Whenever you feel like drinking your favorite soda, take a glass of water or healthy smoothie instead. Sodas have lots of calories and when taken regularly, contribute enormously to your weight gain.
Avoid salad dressing
The creamy mayonnaise or any other type of dressing you’re used to could be adding 100 calories in your diet. Use ingredients like vinegar as salad dressing because they don’t have any calories.
Eat healthy snacks
Other than grabbing your favorite snack from the vending machine why not have an apple, yoghurt, nuts or any other healthy snack in your office, at home or in the car. Get rid of the candy and sodas you have lying around your home or office desk and replace them with healthy bites. Whenever you get the urge to snack, you should have something healthy around to resist the temptation of rushing to the vending machine.
Plan your meals
Many people end up binge eating because they don’t decide on what they’ll eat until they get home. You may get home only to realize that there are no healthy foods to prepare and end up snacking before going to bed. Plan your meals early in advance and stick to your healthy diet even if you have guests.
Carry a healthy lunch
You can save a lot of money by carrying your homemade lunch to work instead of buying food. The other advantage is that you get to choose how many calories are in the meal. Simple meals like a sandwich and carrot sticks are good enough for lunch break. You can carry a homemade smoothie or yoghurt to supplement the dish. And try to walk a short distance every day after taking your lunch.
Start with a morning jog
The best way to keep up with any weight loss program is to start small. Start by walking at least 10 minutes every morning because it makes you fresh for the day. If waking up early to walk is just too hard for you then spend at least 30 minutes during the day walking.
