There are so many healthy weight loss programs out there today. A lot of them cost more money then some are caring to spend. How about I share with you some ways to lose weight with no out of pocket cost that you wouldn’t normally spend. First and foremost you have to have the desire to want to lose weight. Create that burning desire in you by closing your eyes and picturing yourself in incredible shape, smiling, happy, having fun and getting noticed by everyone. Is that what you want, or do you just want more confidence in yourself and more energy. You can have all this. You just have to change some patterns. Because obviously you have eating habits that you do that have gotten you to where you are.
One of the biggest patterns you can change yourself is just what food you buy in the grocery store. You want to shop for foods that are high in water content such as fresh fruits and vegetables. Now fresh doesn’t mean fresh from a can. It means fresh from the produce stand or fresh produce aisle at your local grocery store. Now special note to remember when eating a lot of foods high in water content is to stay away from foods that are high in sodium (salt). Because too much Sodium can cause water retention and add a few pounds in water weight. So how do you know if what you are eating is high in Sodium? Start getting in the habit of reading those labels on the backs of the food you buy.
While we are on the subject of reading the labels on the back of the foods you buy, here are some of the best things to look for, for healthy weight loss: Foods that are high in fiber, low in fat, low in calories, low in sodium, low in refined sugar (glucose, sucrose, fructose). You do want foods high in water, fiber, quality protein, and complex carbs. Some examples of these are: Fruit, Veggies, Legumes, baked Potato, Broiled Brown Rice, Fresh Fish. Also food containing whole grain as well is extremely good for you such as muesli, oatmeal, and whole grain pasta.
Hopefully this article has helped you be on the road to health weight loss. I hope I have helped educate you on what foods to shop for.
