Managing your weight is about reaching an ideal healthy weight for you personally, while for some this would mean gaining weight to reach their healthy size, for the purpose of this piece we will be giving our top tips on how to avoid gaining weight and how to lose weight to reach a healthier size specifically.

 

 Fill Up

Keep yourself fuller for longer by eating high fibre foods. These fill you and thus stop you from snacking throughout the day. Foods that are high in fibre are also good for your health in other ways, as they help to maintain the health of your bowels, controls blood sugar levels and are also useful in lowering your cholesterol levels. High fibre foods for weight management includes fruit and vegetables, as well as whole grains and lean proteins. If you find yourself hungry, try snacking on something that is high in fibre and avoid sweets and processed snacks where possible.

 

The Most Important Meal of the Day

Skipping breakfast could result in you missing essential nutrients your body needs and lead to hunger, resulting in more snacking throughout the day. Breakfast is a vitally important meal and skipping it harms your weightloss journey, rather than helping you reach your goal.

 

Exercise

Exercise helps your overall health, from altering your hormone levels in a way that helps reduce a woman’s breast and women-related cancers risk, to helping delay and manage the impacts of arthritis. It has also been reported to help those suffering with depression manage their disorder. In terms of weight management, exercise helps boost your metabolism and keeps you sensitive to the fat-storing hormone, insulin, all of which help keep you in shape and are important in losing weight.

 

Control Those Carbs

Carbohydrates can result in a rise in insulin, the hormone that causes your body to store its fat. Replace carbohydrates, such as rice, pasta, potatoes and white bread with fibre alternatives, such as vegetable pasta and rice replacements and brown/whole bread.

 

Stay Hydrated and Healthy

Dehydration causes the body to lose weight, so diets that cut out hydrating foods and drinks can appear to have the effect of miraculously causing weight loss. However, these diets are extremely dangerous and their effects are only short-term, that’s why it’s always better to stay hydrated and look after your overall health, rather than trying fad diets that only garner visible results through dehydration.

 

Supplement

Making sure your body has all of the vitamins and nutrients it needs to work properly is important to your weight management and overall health. When you’re not getting all of the vitamins and nutrients you need from your meals, supplements can be an effective and easy way to provide your body with what it needs.
