Though many women say that they like the “dad bod,” the truth is that, if you lost a little weight, you would feel a whole lot better. However, because there are a lot of diet and exercise tips specifically designed for women, it can be hard to figure out what to do as a man.
It doesn’t have to be that way. Here are some tips to help you lose weight.
Don’t skip breakfast.
You should eat a hearty breakfast to start your day off right! Make sure that you include protein and fat in your first meal of the day.
Don’t eat too fast.
Unfortunately, too many people starve themselves to try to get their ideal body, and it doesn’t work that way. If you do that, when you do finally eat, you scarf it down so fast that you overeat!
In fact, it is better to eat more meals throughout your day than just three.
You should eat three meals and several snacks to keep your metabolism up all day long.
Give in to cravings (once in a while).
While dieting, the more that you want something, the worse that it can be. For this reason, you should give yourself one day (or meal) a week where you can splurge. However, when doing so, eat a small amount of it. You don’t need to eat four pieces of pizza when one or two will do!
Plan out your meals.
This is especially important when you are traveling. If you are on a road trip, you might be tempted to stop at a fast food joint because it is fast. Are you dining out? Look at the menu before you go, so you know what you want to eat.
Losing weight can be challenging. However, it is not impossible. Start your morning out right with a good hearty breakfast and eat regular meals. Starving yourself will only make you overeat and feel bloated! You should also plan out your meals when you are going out.
