New Year's Resolution Weight Loss Tips

by


Stick to your New Year's Resolution this year and really get in shape.

Ask someone you know what their New Year’s resolutions are and undoubtedly you will hear weight loss as the number one priority. New Year’s is the time of the year where everyone tries to put bad eating habits behind them and start anew.

Chances are your number one resolution is to lose weight too. Here is some advice to help you stay on track with your New Year’s weight loss goals.

  • Focus on small, mini goals which will ultimately lead you to your main goal. If you want to lose 25 lbs, small goals such as eating more fruits daily or increasing your activity levels everyday will help you to create changes in your lifestyle.
  • Write down your goals in as many places as possible. Write it on a card and put it in your wallet, use a washable crayon and write it on your bathroom mirror, make a sign and place on your refrigerator, etc. The more often you see your goal, the better the chances of you reaching it.
  • Say goodbye to fast foods and processed foods. If you set aside roughly an hour a week, you can plan out all of your meals for that week and save money by only buying what you need. This is will cut down on emergency fast food runs that may occur.
  • Limit the amount of alcohol you consume. When you are trying to lose weight, consuming alcohol can not only affect your judgment on the type of food you are eating, but it can also fill you with empty calories.
  • Add more spices to your cooking to change flavors without adding any fat. Try adding one teaspoon of cinnamon which can help stabilize blood sugar or cayenne pepper which boosts metabolism.
  • Try to find another person who has similar goals as you to help keep you motivated. Once you have some support, you will find that being held accountable to continue to work hard to accomplish your goals is essential to maintaining your motivation.
  • Increase your water intake to make sure you stay hydrated and your body is functioning optimally. Aim for half your body weight in ounces on a daily basis. For example, if you weight 150 lbs, then aim for 75 ounces of water per day. This will ensure a healthy and properly functioning digestive system.
