Food, the less Ingridents in a food item the better, eating just enough, not untill full.
Be active walk to the bus stop walk to the grocery store dance around anime do some exercises at home or at the gym.
I started growing my own vegetables in my back garden, which had the knock on effect of making me want to eat differently. I made the decision not to diet, but to change my whole lifestyle little by little.
I started slowly by making smoothies using fresh ingredients from my garden and replacing one meal per day with a smoothie. I then cut out processed sugar and simple carbohydrates. At no point did I allow myself to feel hungry or deprived, and I let it happen slowly and naturally. Once I started losing some weight, I was able to start getting some light exercise.
It’s been nearly 3 months and I’m already wearing quite a few items of clothing from my pre-pregnancy wardrobe and my weight loss is visible to others. Bearing in mind that I didn’t start on this journey to lose weight, but rather to have more energy, I’d say the results have been thrilling.
These are the key take home points for me:
1: Slow and steady wins the race. Focus on your health and the rest will follow.
2: Don’t deprive yourself. Have some rules in place but if you really need a piece of chocolate, just go ahead and have it.
3: When you start to exercise, start slowly. Walk around the block, dance around the living room, climb up a few flights of stairs. If you go all in from day 1, you’re going to put yourself off and will likely not continue.
I even have a small thigh gap again! Listen to your body, we are all different and there’s no one size fits all for this kind of thing. If you fall of the wagon, don’t get discouraged or let disappointment fool you into thinking you can’t jump right back on.
I also have fat around my belly which is stubborn and hard to lose. Perhaps, avoiding carbs and bad cholestrol mighr ne useful. Exercise is also going to be very important including planks, crunches.
When you start doing regular and intense sport sessions, you will start to think more about healthy eating as well.
Try to find a sport that you like. Preferably you combine it with some kind of core training, since core muscles are always a good combination to belly fat 🙂
Don't do this alone. Find a group of people to do the sport together, or a club that you can join. Make sure they train regularly, since otherwise you will stop very fast.
We can eat more veggies, fruits, and white meats (seafood, fish, chicken).
Drinking water and avoiding sodas .
Doing exercise every day, cardio exercises are extremely helpful. Also abs exercise is very important. There are programmed videos such as insanity which is very good to help us to stick to our exercise plan.
Eat breakfast, lunch. But try to cut down and minimize dinner.
