5 Things You Can Do Now To Start Losing Weight

 

So what are 5 Things You Can Do To Start Losing Weight

NOW


Sadly laying in your bunk in your B-Hut all day ain’t 1 of them (but feel free to do that too if you want to).

 

water

Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate!

I know you hear this a million times and you are probably sick of it, but the fact still remains. Your body needs water. If you are dieting it is important to drink water so your liver can effectively metabolize body fat. It’s also possible to argue that drinking water can help you lose weight because it makes you feel full and therefore less apt to eat. Bottom line. Just do it. Drink your water. Simply put, drinking water makes you more healthy. Less tendency for headaches, lubricates your muscles, regulates body temp, and flushes out the toxins to name just a few.

 


 

soda

Stop drinking soda. Including diet soda!

It’s a proven fact that folks who drink soda (even diet soda) have larger waistlines. I gave up drinking pop over 17 years ago when my first daughter was born. I just didn’t want to “parent” not allowing my children this stuff cause I knew it wasn’t good for you. Beyond weight gain, soda causes a ton of additional health issues as well including:
1.It spikes insulin, which causes the body to store body fat. Additionally, the large HFCS content causes the body to store even more body fat. Every single soda you gulp down literally makes you fatter.
2. Drinking soda often will repeatedly spike insulin levels, cause insulin resistance (when insulin no longer functions the way it should), and eventually lead to Type-II Diabetes.
3. It cause cavities, tooth decay, and poor oral health.
4. Soda creates weak bones. The phosphorus in soda saps calcium from bones, making them more frail and prone to injury.

Eat your breakfast soldier!

People skip breakfast thinking they’re cutting calories, but by mid-morning and chow time that person is starving. Breakfast skippers replace calories during the day with mindless nibbling, bingeing at lunch and dinner. They set themselves up for failure. You should eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a queen and dinner like a pauper. Plus your body has basically went into “dormant mode” during sleep. If you have slept for a good 6-8 hrs you probably have not eaten either. Your body needs that surge of nutrition to get things going again including your metabolism.

Get plenty of shut eye.

Sleep should be  a huge part of your healthy lifestyle, right up there with nutritious eating and exercising. Sleeping fewer than six hours a night is linked to energy imbalance and potential weight gain.  Studies have shown that those who do not get enough sleep feel hungrier, and crave higher-fat, higher-calorie foods. Also your body needs to recover from a hard days work. So be sure you get enough sleep 7 to 8 hours each night.

 Exercise, Exercise, Exercise!

No, I’m not talking donning your chem gear to MOPP4. I’m talking doing something physical everyday that makes you sweat. Start off small like some pushups everyday before hitting the shower. Hit the treadmill for about 20 minutes a few times a week. Start a habit and make it something you don’t dread doing everyday. If it is something you somewhat enjoy then you will more likely keep doing it instead of quitting. I recommend mixing it up with High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). You can get some serious results in a shorter amount of time with this type of exercise instead of jumping on treadmill for 30 minutes. Fact is your body gets used to cardio/treadmill and you can run all day and get no results cause your body is adapted.

 


 

Do these simple things and I guarantee you you will get results. Another helpful tool is to tell everyone, I mean “EVERYONE” what you are doing. You will be surprised how people will keep you accountable to your goal.

Accountability is key to all successes in life.

    more on this issue, it may not be a taboo matter but usually folks don’t speak about these subjects.

    To the next! All the best!!

  • I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s
    equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a
    few months of hard work due to no data backup.

    Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?

    more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and
    everything. But just imagine if you added some great photos or video clips to give your

  • You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
