4 Useful Tips For Your Weight Loss Journey

4 Useful Tips For Your Weight Loss JourneyEmbarking on a weight loss journey and making a commitment to yourself and your health is an amazing change to make in your life. You’re one step closer to a happier, healthier and more confident version of yourself!

However, if you’ve ever tried to lose weight before, you’ll know that it can be mentally and physically challenging. You have to make sure that you’re still nourishing your body and mind throughout the process and setbacks can make you feel like you’re failing. But this process doesn’t have to be negative or frustrating! Follow these helpful tips to make your weight loss a little more manageable.

Find Go-To Recipes

Eating healthily and managing your calories is easy when you’re motivated and have plenty of time on your hands. It’s the days when you come home exhausted, drained and short on time that things start to slip from your fingers. One solution is healthy meal kit delivery service like a Blue Apron, HelloFresh or Sunbasket.

For times like these, it’s helpful to have quick and easy, healthy, low-calorie recipes you can follow or even pre-made frozen meals ready to be reheated. If you’re following a ketogenic diet, look for lazy keto recipes to follow on days when you don’t feel like cooking, and if you’re simply cutting back your calories, make sure you have a few easy low-cal options up your sleeve.

Eat Mindfully

When you have a weight loss goal, it’s important to be mindful of what you put on your plate. If your mindset is right and you have a positive relationship with food, it could be a good idea to track your calorie intake. This will help you keep a close eye on whether or not you’re on track.

However, if you have a restrictive mindset or any history of an eating disorder, calorie tracking could be damaging to your mental health. Instead, be mindful by focusing on filling your plate with loads of veggies and protein and following a healthy, balanced diet by limiting processed foods.

Walk More

4 Useful Tips For Your Weight Loss JourneyWe all know that we need to exercise to be healthy, but there’s a lot of science that backs just walking as a starting point. To keep things simple, walking more will increase your daily energy output exponentially and make your weight loss easier, more manageable and more consistent.

Try to set yourself a daily step goal and track it on a fitness watch if you have one. Walking is a low-effort kind of workout that will help you make sure you’re burning enough calories each day. Plus, an evening walk is a great mental boost.

Stay Consistent

Trying and struggling to lose weight can be stressful and frustrating, and putting extra strain on yourself to be perfect every day will only make it worse.

Instead of striving for perfection (which nobody can achieve) strive for consistency. Try to hit your step goal, calorie goal, water goal and any other goals you have MOST of the time instead of ALL of the time. Doing a consistently good job is going to give you much better results than doing a PERFECT job only two days of the week.
