These 8 tips will help you on your way to achieving your goals and maintaining your results.
There’s no magic potion or secret formula. We all know eating less (of the bad things) and moving more (Output vs Input), is the key to weight loss.
We all know the old tale of breakfast is the most important meal of the day. These sayings don’t materialise. There is absolute truth in this statement. Read GourmetFuel’s top tips for breakfast and how it’s a vital lifestyle change to achieving your desired weight loss.
Control Your Environment
It may seem like a no brainer, but controlling what is around you is a dynamic tool in keeping your eyes on the prize. Everything from what your cupboards are stocked with to making conscious decisions when going to a restaurant – so avoiding ‘all-you-can-eat’ restaurants is for the best!!!
Manage Your Portions
Don’t fool yourself. Educate yourself on what proper portions are. Use GourmetFuel pre-portioned balanced meals to ensure you are getting exactly what is required. Our meals are also great in educating you with the visual of what a calorie content portion looks like.
Don't Focus on the Numbers
Avoid over weighing yourself. Hitting the scales too often can give inconsistent readings and often be heart breaking when you have a goal to achieve. I know we often feel an accomplishment when the number drops but try focusing on how you are feeling, if your clothes are a little looser and how you are taking the stairs each day as opposed to the lift, with your improved fitness.
Be Mindful of your Health
Starving yourself and depriving your body of fuel can have dramatic health implications not to mention how unsatisfying living your day like this can be. Avoid fad diets that are not beneficial….promising quick fixes is fiction. Understanding what nutrition your body needs and structuring your meals each day is the key to succeeding in your weight loss efforts. GourmetFuel’s in-house nutritionists can guide and advise on the best meal plan options for you.
Satisfy Cravings with Healthier Options
We all have cravings and those ‘treats’ that we often over-indulge in. Trying to satisfy your needs with healthier options can help settle your over-indulgence. Maintaining a healthy mind-set is difficult if you are constantly longing for your treats. Have a sweet tooth? Try some of GourmetFuel’s 200 kCal sweet snacks!
What You Drink
Alcohol or your daily coffee, there are calorie contributions from all. Don’t forget they add to your daily intake. Read our articles about Rethink your Drink and Drinking your Calories to learn more!
Quit Fad Diets
Fad diets set you up for failure. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. A fad diet is a diet that promises quick weight loss through what is usually an unhealthy and unbalanced diet. Get your basic nutrition on track and know that achieving healthy weight loss is feasible without attempting to change your blood pH level!
