Ways to Maintain Weight Loss
Maintaining your weight loss essentially means battling a system that is habituated to gaining lost weight. The transition from losing weight to maintaining it should be very seamless. Secondly, it is easy to maintain your goal weight when you make exercise a part of your life. This is because a hormone called leptin, informs the brain about the loss of fat stores, making you prone to quick weight gain. Here are some ways to maintain weight loss.
Just like any successful venture, a weight loss program succeeds earlier when you find the right company. Find a workout buddy to accompany you to the slimming centre. Support is not limited to workout buddies. Have an active social circle and keep them posted about your progress.
Couples and friends, who lose weight together, maintain the weight loss for longer. Share your workouts, diet plans, and maintenance with your community. You will be accountable to family and friends and will be driven to maintain weight loss.
Get proper sleep
People who don’t sleep enough are likely to compensate for the tiredness by eating more in the day. Furthermore, they usually make high-calorie choices. Tiredness during the day also leads to loss of energy for physical activity.
Loss of sleep also affects appetite. Consequently, those who get less than 7 hours of sleep are more likely to be overweight. Cultivate a culture of sleeping on time at home and maintain weight loss easily.
Track your progress meticulously
Tracking the progress of your weight loss program is important. 75% of successful weight loss maintainers weigh themselves at least once a week. This is necessary to know if you have gained weight. This can help you get your weight back to the ideal mark in time.
However, fluctuations are common, and it is important not to feel de-motivated just because you have gained a pound. Avoid watching your weight every day and underestimating your self-worth.
Try alternative slimming methods
Singaporeans are increasingly trusting methods like Traditional Chinese Medicine to maintain their weight loss. TCM slimming involves a combination of holistic healing techniques that keep lifestyle diseases at bay, too. Make techniques like cupping, acupressure, and acupuncture, a part of your weight loss program.
TCM slimming can be beneficial because it works on the principle of restoring the body’s qi balance. Long-term obesity is also brought about by dampness, which Traditional Chinese Medicine rids the body of.
Bring more activity in your daily life
This can be done in a number of ways. You can start off by limiting your screen time. No matter whether it is your computer, TV, or phone, cut it down to half. The average person has the tendency to munch on foods full of empty calories while in front of the screen. Try to spend more time outdoors and offer to do chores. Make exercise a part of your life and have fitness idols so that the weight loss is long term.
Above all, be persistent in your efforts to maintain the results of your weight loss program. It is natural to break out of your schedule and eat without restraint occasionally. Get back to the old ways as soon as possible.
