Do’s And Don’t’s For Weight Loss

Do's And Don't's For Weight Loss

We all know that skipping breakfast, nibbling on fruits and vegetables and eating too much protein are all weight-loss mistakes. However, these aren’t the only things that can stand in the way of your efforts to drop some kilos.

As it turns out, there are a few things that could seem small, but over time, can add up and cause you to pile on those kilos! 


Weight loss do’s and don’t’s

Limit meat consumption

Meat is a major source of fat. So, keep your portions under 150g daily. Eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grains.

Avoid skipping meals

When you’re active during the day, your body needs nutrients and calories. Therefore, try to eat regular meals including a healthy breakfast because this will help you cut down on impulse snacking, and will reduce meal size and calorie intake.

Exercise regularly

Any type of exercise burns calories. So, to promote weight loss, try to exercise at a moderate intensity for about 30 to 60 minutes at least four times a week.

Don’t starve yourself

If you’re on a very strict diet, you’ll eventually go back to bad eating habits. Therefore, you need to learn how to eat a variety of healthy foods and lose weight at the same time, otherwise, you won’t maintain your weight loss.

Drink lots of water

Drinking water with every meals helps you fill up quicker. In addition, it slows the your eating pace. Those who eat quickly tend to overeat.

Reduce stress

Stress triggers overeating. So, instead of turning to comfort foods, try relaxation techniques such as meditation and deep breathing.

Don’t weigh everyday

Most people trying to lose weight want to stand on the scale everyday. However, there are body shifts daily in body water which can look like weight gain on your scale.
