•Fruits and vegetables. They can fill you up without giving you so much calories. But yes, it could really be boring to munch a piece of fruit just anywhere. Here is what you can do: prepare a mixture of sliced fruits (apples and banana), add a drop of lemon juice, and put it in a sealed container. At home or in the office, make strips of cucumber and turnips, then sprinkled with a pinch of salt.

• Nuts can also be a good “in-between meal nourishment.” Nuts consist of monounsaturated fats which can give that feeling of fullness. Aside from its fiber content, it also contains magnesium, manganese, protein, zinc, and phosphorus.

•Low fat and calorie foods. When choosing healthier snacks, do not only look at the fat content but also the sugar and the carbohydrates. A food may be low in fat, but high in sugar and vice versa.

• Low sodium foods. Be conscious of the sodium content of snack foods. When given several choices, don’t just go for one with better taste. Good health is not achieved by foods that have one good ingredient. You should eat foods that do not have negative ingredients like sodium (could be from salt or other baking ingredients). For example, delete crackers from your snack lists, no matter if they are advertised as healthy. This is especially true with those that have more than 100 mg of sodium per serving size.

Although snacks can really help cut down main meal caloric intake, it can also be a source of excess calories if you do not monitor total caloric intake. As we are all being encouraged, read the labels for calories, good nutrient contents, and negative ingredients. Snack healthily.

More than burning calories

Effective weight loss is more than knowing how to burn and how to count calories.  There are a lot of people who have memorized calorie counts of foods and have bought all the necessary exercise gadgets to monitor calories and exercise performance, but still find it hard to maintain weight.

If you still have unresolved personal issues which might trigger overeating, then there’s a greater chance that you can break your diet plans or discontinue your exercise program because you are not prepared for such circumstances.

Identify the triggers for over-eating or lack of exercise. Write a journal of your food intake, physical activities and even sleep. At the end of the day or week, analyze why you did not follow your food plan. It might be due to stress from work, conflict with your husband or low self-esteem.

The best weight-loss strategy is usually the cheapest one.  Resorting to surgery, liposuction and diet pills can surely make you lose weight, but the real issue is maintaining your weight-loss results long term.  Try not to attribute real weight-loss success to unnatural strategies because the worst thing that can happen is you will be dependent on those.

You are the best person to end your weight loss problems. If you believe that you can lose weight through attitude and behavior change, then you’ve already taken the initial step to long-term weight management.

Good morning to every one.  As we all know Christmas is just around the corner.  Some are preparing for the stuff to buy, what food will be serve and some are preparing to burn calories now.  They thought of that for the preparation of craving much good food.  Irresistible time when Christmas is already there. 

Tired of battling the post holiday bulge?  This season, try trimming yourself instead of just the tree.

Okay, that’s it. You’re tired of that tire, fed up with that flab.  You’re going to burn off that belly and keep it off—for good.  Even if you’ve made your New Year’s resolution, and by gum, this time you’re going to stick to it.

Way to go.  Only one problem.  It’s not New Year’s yet.

It’s December, a month when even the most dedicated exercisers can fall off their schedules.  You’re staring down a long stretch of 31 days filled with parties and family gatherings, tray of cheese puffs and cocktail weenies.  This is not an easy time to jump-start your workout or begin a whole new training regimen.  Especially when you can always mumble,  “Well, there’s always next month…,” while choking down another sleigh-shaped butter cooked.

And burning calories doesn’t only take place in a gym.  Even if you’re slacking off this month or putting aside your exercise plans until the new year, you can still start losing weight.  Painlessly.  Here are 100 ways to burn 100 calories.

Let me continue this because I will be preparing all so that you can do it as soon as possible before Christmas comes……
