There is no real magic nor quick fix to weight loss, however it doesn’t have to be all sweat and tears either. These five simple tips will help you shed the kilos and develop habits that will set you on the right path to healthy living.

1. The Pantry Cleanout

I don’t believe in the philosophy of making huge changes all at once. There is no point in emptying out your pantry and restocking with only ‘healthy’ foods, as this will invariably lead to wasted food (and money), as well as a tim tam meltdown when you need your sugar fix badly! Slowly swap processed foods for fresh and wholesome foods such as yoghurt and fruit when you need something sweet, and baked sweet potato chips with rock salt when it’s the salt and carbs you crave. The problem with processed foods is that they are low in nutrients, which makes your body seek out higher nutrient rich foods. This creates an overeating cycle as your body is never fully satiated.

2. The 80/20 Rule

We have been taught a bit of a fallacy in the diet world, and that is if we are good from Monday to Friday we can indulge on the weekend. Unfortunately, while this may be okay for those who simply want to maintain weight, if you want to lose weight you really need to focus on eating well ALL week with an occasional indulgence to keep you sane. See it like this; if you were to indulge every weekend, that adds up to eight extra days of non-dieting each month. That could be the difference between losing one to two kilos more each month.



Healthy eating, weight loss


3. Walking after your Meal

You don’t necessarily have to slog it out for hours at the gym - walking is an activity that most people are able to do, and now the good news is in! In a recent Japanese study, subjects who went for a brisk, thirty minute walk just after lunch and dinner lost more weight than those who waited to walk.

4. A Little Salt is OK
Chefs will tell you that salt is a natural enhancer for foods, so adding just a pinch of salt to desserts can help enhance the flavour. This will cause the food to taste sweeter and assist in you feeling satisfied after a few bites. Just ensure you're drinking plenty of water to flush any excess salt out of the body.

5. Cut Back
I don't condone food wastage, however if you leave the last four bites of food on your plate you can cut an average of 800 kilojoules. Add this up over a month and that is a staggering three kilos of weight loss!

There is no time like now to get started on these clever little tips to a healthier and happier you!
