Weight Loss Tips
Weight loss isn't as easy as some health guru's might have you believe. It takes a concerted effort on your part to make it happen. However there are a few tips that are very easy to implement and can have great benefits
- Calorie Counting: Start making mental notes of you daily intake of calories. Speak with your GP about what 'your' recommended daily intake is. Don't use averages or calculators online as they can be very misleading. Once you have this figure it is a fantastic way to monitor and adjust your intake. Knowledge is power, so use it to your advantage!
- Natural Sweetener: Each teaspoon of sugar contains approx 16 calories and 4 carbohydrates. SweetLeaf Stevia is a popular choice because it has zero calories, zero GI, zero carbohydrates and tastes great. You should be looking to include this in drinks, cooking, desserts and more (some stevia recipe ideas here!). When calorie counting you'll begin to notice how much sugar is in your daily diet and how much benefit there is in adopting a natural sweetener.
- Diet partner: Find a friend, collegue, partner that will hold you accountable. It is a great way to loose weight because you'll be constantly reminded. Just remember, encouragement goes both ways!
- Fit Picture: Get a picture of yourself when you were at your target weight and get it enlarged and put it at your desk or in a place you will be constantly reminded. If you don't have a photo, then photoshop one! It's important you give yourself a visual goal that way it makes it more realistic and achievable.
The benefits to a healthier life are endless. We encourage you to start today and live a healthier life tomorrow. Good luck!
