Weightloss tips

We all wanna know how to drop the pounds fast. The problem is- DIETS DON’T WORK. Weight loss is about LIFESTYLE CHANGE. I swear I cannot say it enough and that is where the real change is. Okay now onto the tips from what I do for weightloss.

  • eat like a queen in the morning, a princess in the afternoon, and a pauper in the evening! Your body can process the fattier, “cheat”, carby food more effectively earlier in the day and has more time to do so when you eat these foods in the morning. I know this is sad. But the brain is tricking you into wanting that comfort food at night. Cut the late night snacking! You don’t need food before sleep.
  • This branches off the last one, don’t eat after 7 or 8 pm (or about 3 hours before you get into bed)
  • This is allllll mental. Make weight loss for YOU.
  • Use a waist trainer (not a corset). I got mine for $5 at Walmart. I wrap it around my waist when I do a low-intensity workout day like Yoga or treadmill walking.
  • Try treadmill inclined walking while watching a TV show on your phone. It’s really not too bad! And if you’re not feeling the hardcore workout that day, try this. Burn fat, watch TV, keep those leg muscles up.
  • Stevia- not sugar. Also honey in stuff is awesome.
  • I love sweet and I love salty. Hmmmm. Make your own hot chocolate, popcorn, exciting water (with mint, cukes, and lemon), trail mix! Make food fun. You can eat dark chocolate if it’s a high %
  • Stay away from Milk. Milk causes weight gain. Also red meat and obviously processed foods and sugar.
  • Try Halo Top or Enlightened Ice Cream (Enlightened is my favorite). This “healthier” Ice Cream is amazingggggg.
  • Take BCAAs during workout and without a meal  What are BCAAS  
  • Zuchinni noodles are so good when properly prepared
  • Go low on the carbs, and eat unprocessed yummy foods like oats, brown rice, and some bread (what? Bread? Yes bread. In moderation.)
  • Check out Pinterest and Instagram for motivation, great recipes, and tips. Careful there’s a lot of diet and scam stuff there too.
  • Try to eat healthily and go workout for a month. Just a month! You can lose over 10 lbs in a month depending on who you are. Keep strong. Imagine yourself in a month and just take it day by day. I swear after 3 days and the sugar cravings wear off, it gets so much easier.
  • At the beginning of weight loss, cardio it up. This will guarantee fat loss. You can weight train later, but the cardio is what’s really going to make the difference.
  • Have a gym partner! I often go to the gym with a friend of mine. He usually goes off and lifts, but it’s still great to have someone who gets you there! Every minute in the gym is helping you.
  • Cook your own food! It is only a little harder to make good, healthier food, and that time produces yummier food.
  • No soda, no sugary alcohol (alcohol is soooooo fat building, super high calorie). The coolers and malt liquor like Smirnoff Ice or Mikes Hard Lemonade are sooooo sugary and high in calories. Beer is horrible in calories. Ugh really it’s so depressing. On drinking days, try to definitely work out, and drink vodka and cranberry juice or something less sugary. Eat before you go out, it will lower the munchies later (plus absorb alcohol, win).
  • Drink water! Drink so much freaking water! Often when you’re hungry, you’re actually thirsty. Also it’s just so great for you. It’s so key.
  • Look into protein shakes. I love the chocolate flavors. They are great for energy and muscle defining post workout.
  • NO SODA. Lord. Just no. No no no.

 

Please don’t starve yourself. Carbs and fat won’t make you fat! You need to eat those and protein (lots of it) for proper weight loss. I’m not a nutritionist or health coach, these are my tips from what I do for my weight loss journey. I’ve lost 10 lbs so far and have 10-20 lbs to go! Let’s burn fat and carve that muscle.
