Deciding to cut out carbs and sugar are all good in theory but the reality is you won’t stick with the drastic changes for more than a few weeks. The best option is to tweak some changes in your lifestyle and eating habits, to provide the best outcome in the long haul.
1+ Don’t drink liquids while you eat.
Too much liquid during meals slows digestion by diluting our digestive juices leaving you with a bloated feeling. Instead, drink a glass of water 30 minutes before you eat. By filling your stomach with water first, you’ll also feel fuller so you won’t need as much food.
4+ Invest in a crock pot
With winter time upon us, they are the best investments. Bung in low fat meats, and vegetables to make awesome stews, soups and casseroles that can cook while you are at work or sleeping at night.
5+ Get active
For at least 20 minutes a day…I know you have heard this before, but LET IT SINK IN…20 mins…that is nothing….pull out a mat and do some abs, butt lifts, a round of tricep dips with pushups and squats/lunges. Something is better than nothing and you might even find yourself willing to go longer.
A change begins with awareness, so try one of these, it might just make a difference…..
