Sometimes when you are single, the extra few pounds you might be carrying might be bringing down your self-esteem when you are on the hunt for the one. Getting into shape, toning up and loosing those extra pounds can not only be healthy for your body and mind, it can also offer you that extra boost of confidance you will need when going out on dates. Having an extra boost of confidance will have you feeling more attractive and thus make you more attractive to your potential partner. Here are some quick tips to help you loose weight and feel good:
Get enough sleep: To be at your best physically and mentally an adult needs to get atleast 7-9 hours of sleep a night. Sleep helps you look refreshed, fight wrinkles, keep your metabolism in check and keep you alert. Get enough sleep every night by establishing a bedtime and sticking to it.
Cut out all processed food and sugar: Processed foods and refined are terrible for your body and make you gain weight. Stick to eating natrual foods like fruits, vegetables, lean meats, whole grains.
Limit alcohol: Too much Alcohol is not only bad for your body, it also contains a lot of calories in the form of sugar and can actually make you gain weight, alcohol also dehydrates you.
Get moving: Even if you don’t have time to go to the gym, you can still get more excercise in your daily routine. Multiple studies have found that the average person should be taking 10,000 steps a day for optimal health. This may sound like a lot but it is actually easy if you work up to it. Get a fit bit or other pedometer and start by counting your steps. Making little changes like taking a walk during your lunch hour or walking to work can actually make the steps add up fast.
Count your calories: An online program like Myfitnesspal.com helps you track your calories and also the quality of food that goes in your mouth. If you cut your calories down you can loose weight, but make sure not to be too drastic. The adverage man needs atleast 1800-2000 calories and the average woman needs 1200-1400 minimum, so don’t cut to low or your body will actually not loose any weight at all.
I hope these tips have help you. I want to wish you good luck on finding the love of your life!
