Use a reliable tool to keep an eye on your progress. Smartphone apps for food intake, exercising, walking and rest are available to keep track of your progress. It is important that you follow the indications that the app provides and make the necessary adjustments to be able to enjoy good results. Seeing your accomplishments in black and white can be a great motivating factor.
Get good rest and plenty of sleep. Lack of sleep drives you to eat to keep up your energy. Sometimes it’s difficult to know if you are hungry or just plain exhausted. Therefore being tired is one of the major problematic issues when we intend to lose weight. Lack of sleep also makes you lethargic, depressed, unmotivated, edgy and prone to fail at almost everything you attempt. Get at least eight hours of sound sleep, no matter how good that TV show is or that video game or that party, you need your sleep to succeed.
What Foods Do I Have To Give Up?
Cutting down on sugar and refined carbs is a good start. Complete sugars, or complete carbohydrates are best for you even though they can still affect your weight if you eat too much of them. The good news is that 60% of your daily nutrition should be complex carbohydrates, so get all the fruits and vegetables that you love and go to town on them. Avoid
- White bread
- Pizza dough
- White flour
- White rice
- Sweetened breakfast cereals.
Keep in mind that sugar is in 95% of all packaged food we buy so replacing refined carbs with their whole-grain counterparts and eliminating candy and desserts is only part of the solution Since your body gets all it needs from sugar naturally occurring in food, all this added sugar amounts to nothing but a lot of empty calories and unhealthy spikes in your blood glucose.
