If you focus on making small, simple lifestyle changes, you're more likely to stay in the habit.
Drink lots of water! We sometimes mistake thirst for hunger, so next time you feel a pang, drink a glass of water. If, after a few minutes, you’re still hungry, then have a snack. Water also helps keep your metabolism working hard.
7. Skip the soda.
Soda has no nutritional value. Giving up soda is one of the simplest ways to cut down on sugar. The same is true for fruit juice, sweetened iced tea, and any other drink with added sugar. If you don’t want plain water, make your own clean drink. Our Cucumber Melon Detox Drink and our Cleansing Cucumber Lemonade are both great choices.
8. Get moving!
Make a point of exercising every day. It’s not only important for weight loss – it will help you sleep, improve your mood, and improve your overall health. If you don’t have time for a full workout, take the stairs instead of the elevator, do some squats on your lunch break, or park farther away to sneak in a walk.
9. Start weight training.
Weight training won’t make you look bulky. It’s important – muscle helps speed up your metabolism. If you don’t have free weights and don’t belong to a gym, you can weight train with bodyweight exercises. These 12 Bodyweight Workouts for faster weight loss will strengthen and tone your whole body.
10. Get a good night’s sleep.
Sleep is crucial for weight loss and for overall health. If you stay up late, you’ll be more likely to snack. You also might reach for sugar for energy if you’re tired during the day.
