If you tell someone that in order to lose weight, they need to cut out all sweets, exercise for hours daily, prepare all meals and no longer dine out, they may say forget it. Why would they give up on their goal before even starting? Well, first off, it is too much work. No one wants to deprive themselves and change their lives completely. For most people, change in general is not easy and when it comes to eating, we are creatures of habit. So forget about the extreme and let’s make small, simple changes that add up to make a big difference. Start out with steps like these:
Begin your day with eggs and an apple, have a salad in the afternoon and some nuts as a snack, have your whole grains and lean protein for dinner and follow this up with a healthy snack. Make healthier food choices and the scale will thank you for it as you see the number go down!
