Losing weight is never easy and it is a frequent goal for many people. In fact losing weight and getting healthy is the number one New Year’s Resolution every year. Most people just keep making the resolution without making any real progress. To break the cycle these weight loss tips for 2015 are geared toward long term weight loss. So you will not only lose the weight but keep it off so that next year’s resolution can be entirely new.
1. No Fad Diets
Whether it’s the grapefruit diet, the soup diet, the chocolate diet, the diet that requires chugging maple syrup and cayenne pepper, just stay away. The stranger it sounds the less likely you should be doing it to your body. Many of these fad diets gain popularity because they work for the short term but they can’t be done forever. Once people stop the fad diet they gain the weight back and often end up heavier than when they started.
2. Get Snacking
Most people like to snack throughout the day. You do it because you’re bored, because you’re stressed because you just want to break up your work day. Then when people want to lose weight they think they need to cut out these snacks. The problem is that this can make you break down and choose unhealthy snacks or overeat at meals. So keep plenty of fruits, veggies and protein packed snacks around. You’ll see and feel the difference with this change right away.
