So you hit the New Years party with enthusiasm as you strolled around telling everyone you were going to get the body you’ve always wanted, no bullshit.
According to Forbes, 8% of New Year’s resolutions succeed.
Cut out the weekend alcohol
Summer is all about the party, but preparing by partying it up at the weekend isn’t going to shock your body into changing a thing. You need to look at yourself and decide if you are going to achieve the goal. A great way to start is to drop those empty calories at the weekend and we’ll do this by having a look at what that alcohol generally entails.
- More calories consumed in food, the munchies during and after a boozy night out.
- Terrible Sleep habits
- Recovery and lack of exercise.
Put those things together it will undo everything good you did during the week.
It could be a salad or it could be a pizza, the easiest thing to forget is how much of everything we can eat. You are trying to achieve a calorie deficit, you could undo that from taking a bit too much of the caesar salad no matter how light it is. Nobody REALLY wants to count calories throughout the day but it could be the key to unlocking the weight loss you are after.
It may also help you take a look at your current diet in terms of macros. I don’t suggest that this is all done by the gram but some counting might just keep you honest.
Don’t get caught out with drinks
Coffee is probably the biggest killer, I’m sure most will have their favorite twist from Costa or Starbucks but before you know it the daily calorie is crushed with a sugary mocha or latte.
A small mocha could be over 300 calories and that is a meal if you’re making it right, don’t waste it and don’t fill up your diet with sugary drinks.
Learn to love soup
Soup can have the magical hunger suppressant on something far more calorific with it’s a combination of liquid and veg and meats. Could you deal with swapping the lunchtime sandwich for a tin of soup?
A benefit of this is you and start crushing your veggie’s quota for the day without even having to try, head to the soup aisle and see what takes your fancy.
Rebalance the plate
Turn your plate into the measuring chart for the food you are eating. Instead of making the meat and carbs the star players in each meal flip it on its head. 75% veg will do you the world of good, meat is especially carbs are the treat’s when cooking and the vegetables are great for nutrients and filling you up without costing all the calories your carbs will.
