7 Points To a Slimmer You

In today’s world, the physical appearance of a person plays an important role in society. Right or wrong, it seems that in order to fit into particular groups, you have to be slim or sexy. The waist line has become one of the many indicators of being slim and healthy. Since there are times that discrimination cannot be avoided, many are striving hard to improve their appearance as well as their lifestyles.

Take a look at these seven simple ways to become slimmer.

1) Set a realistic and measureable target.
Set a deadline on your goal but in doing so, make it realistic to achieve. As an example, don’t target to lose 50 lbs in 1 month since that is impossible and suicidal. You will end up discouraged.

Instead, make the 50 lbs reduction as your long term goal and you can set 1-2lb reduction per week. Setting unrealistic goals sets yourself up to fail and causes most people to give up on their plans in the early stages.

2) Start one step at a time.
Don’t rush. Begin by slowly cutting down your food intakes, specially the bad – less nutritional food. When you are comfortable, you can start a little exercise. Like running for 5 to 10 minutes a day and then increasing the intensity of your work-out as you become used to it.

Always begin any new work out plan in small increments – and a word to the wise, it is always best to check with your physician before starting a new plan of any kind.

3) Choose the right foods
Start by cutting out those bad foods like candies, cookies, ice creams, cakes, junk foods, soda and other sweets and goodies that make you happy. They are unhealthy. Instead, eat more fruits and veggies as a substitute.

Moreover, reduce your carbohydrate intake since you cannot cut them down completely. Carbohydrates are needed by the body for energy. For a healthier consumption, eat whole wheat and brown carbs instead of white breads and pastas. A key with breads, rice and pastas is to always go dark.

4) Have an appropriate breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because eating a nice breakfast helps to provide sufficient energy throughout the day.

In addition, we have been asleep for about eight hours. Thus, eating a breakfast means filling your empty stomach. This is actually what is needed in order to kick start your metabolism system into action.

5) Build your muscles
Muscles are what we need in our body because more calories are being burned by the muscles as compared to fats. Thus, we need to exercise. The good news is that we really don’t have to go to the gym and work-out to lessen our body fats.

We can begin with simple exercises in the home. The point is that for many of us – going to the gym is a luxury that we simply cannot afford in the way of time and or money.

By incorporating our exercise or workout into simple routines that we can do at home, we will be more likely to keep up with our plans.

6) Control your food intake
It is really advisable to make sure that you are accurate in the actual serving size of your food. In addition, leave portions every time you eat. By doing so, you are exercising your ability to control.

Forget about what you were taught as a child – you know, the part about eating everything on your plate. Thus, it will be easier to manage your food intake and achieve your desired weight loss.

7) Choose things that you enjoy
Whether its foods or activities, select those that you like the most and then you’ll see that getting slim is not that difficult. But remember to select those that are beneficial for your body.

If you prefer a fast paced walk to jogging or running, then walk. If you enjoy swinging and playing in the park with your kids, then do that. Or maybe you like taking your dog for walks or you enjoy a particular sport like tennis or softball. The point is, if you make it fun instead of work, you will get in shape while doing a fun activity.

Following the lists above, you will notice substantial changes on your weight in due time.
