Did you take more calories this year which made you look fatter? Want to go into a new year with this physic? Well, No must be most of your answers to this question and that is exactly why people are rushing to buy gym memberships and cleaning out kitchen cabinets swearing that the next year should be the year when you followed the resolution for getting slimmer. But the goals will get clearer and the resolutions will get fulfilled once you make up your mind clear and control your will in a tough way. Here are five such resolutions for getting slimmer in the coming year –
Change your lifestyle and Break it down
To get slimmer or for losing weight, it is imperative to change the lifestyle altogether. Cutting down on carbs and fats can be one plausible solution but many a time, it does not do well for most of the people. As per Nutritionist Samantha Heller, from NYU Langone Medical Center in New York City, ‘Look at it one plate at a time, or even one choice at a time, but start right now and by this next time next month, you will see good changes.’ Instead of thinking to lose too much time at one time, think about breaking it down bit by bit. ‘If you lose 5 percent of your body weight, you can significantly decrease your risk of many diseases like prediabetes, type 2 diabetes, certain cancers and heart disease. You lower your blood pressure, cholesterol, and A1C (a long-term measurement of blood sugar level), and it’s so much less overwhelming to think about.’ Heller adds.
Balance your calorie Intake, Strive for negative input
It’s important to burn as much calorie possible to get a slimmer figure and hence important to strive for a negative calorie balance. We do not need to get standard calorie intake to get perfectly fitter. This theory gets total support from Nutritionist Maudene Nelson from Columbia University Health in New York City, said, ‘It works mathematically but it doesn’t work physiologically. The body defends its weight.’ But you need to lessen your calorie intake to get a proper physic and lose weight on a timely basis. Even if your calorie intake is high, you must focus on more focused weight loss methods to get in shape before adding anymore calorie. Both Nelson and Heller said that very low-calorie diets don’t work in the long term because the body goes into the starvation mode. ‘You don’t want to lose weight too quickly because it scares the body into thinking there is no food available.’ She added.
Simplicity of the Plate is Important
Nelson recommends that the plate you get into the table should be very simple and half of it should be vegetables while one quarter should be protein and another should be protein. If you still feel hungry, feel up your plate in a similar way again and not with any other high-calorie foods. In the morning you should substitute fruit for the veggies.
Protein is a must for every meal
You should not forget to have a protein-rich component in every diet which helps your blood sugar levels from spiking and then crashing. Without at least a little protein in your meal, you will be hungry soon after eating because of a fast rise and fall in your blood sugar levels. As per Heller, ‘Having Protein in the morning can really set the stage for a better day – whether its eggs or yogurt, nut butter on whole grain toast or apple slices or even leftovers from the night before’.
Bring a cap on your drink habits
It’s not at all advisable to drink on a regular or daily basis. It increases the intake of calorie and excess of it makes the body looks very bad in shape. You can often get a lot of calorie through the aerated and carbonated drinks and sodas as well. Also, a cap on the wine, beer, and other adult drinks should also be considered.
