Have you ever wondered why weight loss has to be so hard?
Well, with fitness “gurus” telling you to eat 1,000 calories a day or convincing you to jump on board extreme fad diets, it’s no wonder weight loss gets such a bad rep.
But weight loss doesn’t have to be difficult or painful—and it never should be!
Here you’ll find a list of 15 simple tips you can start using today to start painlessly losing weight.
1. Cheat Smart
You’ve probably heard about Cheat Days, magical days where you eat everything in the world with zero consequences. Let’s be realistic and tone it down a notch. Once you put food into your body, it has to go somewhere! Think Cheat Meals. Follow the 90/10 rule—90 percent of the food you eat is healthy weight-loss contributing foods, and 10 percent of the food has no diet restrictions. This way you maintain your sanity without destroying your week of hard work.
2. Begin the Day with a Big Breakfast
Kicking off your morning with a substantial healthy breakfast will help you start the day the right way. You’ve just fasted for 7 or more hours! Your body needs nutritious foods to replenish your energy and fuel your body. If you feed your body too little, you’ll be hungry again way before lunch time.
