3 Ways to Lose Weight the Quick and Healthy Way

Losing weight and getting fit takes effort. If it was fast and easy, everyone would do it, but it doesn’t have to take as much time or effort as you might think. If you make a few tweaks and small changes to your lifestyle, you’ll be surprised how quickly you see improvements.

1. Switch Up at Happy Hour

Instead of meeting up with your friends for drinks after work or having a glass of wine at home, which can pack on excess calories in a hurry, why not go for a walk or run? Invite your friends to join you and/or bring your kids along. That way you’re adding exercise to your afternoon routine and avoiding calorie packed alcoholic beverages.

2. Commit to 25 Minutes Every Day

It can be all too easy to skip a workout, especially when you think you have to commit to an hour or more. If you tell yourself that you’ll do just 25 minutes every day, you’ll be ahead of the curve. If you’re tempted to skip, just tell yourself, “It’s just 25 minutes. Netflix…kids…dinner…laundry can wait for 25 minutes.” You’ll find, once you make this commitment, that you’ll often do more than 25 minutes, as you get caught up in working out and enjoying your results. On days when you’re feeling tired or out of it, you still get 25 minutes in to feel good about. If you can’t get outside, check out Focus T25, P90X3, or 21 Day Fix for workouts that are 30 minutes or less. 

3. Drink Water and Eat Your Veggies

When you’re dehydrated, it’s easy to mistake thirst for hunger. To combat this, drink plenty of water. Keep a water bottle with you so that it’s convenient for you to drink at least 64 ounces of water every day. At the same time, when you get a snack attack, reach for fresh fruits and vegetables. They’re high in fiber, water, and will make you feel full for long periods of time without packing on a ton of calories.
