It may seem that losing weight is the most difficult part of staying fit, but many people find that the difficult part begins once you’ve lost the weight and have to keep it that way. This is because you actually have to change your lifestyle for good.
The trick is not to fall back on those eating habits you’ve been running away from in the first place. Add exercise to that and you’re pretty much there. Here are some tips:
- 1. Weigh yourself on a regular basis. If you are aware of your weight, you are more likely to consider what you eat and when you eat it. Also, to ensure this even more, keep a food journal – write every meal and beverage down. An exercise journal is also a good idea.
- 2. Don’t skip meals – this will slow your metabolism, and will also tempt you to overeat during other meals.
- 3. Eat all the nutrients you need. Find out what foods give what to your body, and eat the necessary amount of everything.
- 4. Get plenty of activity each day. Exercise is one of the essential aspects to staying fit – you best not ignore it.
If you follow these tips to the best of your ability, there should not be any problems in keeping the weight away.
