It’s human nature to have times where we fall off track, especially during a holiday like Pesach where there is twice as much food around. However, it is important to get back on track to help you reach your goal weight.
Here are some reminders to make sure you are on track:
Are you drinking enough water?
We all know that drinking water is vital to a healthy lifestyle and is an important part of all body functions. Water is a weight-loss aid in that the more you drink, the easier it is to lose weight. Drinking water helps boost your metabolism, cleanses your body of waste and helps you curb your appetite. If good ol’ water doesn’t cut it, try drinking flavored water. There are many benefits of drinking water, so keep drinking.
Are you keeping a food log?
Keeping a food log is more likely to help you be successful in reaching your goal weight. When you keep track of what you’re eaten, it increases your awareness of what and how much you’ve eating. In addition, it can encourage you to eat fewer calories. This helps you and the counselor make changes that will ultimately benefit you.
Do you have a partner/social support?
Find a friend, a relative, a neighbor or even a co-worker with whom you can plan to cook healthy meals, do activities and even chat for support. Having the support of your healthy eating is important for long-term weight loss success. Also, don’t forget to celebrate achievements a another great source of encouragement.
Do you have counselor support?
A big component of the program is the support and accessibility to the nutrition counselor and to Tanya herself. Every client gets their counselor’s cell phone number and is welcome to ask questions, share victories and get support, anytime!
