First let me state that I do not believe that there is a quick pill or potion that will make you lose weight. Losing weight is indeed a process.
The first step is to be ready. Make sure YOU want to lose weight, no one can force you. Unless you have the motivation than it won’t happen. You have to be clear in your head that it’s time and you are ready to make this happen, Just remember that you did not gain the weight overnight so do not put a lot of pressure on yourself to lose it too quickly. Set a reasonable goal. Now that you are ready let’s move on.
Drink more water especially when you wake up in the morning and before each meal.
Avoid white flour and wheat. Most women who are suffering from weight gain, bloating, headaches and brain fog even if they never had an allergy to gluten are more prone to be sensitive if they are undergoing perimenopause. If you suffer from these symptoms than you need to cut gluten out of your diet: Yo-yo weight, chronic bloat,exhaustion (after eating), depression,anxiety,constipation,nausea or diarrhea.
Cut our sugar and sugar substitutes. These are addictive and once you cut down it will get easier to avoid this fat trap.
Eliminate dairy products.
Exercise at least 20 minutes 3 days a week: (go for a walk) It does not have to be stressful, just start moving.Go dancing with your honey. When was the last time you did that. Make it fun!
Add more fruit and vegetables to your diet, preferably organic. The extra nutrition and fiber will help give you more energy and clean out that sluggish colon. Remember it you are full stop eating and do not eat while watching TV. This has to be one of the easiest ways to gain weight.
Most people do not want to hear this, but the most successful people who lose weight are those that weigh themselves everyday and have someone to answer to. Get a buddy to help you. Make this a team effort and your results will be better.
There is no miracle and you just need to eat right, exercise, get plenty of rest and shake your booty:)
