Weight loss requires a combination of several habits:
Eating a balanced diet that is low in calories enough to place you in a slight deficit and high in nutrient-dense foods, such as fruits, vegetables, and adequate amounts of proteins.
Engage in regular bouts of physical activity, such as cardio and strength training, to burn calories and build/preserve muscle mass.
A consistent monitoring of portion sizes and keeping track of the number of calories consumed each day. Don’t try to guess, use scales for an amount of time that it takes for you to know how to estimate your portion sizes but alway refer back to your scale weight when in doubt.
Drinking enough water to stay hydrated and avoid overeating. Set hydration targets throughout the day to help you stay on track. Keep a water bottle with you at arms length at all times.
Managing stress levels through techniques such as yoga, meditation, mindfulness or deep breathing. Anything that can put your body in a parasympathetic state of deep rest.
Getting enough sleep each night, as lack of sleep can affect hormones that regulate appetite. Your quality of sleep is also important, have a sleep routine and stick with it consistently, this discipline will change your life.
Avoiding processed foods, sugary drinks, and excessive alcohol consumption.
Following a consistent eating schedule and avoid too much snacking. If you need to snack eat fruits or protein sources.
Finding a form of physical activity that you enjoy and making it a part of your daily routine. This will help you stay consistent.
Seeking support from friends and family, or a professional personal trainer, to help you stay on track and achieve your weight loss goals.
Weight loss is not a one-size-fits-all process and it’s important to consult a professional coach who can guide you and mentor you through a weight loss program with the right strategy for you. There is no quick fix, achieving health and weight loss is a journey that will have many hurdles stick to the plan and get through the tough bits and you will reap the rewards in the long run.
