Weight Loss Tips for People Who Must Lose 100 Pounds or More
1: Create an Environment for Success
Willpower is overrated when it comes to those certain foods that you just can't say "no" to. If it is in your house, you're going to eat it, period. To be successful in any nutrition program, you need to remove "reward" foods from your house, workplace and hiding spots. Don't worry, you can always have them on your reward day. But in order to succeed, you need to get them out of the house. Create an environment for success!
Movement of any kind will help you along your journey. Walking alone has been proven to be one of the most effective ways to optimize fat-burning. There should be no secret as to why the most incredible weight loss success stories have been accomplished through good nutrition and walking. Start with a couple of minutes per day and then work to add a couple extra minutes each week.
Try incorporating resistance bands or light weights. In a seated position, you can use these to work your arm and should muscles, which will burn fat. Anytime you build muscle, you are burning fat.
Water may be the easiest, yet most overlooked weight loss tool. While everyone knows drinking water is essential for survival, what they don't know is only slightly less important is consistently drinking the right amount of water. Water is essential to our wellness and to our weight-loss success. Did you know water consumption can even affect our metabolic rates? Because when we don't drink enough water our livers have to work overtime to help compensate for our water-deprived kidneys.
It's easy to forget to drink water, so try to carry around a gallon of water to yourself accountable for hydration. But carrying a quart or the smaller 16-ounce bottles is fine! To stay hydrated, I like to use the 10-gulp rule: When the water touches my lips, I have to take 10 gulps before I put it down. It is surprising at how quickly it fills you up!
