5 Dos and Don’ts of Weight Loss

5 dos and don'ts of weight lossHere are 5 DOs and DON’Ts of weight loss that everyone should be focused on if losing weight and getting into better shape are top priorities. You will find the most difficult part of all this is consistency, but the more often you stick with the process, the more rapidly you’ll develop healthier living habits to guide you through each day. Here are the 5 DOs of weight loss:

DO Drink Lots of Water
This is one of the healthiest habits you can start doing on a daily basis. Replace that soda, energy drink, or Gatorade with 0 calorie water. Not only does water add absolutely nothing to your daily calorie total, but it aides with digestion and helps flush out impurities from the body. Try to drink water with every meal/snack and strive for 6-8 glasses a day.

DO Eat Appropriate Portion Sizes
This is often the most overlooked aspect of the weight loss process. Eating an appropriate portion size will help ensure you are not taking in more food than your body needs. If you are eating to the point of being stuffed, you ate far too much. Serve an appropriate portion size on your plate and eat slow to give your body time to register the amount entering. Combine your appropriate portion size with a large glass of water and you will find yourself eating much less than you used to.

Granted the time it takes to reach your goal is entirely dependent on how much weight you are attempting to lose and also how dedicated you are to the process. Nevertheless, most people expect quick rapid results but this is hardly the case in this situation.

What does this process actually entail?
