There are two things that frustrate the heck out of a dieter. And they are that despite sticking to a diet plan, we are not losing weight and stuck on a weight loss plateau, or worse, we are gaining weight! And it’s tempting to give up when we find ourselves in any of these situations. But a better choice would be to try our tips that jumpstart weight loss.
5 Ways to Jumpstart Weight Loss
1. Listen to hunger cues
Maintaining a diet regimen once the newness has worn off and enthusiasm begins to wane is a challenge. Be sure to check yourself: Are you eating because you’re hungry or are you eating for other reasons? Your body will tell you, but you need to know how to read the cues to know when it’s not head hunger and how to measure your body’s hunger signals.
2. Understand health food claims
Most people now know it’s a good idea to carefully scan labels on food products before buying. The advice is sound, but there is a bit more to it than that. Health halo terms and good PR confuse people, and there are a few tricks that you need to understand, too.
3. Be an informed consumer
Once you’re in the supermarket, there are other traps you can fall into. Just one example is that the calorie-counts on the nutrition facts label may be way off. If knowledge is power, help yourself by entering the food market as an even more informed consumer.
4. Use a goals checklist
If successful weight loss or breaking a weight loss stall are tops on your to-do list, then you might want to come up with a plan on how to proceed. Creating a weight loss goals checklist might be just what you need!
5. Boost your metabolism naturally
Sometimes it’s hard to get started on a diet. So it’s encouraging to know that there are foods that can speed up your metabolism. A speedy metabolism is a sure fire way to burn off calories and shed unwanted pounds!
