Often times we need some sort of motivation to kick our butts in to healthy gear.? Detox wrapping is not a miracle.? Think of it as your motivator.? If you achieve the best results and lose inches after 3-4 applications, wouldn’t that motivate you to keep them off and even to continue using the target wraps while you begin creating new habits and living a healthier lifestyle? There is nothing better than grabbing any pair of jeans out of your closet and having them fit on the first try. (Without laying down.)? That right there can be a huge motivator to keep the inches off.
If you are overweight, you are not alone. Sixty-six percent of adults in the U.S. are overweight or obese. Achieving a healthy weight can help you control your cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar. It might also help you prevent weight-related diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and some cancers.
Eating too much or not being physically active enough will make you overweight. To maintain your weight, the calories you eat must equal the energy you burn. To lose weight, you must use more calories than you eat. A weight-control strategy combined with 30 minutes to an hour of walking or any other form of exercise will help keep the inches off.
Choose a Low-Fat, Low-Calorie Meal
Even if you eat out a lot you can still do this.? Order a burrito…ditch the tortilla and put it in a bowl.? Craving a burger? Fine, but ditch the fries.? There are ways to reduce your caloric intake and not suffer too much.
Eat Smaller Portions
Restaurants today serve up meals that should be able to feed a family of four.? It is ridiculous sometimes how big the portions are.? That is a pet peeve of mine, but a good way to eat less is to order half of it to go from the start.? Ask the waiter to save it for you until you are ready to leave.? Once you’ve paid your check you are less likely to sit there and pick at the other half of your lunch.
Drinking Water Instead of Sugary Drinks
Soda is so bad for you.? Diet soda is just as bad.? All I can say about this is don’t drink it.? Try other things that have good flavor like iced teas or natural juices, but even those may contain a lot of sugar.? Really…water is the best thing for you and in order to achieve the best detox results you need to drink LOTS of it.
Being Physically Active
Whether you are walking around the block or running marathons, get off yer bottom and do some exercise.? You have to start somewhere.
