A Healthier You

Updated: May 27

Everyone loses weight in different ways but there are basic sciences that help us become closer to our goals. For example there are studies done on blood types that tell you what foods to eat more of and what foods to stay away from. Think of yourself as part of the earth and listen to you body and what it needs. I remember gaining weight, it was so fast I didn't even realize it was happening. I had just started a new career that was looking upward and the extra money I was using it to eat. I love trying new things and eating and sitting definitely packed on the pounds. So I had to do what had to be done.

PORTION CONTROL I'm telling you portion control works. Diets are already difficult because you are having to stop eating what you like. The idea is just eat what you want just smaller portions. Say you have a burger, just eat half of it and save the rest for later. What it does is shrinks your stomach, eventually you will not even be able to stomach as much food as before. When this happens this ignites endorphins that make you more aware of the foods that you are putting in your body. It becomes exciting to see your efforts actually make a change.

Plus I started only ordering meals that would be good heating up later being that I was only eating small portions. Which inadvertently caused me to immediately eliminate fast foods. Because who wants cold McDonalds fries, because I don't. Instead I would order the 3 for $10 at chilies or authentic style grilled chicken tacos from one of my favorite Mexicans restaurants if I wanted to eat out.

WATER

I know I know. This is the obvious but hear me out. Water works wonders on you skin, it also helps with flexibility & it helps eliminate the consumption of empty calories. If you want to see a new you, Water has to be your best friend.

EXERCISE

Working out is different for everyone. I personally love to dance and lift weights, so that's what I do. Dancing is something you can do at home, you can learn dance videos on youtube and just learning the video itself is a workout.
