3 HABITS FOR KEEPING THE WEIGHT OFF

3 HABITS FOR KEEPING THE WEIGHT OFF

Some lucky people seem to maintain a slender physique with little effort at all while others only have to look at a bag of crisps to put on a pound. Genetics and body shape are clearly a factor. But are there more controllable factors too?

The good news is that researchers have tracked the habits of people who seem to keep weight off easily and have come up with three ways that they stay slim.

1.EAT BREAKFAST

According to the National Weight Control Registry (NWCR) 78% of successful dieters start the morning with breakfast. A morning meal is the best way to curb your appetite and control cravings. People who eat breakfast also tend to consume less calories during the day too.

To help stop your tummy grumbling until lunchtime make it a healthy breakfast, such as this one-pan breakfast fry-up or a cholesterol-busting breakfast bowl.

2.DON’T DIET

Yes – you heard it right, you finally have official instructions to stop dieting! The truth according to the researchers is that successfully lean people rarely diet. Instead they select quality food that is both satisfying and nourishing, listen to their hunger cues, rarely eat out and limit screen time.

So ditch the scales, fill your plate with wholesome meals based around fruit, vegetables, lean proteins and whole grains and limit your Netflix marathons.

3.EXERCISE – A LOT!

You’ll get much further with your weight loss if you exercise regularly. Almost 90% of lean people in the NWCR exercise moderately for around 60 minutes most days of the week. This doesn’t have to mean daily slogs at the gym– anything that gets you moving will help shed extra pounds, so walk when you can and join a sports club.
