Small changes, big difference

Posted: July 10, 2016 in Healthy Living

Many people believe that you have to make huge sacrifices to lose weight.  In some cases that’s true but, for most people, a small change in your lifestyle can make a huge impact on weight loss and healthy living.  Here are a few tips you can use to help spark your weight loss fire.

  • Cut or reduce your sugar intake – The biggest area that most of us can cut our sugar intake very easily is by cutting out the sugary sodas.  Diet drinks have come a long way in taste and many of them have almost the exact same taste as their high octane counterparts.  If you’re a Coke lover, try Coke Zero or Pepsi, give Pepsi Max a try.  You can even ease yourself off of the full calorie equivalents by mixing the two together until you’ve reached the point you’re on the no sugar version.  For cooking, try a sugar substitute such as Truvia.  Once you’ve gotten used to them, you really don’t miss the taste.
  • Do something with those smoke breaks – During lunch or one of your morning or afternoon breaks, take a walk.  Even a small increase in your physical activity can show results.
  • Hydrate – Drinking water not only helps keep our system clean but also can help boost your metabolism and decrease hunger.
