I found these great "secrets" to fat loss. Like many of the tips and tricks that I give you on this blog, they are pretty simple in concept, but application can be a bit tricky.
Secret #4: Keep it Simple
While it is important to keep a variety of fruits and vegetables in your diet, your diet should be fairly simple. Create a repertoire of basic whole foods: fruits, vegetables, lean meats, whole grains, beans and nuts. When you cut down on your options it becomes easier to stick to your plan, making weight loss guaranteed.
Secret #5: Track Yourself
Your biggest fear is gaining back every solitary lost pound, but don't be afraid of your scale, and tape measure. Weigh and measure yourself at least once each week to monitor any gains. If the numbers begin to climb then reduce calories and increase your exercise.
Secret #6: Eat for the Right Reason
Emotional eating is one of the top reasons that people are overweight. It's very important that you view food as fuel, not as an answer to deeper emotional needs. When food becomes more than just fuel, the pounds quickly add up. If you want to keep your weight under control, you're going to have to eliminate emotional eating.
Secret #7: Forget All-Or-Nothing
No one is perfect – not even you! There will be days when you eat more calories than you should have. There will also be days when you miss a workout. Don't let small slip ups send you into a tailspin of all-or-nothing sabotage. Simply get back to your healthy lifestyle rather than letting yourself backslide into your old habits.
Don't try to tackle these all at once. Remember, make one simple change at a time. This way you will be able to stick to your goal(s) and build life long habits!
Every small change you make is one step closer to your ideal body, and lifestyle!
