- Eliminate Fast Food
It is crunch time at work now to get everything done before the holidays, and you don’t feel like making food after a busy day at work, but stay away from fast foods! The convenience it offers does not balance out its negative health effects. Besides, you can get healthy, ready-made meals at most supermarkets these days instead of unhealthy, fatty fast foods.
- Say no to Soft Drinks and Fruit Juices
It is common sense that sugary soft drinks are bad for you, but we often perceive fruit juice to be healthy. Most fruit juices contain preservatives and added sugars in order to make them last longer and taste better, making them just as bad as soft drinks. Don’t be fooled by the sugar-free diet cool drinks either, as they are filled with other chemical that are dangerous for your health. The best option is some good old water!
- Try to keep Track of Calories
There are many fancy diets these days, but in the end it all comes down to calories consumed vs. calories burned. If you want to lose weight, count all your calories and make sure that you are burning more than you are consuming.
- Take the Stairs
This does not seem like much, but you will be amazed by the difference taking the stairs once or twice a day can make! This is not only true for the physical calorie burning, but it helps keep you in a healthy mindset as it shows you that it’s not that difficult to make healthy choices.
- Kick up the Cardio
Even if you already have a very good cardio workout, dial it up a notch. Try to make it more intense rather than making it longer, as you will benefit more from short, powerful workouts than tedious, long ones.
- Pump some iron
If you are not already doing this, start lifting some weights as part of your workout. You don’t need to try and be a power lifter, just light-medium weight training can increase your body’s calorie burning function and keep it running for longer (known as the afterburn effect).
- Eat Smaller Meals, more Often
The best way to keep yourself from overeating is by not getting hungry. To keep yourself from feeling hungry, cut down the time between meals by eating small, balanced meals 5 or 6 times a day, rather than 3 big ones, and take the Manna FAT Burner with each meal to help increase metabolism the natural way.
- Make Small Swaps
Start by swopping out simple things like white bread for whole grains, soft drinks for water with lemon, sweets with fruits, etc. For even better results, replace 1 or 2 meals per day with the Manna Low GI Shake to reduce your total daily calorie intake and stay satisfied for longer.
