Here are some ways you may lose weight fast with lifestyle changes –

 

Work on your diet

The first step when it comes to losing weight is to work on your diet. Watching what you eat and eating a balanced healthy diet is the fastest way to lose weight fast. Cutting back on sugars and starchy foods (carbohydrates) will help you massively. Reducing the sugary and starchy foods you eat will reduce your hunger levels which will in turn reduce your weight eventually. Also instead of burning carbohydrates for energy, your body starts to feed off stored fat.

Make sure your diet includes more protein and vegetables. Some great examples are –

Tomatoes

Cucumber

Fish

Meat

Seafood

Spinach

Broccoli

 

Working on your diet is one very important lifestyle change you should make if you want to lose weight.

 

Stay active

You need to stay active so you lose weight and to keep it off. You don’t have to go to a gym to stay active. Going for walks help. Jogging/running is a great way to spend tome outdoors and exercise at the same time. You could also join a dance club to get moving or have your own dance session at home if you prefer that. There are lots of YouTube videos available to help you on that.

Staying active is so very important. Getting out and about everyday, even if it is just for a few minutes helps your mental and physical health.

Eat your food slowly

Believe it or not, eating your food slowly helps you lose weight. This is one tip I was pleased to discover because I eat slowly naturally. That could be one reason why I manage to keep the weight off. Eating your food slowly helps you feel full quicker which will discourage overeating.

 

Drink more water

Research has shown that drinking a glass of water 30 minutes before having a meal will increase weight loss in about 3 months. So if you are struggling with excess weight and have tried every trick in the book, you should try this one.

 

Get a good night’s sleep

Research has proved that sleeping well can help you lose weight. Poor sleep is now strongly linked to obesity so ensure you are getting the right amount of sleep. This is yet another reason to make sure you are sleeping enough. Most adults need around 7/8 hours of good sleep. Poor sleep can lead to many other health problems so getting a good night’s sleep is very important.

Being Underweight or Overweight is not Cool

I love to write. It is a very rewarding and relaxing exercise. I would be completely lost if I could not read or write for a day. Writing and reading has become a part of life, I can’t do without. Fashion and Style Police allows me make a living, working from home and caring for my children. And it feeds my creative juice, which is amazing. It is really the best of all worlds!

Having said that, my fitness life went downhill once I started working from home. Prior to working from home, I had a great fitness routine with my gym workouts and all. But once I popped my kids and started working from home full-time, it became a lot harder to find time for exercise. This time last year, I added a few pounds and felt so heavy. I struggled to get rid of the weight but I got there in the end. My body weight is now back to what it used to be and I am happy with it. I also feel lighter and more healthy, which is great.

Going for long walks really helped me lose the weight. I enjoy going for long walks, especially when I am alone. I like to admire nature, while listening to some good music and taking in the beauty that surrounds me and the freshness in the air. That is why I love my school runs. Since the kiddies started pre school, I get out of the house everyday and I also get to walk back and forth alone, in peace, which is great for my mind.

My fitness live is going in the direction I need it to go. As a work-from-home mother, I have to consciously make an effort to stay fit. The GymCube website has been a massive help. The fitness videos are so useful and I find them easy to do at home. Good to know that the excess weight gained is all in the past. I didn’t gain a lot but I felt heavier and my clothes didn’t fit, so that was the cue I needed to get myself back in shape. I am happy with my current weight (I am a size UK 10 or 12 depending on where I shop). All that is needed now is to strengthen and define my body some more.

Being Underweight or Overweight is not Cool

I see a lot of people both online and offline, who are actively promoting their unhealthy body weights. They act like it is ok to be massively underweight or overweight. If the weight is caused by a health related issue, that is completely different. However, if it is not, then something should be done about it.

If you are truly happy with being overweight or underweight, that is fine but please stop promoting these unhealthy lifestyle on social media.  Being overweight/underweight is not cool and it is not healthy. Stop acting like it is! If you find yourself in such a situation, like I did a year ago, do something about it. If you are honestly happy with your size regardless of what it is, then stay quiet about it. The going back and forth on social media with trolls and fans alike is disturbing. You could be a giving a teenager struggling to lose or gain weight, a thumbs up for remaining the way she is. This is not OK.

This has been on my mind for some time now and I am glad I finally got my thoughts down. What do you think? Is being underweight or overweight now cool on online?

 

 

 

Fat Reduction Treatment – CoolSculpting

In my teenage years and early twenties, my weight was up and down a lot. I was never overweight, but I did battle with weight gain quite regularly. Back then, it was a “thing” to be curvy, so most of us actually went out of our way to put on some extra weight. So I know what it feels like to carry to feel a heavier than normal. I added weight as normal while pregnant with my twins, and I dropped the weight off quite quickly too, which was good. Only to add a bit more again some years. So I worked on my exercise and diet, and dropped it all off. The point I am trying to make is that I know all about being heavier than you would like, and I know many women and men struggle with being overweight. And that is why I am very happy to hear about this non surgical fat reduction treatment called CoolSculpting.
