If you are new to the world of fitness and just starting your journey, here are a few tips to help you get started on the right foot.
Hopefully these tips will save you a lot of frustration and unnecessary trial and error.
Tip #1 – In order to lose weight you must create a caloric deficit. This doesn’t mean you need to starve yourself or obsess over calories. It simply means you need to become more aware of what you are eating, and start making healthier choices.

Tip #2 – Portion control is key to losing weight without feeling deprived. You can eat your favorite foods, just do so in moderation.
Just fill each container with the designated food and you are good to go.
Tip #3 – Always read package labels. It’s easy to assume that convenience foods would be packaged in single servings. This isn’t always true. A single bottle of juice often contains 2 or more servings. Check the label to see how many calories you’re really consuming.
Tip #4 – Don’t underestimate the value of a 5-minute walk. Those 5-minute walks add up to more calories burned.
Tip #5 – Make a real effort to avoid processed food. Food items in boxes, bags, or cans usually have additives and other unhealthy ingredients. Avoid them as much as you can.
Tip #6 – Building strong muscles in your shoulders, chest, and back will improve your posture and keep your abdomen from sticking out. Do some weight training or Pilates a few times each week.
Tip #7 – When possible, prepare your meals in advance. This way when its time to eat you will have less temptation to grab something unhealthy.
Tip #8 – Keep a balanced perspective. Its okay to take pleasure in food, just don’t allow it to interfere with your health and well being.
Tip #9 – Rather than restricting calories to some ridiculously low number, or eliminating entire food groups, you should instead choose a healthy eating plan that you’ll be able to stick to, even after reaching your target weight.
