Tips for you:
One surefire way to cut calories is to control your portions. Learn how to eat less of some foods such as fatty meats, fats, desserts and sweets. Fill your plate with more fruits and vegetables.
Snack Smart and Healthy
Make your snacks healthy and snack on cut-up or ready-to-go vegetables. Try something simple like a piece of fruit, a handful of nuts or a piece of part-skim cheese with whole grain crackers. Smart snacking requires you to plan ahead!
Move that body
Exercise has been shown to aid weight loss, but even more importantly, it helps you keep the weight off. It can lower blood sugar, has heart-health benefits, improves joint mobility, and even improves sleep quality. ADA recommends at least 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity aerobic activity and resistance training twice a week.
Lose 5 % of your body weight
The best way to lose weight is to eat less of some foods. Start by just eating a few bites less at each meal. Keep eating less by monitoring portion sizes. Set a short term goal to achieve first and set out to change your eating habits forever.
Try to manage your stress and keep life balanced. Ways to reduce stress include taking a walk, reading a book, watching a good movie, or pausing to reflect and breathe!
Work on getting a sufficient amount of deep sleep to feel rested. Change your bedtime routine to help you decompress. Two healthy lifestyle actions can improve your sleep quality: moving more and losing a few pounds!
