Easy Ways to Lose Weight

Watch the video and listen to what is specific to you. Below are three main tips which we feel can work for everyone. It's not rocket science, just good old fashioned common sense, that anyone can adapt their life style to accommodate. The golden rule - if you want to see change you have got to make change!   

 Eat right post-workout
People are notorious for overestimating how many calories they burn during physical activity, which is often far less than actual calories burned. When you overestimate the calories you burn during exercise, you may eat more than you need, making weight loss and maintenance difficult. High-intensity exercise may drive women to eat more, and moderate exercise may be the key to easier weight control. A safe bet post workout is to drink a protein shake or combine protein with carbs and a little natural fat, (tuna sandwich made with whole wheat bread & mayonnaise).  
Use the Red, Orange and Green rule
At each meal include one food that is any of these colours. By focusing on these foods, you'll be sure to get some produce on your plate and won't have space on your plate for higher-calorie fare. Try to eat white meats and oily fish only, but go mad with the colour when it comes to vegetables! Use salads at lunch times as a quick and easy meal to prepare and something you can eat anywhere.
Be a Heavy Drinker
Water is essential for keeping the body hydrated and we're actually more likely to retain "water weight" by not drinking enough of it rather than by having too much. The needs of each person will be different, but the general recommended daily amount is 6 large drinking glasses. the best advise here is to invest in a quality drinking bottle and sip water constantly to avoid the "bloated feeling," which occurs when you drink too much too quickly. Water also takes up space in your stomach so you'll feel fuller while taking in less calories.
