Tips to Lose Weight Pt. 2
CareXpress Urgent Care has some more weight loss tips
Last week CareXpress Urgent Care talked about a couple of ways you can jumpstart your new year’s resolution to lose weight. Here are a few more.
Don’t Skip Meals: It can be tempting to skip meals when trying to lose weight, after all, losing weight means eating less right? Well, skipping meals can actually make it harder to lose weight. When you don’t eat regularly, 3 meals a day plus snacks, your body lowers your metabolism. A lower metabolism means you're burning fewer calories. Which often cancels out the calories you save by not eating! Plus, no one likes going hungry! Remember, losing weight is about making small changes that you can maintain. Don’t cause yourself more stress than you need to.
Be Consistent: The best advice to losing weight it to be consistent. Maintaining a healthy weight is all about making healthy lifestyle changes and sticking to them. Again, the reason fad diets don’t work is because they’re not designed to last. Many are designed to get you to lose weight fast, not keep it off. Make changes you can stick to and stick to them!
Find Support: Sometimes we get by with a little help from our friends! If you find your willpower starting to wane, it’s ok to seek the aid of a friend or loved one. Letting someone hold you accountable for your weight goals can also help when your willpower begins to fade. Working with a dietician or personal trainer can also help if you start having trouble maintaining or losing weight. There’s no shame in accepting help when trying to reach your goals, the people close to you want to help you stay healthy as well!
