When the clock hits midnight and 2014 rolls in, many are going to worrying about new years resolution. A new year is a fresh start, and many use this fresh start to convince themselves to start dieting. But even those with the best of intentions may eventually find themselves giving up on their diets. Follow these three helpful tips and you can make your weight loss plan a success.
Set realistic goals
When setting your dieting goals, be realistic. Instead of aiming to lose a high number of pounds every month, try and lose one or two pounds a week. It might even be best to forgo a dieting goal and instead focus on the process. Dedicated yourself to working out regularly, or walking a mile every day. The weight loss will follow.
Enjoy healthier foods
Eating well is the first step towards dieting. Lowering your total calorie intake by eating plenty of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains can lead to a happier, healthier you. You can get your weight loss started by:
* Eating a healthy breakfast every day
* Eating four servings of vegetables every day
* Eat three servings of fruit a day
* Cutting back on sugar
Get active, stay active
While dieting can help you to shed pounds, regular exercise will help you even more. A good way to lose body fat is through steady aerobic exercise, such a brisk 30 minute walk every day.
