Trying to lose weight and struggling is something that I’m sure most people will relate to. It can be a difficult process, especially if you aren’t doing it right for you. Attempting to lose weight too quickly isn’t the healthy way to do it and often leads to people gaining the weight straight back anyway. The Ld Nutrition way of losing weight is healthy for you and far more likely to help you keep the pounds off in the long term. So, how do you lose weight healthily?
First off, yes losing weight does involve lowering your calorie intake however there’s no need to go to extremes. Restricting your intake too much can actually lead to you gaining weight. With too much restriction, you’re more likely to have those moments where you ‘give up’ and instead of eating just one doughnut, you eat an entire box. Keeping your calorie intake right for your body is essential.
The average woman needs 2,000 calories a day just to maintain weight so simply lowering your calorie intake by 400/500 calories can see you losing almost a pound a week. Choose meals you enjoy eating and don’t restrict yourself from eating the foods that you love, this will only lead to you craving that food. If you hate salads with a passion, don’t force yourself to keep eating them, there are numerous meals you can make that have even more nutrients than a simple salad and are 100% delicious, and filling!
Drink Plenty of Water
Water is an essential part of losing weight. Drinking water throughout the day keeps you hydrated, feeling more full for longer and provides your body with a multitude of excellent benefits. If you do find it difficult to drink more water, start by switching out at least one of your fizzy or caffeinated drinks a day for a glass of water. Start taking a water bottle with you everywhere and take sips regularly, you’ll be drinking more water than ever without even realising it.
Losing weight can be made easier by having an active lifestyle. Just 30 minutes of exercise a day can make all the difference for you and your body. If you do live a very busy lifestyle and don’t have the time to exercise, there are a wide range of small differences you could make to work towards giving yourself a more active lifestyle. Opt for the stairs instead of a lift, park that little bit further away from work or set a reminder on your phone every hour or so to get up and do some, even just a little, movement. Sometimes the smallest changes can make the biggest differences.
