If you’re looking to lose weight but don’t have a lot of time to commit to it, that’s okay. You can still lose weight without making a lot of effort towards it. Just by changing a few things in your life. They don’t take up much time, so it might be something that you will do.
Easy Way #1 -Eat often- I know everyone seems to think that if you want to lose weight you have to starve yourself. This is completely wrong. If you’re looking to lose weight you should eat smaller meals more often. Carry around healthy snacks to eat in-between your normal meals. Have cut up fruits and vegetables ready to go.
Easy Way #2 -Walk more- If you’re like me you think walking is kind of boring. I know this is how I feel; I would do it more often if I had someone to walk with. Since I don’t, I do extra things so I can still get some walking in. When I go shopping or anywhere else that I need to go, I make sure I park far away from the door. This get some extra walking time in. If you’re able to, take the stairs instead of the elevator. If you can’t do a lot of stairs then do a little bit. Let’s say you have to go up 10 flights of stairs. Do 2 or 3 sets of stairs, then jump on the elevator. Next day maybe you can add a set of stairs. Even doing that small amount will help you.
Easy Way #3 -Snacking- When you go grocery shopping you should stock up on fruits and vegetables. A lot of us will do this part, but we won’t go any further. Most fruits and vegetables have to be washed and cut and peeled, so we don’t bother with it. It’s much easier to unwrap a candy bar or grab a bag of chips. So when you get home from shopping peel your fruits and chop your vegetables to make them more portable. This way you will grab them instead of the chips.
Easy Way #4 -Water- I know you have herd so many times that you should drink more water. This is all fine and dandy, but if you love your soda like I do, then it’s hard to do. So train yourself to do something different. I stopped buying myself pop in a can and started buying only 2 liters. I drink my coffee in the morning, and then drink a bottle of water. After that I will allow myself to have small glass of pop. Once that’s gone I have to drink another full bottle of water before I can have anymore pop. This way I am getting in more water then nothing at all. Yes, it’s not perfect and I should still get more water in, but at least it’s something. And soon I hope to train myself to have my coffee in the morning then water and only one small glass of pop during the way.
