Weight loss is hard, but weight management and maintenance may be harder! Many times we go to extremes of working out and dieting to lose weight and reach our goals. But how do we transition into maintenance and manage not to gain the weight back? How can we keep our progress while still enjoying food a bit more freely and not spending hours in the gym?
The key is keeping those healthy habits and balancing fun and “fit” foods! Below are our top 4 tips to incorporate into a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
Fuel Your Body Right!
No matter what, your body needs plenty of protein to maintain your muscle, optimize your metabolism, and maintain healthy hormones. All of which help keep your metabolism at its highest! But never forget your healthy fats for hormone and brain health and anti-inflammatory properties! And remember it is all about balance so remember your complex carbs for energy and fiber! Including protein, fats, and carbs will help keep cravings away!
For some people intermittent fasting works great! But for others small frequent meals, help maintain blood sugar which helps control cravings and hormones! So find the timing that works best for you.
Master your training!
Remember you should be incorporating a mixture of training styles. Weight training to maximize muscle maintenance or even growth, increasing your metabolism and cardio for that extra calorie burn. Remember to always progress and change things up every few weeks!
Sleep is king!
Aim for 7-9 hours of sleep a night! Getting enough sleep helps support fat burning, muscle recovery, hormone balance, and overall help prevent over eating while making smart choices! Getting enough sleep will keep those cravings from being tired away!
