Healthy Ways to Lose Weight
Taking the initiative to take control of your health is no easy feat. It's frustrating and after a couple of weeks, you give up. Dropping the weight may seem easy as first, but you still want to mindful of how you are shedding those pounds. What are the healthy ways to lose weight? Here are a few of our suggestions.
Change the Way You Eat
As the saying goes, "you are what you eat." In a sense, it seems counterproductive to have such an intense workout to only go and eat a burger with fries and milkshake for dinner. Not having a meal plan in place will keep you from reaching your end goal.
What are healthy foods to help lose weight? For starters, portions of fiber and protein are essential at every meal. Protein gives you the energy to keep going. It keeps you fueled. There are a variety of high quality, protein-based options including fish and poultry. With even more options on the market, tofu and soy products fall in this category as well. Fiber helps with your digestive health as well as help keep the belly fat away. It is commonly found in the forms of vegetables, grains. There are also options packed with both protein and fiber such as beans, nuts, and seeds.
Be mindful of the type of protein and fiber you ingest. For example, lunch meat is protein, but it's lower quality because it is processed. Processed foods often contain a lot of salt. The higher the salt levels, the greater the percentage of potentially developing high blood pressure among other health issues.
Losing weight doesn't mean you have to eliminate snacks. For those that love junk food, it's easy to curb those cravings with different alternatives. Instead of chips, choose something crunchy such as nuts or dried fruit. For all the chocolate lovers, try dark chocolate instead. It's all about changing your mindset and making smarter choices of when and when not to indulge.
SnackLess offers a variety of weight loss bars. They are non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free, low sodium, no preservatives or artificial ingredients, and have no sugar added. They're a great source of fiber made only from nuts, seeds, and our unique hoodia parviflora. The hoodia parviflora is an appetite suppressant that makes you feel fuller for longer. Each bar also contains medjool dates which gives each bar a rich caramel-like taste similar to that of a candy bar. See! It's all about finding alternatives. Enjoy any of our 4 flavors: cashew and cranberry, coconut and walnut, peanut, and hazelnut.
SnackLess also has chewing gum available in 3 flavors: strawberry, mint, and cinnamon. Similar to that of our weight loss bars it contains the natural appetite suppressant, hoodia parviflora. It's also sugar-free and has zero calories.
Similar to how you would swap your sugary, fatty snacks for healthier alternatives, you need to do the same with your drinks. Water is important, of course, but there are so many ways to add flavor without adding unnatural sugars. Add fruit, lemons/limes, cinnamon, ginger, cucumber, or mint. The goal is to limit the amount of "liquid sugar" you drink commonly found in the forms of soda, sports drinks and juices.
While your diet will help you lose weight, a balance of both a healthy diet and exercise will keep the weight off. Exercise does not mean running and signing up for a gym membership. You can do so much movement in your home or at the office. Make the most of the outdoors whether it's going for a run, walk, or even a bike ride. At-home workouts could be from a free video online, or a simple situp/ jumping jack/ squat routine. The point is to get active and all you need is to start with 15-20 minutes a day.
