Since purchasing my FitBit a few months ago, I have lost 25 lbs. Whether or not you have one of these devices, you can use the following weight loss “hacks” to shed pounds and improve your overall health.
- Load up on nutrient dense foods at the beginning of the day. The goal with weight loss is to feel full for as long as possible while consuming as few calories as possible. Protein and fiber heavy foods will do the trick while keeping you nourished. Try purchasing egg whites separately in their own carton. This way you can make a healthy, high-protein and low calorie omelet without the cholesterol-laden egg yolk.
- Plan your exercise into your workday. It’s much easier to get to 10k steps if you gradually work at it throughout the day. Use your lunch to take a walk instead of sitting at your desk. Schedule stretch breaks into your day to keep your blood flowing.
- Drink a half ounce to an ounce of water for every pound you weigh every day. You need to be properly hydrated to metabolize fat. In my weight loss journey, I’ve found that I’ve lose more weight the weeks I didn’t forget to drink an adequate amount of water. In addition to aiding in flushing fat away, being hydrated enables all of your bodily systems to operate at their optimal level.
Thank you for your time. I hope these 3 weight loss hacks will get you on track to improving your health like they did for me!
