Tip #22: Save Money and Calories.

January 22, 2013

30 tips in 30 days. Get better health, and see better results.

It’s a lot healthier to eat at home, when you prepare the meals. You’ll save money and calories.

When you order in a restaurant you may be getting more calories than you asked for. Cooks were taught that butter is flavor. You’ll need to make sure they don’t put a butter or oil finish on your food.

For most of us, too much butter is something we carry on our hips and tummy’s. 

Be careful when you order out.

Transform Yourself.

With 30-tips in 30-days it’s easy.  Lose 2- to 5-lbs in the first two weeks, and lose 1- to 2-lbs weekly thereafter. Results may vary.

Tip #21: Cravings and Hunger – Weight Loss Tips.

January 21, 2013

30 tips in 30 days. Get better health, and see better results.

It’s a daily battle for so many people to make healthy choices. Ask yourself: What would a healthy person do? Stop and think. Even then, good intentions can still get put aside like when a sudden craving hit.  What do you do?

 

Cravings that hit you out of the blue typically last 10- 15- or 20-minutes.

Many times, people confuse hunger and cravings for thirst or dehydration.  Keep water handy.

This can also be a sign you need better quality nutrition, and possibly some vitamins.

Have a plan.

  1. Make a to-do list so that when those cravings hit you can keep busy and get past those first 15- to 20-minutes.
  2. Keep a glass of water nearby.  
  3. Distract yourself from the cravings and 9 out of 10 times, you’ll succeed, and those cravings will go away.
  4.  If you’re still hungry or craving, try an apple. If an apple doesn’t sound good you may be bored, tired, angry, or lonely.
  5. Get some rest.
  6. Call a friend, or your weight loss health coach.

Transform Yourself.

With 30-tips in 30-days it’s easy.  Lose 2- to 5-lbs in the first two weeks, and lose 1- to 2-lbs weekly thereafter. Results may vary.

Tip #20: Heart Health – Going Meatless Once a Week.

January 20, 2013

30 tips in 30 days. Get better health, and see better results.

Have you thought about having a meatless meal, and maybe going a little vegetarian once a week with your family?  

I know if you’re listening to this in cattle country, or you’re a big poultry or fish eater, you’re going think, no, no, I need my protein.

Studies have shown that people who do a meatless meal have better cardiovascular health.

 

So you might want to think of sautéing some veggies in broth, and maybe adding something like tofu. That’s probably a stretch for a lot of you.  So consider a salad, and steamed vegetables.  

Try going meatless  once a week instead of that turkey club, or steak. Your system will be happier. You’ll maybe shed a few more pounds, and feel lighter on your feet the next day.

Transform Yourself.

With 30-tips in 30-days it’s easy.  Lose 2- to 5-lbs in the first two weeks, and lose 1- to 2-lbs weekly thereafter. Results may vary.

Tip #19: The 2-Tlb. Spoon Rule and 3-Tips for Weight Loss.

January 19, 2013

30 tips in 30 days. Get better health, and see better results.

I want talk about how we can trick our brains with better choices and feel completely satisfied.

  • Do you have to have beer and hot dog at a baseball game?
  • Do you order a large popcorn when you go to the movies, and keep it most of it to yourself?
  • Drink beer at a barbeque and eat heaps of potato salad?
  • How about a giant piece of cake at a wedding, baby shower, or a birthday party?

You can still go out, have fun, and gather with your friends, but you may need to rethink your choices if your goal is to lose weight and be healthier.

Try these 3-tips:

  1. Take a 100 calorie bag of popcorn to the movies.
  2. Get some light beer and take it with you to the BBQ.
  3. Instead of having a giant mondo size piece of cake how about just a bit or two?

Try my 2 tablespoon rule.

Take a bite, if you absolutely have to indulge in it.  Now chew… 5 or 6 chews, for at least 10 or so seconds, before you let it go down.

Have a sip of water.

Still want more. Okay – have another bite. Chew. 5 or 6 chews for at least 10 seconds.

Have a sip of water

Your taste buds by now are happy. Mentally you don’t feel deprived. More than likely you weren’t starving so you can stop. And the best part is you limited the calories to 2-Tablespoons.

If your goal is to be healthy and lose weight ask yourself:  What would a healthy person do?  Watch them and I bet you’ll see that they take 2 or 3 bites, and they’re done, and so can you.

Push away from whatever it is that’s calling your name, you’ll save calories, and you’ll really feel like you had a huge success and control over those guilty pleasures.

Transform Yourself.

With 30-tips in 30-days it’s easy.  Lose 2- to 5-lbs in the first two weeks, and lose 1- to 2-lbs weekly thereafter. Results may vary.

Tip #18: Weekend Rewards to Lose Weight.

January 18, 2013

30 tips in 30 days. Get better health, and see better results.

So many times, we fall into the trap that we’re good all week long, and now we want to reward ourselves with something. And boom – we splurge on the weekend. Whether it’s an adult beverage, or something chocolaty and indulgent… we take the plunge.

The problem with being good all week and then bad on the weekends is as-soon-as Monday hits, you feel guilty that you messed up all those great days. So what happens is is you’re in a vicious cycle.

Get out of your own bad habits of rewarding yourself Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday, with food. Because what you’re doing is you’re setting yourself up for long-term failure.

This weekend instead of indulging in food, do an activity. Grab your kids, grab your significant other, put the dog on a leash, and go for a walk.  Take the family for a fun day. What you really want is long-term success. Don’t let those few hours on the weekend mess up all your good work.

Transform Yourself.

With 30-tips in 30-days it’s easy.  Lose 2- to 5-lbs in the first two weeks, and lose 1- to 2-lbs weekly thereafter. Results may vary.

Tip #17: Step into a Healthier Life.

January 17, 2013

30 tips in 30 days. Get better health, and see better results.

With winter here, it’s so easy, even for me, to go home, put on my warm snuggly clothes, turn on the TV or computer, sit on the sofa, and call the dog.  I’m done for the night.

So instead of going home and putting on your snuggly clothes, throw on your workout clothes. Even though it’s cold outside, you can bundle up, get out, get some exercise, and move. Then come back in and snuggle with your dog or the one you love.

So get out there, and exercise before you start to settle down for the night.

Transform Yourself.

With 30-tips in 30-days it’s easy.  Lose 2- to 5-lbs in the first two weeks, and lose 1- to 2-lbs weekly thereafter. Results may vary.

30 tips in 30 days. Get better health, and see better results.

Did you know that vitamins can help you shed some weight? It’s true.

According to the British Journal of Nutrition, they studied some overweight women and found that if they added 13mg of calcium as a vitamin to their diet every day, they lost 13 more pounds in 15 weeks, than women who were taking a placebo.

The calcium helps you feel fuller, so you don’t overeat. So think about adding vitamins and some calcium to your daily diet regime.
