Weight Management – Solutions Are Easier Than You Might Think

Eat More, Drink More, Lose More Weight. There is no disputing the fact that exercise is important in any weight loss goal. However, what is often overlooked but crucial is diet – and not in the traditional sense of the word. Proper nutrition is THE most important step in any successful weight loss program. There are many variations of exercise which work for different body types to achieve weight loss goals. But if these efforts are not combined with proper nutrition your results will be short lived. Slow metabolism is your worst enemy…even more so than the double-bacon cheeseburger or triple-dip hot fudge sundae at your favorite restaurant. Slow metabolism is the result of poor nutrition, yo-yo dieting and inactivity.

The key to any successful weight loss program is increasing your metabolism. Increased metabolism gives you more energy and burns more fat. What’s the smartest solution? Don’t skip breakfast. Eating breakfast daily can help you lose weight and keep it off. Individuals who skip breakfast tend to mindlessly nibble throughout the day and binge eat at lunch and dinner. Eating early, and often, jump-starts your metabolism and keeps it up throughout the day. Smart meal solutions for those trying to lose weight include small and frequent portions of fruit, vegetables, whole grains and proteins. These high-fiber, low-fat foods fill you up with fewer calories. Plus, remember to drink at least two liters of water a day. The equation to achieve and maintain your weight loss goal is MORE not LESS: more of the right foods + more water and exercise = more weight loss.
