Here it is… you’re staring down the barrel of 2022, and you’re thinking, “Great. Here comes the New Year’s resolution to lose weight.”
If you’re like most people, you put waaay too much pressure on your resolution, which makes it hard to actually start your ambitious weight loss goal. How much? How fast? How? And all those questions and ambiguities make you give up a few days later (if you ever get started at all).
Why not change it up this year? Why not give yourself the gift of hitting your weight loss goals without having them attached to some New Year’s resolution that you have never been able to keep? Just take small, attainable steps to an achievable goal. Set your sights on a number and a date, then stick to your plan. We’ve got some tips that will make it less stressful and more doable. 1. Eat Breakfast
It’s the most important meal of the day for a reason. Eating a filling, balanced meal in the morning helps keep you from being ravenous later, which will sabotage your goals of eating healthily.
2. Eat Regularly
Eating at regular times during the day keeps you from feeling the urge to snack. The big kicker: Studies show that it helps you burn calories more quickly. Who doesn’t want that?
3. TRIM It Out
Incorporate TRIM into your regimen. TRIM by SunMed features a THC compound that naturally suppresses the appetite, turning off the CB1 receptor in the brain that, when activated, leads to the “munchies” and intoxication. As a result, people taking TRIM have been shown to lose as much as 18 lbs. over the course of three months, decreasing their waistline an average of three inches with an average drop in BMI of three points.
4. Move It
This is probably obvious, but it still bears repeating. The more you move, the more you lose. That’s not just in dedicated gym time. Your sweat session is all well and good (and we definitely applaud that), but adding ordinary movement throughout your day is also important. Use the stairs instead of the elevator, park farther away, get up from the desk and move around a few minutes every hour throughout your workday.
5. Think Small
Swap out your dinner plate for a salad plate. Seeing a full plate (albeit a smaller one than you used to use) will trick your brain, but you’ll also feel just as full. Also, give yourself time to notice that you’ve had your fill by eating slowly.
