New Year means new goals for many. Having indulged in food and booze during the last holiday season, it is normal for a lot of individuals to include weight loss in their long lists of goals. While this initiative can be beneficial not only for one’s health, it has to be done carefully. After all, even a simple mistake can lead to serious health risks.
If you are among those who want to lose weight this new year, here are some tips on how you can do it in a healthy way:
6. Don’t forget about breakfast.
Breakfast is considered as the most important meal of the day for a reason, as it provides you with enough energy for the entire day. In fact, skipping breakfast may mess with your body. You may end up feeling hungrier during the latter part of the day, urging you to eat bigger meals and therefore risking yourself of gaining weight.
5. Eat light for dinner.
They were right when they said that one should eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a queen, and dinner like a pauper. A study entitled “Timing of food intake predicts weight loss effectiveness” by Garaulet et al. reveals that timing has a lot to do with the effectiveness of a diet program. The speed of digestion varies in a day and it helps to eat less at night, right when digestion slows down.
4. Drink more water.
Experts say that drinking water before a meal can make you feel fuller. Apart from that, water also helps with proper digestion, allowing your body to easily get rid of the waste materials that need to be expelled.
3. Eat more fruits and vegetables.
Help your body flush out the toxins out of your body with ample amount of fiber. Eat fruits and vegetable with high fiber content and prepare healthy juices using them. Explore different combinations, and add superfoods like Kale to take things a notch higher. Learn about preparing fresh and healthy juices as well as their health benefits through our juice making demos at Nurture Wellness Village.
Weight loss is not just about eating right. It also involves regular exercise through which you can burn more calories.
