Tip #7: Prepare Your Meals In Advance

When you’re busy rushing around after your children, dealing with your chores, working, and trying to find a little time for your own hobbies, it’s often easier to grab a snack or meal on the go.

prepped food weight management tipsThis is the worst thing you can do!

You won’t know what you’re eating in terms of nutrition. Processed food is likely to have harmful additives and plenty of sugar to give you energy while boosting your fat levels.

Instead, plan your meals in advance and spend a few hours once or twice a week preparing them. You can then keep the ingredients fresh in your refrigerator or the meal ready in your freezer.

You won’t need to waste time thinking about what to eat or take the easy route and order takeout. You can simply reach for a prepared meal and know that you’re eating a balanced, nutritious meal.

Tip#6: Weigh Yourself Every Day

The general consensus is not to use the scales too much. After all, losing weight while building muscle is likely to leave the scales saying the same thing.

Leave the scales visible next to your sink. Every time you brush your teeth, stand on them and check your weight. It will fluctuate by a few pounds.

But, this weight management tip works. You’ll be more accountable for what you eat as you’ll know the scales are waiting. This constant reminder will make you think twice before you go back for seconds or take that snack that you know you shouldn’t have.

This is one of the simplest weight management tips you can do, and it is incredibly effective.

Tip#5: Drink Water & Green Tea

You know you need to drink water to stay hydrated. Your body is between 50% and 60% water. Keeping your water levels up ensure your cells are working efficiently and effectively, improving your overall health.

You can supplement your water drinking with green tea.  Drinking green tea without sugar is a great way to mix it up and add some flavor to your life.

It is also known to boost your metabolism and increase fat burning. Weight loss in a simple drink!

Tip#4: Use Portion Control

A great method of making sure you eat healthily is to adopt the perfect plate approach. This ensures you are eating a good balance of protein, carbohydrates, and vegetables.

Tip#3: Make Fruit Visible (and other snacks invisible)

If you’re really serious about creating long-term habits, then start with a fruit bowl. Place it where you can see it, and you’ll be more tempted to reach for the fruit when you need a snack.

In conjunction with this, hide or even get rid of the junk food you know you shouldn’t be eating. That means the biscuits, crisps, and cakes which taste so good, but the taste lasts just a few moments. The additional weight can be much harder to shift.

Tip#2: Rise & Shine

You’ve probably heard the saying, “the early bird catches the worm.” In fact, it’s true. If you can get up early then research suggests you’ll be more inclined to make healthy food choices.

Of course, if you can add a little exercise to your morning routine, you’ll boost your metabolism for the day ahead, making it even easier to control your weight or lose some.

Tip#1: Create A Place For Exercise

Eating healthy is essential to losing weight, maintaining your current weight, and even building muscle. It is also the key to better health and lowering your risk of disease.
