Slimming Tips and Information
Slimming: a verb meaning to become or make slim. And let’s face it, we all need products (whether you’re a man or woman) that help us accomplish that.
So in this article, I am not going to tell you:
• How To Lose Weight
• To try a new, trendy diet like the Atkins diet or Dukan Diet
• You should try the Cabbage Soup Diet (PROMISE)
I want to offer you tips on slimming naturally and healthy, while including a couple of small shortcuts (See Slimming Tip #2)
Thankfully, for us, there are a plethora of choices (lifestyle and material) that we can make in order to help us accomplish this: Slimming
Below you will find my 5 Slimming Tips that will help you accomplish this goal. So get ready and let’s get Slimming!
• Slimming Tip #1- Eat foods that are healthier:
o Well of course, that goes without saying but I am not talking about just eating a head of lettuce 3 times a day. Start small and build from there. For example: Next time you are at a fast food restaurant, either forgo the fries or the soft drink (opt for water). That saves you 300 to 400 calories.
o Eat nuts or foods with high protein as snacks in between meals. Nuts and foods with high protein (non-fat, plain Greek yogurt) tend to leave you feeling fuller than high caloric meals. This means you will eat less.
• Slimming Tip #2 – Shop At Online Retailers That Offer Products That Make You Slim:
o This one is just for the ladies (but I guess it can include men as well). I suggest you start with purchasing a pair of Spanx. This company was founded in Atlanta, Georgia (by Sara Blakley) and manufactures pantyhose and other undergarments that specialize in “body shaping” (aka slimming). Prices range from $35 to above, but they do have a collection for under $35 as well.
o Other retailers (see below for links) also offer clothes that result in slimming. The choices are extraordinary!
• Slimming Tip #3 – Exercise, Exercise, Exercise:
o Now this may intimidate some of you. So let me be clear: I am not talking about exercising 7 days a week for one to two hours, each day. If you do not exercise regularly, then start small. 20 minutes of walking on a treadmill. Don’t have a treadmill? Then walk outside for 20 minutes. Too cold or hot? Then walk up and down your stairs for 20 minutes. Don’t have stairs? Then see Slimming Tip #2.
Point is, start small and incorporate some exercise into your daily routine. Your body and mind will thank you.
• Slimming Tip #4 – Eliminate Stress
o Scientific fact: The more stressed you are; the more you eat (and it is usually unhealthy). So look at things that cause you stress and see what you can eliminate. E-mails, Facebook, money, friends, school, work? Look these things over and take stock. For example: have an e-mail inbox that you can never stay on top of? Try only responding to e-mail a couple times a day (Say noon and 4PM). You’ll be surprised how much gets resolved if you let other people figure things out.
