How to Stay Healthy as you Lose Weight
To tell you the truth, it’s not hard for most people to lose weight. A combination of exercise and a focused diet can reduce your weight by 10, 20 or even 30 pounds in a short amount of time to stay healthy. What most people actually struggle with is maintaining that weight loss in the long term, and remaining healthy as they lose weight. Remember – weight loss is not synonymous with being fit, and some of the measures people take to achieve the former can actually make them less healthy. In fact, diets that restrict your calories over and over again alter your metabolism for the worse.
That’s why we’re going to talk about ways you can lose weight and remain healthy at the same time.
Make sure to eat a healthy breakfast. Not only does this boost your metabolism, but it makes you less likely to be hungry and snack the rest of the day.
At the same time, eat less for lunch and dinner. There’s a tendency to eat a lot more for lunch and dinner than we actually need. One way to eat smaller portions is by using smaller plates. Food portions in small plates appear larger than they are, and it’s a great way to trick your body into feeling fuller.
Eat nourishing meals. Counting calories doesn’t help you as much as consuming nutrient-dense foods like whole grains, lean meats, vegetables and healthy fat. Cut down on the processed and refined foods too, as well as sugar filled items.
Say no to carbs and diet soda. Refined carbohydrates, like the ones you find in soda, cupcakes, cookies, candy, cake, chips and fruit juice, can be the death knell to your weight loss efforts. Choose high fiber and lower carb meal items, and sate your diet soda urges with iced teas or carbonated water.
And most importantly, use your Elite Weight Loss supplements as instructed on the label and drink plenty of water. Use the Elite boost detox as well.
