Are you finding it difficult to stop eating and even more difficult to motivate yourself to exercise. Well, it is all in your head. Retrain your brain and healthy eating and exercise will become easier.
Don’t diet ever again. If you tell yourself to restrict food, it will only make you eat more. It is also unhealthy to restrict too much food and can reduce your nutrition. It is better to start eating healthier, but the thought of that is not very appealing. Most of us think of healthy food as not very appetizing.
If you want to lose weight or you just want to eat better of good health, you should begin to add healthy foods to your daily diet. Buy several kinds of vegetables that can be eaten quickly with very little preparation such as baby carrots, celery sticks and cherry tomatoes. Wash them and keep them handy in your refrigerator or cooler.
Before each meal, eat a cup full of vegetables. Don’t bother your mind with restrictions on what you can eat, just add healthy vegetables before your meal. You will fill up your stomach and most likely eat less at meal time. Over time, your body will crave more healthy foods and you will slowing eat more and more vegetables naturally which will help you lose weight or maintain your healthy weight.
Also buy natural yogurt, raw walnuts, raw almonds or sunflower seeds as snacks. They are a great addition to your current snack and eventually you may be able to replace your unhealthy snack with a tasty healthy one.
This is not a quick, over night weight loss plan, instead it is an easy, gentle approach to eating healthy and losing weight.
If you hate the idea of exercising, do not stress your mind by thinking that exercise takes time and it to grueling for you to do. Instead, set a low bar for yourself that you can reach easily. For example, you can tell yourself that you only need to do ten crunches today. (Crunch – lay on your back and bring your needs up above you abdomen at the same time that you lean your head forward with your hands behind your neck. Touch your elbows to your knees.)
Ten is only a small amount. It is a goal that you can reach. Don’t think about a greater amount. Don’t stress that it is not enough, because it is a start. Later in the day or when you feel like it, you can do ten more crunches or may be ten squats. Over time, you may be able to do 100 crunches or 100 squats per day by doing them ten at a time and never putting pressure on yourself to do more.
Eventually you will build more muscle which will burn fat and calories even when you are sleeping. Every time you do a squat or a crunch just imagine that you are building your own fat burn machine. Over time, you may even begin to enjoy exercising and want to do it more.
After meals you should walk somewhere. Anywhere at first. Just walk around your block or next door to the neighbor. Increase your time slowly.
Eating healthier and moving more will help you to lose weight. Eventually, you may start to enjoy your new healthy habits.
