01 Jan 5 Simple Weight-Loss Strategies – Part I
It’s easy enough to say eat less, move more, but often more difficult to do. Here are a few ideas on how to make it easier:
1. REMOVE TEMPTATION
If you’re trying to set yourself up for success, keeping donuts and chips around isn’t doing you any favors. Give your pantry and fridge a little makeover to stay on track with your goals.
When I want ice cream, I must leave the house and pay $4.00 for a scoop of ice. If I really want it, I will do it. Otherwise, I will not spend $4.00 on one scoop!
2. STOP EATING AFTER DINNER
Late-night noshes are usually high-calorie, large portions or snacky foods (Read: cookies, ice cream, chips and candy) eaten mindlessly out of enjoyment to unwind from the stress of the day. It’s a recipe for weight gain and disaster.
So, the real issue is not eating after dinner. The real issue is mindless eating and over doing it in the evening.
