You just need to be more careful with what you put in your salad.

Yes, there are practical ways to lose weight. You don’t have to go through the painful process of going on a diet. You don’t have to starve yourself or spend a lot of money on a weight loss program. You just need to make some little changes in your daily life and you can lose weight easily.

According to a nutritionist expert, Holley Johnson, there are some easy ways to cut calories so that you can lose weight fast and easy.

If you’ve ever tried to lose weight, you know it takes effort. There are, however, some strategies that have proven results without taking up too much time or altering your daily routine.

These tips require very little adjustment on your part. All you have to do is to combine these easy tips with your diet and exercise to see quick weight loss results.

Watch What You Put Into Your Coffee

You need to watch your coffee calorie. The cream and sugar you put into your coffee can make or break your diet.

Adding milk, especially whole milk or cream, to your coffee can cause your daily caloric intake to skyrocket.

You are better off using skimmed milk in your coffee. Whole milk or cream has more calories than skimmed milk.  Adding whole milk or cream to your coffee can immediately increase your caloric intake to about 400. On the other hand, you’d only be taking in about 135 calories with skimmed milk. That makes a lot of difference especially if you’re trying to lose weight.

Most of the time, coffee calorie is overlooked. You’re too busy watching what you eat but you forget that what you put into your coffee adds up to the calories as well. Making this minor adjustment to your coffee habit can help you lose weight easily. You just need to watch what you put into your coffee.

So the next time you want to have coffee, reach out for the skimmed milk. Take it easy with the sugar as well. Pass on the white sugar and try some unrefined sugar. You should also pass on the artificial sweeteners. They will only make your coffee taste so much sweeter, which will put you in more trouble.

Artificial sweeteners will just excite your sweet tooth and you’ll crave for something sweeter than that. That could get you trouble if you’re trying to lose weight. If you really want your sweet, try putting some raw, unprocessed honey. The whole point is that you need to watch what you put into your coffee. That’s not too hard to do.

Walk Around

Holly also recommends that you walk around your house. This won’t take too much time to do and you can lose weight even without trying so hard.

If you did this for ten minutes every work day, about three miles per hour, you burn about a thousand calories a month and lose three pounds in a year.

You don’t need to do anything major with this easy tip. You don’t even need to get into some gym clothes and do some strenuous workouts. Basically, you just get up and walk around your house at three miles per hour for just ten minutes. You can easily do this while on you’re chatting on your phone.

Take It Easy With The Salad Dressing

This last tip is very easy to do and it’s also an eye-opener tip. It’s what you should do each time you eat your salads. And since you are trying to lose weight, you’re surely eating a lot of salads these days.

When eating your salad, keep the dressing on the side and dip the tines of the fork into the dressing …

This is a lot better than drowning the salad with dressing. With this easy tip, you will be able to cut about 500 calories easily.

These are easy tips for you to combine with your diet and exercise. Yes, they are very doable but you still need to watch your diet and you still need to exercise to lose weight.

You don’t have to subject yourself to such hardships as you try so hard to drop some pounds. Dieting is hard enough as it is. You cannot give up the little things just to lose weight. If you cherish your coffee moments, you don’t have to give them up. If you’re looking forward to eating your salad, go ahead and enjoy it. You just need to be more careful with what you put in them. In the long run, it’s going to make a huge difference in your caloric intake.

Practical Ways To Stick To Your Diet

There definitely isn’t a smooth and easy path to weight loss.

The hardest part about dieting is sticking to it. It’s easy to decide to lose weight. But it’s not easy to stick to it. After a couple of days of dieting, you just want to stop and go back to your old ways. You end up hungry and frustrated because you just can’t keep up with your diet.

Well, the reality of the matter is that there’s no easy way to stick to a weight loss plan. There’s also no short cut to it. The road to weight loss can be long and tiresome but it doesn’t have to be futile. So long as you stay focused on the results and the benefits of weight loss, you can survive the long journey to it. Keeping these things in mind can help you stay on track.

Have A Plan

Making that decision to (finally) lose weight is not enough for you to survive the whole process of it. Coming up with that decision is the easiest part of it all. It’s the actual task of doing it that makes the whole process hard.

So how can you survive that? Well for starters,  you need to have a plan to go about your weight loss. Weight loss just doesn’t happen soon as you decide to embark on it. You  need to have a road map to your success. You need to have a well-thought of plan.

Your success is highly dependent on your plan. And your plan will determine how doable it is for you to lose weight. One of the reasons as to why most people fail to stick to their weight loss plan is that they don’t take the time to create a plan. What usually happens is that they immediately deprive their body of food and eventually nutrients. The sudden deprivation hardly gives the body time to adjust to the weight loss. It instead shocks the body. The suddenness sends all the wrong signals to the mind and body. With all the wrong signals, the mind and body just give up.

A well-thought off plan gives the mind and body time to adjust to the weight loss process. It gradually helps you get use to the whole process. The gradual adjustment makes it easier for you to stick to your diet plan. The truth of the matter is that you cannot gradually adjust to anything without a plan. You just can’t succeed without a plan.

Prioritize

If you really want to stick to your weight loss plan, you need to know what your priorities are. This way, you won’t easily be swayed by others let go off your plan. No matter how much your friends or relatives tempt you, you’re strong and confident enough to say no.

Once you decide to lose weight and once you create your road map to success, you need to always focus your priorities. Make a list of all your priorities. Post your list where you can see it everyday. This way, you are always reminded of your priorities. It will help you stay focused.

There will always be people that will tempt you. You can’t avoid that. But you have the choice to say yes or no. If you don’t focus on your priorities, you’ll end up giving in to your friends and family members all the time. But if you know what your priorities are, it’s easy for you to say no. You won’t easily give in to any temptations if you have your priorities in mind at all times. No matter how much your friends tempt you, you won’t have to struggle to say no. This will eventually give you the staying power to stick to your plan.

Seek Support

You will find it easier to stick to your diet if you seek support. Getting some kind of medical or professional support gives you enough will power to stick to your weight loss plan. This way, you’re also safely guided to lose weight.

It also wouldn’t hurt to have some kind of support from family members and friends. It counts a lot to have a good team of folks cheer on you. That can get you going for a very long time.

See Yourself Succeed

One of the most practical ways for you to stick to your diet plan is to see yourself succeed. There definitely isn’t a smooth and easy path to weight loss. At some point, you will be discouraged. There will be times when you just want to forget the whole thing. After all, overcoming the challenges of weight loss is really not that easy. If it were, then weight loss wouldn’t be such a big deal. But it is.

Seeing yourself succeed can subconsciously help you stick to your weight loss plan. Envisioning a leaner and fitter version of yourself can inspire and motivate you. This way, you will be able to stick to your weight loss plan for a very long time.
