Five easy resolutions to make you lean in 2005!
Yep, it is that time of year again! Time to moan and groan about weight we gained over holidays as we resolve to lose it all in New Year! If memories of failed New Year’s resolutions are haunting you, it is time you found right resolution for 2005.
The reason that most New Year’s Resolutions fail is that they are too extreme or time consuming. Who is really going to give up all sweets or stick to sweating in gym for hours each day? What you need this year is a New Year’s Resolution that is simple enough to become a part of your daily life, and will lead to long term weight loss. Read on for five simple yet effective New Year’s Resolutions for you to choose from.
Resolution #1: Drink a large glass of water before each meal. This simple action will save you mountains of calories in coming year! By filling your stomach with water right before you eat you reduce your chances of overeating during meal. Drinking more water is also healthy for all of your body functions, including converting body fat into usable energy.
Resolution #2: Wait 20 minutes before deciding on seconds. Do you remember last time you were uncomfortably full after a meal? Chances are that you were hungry and, rather than stopping when you were satisfied, you overate. In same way that your body tells you when you are hungry, it also has a way of telling you when you are full. The catch is that it takes about 20 minutes for your brain to get message from your stomach that you have eaten enough. What you eat during that 20 minutes is extra food that your body doesn’t need. Next time that you are in middle of a meal contemplating getting yourself seconds, allow 20 minutes to pass before you decided if you still need extra food. Chances are that your brain will get “full” message and you will pass on extra calories!
