Simple Weight Loss Success Tips
- Eat Breakfast within 1 hour of waking up. Eating breakfast first thing in the morning will jump start your metabolism by at least 10%. Blood sugar and insulin levels will also become regulated, you’ll be more likely to eat a wholesome breakfast rather choosing unhealthy food out of hunger, and it improves your cognitive ability for the day.
- Drink 1-2 cups of water before every meal. Water helps with digestion, aides weight loss by boosting metabolism, and helps you feel full so you end up eating less.
- Do NOT skip meals. This is so important. When you a skip meal, your body goes in starvation mode. When this happens, your body tries to conserve by storing extra fat. I always recommend eating FOOD instead of drinking a shake but there are times when that is not possible.If you do not have time to eat, have a meal replacement shake.
