… and eat less! We’ve all heard this time and again. Well it’s sort of true. You do need to watch what you eat and reduce calories to lose weight. But the fact of the matter is, just cutting back on calories may hurt you by reducing your muscle mass, which is just the opposite of losing FAT!
News is Move More and Eat More Often
… Eating 6 or 7 small portion controlled healthy meals all through the day, is a great way to get your body revved up while you’re: burning fat not muscle. You’ll be in a better mood which your co-workers and family will appreciate, and this will help to control your blood sugars! Best of all, if you do it right – YOU WILL LOSE WEIGHT & GET HEALTHY!
Calories In v.s Energy Out
You’ve got to get moving in your day.
STOP fighting it. Just make a decision to START. AND DO IT!
I’m not talking about running 30 miles your first day or this time next year. I am suggesting a:
15 to 20 walk every day. Walk the neighborhood or a mall.
Taking the stairs.
Parking at the end of the lot instead of next to the door.
Take the kids or the dog to the park and play. (If you have a crazy cat like me… take the dog… and the cat will follow! 🙂
Stretching every day during TV commercials! That means getting out of the chair and touching your toes a couple of times an hour.
Bottom line is: MOVE IT!
Start out easy… and work up to 30 minutes.
All you need is a pair of tennis shoes and a jacket.
Oh, don’t forget the dog. He/she will thank you later!
A 30 minute walk is a good way to get moving.
Don’t wait for January to roll around.
