my tip number one, it is essential that you moderate (watch) your portion sizes.
This does not apply only to Christmas but is meant for any event or function yet to happen during the year. It is very easy to overload your plate with the variety of foods on offer but you must remember this next point!
Although some will taste great the large majority will be BAD FOR YOU AND YOUR WEIGHT and there is absolutely no chance of being able to naturally lose weight if you do munch them.You will only be able to do it with some exercise.
They are merely sugary and fatty foods so moderation really is key. Do not go at the food like you have not eaten for a week. Instead just eat a little of these bad foods and enjoy their flavor without having to deal with any consequences.
By the time you have read this post you will know exactly what not to do during this period. Or next year, or at any event/function throughout the coming year to naturally lose the weight.
When it comes to a function/event there is always a tendency to over eat. Whether this is down to the distraction of conversation with friends or family, Or you may have already got the hunger because you have not eaten properly that day due to the consumption of alcohol.
Drinking copious amounts of alcohol too will certainly be no good for any weight loss diet you may have in mind or already be attempting.
When you say “help me to lose weight“whatever the reason, you really must avoid over- indulgence. Not only will it allow yourself to feel so much better in the months to come but it will also be a lot better from a weight point of view if you do find one of the best diets to lose weight fast.
Do not serve yourself extra portions or say NO If they are ever offered to you. This is so easy to do it really is.
Tip Number 2 – Slow Your Alcohol Consumption Right Down
With it supposed to be a jolly and very happy function/event but the next issue that has to be addressed may leave some of you dear readers with an “As if” attitude.
But cutting down on your alcohol consumption really is absolutely VITAL to keeping your weight gain to a minimum and not letting it get out of control. Yes, you are right, I said cut down on your alcohol intake.
Would it not be great if alcohol had health benefits. It does not and it is very VERY calorific (full of calories) So obviously this is no good for any dietary plans you have made for yourself.
What makes matters yet worse still is that they are empty calories providing you with absolutely minimal vitamins and minerals.
Drinking a lot of alcohol is a sure-fire way to increase your weight. It is set in concrete so to proverbially say.
So, here is a question you really do need to be asking yourself, This is, how many calories in a pint of beer or lager? so, sorry guys out there, you really must watch the consumption of these drinks.
They have one joyful effect but that is so short lived whilst in comparison to the other effect of weight gain, it can take several months to shift.
You really need to prioritize between health/Weight and having a short-lived good time. I certainly know which one I would choose every time without question.
As with the food over-indulgence, STOP for a minute, you definitely do not have to get roaring drunk. It is a choice that you alone have so make your decision wisely. Yes, the wisest decision one can make is to refrain (hold back) from partaking in drinking anymore.
In all honestly when drunk we forget exactly how much we drank or even what foods were stuffed into our drunken bodies whilst under the influence so, again, it is a decision that should not be a hard one to make if you logically think about it.
HEALTH or WAIST –LINE. As the UK advert goes “Just say no” to more, easy.
I suppose you could always lay down a message of intent to yourself and instead of taking the preventative measure of making sure that you do not over-indulge in the first place.
You could always ask for or purchase for yourself some exercise equipment for the best home workouts to be there ready and waiting for you once the two main crazy days and finished and you are well into the new year which is/was where most weight loss campaigns begin/began.
Then simply locate one of the best diets to lose weight fast, one in which you like some of the food that you are still allowed to consume. This way it will not feel so much like you are dieting per say.
You could also do yourself a big favor and as I said previously, you can use this piece of apparatus, a rowing machine or one of the others at the bottom of this post as a means to rid yourself of that oh so stubborn fat.
Tip Number 3 – Keep A Journal On Everything You Do
My tip three may sound too simple and you may wonder what the point is,but, if you keep a journal of everything that you have eaten and EVERYTHING you have drank at the event/function, this well help you –
- Realize just what you’ve eaten and what time. I mean being honest were you really hungry when you scoffed those hot dogs or burgers?
- It will let you know how much you have drank. At a later date, you can total up the calories that you ingested.
- If you do it from the first moment you will be better equipped to deal with the mess you get in at the event/function which has just passed and kept a track of your intake in the forthcoming months.
- Remember a steady 2500 calories is all that is required if you are a man and only 2000 if you are a woman. Go over this and plus if your not at work or doing anything then you really are indeed crying out for weight gain. Something that will become far more apparent when your journal is accurately kept, for certain.
Tip 4 – When You Try To Naturally Lose The Weight, Team Up
If it is at all possible you should always try to team up with someone else as well. You can help each other through the ups and downs and help to motivate each other when one of you is struggling or tempted to quit.
It also happens to make the task of losing weight less of an ordeal and more of a kind of competition. So whilst your focus shifts towards not losing to your team mate you will also be losing your excess weight. A winner is it not?
Tip 5 – Eat Something Light Before Hand
Always eat something light before you go to/Have a party of some description as it will then make it far less likely that you will munch your way through lots of party food and nibbles which is obviously going to add to your weight dramatically
Tip 6 – Drink Plenty Of Water To Help You Naturally Lose The Weight
Drink plenty of water. This should be done every time you are going to/Have a dinner party as the water leaves less room for all of the food you would otherwise find yourself eating.
It also will dilute a lot of the alcohol so that it is passed. Fundamentally this means that your body will not store as much thus you will have escaped the dreaded weight gain.
Tip 7 – Say “Bah-Humbug To It All (Made Famous By Charles Dicken’s Scrooge)
You could always opt for tip number 7 and that is to say bah humbug to all of it (from Charles Dickens Scrooge) and have the worst event/function ever. I know which I would rather forfeit to ensure I still had an enjoyable time.
Realistically speaking these are my top 7 tips for staying healthy for the first six months during the months following this. I say realistically because they CAN ALL BE DONE.
It all just boils down to you and what kind of result you truly wish to come from it during this slow period. Even if you have never moderated your eating and drinking habits before it is never too late to start, and, at the end of the day you can still have a lot of fun, there is no doubt.
Except this time you will be less likely to do anything foolish on account of the alcohol and will also not look back at the event/function and wonder”why did I eat and drink so much?” only to have to spend the rest of the year trying to lose the weight that you have gained from, lets face it, being reckless.
Each year a good time is had by all and each year you find yourself in the same position. bigger, bloated and wondering as you asked yourself previously why you did it. What was it all for? This year it is so simple DON’T
You seriously need to do some long and hard thinking. Why then eat too much and ruin all of your good work. It does not make sense to me and most importantly it most probably makes no sense what so ever so you either. THINK before you DRINK and SIT TIGHT before you BITE.
Do not let this year go the same way as countless others. If you are really interested in learning more about weight loss then look at Web MD and this can really help you to do so.
Use them well and you will be fitter and slimmer by the time the next Christmas period comes around for sure! Remember you just need to burn off all those excess calories you have consumed. Come on, it is not rocket science.
Heavier or lighter, fatter or thinner. The decision is yours to make.
There can be but one reason you overindulge during this event/function. I hate to be harsh but you are either easily distracted or you simply do not care enough about your poor body.
The unit which has got to manage/Deal with all of the “Junk” and alcohol you over-supply it with.
Come on! Really? It is time to get a grip of your life. You can still enjoy all of the fun and festivities of the event/function without these self-destruct button being firmly pressed.
There are millions of people who every year end up having the time of their lives and yet they do not eat and/or drink too much. This will be your problem that only YOU can deal with. It calls for an evasive plan of action, you know this to be true so act upon it, please.
Just Imagine 14lbs Is 1 Stone
Just imagine if you will, the period ended and you went mad at your new fitness regime and manage to lose say 14 lbs (1 stone). Under normal circumstances and at any other time of year you would look and more importantly feel great about your weight loss right.
Well, how about this? Because of all of the weight that you have put on over the festive season and new year, whatever you lose, all of your hard work, will only get you returning to where you were before the past holiday began.
Can you honestly tell me that you want to keep it up and basically do double the work, and it will take double the time to lose that 14 lbs (1 stone) that you would have already lost so much quicker. No, I did not think so. I have some words for you friend. DO NOT OVER-INDULGE. Then there will be no problem to “fix”
