Are you struggling to lose weight? You are not alone. Weight management is a global concern because there is a direct link between being overweight and sudden death. Not to scare you, even persons who are underweight have the same concern too. That is why maintaining a healthy weight is everyone’s responsibility.
But before you think of losing weight, you need to ensure that you are doing it for the right reasons. Many people are fascinated by the picture perfect models they see on social media and magazine covers. Indeed, there are desirable looks that we all strive to imitate. However, everyone needs to make peace with the fact that you can only be you. While some people are naturally endowed with slim figures, others have to fight to keep fit.
Here are some simple tips to follow if you want to lose some weight:
This generally involves eating more fruits and vegetables than any other class of food. You need to make a list of fruits that you love and are in season. You can also buy in bulk from a fruit market instead of grocery shops that hike the price.
Drinking Lots of Water
Whether you like drinking water or not, you need to embrace it because, it may sound corny but water is life. You need suffice water to rehydrate your skin and help your organs function properly. Many people who suffer kidney failure have either been dealing with heart diseases or been deprived of water for far too long. Instead of feeding your children with carbonated drinks, teach them the value of drinking water and lead by example.
Many people live sedentary lives and suffer unhealthy weight gain. They waste their money on gym sessions and weight loss pills. Instead of living a lie, keep moving. Reduce the hours you spend on wheels. Walk at least 30 minutes daily in comfortable shoes. Use the stairs instead of the elevator. Get up from your seat every hour.
Pastries are your number one enemy when you wish to lose weight. They are so sweet and addictive. Some people have been ensnared by pastries at parties. You need self-discipline to say no. Better still, put a picture of Jennifer Lopez or Beyonce or Kylian Mbappe in front of you as a reminder of that perfect body target. That’s your consolation.
Get Good Associates
You need to surround yourself with people who will support your dream for a healthy weight. There are some ‘frenemies’ who will make fun of you, taunt you until you give in. Stay far away from them and good health to you.
