When you get dressed in the morning, or undressed at night, do you look at yourself and think that you might be a bit overweight. I do it, cause I am overweight. I am 5’2, and weigh in at 165 pounds, and just 4 years ago, back when I was 20 I weighed in at 130. That is 35 pounds in just 4 years UGH! Well, I guess that is what 2 kids will do to you, now don’t get me wrong, I am by far not the mother, I am the father, and well I was on the see food diet, I saw left over food, and I ate it. Which, you should not do, I am proof to that haha.
Now, me and you both want to lose weight, right? I do, so I have been searching the web for the best tips possible to lose weight. I wasn’t looking for those Atkins style diets either, I don’t want to starve to death before I lose weight. The South Beach diet is pretty much the same. I have however found quite a few interesting little tips on my search though, and I would like to share these with you.
Losing weight tips
1: Make sure you drink plenty of water, and not sodas, even diet soda isn’t good for you
2: Don’t just eat healthy, eat right. In order for your metabolism to work for you, instead of against you is to eat plenty during the day. I’m not talking about all day, I am talking about 5 meals a day. Now when I say meal, I don’t mean a meal that will fill you up and make you unbutton your pants. A meal can consist of an apple and a piece of cheese.
3: Exercise for at least 30 minutes. If exercise is a bit to much for you, go walking for 30 minutes, anything that gets your heart pumping a little bit will help you burn off some of those calories.
4: If you have that special someone, this tip is fun. Sex, you can burn about 5 calories a minute during sex. So figure if you have 30 minutes of sex, you can burn about 150 calories, not bad for something that feels good eh?
5: This one is for you breastfeeding mothers, and you might already know this, but if you don’t. You can burn up to 500 calories a day, with just feeding your baby. I guess it is a good benefit, especially since you are the one who went through that labor.
6: One of the best tips that I have found, is really to find the “right” diet plan for YOU. A diet plan will keep you in order, and help you on your way to losing 20+ pounds fast and easy. I have found the diet plan for me just the other day, Strip That Fat, a diet plan that consists of 80% diet, and 20% exercise. Their web based meal generator sets up 5 meals a day for you, so no more having to spend a ton of time figuring out what will be best to eat for you on that day!
