Start With Small Changes

How many times have you decided to lose weight and then drastically changed what you ate and drank? Maybe you even started to work out an hour or two a day. How long did it last? After a few days or weeks you start to get burned out and get tired of this completely different lifestyle. That’s exactly why so many of us fail in our weight loss efforts. The key is to make small, gradual changes instead. Don’t turn your entire life around. Instead, start going for a walk after work or on your lunch break three times a week. Start drinking an extra glass of water a day, or distract yourself when you want to eat out of boredom. Small changes like t his will add up in the long run. As you get used to some of these changes, add something else to make your lifestyle healthier. Next you may want to start packing a healthy lunch, or preparing some veggies or a salad as a side dish for dinner.

Don’t completely cut out every food you love, instead allow yourself that piece of chocolate, or indulge in a few bites of cake. You can get away with just about anything in moderation. Eat a little bit of your favorite foods after filling up on some healthier fare, and then walk away.
Before you know it all these small changes you are making will become habits.
