Here is an article called “6 Lazy Ways to Shed Pounds”. I would like to “weigh on” on my opinions regarding the ideas discussed in this article.
· Take a multi vitamin. Before taking any kind of supplement, I recommend discussing it with you doctor first. I do not take any vitamin supplements; I consume at least six servings of fruit throughout the day.
· Weigh yourself. I recommend weighing yourself on a weekly basis, although I still find myself checking the scale every day. Just today, my weight has fluctuated two and a half pounds since yesterday, but my weekly weight has stayed down.
·Start your meal with a soup or salad. Instead of filling up on extra calories before you eat the rest of your meal, try preparing soup or salad that contains a form of protein like chicken, quinoa, beans, or tofu. It can stand alone as a delicious and filling meal.
·Eat Breakfast. I eat breakfast every day. It doesn’t have to be fancy or complicated; I eat honey nut cheerios and milk. I measure 1 cup of cereal with ½ cup of milk. Once I arrive to work, I eat a banana and a serving of nuts.
·Drink water before you eat. I drink water all day long. It is important to drink before, during and after eating.
·Buy cut vegetables. While I prefer to buy whole fruits and vegetables and cut them myself, it can be a time saver for some people. Buying precut fruits and veggies is a lot healthier than anything else you would get from the vending machine.
