Fighting the battle of the bulge? There are habits and factors that contribute to weight gain. By knowing these factors and being prepared, you can help to fight future weight gain and maybe even knock off a few pounds in the coming months.
- Activity Levels – The more you move, the more calories you burn and the harder you make it to gain weight. You don’t need to live in the gym to make it harder for your body to pack on additional fat.
- Nutrient-Rich Foods – Empty calories might fill your stomach, but they don’t provide the vitamins and minerals your body needs to function properly. If you eat a lot of empty calories, odds are you will overeat as your body seeks the nutrients it needs.
- Portion Control – Binge eating is a serious dietary problem. How many times a week do you continue to eat after you feel full? Try this…full up your plate and eat only that, even if you still feel hungry. Wait at least an hour before eating again.
