Have you been trying to lose weight Orlando? Possibly without much success? Here at Svelte, we’ll tell you that losing weight takes hard work and commitment, but that it can be enjoyable if you know what to do.
7 Weight Loss Tips that Actually Work for our Orlando patients:
Below are seven weight loss tips that actually work.
1. Focus on Adding Foods to Your Diet –
Yes, you read that right. Instead of being consumed with what you can’t eat, get excited about adding healthy foods to your diet and discovering new favorite foods.
2. Make Healthy Versions of Your Favorite Foods –
Don’t completely deprive yourself of your all-time favorite foods. Get creative and come up with healthier versions of them. Are you a pizza lover? Make homemade pizza with reduced-fat cheese and garnish with veggies.
3. Boost Your Fiber Intake –
By increasing the amount of fiber in your diet, you’ll stay satisfied longer and reduce cravings. Making whole wheat pasta and substituting whole wheat flour for white flour in pizza dough are two great ways to incorporate fiber into your diet.
4. Drink Plenty of Water –
If you get into the habit of drinking water before each meal, it will help prevent you from overeating by keeping you from reaching the point to where you feel famished and ready to eat everything in sight. Also, keep a bottle of water with you throughout the day and drink some whenever you have the urge to snack on something unhealthy. You’ll be surprised at how it fills you up.
5. Use Smaller Dishes –
Serving smaller portions of food on large plates can feel as though you’re being denied food and make you want to fill your plate. But when you put that same size portion on a smaller dish, it looks like it’s enough. Sound weird? Give it a try and you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how these distinct visual signals can change your perception of how much food is really enough.
6. Eat at the Table –
If you’re used to eating your meals in your car, standing at the kitchen counter, or in front of the TV, commit to eating at a table. When you don’t sit down and make eating a special time, you are rushed and distracted, both of which lead to mindless eating that derail your dieting efforts.
7. Walk Whenever Possible –
Taking a five minute walk when you don’t have time for a longer one, using the stairs instead of the elevator, and parking at the end of the lot are all smart ways to add in more exercise to your day. Every step counts toward burning extra calories and helping you achieve your weight loss goals.
