You are down to the wire, you have lost almost all the weight you want to. What to do if you are stuck.
I just received a few tips from some health professionals today. Here are 2 suggestions on how to take off the last 10 pounds.
1. Exercise after you eat your last meal for the day. You have to burn off those calories that you ate for dinner if you want a weight loss for the day.
2. What to eat at dinner time: Do not eat any bread after lunch time. For dinner, eat only complex carbohydrates such as fruits, veggies and grains.
Try out these two ideas! What have you got to lose?
Steps are always difficult for me, especially going up! But a few times up and down can really burn some calories fast. They also have those step climbers at the gym, and even the best of athletes have difficulty staying on the climbers for a long time!
Another tip on reducing, and what to eat. Dr. Neal Barnard in his book: Foods That Cause you to Lose Weight: The Negative Calorie Effect states that there are 20 foods that you can eat in unlimited portions:
Corn, rice, potatoes, lettuce, broccoli, black beans, kidney beans, spinach, lentils, celery, bananas, oatmeal, grapefruit, apples, oranges, pineapple, cauliflower, peas, cabbage
Also cutting out the fats and oils. Fat in food is fat on you!
