Great Weight Watcher's Tips For Healthy Weight Maintenance
If you are looking for a weight watcher's tips, you are either in the
process of losing
weight or in the process of maintaining your weight.
Losing weight is
hard work and gaining it back only takes a few indiscreet moments at
the candy machine or even the salad bar.
Follow these weight watcher's
tips to help keep yourself from gaining weight back, or slowing down
your progress towards your weight loss goals.
Your Body. It is a scientific fact that
the only way to gain to weight is by eating more calories that than
your body is using. So make sure you use calories during the day by
keeping your body moving. If you have a desk job, get up and talk a
walk over to see a co-worker on the other side of the building instead
of sending an email or picking up the phone. It’s nice to have a face
to face meeting with people now and then anyway. Smile when you get
over there and stop for a friendly conversation.
a frozen entrée to work for lunch. Not
only will you end up saving money, but you will know exactly how many
calories you are eating. When you buy fast food, or eat at the company
cafeteria, you really don’t know just how many calories you are
consuming, or what ingredients went into the food you are eating.
an Older Role Model. As we get older it
becomes more and more difficult to control our weight. A slowing
metabolism, a lower requirement for protein in the body and the
degeneration of muscle tissue all contribute to the fact that aging
bodies need less food, but people tend to want to eat the same amount
they always have. This means that we gain weight as we age. If you know
someone who is older and has a great body, the chances are high they
are working at it. They probably have a whole ton of weight watcher's
tips up their sleeve. Engage this person in conversation and find out
what they are doing, and then go do the same thing.
a Smaller Plate. The size of dinner plates
in a typical dinner service has become larger over time. Years ago a
dinner plate used to measure about 8 inches in diameter. Now it is not
uncommon to find dinner plates that are 9 or 10 inches across. The
effect of this, as many weight watcher's already know, is that you tend
to fill up your plate and consider that to be an average serving. A
good tip is to use a salad plate instead for your entrée. That way, the
plate will look fuller and you will eat less overall.
Thin. This is an important weight watcher's tip,
especially for those in the process of losing weight or
who have just lost a lot of weight. Thin people are not just lucky.
There are some rare individuals who have a high metabolism or suffer
from hyperglycemia (causing them to burn up more calories than the rest
of us), but most thin people really work at it. Observe thin people.
They tend to eat less overall and pick at their food. Next time you
find yourself in a restaurant shoveling in fork-loads of fettucine
alfredo, stop and observe the thin people around you. Chances are they
are picking away at their food and finding the small pieces of shrimp
or chicken in amongst the creamy sauce.
