Losing weight seems like a daunting task, but I can assure you it is possible. I’ve seen people from all kinds of backgrounds and different stages of life be successful in losing weight and becoming healthier. Here are my top three simple but effective tips:
Structure your meals to have lean protein, vegetables, and water at every meal.
Do both resistance training and cardio.
Sleep well, and sleep enough.
Have Lean Protein, Vegetables, and Water at Every Meal
You can have other things, but you must eat those things. If you begin with those foods and fill up on them, you likely won’t be starving for a lot of other things.
Do Both Resistance Training and Cardio
You don’t have to be fanatical about either but be sure to include both of them in your week. Resistance training can be bodyweight or external weights like dumbbells, barbells,
Sleep Well, and Sleep Enough
Your body will not perform optimally if you aren’t sleeping well. Not to mention all the other health and cognitive benefits of getting proper rest.
This sounds simplistic, but there are many nuances to all of these things. You will have questions, but you will find the answers to these questions as you go. Just start here and have faith in your body’s ability to become healthier as your habits become healthier. Good luck!
