Best Tools For Weight Loss

There’s a lot (like a whole lot!) of diets, books, supplements, wraps, & teas out there in the world.

Do any of them work?

Short term: Maybe Long term: No

Yes, all those things you see online, and in the “nutrition” aisle at the Target, can work short term. If they didn’t provide some type of results no one would buy them.

They are equivalent to a “Get rich quick” scheme. Promises of weightloss, even seeing a little. But, long term, I don’t know anyone who have had sustainable results with any of them!

What I do know that works is, measuring and weighing your food intake. I know. I know. Seems like a lot of work.

What if I told you it only takes about 5 minutes out of your day. 5 minutes a day to start seeing results.

Either counting calories or going with portion control, measuring and weighing your food should be the go to option!

So, what do you need to do this?

A couple things. Some you probably already have in your house!!

1. Measuring cups

Know what a cup of rice, or 1/2 cup of milk looks like.

2. Measuring spoons

How much oil do you use? Or butter? Or salt? 1 or 2 tablespoons? The difference is 100+ calories. And over the course of a week? 700+ calories that you could have cut!

3. Food Scale

This is major for knowing what your eating! Is that 4oz of chicken or 6? Hope you know, because that’s a 200 calorie difference that most can’t eyeball.

4. Heart Rate Monitor

I LOVE my Fitbit! *Not an ad lol* It gives me soo much information to use. A couple clicks and I have a pretty close estimate to how many calories I’ve burned in a day.

And weightloss is simply eating less calories that you burn. Weight gain is the opposite.

5. Patience!

Everyone wants to lose weight FAST! “10lbs in 3 days. Guaranteed!” Sorry to tell you, but…. that’s a lie. A really big one. Patience, discipline, building habits is key to hitting your goals.

If you lose a 1/2 pound in a week, take the win. Weight loss is not a straight line. It’ll have it’s ups and downs, but sticking to your plan will help in the long run.

How To NOT Gain Weight During The Holidays

How To NOT Gain Weight

During The Holidays

The holiday season is the time to bring people together. Celebrate. See family…. And gain unwanted weight.?.?.?.

It’s why, in a survey done about New Years Resolutions,  45% of people had “Lose weight or get in shape” as part of their resolutions.

And this time of the year plays a BIG part in that. Between Thanksgiving (for some, Halloween!), and New Years, a lot of people gain unwanted weight. I’ve asked a few people about past years weight gains. Some said 5-10lbs, some went up to 15+lbs.

That’s a lot of weight in such a short amount of time. So, I wanted to share some tips, and tricks to combat that seasonal weight gain.

1. Maintain a normal workout routine.
2. Don’t skip workouts. 10 or 15 minutes is better than nothing.
3. Get proper sleep (less sleep= more cravings).
4. It’s ok to say NO. To seconds, extra food, more wine…
5. Fill your plate with a lot of protein and veggies. Aim for at least 70%.
6. 1 plate rule. Fill it up. No second trips.
7. For salads, choose oil based over creamy dressings
8. Be picky with food. Eat the food you REALLY want. Not just because it’s there.
9. No grazing. Hold a convo or catch up with people away from the kitchen.
10. Be mindful of snacking. Eating the cookie is fine. Eating the whole tray, not so much.
11. Don’t have back to back unhealthy meals.
12. Be mindful of alcohol.  Liquid calories add up quick!
13. Go for a walk after a big meal.
14. Keep stress levels down. Meditate,  do yoga.
15. Enjoy yourself! Any unwanted weight that you put on can go away once you’re back into a normal health/fitness routine.
