This week I want to talk to you about eating right. It can be difficult when you are at a cookout to turn down that second burger or third plate of potato salad, but sometimes it needs to be done. There are a bunch of tips that you can follow to make sure that you aren’t overindulging this summer, so here are a few of them to help you either lose weight or keep a healthy one over these next few months.
1. Food Tracker Apps. Since almost everyone has a smartphone these days, here is one of the most popular methods of keeping track of your food. These apps are extremely popular and can help people lose weight like you wouldn’t believe! Apps like My Fitness Pal and FatSecret can help you track your calories, write out your exercise plan, and even scan in foods to get the nutrition information right from the package. These often help people to not only get the weight off, but keep it off longer.
2. Food Journals. The more “old school” method may be better if you don’t have a smart phone or simply don’t like carrying it around and pulling it out at mealtimes. Having a paper journal has helped people for many years and there’s no reason why it can’t work for you as well! Talk to your doctor (or chiropractor!) and see what the best diet plan and layout is for you.
3. Bring Your Own Plate. This may seem odd when you are heading over to a friend’s house for some food, but bringing your own plate to fill can help you cut down on what you eat. If you are trying to portion correctly, you may want to mark off how much you should take of what food group and this can be easier to do with a plate you already know the size of. It also cuts down on disposable waste, so it can help the environment too!
Losing weight, or keeping the weight off, is never easy. It is even more difficult when you have friends who are great cooks! If you explain to them that you are trying to be healthier, however, they will certainly understand why you are taking less food. Talk with your doctor to see what the best method to weight loss would be for you and remember that we wish you luck!
