Losing weight is not easy. It gets even more difficult as you grow older. Your metabolism slows way down as you grow older. I discovered this when I started packing on the pounds after I turned 40. Realizing that my body did not burn fat as quickly as it used to, I decided it was time to do something about this. I am going to share with you the weight loss tips that I used to lose 30 pounds.
Tip one- Increase your water intake. You have heard over and over that you need to drink six to eight glasses of water per day. It's true, the more water you drink the better you feel and the more efficient your body becomes.
Tip two- Get moving. This was hard for me. Although I work in a job that requires a lot of walking, my body had adapted to that amount of activity. I had to start an exercise regimen. I discovered that my favorite thing to do was yoga. This really got me into shape in a hurry.
Tip Three- Eat more vegetables. I know how easy it is to load up on carbs and starches. But if you can replace some of these carbs with vegetables, you will see a difference.
Tip Four-Eat slower and stop when you feel satisfied. I know it was hard for me to slow down because I am always in a rush. But when I started eating slower and chewing my food more thoroughly, I found that I was eating less. I also stopped stuffing myself at every meal. When I started to feel satisfied, I stopped eating and moved away from the food.
Tip Five- Don't weight yourself every day. Once a week is enough. Successful weight loss is more than just physical, it is a mental process also. If you weigh yourself every day and don't see results, you will become discouraged and give up.
These five weight loss tips will help you get started on your weight loss journey. But you need a weight loss program that will work for you. The resources listed in the site below has a variety of weight loss programs. You will be able to find one that is suitable for you.
Don't give up! The weight will come off.
