Eat High-Protein breakfast
Are you still believing that skipping breakfast can help you lose weight?
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It gives you energy to start your day, to help you think clearly, to help you catch your bus, etc.
When you skip breakfast, there is a high chance you want to make a revenge at lunch, after lunch, and at dinner. That can lead to weight gain.
Your body needs fuel in the morning.
And to help you reduce craving, try to eat breakfast with high protein.
Protein foods such as eggs, tofu, and chicken, if cooked properly can make you feel satisfied in the morning so you don’t need any revenge plan in the afternoon.
If you’re afraid that breakfast might upset your stomach, you can try eating breakfast after 8 and after a glass of water/cup of warm tea.
Also remember to eat the breakfast in moderation.
P.S. If you eat chicken, choose skinless chicken.
Manage The Calorie
Weight loss can be achieved when you’re burning the energy storage in your body MORE than the intake.
You can lose weight without reducing your food consumption, but you need to do heavy workout or anything that burns a lot of calorie.
If you hate heavy workout, you can practice simple workout and balance it with calorie restriction.
It doesn’t have to be scary.
You can start with 1300 calorie diet or 1200 calorie diet if you will.
And yes, a 1300 calorie diet can still look delicious.
WHETHER IT IS 1400, 1300, OR 1200 CALORIES, REMEMBER TO ALWAYS INCLUDE FRUIT AND VEGGIES EVERY DAY
Plan Your meal
Impulsive eating can lead you to gain unplanned weight.
When you don’t know what to eat for lunch or for dinner you can end up buying a fast food or a high-calorie delicious -looking meal.
You don’t want that, don’t you?
Eating without planning can be unhealthy for your wallet too.
Anyway, if you want to eat mindfully, you can start with the meal plan.
This way, you can think more clearly of what to eat in the next meal times and whether it has too much calorie or not.
