Weight Loss Tips To Make This The Year Of Your Weight Loss Dreams

Make the goal to feel better, have more energy and to have a better quality of life. Making a commitment to increase your overall health will ensure that you reach your weight loss goals and successfully keep the weight off as well.

Drink plenty of water with every meal

Substituting water for sugary drinks and sodas will help you to cut back on calories. Switching to water can save you countless calories per day. Over the course of a year, just one less soda a day can add up to 30 pounds lost without much sacrifice at all. Drinking water with every meal will also make you feel full quicker. That can cut back on your overall calorie intake.

Choose interval training

The mistake that most weight loss enthusiasts make is only to do one type of exercise. Hitting the gym and doing the same thing every time will not do the trick for weight loss. Interval training burns the most calories in the least amount of time. It also helps to build lean muscle mass that will speed up your metabolism. Making the heart work harder, quick bursts of energy contribute to burning calories quicker than a steady burn.

Keep a journal of what you eat

Often when we count calories, we fail to add things like the Frappuccino we had at breakfast. All those little things can add up to some hefty calorie counts. To lose weight, you have to be honest with yourself and gain control over what you eat and how active you really are. Keeping a journal of how many calories you take in minus how many you expend will not only keep you on track, it will keep you honest.

Try an app

There are apps for everything, including weight loss. Some cool apps can help you to track your movements and your calorie intake. Since weight loss is nothing more than a simple equation of calories in versus calories out, an app calculating the two will spell out the process for you.

Take the long route

Instead of spending time riding around the parking lot in your car looking for a space, park at the end of it and walk. Just those few extra steps, over the course of a week, can help you to burn some serious calories. Take the stairs, walk to get lunch, and always look for the path less traveled. If you think you don’t have time to exercise, you do. It is about seeing the potential of burning calories all day long, not in a concentrated time frame like the gym.

It isn’t in the big things that change will be made, it is in the small lifestyle changes that add up to calories expended. Make a commitment this year not to lose weight, but to be a better and healthier you by changing incrementally instead of always looking for the “big bang”.
