Episode 101: Five Key Weight Loss Tips
Today’s podcast is about Five tips that can catapult your onset to weight loss and assist you with shredding 10 to 20 pounds of stubborn fat reserves.
Tip number one; reduce the morning calories to 100 or less. You could do this by skipping breakfast and or your latte. Or you can reduce whatever you are doing to 100 calories. Remember coffee and tea are free from calories until you add sweeter, cream and or milk. Black coffee with a dash of organic sugar or high grade real maple syrup, will help you gradually reduce your standard routine. Then you can slowly eliminate the sweeter and then the coffee. Coffee and tea are appetite suppressants, so depending on your health goals, you may need this crutch for awhile.
Tip number two; eat the bulk of your calories at lunch. And if you can, push lunch until 3 or 4pm
Tip number three; never snack on processed foods. And eliminate snacking. If you have to snack because you are feeling weak then eat an apple or a banana or celery or carrots.
Tip number four; drink 16 to 32 ounces of water three times per day. A good time to do this is once when you get up from a night’s sleep, then about 3 hours after the first one and the third around 1 hour prior to your last meal.
Tip number five; walk 30 minutes per day everyday. This is in addition to everything else you do activity wise.
Bonus tip one…your last meal of the day under 500 calories or this meal should be less than your total lunch calories. If you are going to break this rule eat it 3 hours before you go to bed. This is very important!
Bonus tip two...5 days per week are very regimented and your days off from work or pick two days a week where you have some freedom. This is not a license to cheat but there is a sense of freedom, for example you could have a latte or go out to breakfast. But you would still drink your water, walk, workout etc. And remember the majority of your calories would still be midday.
So that’s what I have for you this week. My name is Robyne Hemingway and you are listening to Hemingway’s Heart.
