Losing weight can have an incredible impact on your health. If you’re looking to effectively lose some unwanted weight, try these seven methods!
- Skip the liquid sugar.
You probably already know that sugary sodas and energy drinks can sabotage your weight loss efforts. But did you know that a lot of fruit juices are also packed with sugar? Be sure to read labels carefully so you know exactly what you’re drinking. Stick with water most of the time and drink plenty of your favorite Yoli drinks, which are sweetened with stevia rather than sugar.
Exercise burns calories, but that’s not the only reason it’s a useful weight loss tool! Physical activity also helps build lean muscle mass, strengthens your bones and muscles, and improves your ability to do the things you love. It’s a great way to amplify your weight loss efforts!
- Pack your lunch.
Even the best of intentions can falter when lunchtime rolls around and there’s a fast-food restaurant just down the street. To stay on-track with your weight loss goals, pack a healthy lunch ahead of time and bring it to work. Making the healthy decision ahead of time will make it much easier to follow through!
- Drink more water.
Water is a great tool for weight loss for a couple of reasons. First, drinking water before a meal can help you avoid overeating. This study found people who drank water before a meal lost more weight than people who did not. Second, drinking water could boost your metabolism, according to this study. Finally, water can help you feel more alert and energetic, giving you the opportunity to be more active, so drink up!
- Partner up.
Losing weight is easier when you’re not doing it alone! Research suggests that you’re more likely to lose weight—and keep it off—when you have other people working with you. You can support and encourage each other, as well as share recipes and tips for success. Whether you decide to lose weight with a friend, a family member, a coworker, or another member of Yoli Nation, you’ll find it easier to succeed if you pair up with someone!
- Eat healthy fats.
Take the idea that all fat is bad for weight loss and throw it out the window. Healthy fats, such as polyunsaturated fat, monounsaturated fat, and omega-3 fatty acids, play a key role in your health, so you don’t want to cut them out of your diet. They can also help you feel full so you don’t overeat later, so enjoy them in moderate amounts!
Stress is a considerable factor in weight gain. It can increase your appetite and drive you toward unhealthy comfort foods. It can also impact your willpower, making it more difficult to stick with healthy decisions long-term. Take at least a few minutes every day to relax and recharge.
