Small Changes for Big Wins
Can small changes really lead to big wins in your overall health and wellness? You betcha.
Gone are the days of highly restrictive diets and marathon workouts. Instead, it’s the small, consistent changes you make that lead to lasting results.
Portion Things Out
Some people think they can eat whatever they want as long as they work out most days of the week. However, without portion control, you’ll find it difficult to maintain a healthy weight— especially as you age.
Think about it this way: If you suffered an injury and couldn’t work out for an extended period of time, would your eating habits cause immediate weight gain? If so, it might be time to rethink your portion sizes.
Now, this doesn’t mean you need to be ultra-restrictive or never eat your favorite foods again. It simply means you need to choose the best foods in the right proportions for your health goals.
Here are a few ways to do that:
- Incorporate a balance of protein, complex carbs, and healthy fats at every meal.
- Cut your portions by one-third or one-half.
- Use smaller bowls and plates.
- Slow down and look up in between bites.
Of course, there will be times when you’re on vacation or celebrating an important event, but most of the time, keep your portions in check for consistent weight management and overall success.
