Nutrition is the KEY contributor to weight loss and weight management. It is vital that we stay conscious of what goes into our body. The quality and quantity of food we consume is directly reflected in our bodies’ appearance, as well as our overall health. No amount of exercise can counterbalance a poor diet and unhealthy eating habits.

1. Do not drastically cut calories.

Our body need food to give us energy to perform our daily activities. However, we can limit the intake of empty calories. These come from foods with little or no nutrients. Sinful foods such as doughnuts, shortbreads etc will only add empty calories and we might need to forego more nutritional food to justify for additional empty calories.

2. Keep junk foods out of sight, and out of mind.

It is hard to resist the temptation of junk food such as potato ships, prawn crackers etc. In order to avoid giving in to these unhealthy snacks, it is advisable not to keep them within reach at all. Instead, keep healthy snacks that satisfy your cravings such as fruits and nuts.

3. Do not drink your calories.
Carbonated drinks, juices are high in sugar and therefore add tonnes of empty calories. By sticking to green tea and water you can cut hundreds of calories each day. By simple cutting out a couple high-calorie beverages daily, you can lose several pounds.

4. Make fitness a priority and I cannot stress more about it.

Make fitness a priority and schedule it whether in the morning or evening and stick to it Find out which time of the day is the best for you to work out. The best time will be first thing in the morning before going to work or in the evening before you relax with the rest of your family members. Whatever time of day or type of exercise you choose, it is important to be consistent and disciplined. Make it a priority and a habit.
