Eat Less, Move More and Be Accountable

 

Quick fix weight loss

Everyone is looking for a quick fix weight loss – a magic pill, a potion or a shake. I have struggled with weight all my life. I have tried just about everything to lose weight, and you know what? The answer is right there in front of your face, just like it was in front of mine…. Eat less move more and be accountable.

If I continue to eat and drink, live a sedentary lifestyle and just moan about it, then it will all stay the same.

So make a change!

Make more than one! Make a list of things you can change:

Is your portion size too big?

Do you eat too much cake and crisps?

Do you drink too much wine or sugary drinks?

Make a list and make one change a week, or even better make one change a day, and watch the changes take effect.

Think portion size

Cut your portions down by using a smaller plate or make your usual amount and put one portion in the freezer. Just by reducing your calories at each meal in this simple way will help you lose weight!

Save the alcohol for the weekend. I know how it feels to get home from work and head straight for the fridge and that bottle of wine! And that first glass disappears quickly! Have you ever thought that maybe you are just thirsty and a big glass of water could save you a few hundred calories a day?

Sweet treats and crisps are so tempting and we often over eat them without thinking. I know carrot sticks aren’t quite the same but if you are getting ready for your holidays, reducing those mindless calories could be the difference between feeling good in your shorts and wishing it would rain so you can put your joggers back on!

Be accountable

Make yourself accountable. Keep a food and drink diary and be honest! It may surprise you just how much you really do eat and drink. Make small changes to your usual habits and replace snacking with one of those jobs that need doing around the house instead!
