Exercise. Every medical study agrees that exercise is important for good health and longevity. What about exercise and weight loss?
I believe walking 30 to 45 minutes every day is a key part of losing weight. You don’t need to jog, lift weights, or swim a mile to lose weight. But a good walk is very helpful. I think it helps metabolism or blood pressure or the immune system, maybe all of them, I’m not a doctor. Just walk at least 30 minutes a day. Even if it’s hot or cold or damp.
Portions. You will quickly discover that restaurants serve huge portions and that hostesses nag you to have second helpings. Not your problem. You don’t have to “eat everything on your plate” like a little kid, and you can just pat your rapidly shrinking tummy and assure the host that you’re stuffed.
Sticking With It. Not going to lie, it’s easy to backslide. Remember I said I’d lost 50 pounds? Yeah, actually I did it twice, after I fell off the low carb wagon. Do whatever helps you stick with something. Shopping for clothes a size smaller is fun, that might work.
That’s all for today!
