  • Losing Weight 24/7

    Losing weight is a goal that takes time and perseverance. It is not something that is going to happen overnight. There are plenty of books and articles that give you tips and advice, telling you their "secret" for losing weight. There is a notion in the world that there isn't just one way to lose weight by hundreds...maybe even thousands. But the truth of the matter is, eating healthy and exercising on a daily basis will lead to results. There is a huge mental component to losing weight too, probably even as equal to the physical strain. Here is a great, simple article that outlines the keys to weight loss and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, not through working out (which is a major factor in weight loss) but rather through your daily routine. Looking for a great book for your son or daughter on healthy lifestyle? Be sure to check out Don't Call Me Cookie by Vanessa Pasiadis.

    6:45 AM: Get Some Early Exercise
    "Studies show that most people who wear pedometers clock up more steps before lunch compared to after lunch," says accredited dietitian Kate Di Prima. "Morning exercise raises your heart rate and metabolism early to give you physical energy for hours, so from that perspective it also helps burn more calories throughout the day." Depending on where you live, there are also generally lower pollution levels in the morning.

    7:30 AM: Have Breakfast
    "Eating breakfast kick-starts your metabolism -- especially since we don't eat for around ten hours overnight," says Di Prima. "Eggs are a high-satiety food and good to begin the day with."

    Keep your carbohydrate intake light at breakfast if you're trying to lose weight; think one slice of wholegrain toast instead of two, and include beans or spinach rather than the empty calories of white bread, jam and butter.

    "Aim to get 25 percent of your total day's calories at breakfast, with five other small meals throughout the day. Think breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, dinner like a pauper -- and two dainty snacks -- like a princess!"

    9:00 AM: Skip the Morning Latte
    Forgo the large, full-fat latte in favor of a small, skim latte, or better still, try tea. "This will save a lot of calories," says naturopath Kevin Griffiths. "It will also help keep sugar cravings in check, and blood sugar levels on an even keel."

    11:00 AM: Ditch the Juice
    Have an apple instead. "A glass of apple juice has the calories of almost three apples," says Di Prima. Studies also show that regular fruit juice intake may increase diabetes risk by 50% due to massive sugar hits. "Also, the fiber -- which is what helps you fill up faster -- is left out of the juice. By making this one swap you'll save calories every day."

    1:00 PM: Love Your Lunch
    "Don't eat at your desk. Get outside, go for a walk and be conscious when you do eat of what's going into your mouth," says Di Prima. "If you want to cut carbs, have a stir-fry with extra sprouts and vegies, but ask for fewer noodles. Eat fish with salad instead of fries, and if you must have bread, ditch the top of the sandwich and have it open."
