Healthy Eating Advice for Effective Weight Loss
Obesity is an epidemic in the United States. Many people need to lose large amounts of weight and have no idea how to go about doing it. There are many schools of thought on this particular issue. However, the secret to losing weight begins with the food that you put into your body. It will not matter how much exercising you are doing if you are eating all of the wrong foods. The problem is that millions of people have no clue about what foods will optimize their dieting and help them to reach their weight loss goals. Here are some of the best tips that will assist you in making smart decisions when it comes to eating healthy during your diet.
1. Talk to a nutritionist
A nutritionist is a person who has gone to school and received a degree in nutrition or health. This would be an ideal person for you to talk to before you start a diet. You can talk to the nutritionist about what you are currently eating on a regular basis and how much weight you want to lose. He or she can then create a diet for you that is based on your specific nutritional needs. Some people hurt themselves during a diet because they deprive their bodies of vitamins and minerals that their bodies need to function effectively. A nutritionist can make sure that the food you are eating every day during your diet will provide you with all of the nutrition your body will require to stay healthy and avoid illness.
2. Eat vegetables
Most people were told by their parents that eating veggies is good for them. However, many of these people still avoid veggies as much as they can because they don’t think they taste particularly good. The taste of veggies is definitely an issue that many people can’t seem to get around. However, it is critical that you understand just how essential vegetables are to your overall health. Studies have shown that people who eat vegetables on a daily basis are able to avoid many of the health problems and illnesses that people who do not eat veggies frequently suffer from. Many tasty recipes that include vegetables are offered by HamptonCreek.
3. Carbs are not bad
You may have read a lot of articles that tell you to avoid carbs at all costs. However, carbs are not necessarily a bad thing. Eating a certain amount of rice and bread can actually give your body a boost of energy that it needs to exercise or do some other physical task. However, it is important to consume everything in moderation. Carbs will not have a negative impact on your weight loss as long as you closely monitor how much of them that you eat every day.
4. Drink lots of water
This is good advice for all people. However, it is especially important for you to drink a lot of water every day if you are trying to lose weight. Keeping yourself hydrated will make your body work more efficiently while you are exercising. It will also improve your body’s digestive process.
5. Do not eat fried foods
Fried foods will definitely put on the pounds. It is true that eating the occasional fried food item will not sabotage your diet too badly. However, you should really stay away from anything that is fried until you have reached your personal weight loss goal. Then you can treat yourself by eating a few things that you have been depriving yourself of. It is all a matter of having some willpower.Tammie~
I received complimentary tickets for the purpose of this review. All opinions are 100% my own.
Can you say that you literally have an amusement park in your back yard? I can say that I was lucky enough to have this. I could walk out my yard and look down the street and see the park. It was not until I was older that I realized just how lucky I was. Kennywood Amusement Park will always hold a special place in my and my families heart as that is where my Mom met my Dad. My Mom and I both worked at the same concession stand- Not at the same time of course and where my church always had their summer picnics- Russian Day.
As I enter the park a feeling of excitement comes over me. Whether it was because of all the memories the park holds for me or that I am about to ride my favorite rides or even all of my favorite foods that are just a fingertip away, I am sure to do it it all! I mean the Noah’s Ark squishy tongue that I member from days of long ago is BACK! Yes, Just what I said because they restored it back to the way it was with even the squishy tongue. The awesome roller coasters are still the same from my favorite-the Thunderbolt, The Racer, The Steel Phantom to the Jack rabbit and even a few more. I love them all! From the Merry-Go-Round to the Train. Then you have to mention kiddy land and the other more normal, thriller, exiting wonderful rides such as the Turtle, Barron’s Curve, Music Express and The Pirate and many more. I was thrilled to see the the wonderful potato patch fries are sold at a few other concession stands throughout the park. The lines could could really get way too long when they were only sold at the original potato path stand. My sister-in-law and brother-in-law to my surprise bought us lunch at Johnny Rockets. Which I must say I had the best Cheeseburger I have ever had. Thank you Lisa and Drew!
I am so very Blessed to have this amazing park in my backyard. I urge you that if you are in Pittsburgh that you visit this park because this will be an awesome time for young and old alike. You can purchase tickets at a discount by clicking HERE. A day at Kennywood is unforgettable!
This is a sponsored post written by me on be half of Evite Influencer Program. All opinions are 100% my own.
A lot of my friends think I am a different kind of Pet Parent in that my cats listen to me. Yes, I said they listen to me. My cats are house cats in that mt nerves would be shot if they were outside and I would be wondering are they getting hit by a car or in a fight with another cat or dog or even a coyote. This is the major reason my cats are house cats but that does not leave them wanting for anything. I have made a list of 10 things you need to do this Summer with your cats.
10 things you need to do this Summer with your cats~
- Get your cat that overdue checkup that is so very important to maintaining and make sure that he/she is healthy.
- Take your cat outside to enjoy the sunshine and Summer weather. I take mine out for 10 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes in the evening.
- Give your cat catnip. I have never laughed so hard just watching my cats after they consumed catnip.
- Have a play date. Yes, I said a play date. You would not beleive it but there are several small dogs that live next to and near to us. My cats have taken a liking to them. We actually do have play dates where they play outside and get rid of some pent up energy.
- Make some home made from scratch cat food. Summer is the time for herbs and fresh veggies. This makes the perfect base for cat food.
- Throw a pet themed party. Evite.com has just come out with a pet themed line of invitations, gifting options, notifications and more.
- Adopt a new fur baby. This is the perfect time to head to your local shelter and adopt an older pet or just some that has been up for adoption. All of our pets are rescue pets. The joy they bring us is un-measurable.
- Set up an obstacle course. Not an obstacle course for people but for cats. Set up batting toys for them to play with. Set up balls for them to play with. Also you could set up higher levels for your cats to jump on as they love that.
- Make a pillow pad for a window for your cats to lay in and soak up the Summer sun.
- This last idea is not necessarily a goal to do with your cats but rather the right thing to do. Give to your local animal humane society. Be it cash or give kitty litter, toys or other cat accessories.
