The same can be said for the diet and pharmaceutical industry. There are so many diets and weight loss medications that we could change diets weekly and continue for years before having to repeat one. We have only one answer for the Obesity EPIdemiC – The solution is in the word!

TIPS

Below we have listed 4 sensible, sustainable and proven weight loss tips that cater for all individuals no matter their physical condition:

1. Increase the amount of water you drink.

This ensures that our bodies are not dehydrating which results in the body not effectively flushing the toxins out. This lack of water can also create water starvation, whereby the body stores additional fat and water.

2. Increase the frequency you eat.

Frequency is the number of meals you eat per day.

Ensure not increase calorie intake, as it is critical to expend more calories than you consume in order to lose weight.

By increasing your frequency of meals you increase your metabolism. Starting each day with a healthy balanced breakfast will also increase metabolism. The end result is getting the body out of starvation mode and flipping the fat switches off.

3. Increase your activity level.

Depending on your level of health and physical condition you may need to be moving more. Examples would be using stairs instead of lifts, going for walks during breaks, parking further from your destination and playing with your kids. By making it regular we ensure physical activity burns calories.

4. Prioritise you

Decide why you need this change. Make the reason real enough to ensure that you stay motivated through all the ups and downs that may happen on your journey to achieving your goals.

Remember the journey may be long, make it enjoyable and make it EPIC!
