I have an oldie but a goodie for you today.
First, let's always remember the "secret" to weight loss:
**You have to burn more calories than you take in**
Hands-down. It's physics people.
Now, keeping that "secret" in mind, you can do so 1 of 2 ways:
1) Inputting less
2) Outputting more
Outputting more means increasing your activity levels. The inputting less part simply means eating a bit less than normal.
Keywords: a BIT less.
Drastically reducing calories will help you lose short-term, but is not a good long-term strategy. A good long-term strategy is to slightly reduce the calories coming in.
Say, a 200-300 a day to start.
Which brings me to the point of today's letter to you: The Timer Trick For Weight Loss
It's really simple. When you hit the point in the day where you feel like you want to have something maybe not-so-healthy, or perhaps you are wondering if you should have a second helping of food because you're still hungry from your last meal, use The Timer Trick For Weight Loss.
After you finish your meal, or when a craving starts, grab your phone or the ol' egg timer and set it for 20 minutes.
When that timer goes off, ask yourself if you still feel hungry or are craving.
Chances are, you've moved on to doing something else and will opt to not indulge in the second round of food or the treat.
It's that easy. Craving/Still hungry > Wait 20 minutes > Ask yourself if you still want it.
That little "trick" alone could stop you from taking in those 200-300 calories you normally would've had. And those calories you're not taking in will ultimately lead to that weight loss you may be looking for.
Try it today, or tonight. Seriously. Y'all have a timer somewhere you can use, and if you're hankerin' for more, use The Timer Trick For Weight Loss.
Not sure why I just got real southern there with the "y'all" and the "hankerin'," but you get me.
Talk to ya later,
