Getting your health and weight to where you feel most comfortable can seem like a tedious task when you don’t know where to begin. Here is a list of the top tips to shedding that extra weight this year! These tips can be implemented in your day to day routine and you will see and feel the results!
Color Your Plate
When people diet, they end up losing many needed nutrients. So, instead of restricting yourself, learn how to count your macros and color your plate with fresh foods full of the proper proteins, fats, and carbs!
Add more Protein
Most people do not get enough protein in their diet, but it is an important component to building muscle mass. Adding more protein will give you extra energy and allow you to burn fat and maintain your muscles. If you aren’t feeding your muscles enough protein, you may slow your metabolism and lose muscle mass.
Drink More Water
This may seem repetitive and obvious but is absolutely necessary to losing weight! If you are dehydrated, your body actually hangs on to more water which may increase those numbers on the scale. Try to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day and feel hydrated and refreshed! Start with a few cups right away in the morning to give you a head start!
Love Your Workout
If going to the gym seems like a hard task, you’re not doing it right! Going to the gym should feel like a place to blow off steam and push your strength to the limits. That being said, the traditional gym environment may not be for you and there are plenty of other places to get exercise such as a boutique studio, the pool, outdoors, or even at home! For optimal results, try implementing more weight training to build muscle and burn fat!
Track Your Fitness
Wearing a fitness tracker creates a lot of extra motivation to get those steps in! Whether you are tracking steps on your own or create step challenges with friends, this is an awesome light-hearted way of increasing your physical activity throughout the day.
