There is so much information on the internet about weight loss that it can be incredibly overwhelming. Where do you even begin?
Here are our 3 underrated weight loss tips to help you lose fat!
There’s a reason this one is first and sleep is a big piece of the weight loss puzzle. Lack of sleep can cause us to hold on to weight due to increased cortisol levels, impact our recovery (leading to subpar workouts) and affect our hunger hormones. Ever notice you are more hungry when you are tired? Address your sleep hygiene by starting with these simple tips.
Set a bedtime for yourself each night and stick to it!
Avoid high-intensity exercise late in the afternoon. Instead, wind down with yoga, pilates, or go for an after-dinner stroll.
Stop the scroll. Avoid screens at least 2 hours before bedtime so as to not disrupt your sleep patterns.
5 Staple Meals
It can be incredibly challenging to think about different meals on a weekly basis, especially ones that fit your weight loss goals. As you might have heard before, the key to losing fat is staying consistent. Find 5 meals that you enjoy eating and have them on repeat! You can still aim for variety by switching the seasonings, sides, and kinds of fruits/vegetables you use.
For example, I love to eat Avocado toast and each time ill top it with something different like kimchi, sauerkraut, tomatoes, and even berries.
Eat MORE throughout the day
This might seem like a strange concept if you have gone on a diet before. Eating balanced meals and snacks every 3-4 hours will keep your blood sugars and your energy stable throughout the day. Doing this will also prevent you from getting “hangry” and making irrational decisions around food. The goal is to stay nourished, not starve, and give your body the nutrients it needs to function optimally. Instead of aiming to eat “as little as possible”, switch to a “what can I ADD to my plate” mindset.
Don’t eat veggies? Add one cup at lunch and dinner.
Consume a lean protein at each meal. Focus on whole foods first but if needed, supplement with a protein powder.
Snack on fruits, vegetables, and nuts throughout the day!
