Add Vegetables to Meat
Meat is loaded with calories and often with fat. Some people cannot get over their addiction to a super-sized burger. If you happen to be one of those people, you can enjoy your juicy burger minus half the calories and half the fat. Here’s how. Pick up a package of natural, grass-fed or organic lean ground beef to prepare your burger at home. Mix the beef with fresh chopped mushrooms, shredded carrots, chopped onions, and and cooked brown rice. About 50% of the mixture should be ground beef. Season with your favorite spices and mix well. Shape into medium sized beef patties and place in the oven on broil or put them on a grill. You will find that your burger is tasty and filling. Plus you get the added health benefits of less fat and less calories while consuming more vitamins and nutrients through the added vegetables. This is a leading option among healthy weight loss habits.
It is hard to believe that most people still don’t drink enough water or know the best way to drink water to support healthy weight loss. You really need to pay attention when and how much water you drink. No matter what you have heard, liquids are not liquids. Coffee, juice and soda do not make up for failure to drink pure water. Use water to support your weight loss efforts by drinking a full glass of water every morning upon waking before eating breakfast. For best results drink the water at room temperature or slightly warm. Do not drink ice cold water when you wake up. Through out the rest of your day, drink a glass of water before every meal and every snack. Add a twist of lemon or lime if you need some flavor. Keep track of how much water you drink and make sure you get a least 8 glasses a day. Remember that water is the perfect zero calorie beverage.
Eat an Apple or Two
Snacking between meals is a major factor in obesity. You can’t lose weight if you’re constantly eating and failing to exercise. It is actually easier for most people to make healthier eating choices than it is to get out and exercise. So begin your weight loss efforts by looking at your eating habits. Keep only healthy snacks in your home and office. Apples are a top choice because they are nutritious, filling and convenient to eat on the run. Keep an apple or two handy so you’ll always have a low calorie healthy snack available the moment you begin to feel hungry. If you don’t like apples or you get bored with them, simply alternate with other fruit such as pears and bananas.
