1. Always have a ‘big’ breakfast
No more cereal, get plenty of protein and fat in at breakfast. Scrambled eggs and some steak or good quality sausages will keep you fuller for longer than any fortified cereal will.
2. EAT MORE (and more regularly)
Three good snacks and 3 nutrient packed meals will get you where you want to be. Mixed nuts instead of crisps and chocolate will satisfy those cravings.
3. Say no to starch
Fats don’t make you fat, poor quality carbs do! Swap things like white breads and pasta for wholewheat – if you must have them at all. Just don’t over indulge.
4. Lift weights
Yes! Hit the gym! The muscle you build will improve your performance and help to burn fat.
5. Think before you eat!
Don’t just stuff yourself, choose things that taste good and are good for you. Also, take your time when you eat- chew more, you’ll stay fuller for longer!
6. Have fun once in a while
If you ignore your cravings for too long you’ll be miserable and may fall off your plan forever. Splurge reasonably – a SLICE of pizza, not the whole thing.
7. Go low-carb
It’s the easiest way to drop weight fast. It’ll be tough at first- but the results will speak for themselves.
8. HIIT (high intensity interval training)
Alternate between intense exercise and small amounts of rest- it’s much more bearable than a long run- the results are great- and you’ll be finished faster whilst burning more fat.
9. Never have sweetened drinks
But go ahead and have a glass of wine every now and then- but everything in moderation!(Glass a week, not a glass a day)
10. Fats aren’t scary
It helps you feel full, satisfies your appetite and you really need it. Of course, make sensible choices and choose good fats.
