Most of us strive to be healthier for the new year and we all know it's not easy sticking to a diet. If you need some help getting started, here are a few tips that you can implement into your lifestyle!
Drink more water. Water helps flush out the toxins in our bodies and sometimes we feel hungry and start snacking when we may be thirsty.
Find exercise you love. If you don't enjoy what you're doing, you're going to be less motivated to stick to it.
Are you snacking in the middle of the night? Try eating fuller meals throughout the day. You'll be less hungry at night.
When you're craving something, check if there's a healthier alternative. If there isn't, eat it in moderation.
Don't deprive yourself. There's no need to eliminate an anything in your diet in order to lose weight. Everything in moderation.
Sit down to eat without your phone or distractions. You'll be more likely to stop eating when you're full and you can fully enjoy your meal.
Eat three meals a day and try to make any snacks whole food focused instead of processed snacks.
Add more veggies on your plate. Veggies are filling and full of nutrients!
Plan out your meals for the week. Make a list of the things you're going to eat for the week and shop for those items. Going to the grocery store without an idea of what you're making will lead you to possibly making unhealthy choices or buying random stuff.
Don't have snacks in the pantry that are unhealthy. Out of sight, out of mind.
Eat at home. You'll know exactly what's going into your meal.
Limit alcohol and soda consumption. Cut down on empty calories. If you're having a drink at night, maybe eat less carbs during the day.
Remember that eating healthier should be a lifestyle not a 30 day plan. Implementing healthy habits in your daily life is more sustainable than a plan that deprives you of what you actually want to eat.
