In Massachusetts, we people come to us desperate to lose weight. We listen to their story and talk about the choices they make in diet and how much daily exercise they get. Many confess to being fast food junkies that seldom get off the couch. You can’t live that way and expect weight loss to happen. There’s no magic formula. You have to drop the fries and move those thighs to get the results you want.
A healthy diet is at the core of a weight loss program.
No matter how much you workout, if your diet is unhealthy and filled with sugar and highly processed foods, you simply won’t lose weight. A great body starts in the kitchen because you can’t out-exercise a bad diet. Focus on making changes to your diet first. Our programs can help you with scientifically based diets designed specifically for you and your needs. You’ll be amazed at how good healthy food tastes and how good you feel after just a few weeks.
Combine that healthy eating with a program of exercise.
You will lose weight when you change your diet, but you also need to tone those muscles to look your best. You’ll be amazed at what a difference a half hour a day can make, not only in your appearance, but energy level and health. Exercise builds muscle tissue, to not only tone your body, but also boost your metabolism. The more muscle tissue you have, the more calories you burn even when you’re resting. That’s because it takes more calories to maintain muscle than it does to maintain fat.
Move your thighs even more than just an exercise session.
Get more active. If you’re streaming your favorite show, exercise during the commercials. In fact, if you have the commercial free version, you can even save money by opting for the streaming version that contains commercials, so you have time to exercise while watching. Take the stairs rather than the elevator, at least or several floors if you live or work in a high rise. Put a basket on your bike and ride to the grocery or ride to work. It all helps you get into shape and will change your life forever.
- Don’t forget the healthy snacks. Our programs all contain snacks, but if you’re creating your own healthy diet, include them. They’re extremely important and can help you avoid grabbing a quick snack or gobbling down more than you need at supper.
- Don’t starve yourself. Eating healthy isn’t dieting and doesn’t leave you feel deprived. It’s all about making smarter choices that are designed to boost your body’s health and energy, while providing all the nutrients you need.
- Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate and make sure it’s water. What you drink makes a difference. Even though the can says zero calories, that diet soda is still unhealthy. A recent study found that people who drank diet drinks had a larger waist circumference.
- A healthy life means adequate sleep. Lack of sleep causes the body to produce less leptin—the hormone that makes you feel full, and more ghrelin—the hunger hormone. That’s counterproductive.
