Keeping the weight off after a diet is almost as difficult as losing it, in fact, after weight loss begins the real challenge of avoiding to get fat again. There are willpower and some changes in lifestyle that allow to deal with this challenge. Consider the following tips and some may surprise you.
1 – Decrease Consumption of Fats and Sugars
You must follow a varied diet low in fat. To do this, consider these foods;
- Skimmed milk
- Low-fat sausage, for example, turkey
- Cheese diet (defatted or fresh cheese)
- Cooking on the grill without fat (at most, a drizzle of olive oil)
- Say no to sauces, butter or cream cheese.
- Eat foods rich in fiber such as brown rice, beans, fruits and vegetables.
- Eat cuts of meat low in fat, for example, turkey, chicken, bison tenderloin, beef tenderloin).
- Add fish more but avoid its skin.
- Avoid processed foods.
- Ignore the bakery, the potato chips or soda.
2 – Adopt a Dog
It is one of the best ways to keep yourself fit and active. However, before taking this initiative, with benefits on physical and mental health, you must be sure you can take on this responsibility. If so, go ahead, go to the nearest dog shelter and share your life with these amazing animals that will not only help keep your weight but also give company and joy. As for the race, choose the one that best suits your personal or family situation or your activities.
3 – Consider Vegetarian Diet
Diets that restrict the consumption of meat (and all foods that contain or have derivatives) can help control low fat consumption. Now if you decide on this type of eating style, I recommend the advice of a nutritionist or dietitian who can guide you at least initially to avoid nutritional deficiencies. It is also convenient to attend classroom courses or online kitchen to learn different recipes to avoid following a monotonous and boring diet. If you do not want to dispense entirely of meat, you can opt for a flexitarian diet, which allows the occasional consumption of this food.
4 – Adopt Healthy Habits & Lifestyle
Ultimately, what matters is that you make changes in your lifestyle and adopt healthy habits in every aspect of life that force you to eat healthier, stay active and be positive. This way you already have won the battle against the excessive weight.
5 – Have a Light Dinner
Dinner must be light and 500 calories are sufficientfor dinner. What happens at night when you liedown on the bed to sleep, the process of digestion is much slower and there is energy expenditure. If you have heavy dinner, the metabolism will convert the consumed food into fat.
6 – Eating Breakfast is Vital!
Breakfast is needed to have energy and performing on the job. Eat complex carbohydrate as the insulin separation will be at a slower pace and you will feel satisfied for longer time.
Losing weight is worth it whenyou are suffering from excess weight. Losing off extra weight helps you to improve your self-esteem as well as general health and it makes good effects on other important health aspects as well.
