My ｔｉｐｓ／Ｒｅｇｉｍｅｓ Ｉ ｄｉｄ
-Find a picture of your inspiration of the type of body you want to achieve. Again, it's for motivation.
-Eat healthily! Have your 5-a-day.
-Never let yourself get dehydrated.
-For snacks, have fruit, vegetable sticks, nuts and/or dried fruit.
-I never ate after 7. If i was hungry after 7, I'd drink water or snack.
-BREAKFAST is the most important meal of the day.
-Do not skip meals.
-Never eat over the daily recommended number of calories. (I've read that its 2000 calories per day for women, I had limited myself to 1000-1500 per day).
-Make sure you eat 4-5 hours before you sleep.
-Have a minimum or 8-9 hours of sleep.
-Everytime I went out for a meal, I always had salad. If it was at a resturant with family and relatives, half a bowl of rice and eat the healthy stuff. More vegetables no matter how much you hate it.
-A glass of water before a meal helps. You will feel fuller and wouldn't eat as much.
-Exercise everyday for 1-2 hours. Have one day a week off from exercise. (I ended up doing it more than 2 hours a day and didn't have a day off).
-Join sports teams.
-Cardio exercises are best to get your heart rate going. Remember to warm up properly and cool down properly.
-Interval training exercises are know to be effective at burning fat.
-Don't stick to one sport. Your body will get use to it and may slow down the process. (If that makes sense).
-Don't like sports? Then use an exercise video. :)
-Weigh yourself every 2 weeks. Shows how progress is going. If you weigh yourself everyday, you may not see any progress then give up.
-Remember, the first few weeks are the hardest. If you stick to this, it will get easier and you will no longer crave for junk food.
