Happy Monday, here’s to grand new week!
We at Ealing Fit Club are delighted to be starting a brand nee 6 week block of classes this week!
In part two our ‘10 tips to loose 10lbs’ we focusing this weeks blog post on intelligent eating!
Tip 1 - Go crazy on vegetables
Vegetables are your best bet when it comes to losing pounds. Nature has a terrific spread when it comes to choosing vegetables. The dark green veg and leafy green vegetables are your best firebd
Tip 2 - Eat intelligently
The difference between man and beast is that we are driven by intelligence while beasts are driven by instinct. Don’t just eat something because you feel like eating it.
Ask your self whether your body really needs it.
Tip 3 - Watch what you eat
Keep a watchful eye on every thing that goes in. Sometimes the garnishes can richer than the food itself. Remember
that it is the easiest thing in the world to eat something without realizing that it was
something that you should not have eaten. Selective memory you know...
Tip 4 - Control that sweet tooth
Remember that sweet things generally mean more calories. It is natural that we have cravings for sweet things especially chocolates and other confectionary.
Go easy on theses things and each time you consume something sweet understand that it is going to add on somewhere.
Tip 5 - Fix times to have meals and stick to it.
Try to have food at fixed times of the day. You can stretch these times by half an hour, but anything more than that is going to affect your eating pattern, the result will either be a loss of appetite or that famished feeling which will make
you stuff yourself with more than what is required the next time you eat.
Tip 6 - Eat only when you are hungry.
Some of us have the tendency to eat whenever we see food. We use parties as an excuse to stuff our selves. Understand that the effect of a whole week of
dieting can be wasted by just one day’s party food. Whenever you are offered something to eat do not decline it completely bit just break of a nibble so that you appear to mind your manners and at the same time can watch your diet.
Tip 7 - Quit snacking in between meals
Do not fall for snacks in between meals. This is especially true for those who have to travel a lot. They feel that the only time they can get a bite to eat is snacks and junk food. The main problem with most snacks and junk food is that they are
usually less filling and contain a lot of fat and calories.
Tip 8 - Snack on vegetables if you must
You might get the pangs of hunger in between meals. It is something that you can very well control. Or even better, try munching on carrots. They are an excellent way to satisfy those hungry pangs and are good for your eyes and teeth.
Tip 9 - Go easy on tea and coffee.
Tea and coffee are harmless by themselves. It’s when you add the
cream and sugar that they become fattening. Did you know that having a cup of tea or coffee that has cream and at least two cubes of sugar is as bad as having a big piece of rich chocolate cake?
Try to stick to black tea/coffee. Black tea or coffee can actually be good for you. But
personally I would like to recommend tea rather than coffee. The caffeine in the coffee is not really good for you because it is an alkaloid and can affect other functions of your body like the metabolism.
Tip 10 - Count the calories as you eat
It’s a good idea to have an idea of the calories that most food items have. If it is a packed thing then the label is sure to have the calories that the substance has - always read the labels! many supermarkets have now colour coded packaged food to show calories, fats, sugars and carbs and this makes it much easier to see what’s good.
We at Ealing Fit Club really hope you enjoyed the tips this week .
