- Stay away from detox or skinny teas, fad diets and waist trainers. They are expensive and a total waist of money. Firstly, our liver and kidneys naturally ‘detox’ our body we don’t need an expensive tea or juice to do that. Fad diets are restrictive and unsustainable, and you will end up back at square one or worse than where you started. Waist trainers just do not work, plain and simple.
- Take small steps. There’s no point going from zero to hero in the space of 2 weeks. Instead take small more sustainable steps. For example, instead of switching your fry to a kale smoothie, why not have your sausage and bacon with some spinach and avocado? Instead of joining 6 classes a week, why not try 2 classes and go for a long walk 2 days. Increase your water intake from 500ml to 1L. These are all small steps that will result in big changes.
- Stay hydrated. Flush all that water out of your system. It’ll improve your complexion, energy levels, and mood as well as so many other things. Water is king 😊 Aim for 2L a day but again give yourself an achievable aim.
- Add in instead of eliminating. I’m so used to hearing what people are ‘giving up’ namely: Bread, Gluten, Dairy, Sugar, Alcohol. Why not add in more vegetables, fruit, water, wholegrains?
6.Make SMART goals.Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Time Specific
E.g I would like to lose 1 pound a week until the end of March. This will be a total of 12lbs.
This is specific as we are giving an exact weight loss goal. It is measurable on a weighing scales.It is achievable and realistic. There is also a time it has to be achieved by making it time specific.
‘I want to lose weight’ would not be a smart goal.
