My Favorite Dieting Tips

These are my favorite way to diet:

  1. Drink 1 or 2 large glasses of water before you eat your meal.  This will help fill you up before eating too much.
  2. When eating salad, get the dressing on the side,  dip the fork in the dressing so you only get a little bit on the end. You will use only a fraction of the amount of dressing you normally consume.
  3. Take a short walk after you eat so the food can digest, and of course burn a few calories.
  4. When eating dessert, use a smaller dessert plate and don’t select portions larger than the plate itself. Go for the smaller portions or share it with your significant other.
  5. THE MORE VEGETABLES you eat, the better. Vegetables are loaded with vitamins and minerals with reduced amounts of calories.  They are high in fiber and antioxidants. These are the building blocks of a healthy body.
  6. You can warm up with a 5 minutes of cardio exercise to get the blood flowing to your muscles, but you do your real cardio exercise after your workout. When your body exhausts the fuel stored in your system, the body will begin to search for fat to convert to energy.  That last 10-15 minutes of cardio exercise will let you take advantage of your workout to burn more fat.

Eat wisely this holiday season and get that workout in.
