Tips for Weight Loss







In order to maintain a healthy weight, you need to burn more calories than you eat.






Maintaining a low calorie diet with the right balance of protein, fat, and carbohydrates combined with light to moderate physical activity will help assure successful weight loss.

To help keep you on track, and reach your weight loss goals, we have put together some helpful weight loss tips.










Do



  • Drink a large glass (16oz) of water before each meal. This will help keep you hydrated, and reduce feelings of hunger, making you less likely to overeat.  Experts recommend drinking at least 8-10 cups of water per day.

 

  • Practice portion control by using smaller dishes. Studies have shown using large plates and utensils can cause people to unconsciously eat larger portions at meal time. Using smaller plates and utensils during meals helps to control portion size.

  • Get a good nights sleep.  Studies have shown that a lack of sleep can change your appetite, causing you to crave high calorie foods. Averaging 7-9 hours of sleep per night is recommended for adults.

  • Snacking, we recommend you skip the snacks. If you feel you need to snack to help ensure you won’t over eat at meal time, then replace sugary snacks with healthy alternatives.  Some healthy snacks suggestions include:  Fat Free Pop Corn, Salsa and Pita Chips, Plain Greek Yogurt, Fresh Avocados, Pickles, Olives, Seeds and Nuts.  

  • Cook your own meals.  Preparing your meals at home allows you to control portion size and what goes into your food.  Restaurant and Fast Food meals are often served in huge portions and contain large amounts of salt, sugar, and, unhealthy fats.  

  • Eat slowly and chew your food thoroughly until it is liquefied.  This will make your food easier to digest and allow the message of “fullness” to be sent to your brain.










Using portion control and choosing a mix of healthy foods at meal time will help you control how many calories you eat at a time.











Don’t








  • Do not skip Breakfast. Missing breakfast can cause you to binge eat later in the day and promote unhealthy food choices.

 

  • Healthy breakfast options include:  unsweetened oatmeal, avocado and tomato omelets, hard boiled eggs, all natural unsweetened yogurts.  Taking Your Boomer Forever Young products prior to eating breakfast will ensure your complete nutritional needs are met.

  • Don’t snack from family-size bags of snacks. Divide large snack packages into individual servings.

  •  Don’t over eat.  Listen to your body and stop eating when you are full.  Feeling full is the result of your brain reacting to the chemicals that are released when you eat.  On average this signal takes about 10-15 minutes to register the feeling of being full, and continues to increase for the next 10-20 minutes.  If you don’t feel satisfied directly after eating a meal wait, as the level of chemicals rise your hunger will subside.       

  • Don’t let an evening out ruin your weight loss goals.  When going out to dinner try sharing a   meal with someone in your party.  Most restaurants will let you share an entrée.  If this is not practical, order a to-go box with your meal, then split the meal in half before you start eating.  Another option to limit calorie intake is to substitute an entrée with an appetize.



  • Don’t Give Up.




  •   Staying motivated with your weight loss goals is your key to your success.
