Lose Weight And Keep It Off By Walking And Eating More Fiber

Sep 10, 2008
Losing weight and keeping it off involves much more than simply eating less and exercising more. If you are one of the millions of people who struggle to maintain a healthy weight and level of fitness, there is much more that you need to know. Learn the information provided here and you will be on your way to a more slender and fit body.

Eat enough fiber every day. This will mean cutting down on refined and processed foods and eating more fruits, vegetables, and real foods instead. You will also have more regular elimination, a key to weight loss and good overall health.

Prepare as much of your own food as possible. Obesity and health problems related to diet have increased as we have become more accustomed to eating in restaurants. You can prepare food that will last for two to three days, and then bring your lunch with you to work or wherever you will be. This will also save you quite a bit of money over time, while helping to lose weight and improve your level of health.

Get enough sleep every night. This may just be a matter of disciplining yourself to turn off the television and turn off the lights. Recent studies have shown that your glucose level will increase if you only sleep for five or six hours a night. Eight hours of sleep is the desired number and you can feel the difference after doing this for just a few days. Our cortisol levels are also the lowest before midnight, so turn in before ten each evening for optimal results. Sleep is the time for our bodies to rest and recover from whatever stress and exhaustion we have experienced throughout the day.

Drink water instead of soda of other sugary beverages. Water helps with digestion and elimination of toxins from the body, as well as with transporting nutrients to every cell of the body. Drink as much water as you like every day.

Walk every day. This can be a time of reflection as you move your body on a regular and steady basis. Depending on the weather, walking can be done either indoors or outside. You only need good walking shoes and a positive attitude to walk away the pounds and your worries at the same time.

Combining these ideas will help you to lose weight and keep it off for good. Improving your health will pay off for the rest of your life.
