Losing Holiday Weight

With the holidays over and the New Year upon us, now is as good of time as any to actually begin your annual new year's resolution to shed some of those pounds. Not to simply make the resolution, or verbally commit to begin, but to get off your rear end and actually do something. Follow these simple suggestions and you will be well on your way to a new and improved you for 2008.

Exercise - Yes, I know exercise can be tedious, dull, and exhausting but that just means you are doing the wrong kind of exercise. Exercise is about doing physical activity that you enjoy and shouldn't be something that you dread. Choose something you enjoy doing such as tennis, dancing, or swimming. Otherwise, you will never stick with it.

Smaller Portions - Weight loss works very simply; you have to burn more calories than you consume. Coupled with exercise, eating smaller portions will allow you to start losing weight. Just because a restaurant serves you a specific portion certainly does not mean you have to eat the whole thing; take the leftovers home. A key to eating smaller portions is eating slower. This will keep you from overeating and your stomach can register when it is full.

Healthier Eating - Let's be honest; we are not going to eat super healthy every minute of everyday and nor should you. Restricting yourself from your favorite foods and desserts will only make you want them more. So you just need to be smarter about how much of your favorites you consume. Eat just one piece rather than half the pie. If you are forced to eat out at a fast-food restaurant or similar establishment, try a healthier option such as a salad. Cut back on sugar and replace your diet soda or energy drink with water.

Weight Loss Supplement - In conjunction with daily physical activity and more conscientious eating, a weight loss supplement such as Akavar 20/50 can be an effective weight loss tool. Akavar helps curb hunger and thus enables you to eat less calories so you can burn more calories.
