The new year is in full swing and now is a great time to check in and reflect on your resolutions and goals for the year.
What happened to your resolutions in the new year, like eating healthier? Have you been consistent with your goals or have some things fallen aside due to the stressors of everyday life? If so, then April is also a great month to get started again!
Think about it, why is it difficult to implement your resolution of “eating healthier”, – “paying attention to a healthy diet”, – “exercising more” . Could it be that you’re aiming too high? Can you break down your resolutions into smaller, more achievable goals?
Here are three simple tips that are easy to integrate into everyday life, they do not require too much change and bring you closer to your goal step by step:
- Eat three main meals a day! If every meal contains a balanced proportion of carbohydrates and protein, you can avoid cravings and snacks in between meals.
- Schedule a longer fasting break of 10-12 h between the evening meal and breakfast. During the fasting break, your body sustains itself from stored nutrients. coordinate the release of fatty acids from the fatty tissue and make them available as a food source for muscle cells and organs.
- Drink at least 60-64 ounces of water throughout the day! Drinking water helps the body to lose weight. While metabolizing and breaking down fat, substances are released that can be more easily excreted through the kidneys and bladder .
If the amount of water seems to be too much at the beginning, then try to start slowly by drinking a glass of water more each day than the day before.
