Diet and Exercise Tips 2

1. It’s no secret that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It keeps your appetite in check so you don’t overeat throughout the day and keeps you energized and focus through the difficult early morning hours. But not just any old breakfast will do; it must be healthy to make a difference. Lean protein mixed with some complex carbs is a great way to start the day. Some great protein sources could include foods like eggs or egg whites, lean ham, and low fat cheeses.

Whenever you can try to eat them in their natural state rather than opting for juices, which don't contain the fiber, or processed varieties which lose a lot of the nutritional value.

3. If you over indulge when you shouldn't have, don't beat yourself up about it and write off the rest of the day. Instead of saying to yourself, 'I'll start the diet again tomorrow', get back on track straight away. You can still eat healthily for the rest of the day and perhaps compensate by doing some extra exercise. Make sure you don't starve yourself to compensate either – this will only slow down your metabolism, which will cause you to store fat more easily!

4. When trying to lose weight measure your progress on an ongoing basis. Don’t just judge the scale to determine whether or not your efforts are successful. You should also go by the way your clothing fits you and you should measure yourself for cms lost.

5. If you are trying to lose weight, don’t forget, you can vary up to a few kgs or pounds of water weight each day. If you are weighing yourself daily, try to weigh yourself around the same time each day. If you feel discouraged by daily weigh ins, try weighing in weekly

6. Do you want to burn fat and lose weight as fast as possible? Interval training workouts can be great way to do it, especially if you can only devote limited amounts of time to exercise. It’s a great way to boost your metabolism and improve your body’s endurance levels due to the intense production of lactic acid during interval training while reducing the time needed to recover between workouts.

Interval training requires bursts of activity in between periods of rest. If you can imagine running, then walking, then running, then walking, you’re imagining interval training. Workouts can vary with a variety of activities and a great thing about interval training workouts is that it’s easy to mix things up, avoiding the plateau that so many people get with repetitive workout regimens.

7. Experiment with various interval training workouts to keep things interesting. Some options to try could include stair climbing, cycling, walking, boot camp style workouts, speed drills, and plyometric training. Varying your interval training workouts will not only increase your metabolism and help you burn fat while building endurance but it will keep things interesting as well.

8. Just getting rid of junk food alone, while hard, can be one of the great healthy ways to lose weight. A large portion of the population dines on fast food several times a week. This results in health problems and weight gain. Eating cleaner with less junk and fewer processed foods can quickly add up to weight loss and improvements in multiple areas of your health and wellness.

9. There are a number of jump start diets that can help you get going. But if you use them as a springboard with the plan to use healthy ways to lose weight, you’ll have a better chance of success. You can’t live on grapefruit for two weeks. You shouldn’t take laxatives for weight loss. You won’t be healthy, energetic, nor happy if you live on low fat cereal alone. Choose healthy ways to lose weight so that you can sustain those methods for the long term. There are doable healthy weight loss plans that may limit junk and sweets but that won’t totally deprive you. Deprivation diets and starvation diets might help you lose weight fast but that weight will creep back and people often gain more than they lost because their body rebels.

10. If you don't eat breakfast, you slow down your metabolism and send the body into "hoard mode," thinking it's starving because you're going a long period of time frequently 8 to 10 hours or more, without food.

11. To keep help with weight loss dinner should actually be your lightest meal. Some experts recommend you don't anything after 8 p.m., or any later than 3 to 4 hours before bedtime. This helps your body process and burn the food when you're aware and moving around and burning more calories per hour.

12. Dropping your calorie intake below 1,000 calories a day will signal to your body that you are in starvation mode, and will slow down your metabolism.

13. At least two to three times a week, you should add weight training or progressive resistance exercise that builds muscle. Muscle burns more calories than fat, and the more muscle you have, the more calories you burn, even at rest!

14. If you are trying to follow a calorie controlled diet make sure you know your portion sizes. The majority of people under estimate the amount of calories they are eating and over estimate the amount of calories they are burning during their workouts. If you are just a couple of hundred calories out (the equivalent of 2 large apples) you can decrease your weight loss or stop it altogether. Even if u have been calorie counting for a long time, go back to actually weighing your food every now and then so that your eyes don't deceive you!
