Tip #28: Inflammation and Weight Loss.

January 28, 2013

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

Inflammation of the body is caused as a result of some kind of stress experienced by the body. This stress can be related to diet, lifestyle, or environment.  Dr. A Habits of Health (a book I recommend to everyone who wants to lose weight) devoted a full chapter of this subject.

Study show that Vitamin C, a powerful vitamin, can help put out the fire of inflammation. It can also help with some cancers, and heart disease.

I also recommend fresh air and sun light. You only need about 10- to 20-minutes a day. If you have fair skin, put on some sunscreen and a hat.  Spending a few minutes in the sun light will promote Vitamin D, which also helps promote good health.

Be sure to drink plenty of water, and get your Vitamin C.

Tip #27: Friends and Family Weight Loss Results.

January 27, 2013

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

One of the best tips I can tell you is don’t do it alone.

If you’re goal is to lose weight, it is so much more fun, and you will stay on track so much better if you do it with a friend, a spouse, or one of your kids.

Instead of calling your girlfriend and going to a movie, where you’ll  smell all that popcorn, call her up and take her out for a walk, or go out and have a salad. Spend quality time with your friends and family.

Get a buddy. Lose weight with a friend or family member. They will help keep you on course and focused.

Tip #25: Grocery Store Shopping and Weight Loss.

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

If you have kids, you’re going totally get what I’m about to say. Don’t go to the grocery store hungry, and for goodness sakes, don’t take a bunch of hungry kids with you. If you do, you’ll load up on more items you didn’t plan for like: sugary, high carb, high fat, added junk in your cart.

Before you go to the grocery store, have a protein bar, granola bar, protein shake,  hard-boil a couple of eggs, get rid of the yolks – they’re high in fat, and just eat the  egg whites.

Eat healthier. Shop smarter and spend less, take a list with you.

Whatever you do… don’t go to the grocery store hungry.

Tip #24: Sleep and Weight Loss.

January 24, 2013

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

A bedtime routine and a good night sleep are critical to losing weight. 

If you’re trying to lose weight, you have to have a good night sleep. This is when the body repairs itself.

 

Even on the weekends, stick to a bedtime and a wakeup routine. If you find that on the weekends you’re dragging, and exhausted, the reality is you’re probably burnt the candle a little too late during the week. Be mindful, and get to bed at a reasonable time. You’ll think better the next day.  Your body will be happier, and you’ll shed those unwanted pounds a whole lot easier.

 Good night.

Tip #23: Eating Out – Save Calories and Lose Weight.

When you know you’re going to eat out, take your own salad dressing with you. If your goal is to lose weight, stay away from the salad dressing, especially the creamy ones; it’s just tons of extra calories. 

Instead take a healthy option with you. I like the small wishbone spritzers.  You can pop them in your purse.  Or use some olive oil with some balsamic or red wine vinegar.  Add a little salt and pepper. The other thing you can do is use a slice of lemon, a little salt and pepper.

Please stay away from the creamy house dressings. They are just loaded in calories that you don’t want.

Tip #22: Save Money and Calories.

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.

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.
