10 Weekly Steps to Begin Losing weight: Week 5

For the last 4 Sundays, I have been posting weekly tips designed to give someone just getting started some small, easy steps to take that will help them lose weight. This is the Tip for Week 5…although it is a couple of days late. 🙂

Starting this week, I want you to eat more.

Yep, that’s right. I want you to eat more. Starting this week, eat no less than 4 times a day, and no more than 6. You should be eating approximately every 3 hours. By doing that, you’ll probably find that portion control takes care of itself; by eating so often, you won’t get so hungry that you devour everything in sight. You’ll also find that your energy levels stay consistent.

Personally, I eat 5 times a day. I eat breakfast, lunch and dinner; have a snack between breakfast and lunch, and again between lunch and dinner.

You should NOT eat within 3 hours of going to bed. That way, your body will be in fat burning mode the whole time you are asleep.

Also, try to balance your fat, carbohydrate and protein intake when you eat, even with your snacks. I have found the method recommended by The Abs Diet to be helpful here…be sure to eat a protein and a carbohydrate when you have a snack. The fat will naturally take care of itself. For example, I may eat some almonds and an orange for one snack, and a piece of string cheese and an apple for another.

Hopefully, you are still following the first 4 tips that I’ve recommended in this series. By taking the actions I’m posting, you are beginning a process that will help you lose every pound and every inch that you want to lose.
