Here are a few tips to help you lose weight and, more importantly keep it off for good. Firstly – don’t be tempted to put yourself on a strict “diet” – the majority of people who do this not only regain the weight they lose, but put on more weight besides.
Making small sustainable changes to your diet and lifestyle that can be kept up for the rest of your life will not only mean that you lose weight – but will also help you to maintain your weight loss.
Examples can be snacking on vegetables, having smaller portions and moving around more – these changes all add up over the long term.
Ensure you eat 3 balanced meals a day, keep hydrated and don’t skip breakfast.
Planning is key to success – most of us lead busy lives and find ourselves hungry, and then can make poor food choices such as high fat or sugary foods - knowing what we will eat and what to buy helps to avoid this happening.
Try not to have tempting snacks such as chocolate and crisps at home – few people can have these foods...
