Are you approaching the successful completion of your January weight loss goals? If you’ve set yourself up properly, then you’re likely close. That said, if you’re not where you wanted to be, don’t give up. It doesn’t mean you’ve failed.
Your January weight loss goals may need to be shifted so that they better reflect reality. However, you may be able to catch up by using the following tips to turn the weight gain from the holiday season into more effective weight loss.
Tips for Better January Weight Loss
Use the following tips to help your January weight loss. This way, you can turn the winter weight gain you’ve already experienced into a form of weight management you appreciate a great deal more.
Drink Warm Water
Drinking warm water is considered great for your body. Moreover, it can be helpful with your January weight loss. Not only is it free of all calories, but it also supports a healthy metabolism. Moreover, it also helps to support your immune system and soothe a sore throat. Keeping you healthy is a fantastic way to be sure your weight loss won’t experience harm from illness. To get even more out of drinking warm water in the morning, try some freshly squeezed lemon juice along with it. This can help to get your metabolism going in the morning and give you a boost of antioxidants.
Alcohol is notorious for being bad for weight loss – and for overall health, for that matter – but it is also a central part of many holiday celebrations. Therefore, by avoiding it after the holidays are complete, you can both keep weight gain away and support your January weight loss efforts. That said, be careful of virgin cocktails as well since many mixers and sugary syrups are also very bad for weight control.
Lose the Regular Hot Chocolates
Hot chocolate may be delicious on a freezing cold day, but it is also packed with both sugar and calories. It’s best left for rare special treats if you don’t want it to cut into your January weight loss. Great alternatives include warm milk with turmeric and black pepper or warm milk with saffron, or even just warm water and cinnamon.
Include lots of veggies in every meal you eat. Eat fruits and veggies as snacks. The fiber, low calorie content and nutrients will do both your health and your January weight loss a lot of good.
