The basic weight loss principles are –
Stick to a diet – Choose one among the long list of different diets out there but make sure to stick to some form of diet. All diets have the same basic features – high protein, high dairy, low carbs, sugar and fats, lots of fruits and vegetables, less oil and sugar. So if you’re following these basic rules, you’re on the right track. Here are the best vegetables to eat for weight loss.
Maintain or increase your BMR – your basal metabolic rate is the number of calories your body burns on its own without any extra physical activity or exercise. To increase your BMR, be more active and incorporate some form of exercise into your daily routine whether it’s going to the gym, dancing, yoga or playing a sport that you love. Here is a link to a BMR calculator you can use to calculate your basic metabolic rate.
Control hunger pangs or cravings and avoid junk food – basically, watch everything you eat. Maintain a food diary if you have to. Control your cravings for burgers, pizzas, and doughnuts. Although it may seem like the hardest thing to do now, the results will definitely show later.
