No matter where you are in your weight loss journey, you’ve probably experienced the common challenges we all face: temptation that takes you off track, inconsistent activity, and a lack of support that can cause you to lose hope and motivation. The team at Passer Restorative Therapies has put together 5 helpful tips to help you reach your weight-loss goals – faster, more effectively, and with more confidence than ever before.
Our trusted weight-loss tips:
1. Embrace the activities you enjoy
Whether it’s going for walks outside, riding a bike with your kids, jogging on a treadmill, or trying an online exercise video, find a way to keep moving that fits your lifestyle and interests. When you enjoy an activity, you’ll be more motivated to keep it up over the long term.
2. Stick with a schedule
Schedules make it easier to embrace good habits any time of the year, but especially during the colder months, when motivation is scarce. Planning your meals and exercise and sticking to a routine is a great way to make your goals a reality.
3. Create a social gathering strategy
From baked goods and buffets to sugary cocktails, it can be hard to eat well when you’re gathering with friends. At parties or dinners out, go for healthier foods, like fruits and veggies, first, and limit the not-so-good stuff. It also helps to distract yourself with good company and great conversation!
4. Put a healthy spin on comfort food
Your family’s favorite foods don’t to be full of fat and calories. From broth-based soups to veggie-packed pastas, there are hundreds of great recipes out there for a healthier spin on your comforting favorites.
5. Seek outside support
When your weight-loss motivation is low, or your efforts seem to be falling short, find a friend with similar goals to keep you on track. Or, you can work with the weight management and nutrition experts at Dr. Passer’s office to put together a personalized plan. You can count on our team to support you along the way!
