The Number 1 Reason You're Not Achieving Your Weight-Loss Goal


Assalamualaikum wbt..

Ya Allah...pejam celik sudah hampir ke suku tahun 2015. Nampak sangat kemalasan melanda diri...huhuhuhu...

Kali ni nak share pasal gaya hidup sihat..Maklumlah makin lama makin 'sihat' ni.....Macam² usaha tapi bila penyakit M melanda...apa pun tak boleh nak buat....Tapi seeloknya, buatlah berdikit²...Dah simpan lemaks bertahun²...Nak target loose your weight in a month? Huhuhu...karut sahaja.... *noted utk diri sendiri..*

Menurut Brigitte Zeitlin, RD, seorang pakar diet di B Nutrious, terdapat 5 strategi utama dalam proses mengurangkan lemaks ini :

1. "I will eat 2 cups of veggies (about the size of 2 fistfuls) at lunch and dinner."
"This is a specific and achievable goal to write down because it states exactly how you are going to achieve eating more vegetables without being too broad by just saying, 'eat more veggies,' " says Zeitlin. "By giving yourself a specific amount—two cups—and a visual way to set up a plate—two fist-sizes—you've given yourself a concrete way to put that plan in motion and achieve that goal."
2. "I will exercise 3 times a week."
Yes, when you're ready to lose weight, well, yesterday, it's tempting to scratch out the word "three" and replace it with "every day." But that's probably unrealistic—and simply 'exercise more' is too broad, says Zeitlin. "Planning to exercise three days a week is realistic yet flexible enough to work with when your life demands of family, work, errands, etc.," she says.
3. "I won't drink more than twice a week—and I'll only have 2 drinks each time."
You sip more calories than you likely realize with every glass of wine. "A great goal to help with weight loss is to drink less alcohol," says Zeitlin. But in order to achieve it, you'll want to specify exactly how many drinks you will have and how many nights a week you will have them. Again, it is all about the concrete numbers to visualize and commit to.
4. "When I crave soda or juice, I'll drink water instead."
"Drinking more water during the day and cutting out juices and sodas will help promote healthy weight loss," says Zeitlin. "A great goal is to aim for eight to 10 glasses of water a day because not only will you stay hydrated, but you are also aiming for a specific number of glasses, making it easy to know when you have accomplished that's day's goal." And by focusing on H2O, you'll automatically take in less of the surgery stuff—win-win.
5. "I'll log 8 hours of sleep each night."
When you're conked out, your body is still hard at work. "A good night's sleep is a big contributor when it comes to successful weight loss and maintenance, and it is often the most overlooked," says Zeitlin. "Aim for eight hours of sleep a night, but if that seems too unrealistic, then the smaller, more attainable goal of going to bed 30 minutes earlier every night."
