Every great process needs a beginning but sometimes that is the most difficult part. Especially when it comes to losing weight. The truth is that you may find a dozens reasons not to start this process as you are more than sure that you will fail. Let me tell you what – to achieve a goal you have to set one, otherwise there is no point. You should tell yourself why it’s important to you.
If you are determined to go down this road you should know a few crucial things about the weight-loss process. That is what we are going to talk about today. Here are 10 main rules you have to follow if you want to succeed. Let us begin!
#1 Setting a goal
That is the most important rule. Only once the goal is set the plan of achieving it appears. If you fail sometimes by going backward a little, it does not mean that you failed, you have just made a mistake – so keep going.
This one is important too. Whilst measuring yourself regularly you will see the progress which will lead to additional motivation and that is definitely what you need.
#3 The number of meals
We know that sometimes the way we live is so hectic that there is barely time for anything but once you set your goal you should stick to regular food intake. Make sure that you eat up to 6 meals during the course of a regular day.
#4 Low GI Carbohydrates
Low GI carbohydrate food’s are what you need to stick to while working on your weight loss process. Substitute all bread, pasta and potatoes with brown rice, rye pasta and/or oatmeal.
Of course you have to devote some time to physical activity. Since losing fat is not the only thing that matters. Toning your muscles matters too.
We all know about the great uses of protein and that is why you should make sure that you get enough protein while trying to shed some weight. Either you opt for some protein shakes or make sure that you consume a lot of turkey, chicken, lean beef, eggs, fish, and/or cottage cheese.
It has been said a million time before but we can’t repeat it enough. Drinking a lot of water is important not only while you are trying to lose weight but also in general. Dehydration leads to nothing good.
Get used to planning your meals beforehand so you have time for everything else. Besides, it makes it a lot easier to resist the temptation of eating something unhealthy.
#9 Shopping list
Writing down everything you need at the store. This makes it a lot more difficult to forget about something important and it also helps you refrain from buying something unplanned or unhealthy.
Last but not least, make sure that you get enough sleep so that your body get time to recover and to regain all that is needed for another productive day.
