This is the biggest question, and the most important thing when losing weight. Many people try these low-calorie diets, but cannot keep up the lifestyle and slip back into old ways. Truth is, you need to find a maintainable diet that is within your caloric limit. For example, if your caloric limit is 2000 calories, you should be eating 1500, giving you a -500 calorie deficit. Remember your limit and stick to it. Use this awesome calculator to find your caloric needs.
It may be hard, but with the warmer days and the sun, it becomes a lot easier. Getting your workout done in the morning allows you to remain more focused and have more energy during the day. This increases your mood and you don’t have the idea of a workout looming after a long hard day at work. Wake up early and get it done.
When it comes to losing weight for spring, the most important part is what you eat. If you do not prep meals, you are most likely to eat garbage foods. Spend Sunday nights prepping 5 healthy meals. This will not only help you lose weight, but also save you a ton of money that you would normally waste on eating out. For great healthy recipes, check out this awesome blog.
People snack for two reasons, they are bored, or they are bored. There is not a real reason to snack between meals unless you are performing hard manual labour. However, getting out of the rut of snacking is hard. To help you with that, substitute your chips and candy with a healthy, very low calorie alternative. Some things that work great are, mini peppers, celery, grapes, raisins etc. No junk food.
It’s not all bad when it comes to losing weight, remember to have cheat days and that alcohol is the most common enemy to weight loss. Need another way to better yourself? Look into decluttering that home with self storage!
