Tips for Keeping Healthy While Losing Weight

Keep your eyes peeled as those colder months hover over the horizon as our bodies naturally make an attempt to beef up in size for the cold days ahead.

There are two types of carbs: Simple and Complex. Carbs act as energizers and are a necessary part of total nutrition. Without carbs, we would feel very sluggish and molty.

When we gain weight, we gain more fat cells. The more fat cells that we accumulate, the more difficult it is for us to maintain our recommended weight. This adds insight to why it is important to begin getting off the unwanted weight as soon as possible.

If you are a smoker and are considering going on a diet OR if you are a smoker planning on quitting smoking, then a visit to your physician is a must.

Generally, smokers tend to gain a bit of weight when they quit smoking. 

It's a bi-polar situation for the smoker who is dieting; smoking may increase to combat hunger.

If you find it too overwhelming to give up smoking AND testing out the Diet Waters all at once, then give up the smoking first. 

Statistics contend that smokers face health risks four-fold compared to overweight individuals, even those who are severely obese.

Are you a morning-grabber-on-the-go person? 

Yes, the person that shoots out of bed, jumps into their clothes, races to the nearest popular coffee shack, grabs a scone and latte, then races to the office. If so, redefine your morning routine. 

That scone and cup of java could be pricey in more ways that one. Some of the exotic coffees contain a few hundred calories each - and that scone? About 250-700 calories, depending on your favorite coffee shack.

Foods with fiber have more satiety power. In other words, you'll feel full for a longer period of time when eating foods like: 1/2 cup of beans or a serving of oatmeal.
