Not long ago I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and my doctor told me to lose weight or my life would be shortened by many years. Being overweight most of my life I knew it was time to get serious.
I know how hard weight loss is and I want to share a few things with you I found along way that helped me lose 70lbs in eleven months. I believe these weight loss tips can help you too, no matter what diet you chose to follow.
Tip #1 Eat Smaller Meals More Often
Eat breakfast, and then a couple of hours later have a snack. Eat lunch then a couple of hours later then have another snack. In another couple of hours you can eat dinner. Just make your choices are sensible. I buy small peeled carrots in bag that are ready to eat so I can eat healthy snacks.
Most diet plans leave you feeling deprived, but all of that chewing makes you feel more satisfied. Eating every few hours also raises your metabolic rate which means your body will burn fat and stop storing fat. Once you get used to this small change, you'll discover this weight loss tip really works.
Tip #2 Eat Lots Of Vegetables
Eat raw vegetables and salads because they are low in calories, low in carbohydrates and are loaded with vitamins. But if you cover your salad or vegetables with dressing, you may as well forget about losing weight. Always get your salad dressing on side because dressing is high in fat.
A good weight loss tip I discovered is dip your fork in dressing before you fork salad. This gives you a small taste but keeps amount of salad dressing you eat to a minimum.
Tip #3 Drink Plenty Of Water
I fought this tip at first because it was just too hard to believe. But I changed my mind when I saw benefits. Drinking water not only makes you less hungry but you will notice a big difference in way you feel.
I drank a lot of diet sodas all of my life, but changing to water gave me a cleaner feeling and it actually helped me shed pounds once I switched. Any doctor will tell you to drink more water because it's good for your overall health. If you change your mind about drinking more water, it could be one tip that makes a big difference in your weight loss.
