There is no magic pill for fast results. If we want to see our body change, we also have to change our mind and our actions. And how do we do so? By making tiny 👌 adjustments in our daily routine and sticking to them with discipline and patience. Focus 🧘♀️ on what you want to achieve no matter how hard it may seem at the beginning, we promise you, every step of the way will be worth it. And to help throughout the process, we bring you small tweaks to get you big results. 💪
🍽 You are the only person in charge of what you eat. So, control your portions, prepare your meals according to what you want to achieve 🥩🥗 and see how you are capable of breaking those unhealthy patterns that keep you away from your goal.⠀
✔️Decrease alcohol consumption:
For some people, this is probably one of the hardest sacrifices we have to do, but sadly, alcohol is very high in calories 🍺. So, if you are cutting calories, you have to be willing to make the required changes to get what you want.⠀
Water 💧 is THE liquid of life. Our body is around more than 60% water and we need it to be healthy. So drink water even though you aren’t thirsty. Keep an eye on your urine color as a way of checking how hydrated you are. And an extra tip: if you are cutting calories, the more water you drink 💦 when feeling hungry, the fewer calories you consume. ⠀
Yes, eating right is also about crunching what we are munching 😬 in order to squeeze the maximum nutrients and minerals from our meals. This process will help you to digest the food at a faster rate and besides, it lets you enjoy your food even more! 👍⠀
✔️Increase fiber intake:
A wise decision: Decrease carbs intake 🥖 and increase fiber intake 🍎. Why? Rich-in-fiber foods will provide you with the amazing feeling of fullness while working your insides for better digestion. ⠀
If you have a sweet tooth 🍩, we know this will be the hardest thing to do. But, believe us, by reducing sugar consumption 🍪 you’ll not only be cutting calories, but also preventing obesity, type 2 diabetes, inflammation, and more.
