Losing weight and keeping it off isn’t an overnight accomplishment. It takes ample amounts of hard-work, the belief that you can do it, and the drive to tread forward with strength. Through this constant strength and determination, you’ll be able to achieve the body you desire.
Your body should always be healthy, not just in terms of how it looks, but also more importantly in terms of how it feels. Eating right, exercising, taking your supplements and getting required periods of rest are factors which will aid you towards your ultimate weight loss goals.
Here are a few great tips you can try to help you keep the pounds off after WLS:
Prepare your meals for the week and stick to them instead of eating fast and unhealthy foods. The most important and effective method of making sure you eat well by eating healthy is through prepping your meals. How many times a week do you find yourself running late in the morning and so end up consuming unhealthy foods for breakfast? By prepping your meals at the beginning of every week, you can reduce a significant amount of weight by just eating from home.
Increase Water Intake
Detox your body and make sure you’re hydrated so you don’t end up eating when all you are is thirsty. The consumption of water is of incredible importance to our body’s health and well-being. Staying hydrated flushes out harmful toxins from within your body and even helps you in feeling full, so you don’t overindulge in unnecessary calories. Many times, the pangs of hunger you feel are in actuality your body asking for hydration. Drinking ample amounts of water will prevent you from gaining unnecessary weight.
Work Out with a Friend
Make your workouts more effective and see greater results. Exercising on a regular basis keeps your mind and body fit. It’s required for strong muscle growth and maintenance, and yet can be a hard activity to make time for and motivate yourself to perform. Working out may not be the highlight of your day but you can definitely make it more enjoyable by working out with a friend.
Sleep helps maintain a healthy balance of the hormones that make you feel hungry (ghrelin) or full (leptin). When you don’t get enough sleep, your level of ghrelin goes up and your level of leptin goes down. This makes you feel hungrier than when you’re well-rested. Lack of sleep will only lead to unhealthy eating patterns created by a tired and discontent body.
