Losing Weight the Right Way with Nutrilite

The fact that weight loss is one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions every year suggests just how big a struggle some people find it. Nutrilite has some helpful advice for you when embarking on a health kick this January. Set a specific goal – Just saying that you want to lose weight isn’t enough; set yourself a number that you want to achieve that is safe and attainable. Use a realistic timetable and set mini targets that you can hit on your way to your final goal weight. Use a food journal – Many people are grazers and consume calories in-between meals that they do not even think about. Writing a log of everything you eat ensures you can keep track of how your diet is going, it will help you see where and when you are coming across problems and it may encourage you to put down the chocolate bar if you know you are going to have to record it later! Stay healthy – Don’t let your hard work become unravelled by getting sick and abandoning your exercise regime. You are up to 80% more likely to get a cold in winter so making sure your immune system is in tip top shape is vital. Garlic has been used for centuries for its health benefits, including strengthening the constitution and improving resistance to illness. If you’d like to avoid the unpleasant odour side effects then try taking Nutrilte Garlic* which is an affordable supplement alternative. Avoid comfort food – Sometimes in winter it is easy to get caught up consuming excessive amounts of food and wine whilst bundled up indoors by the fire. Start small when forming healthy eating habits, cut out a few unhealthy foods at a time and use a nutritionally balanced meal replacement such as Positrim Crème Mix Meal Replacement* to start you off, then gradually replace it with healthy meal options. Keep Your Calories Up – To eat nothing or very little, reduces the intake of essential nutrition, vitamins, minerals, proteins and essential fatty acids. If you cut back too severely on your calorific intake your body can go into starvation mode causing your metabolic rate to drop and your weight loss to slow down. Making sure you are getting an adequate number of calories for your age, weight and gender ensures you will see the best results. Stick to it! – Rome wasn’t built in a day and your fabulous new body won’t be either. The key to success is not expecting results over night. Reward yourself along the way as you meet milestones. Make sure these rewards are not food based, instead reward yourself with a bubble bath or a facial.
