I agree with not eating too much sugar and to avoid the weight watchers frozen meals. They are delicious (I love the Santa Fe Rice and Beans!) and convenient but agree they are not filling, are incredibly high in sodium, and don’t have a very good balance of carbs, protein, and fats. I was going to eat one today as a special treat (I used to eat them every day for lunch at the office but quit about a month ago) and when I saw what all was in it I decided to skip it.
Drink as much water as possible. Keep track of how much you are drinking. Chicken breasts can be your best friend. Cook a bunch at once and use them for snacks and lunches. They are high in protein, low in calories, and very filling. Try to get the majority of your carbs from vegetables. Some people swear off grains altogether when they are trying to lose weight fast. I don’t, but people who do tend to see big results quicker, or at least say they do.
As for exercise, I would do a mix of cardio and strength training. Squats, lunges and pushups require no equipment (unless you want to add weights, which is still minimal) and are some of the best workouts you can give your body. Deadlifts, chest presses, dumbbell rows, tricep dips also require minimal equipment but are a great workout. I never realized how much pushups and chest presses work your abs! I was not even trying to work on my abs area, just shooting to build my upper body strength, and my flabby stomach (I just had a baby in 2011) tightened up and flattened out without me even thinking about it!
I have been losing about 1.5-2 pounds per week so far. I try to not eat my weekly points and stick to just my daily and activity points. I tend to eat a small breakfast midday snack, small lunch and then dinner is my bigger meal and that works well for me.
I also stopped drinking (alcohol) which has been a huge help. The only thing I really drink is water. Diet soda if I am eating out. And a cup of hot tea (splenda and a touch of milk) on the weekends.
I’ve had a lot of success eating a mainly vegan diet on weight watchers. Because it’s mainly veggies, I can eat larger servings, because they’re good for me! Check out Skinny Dish or Appetite for Reduction cookbooks. I’ve lost ~2 lbs/week doing that with eating my extra and activity points. Look for whole grains, beans and veggies in a bowl.
Choose healthy options
Dont eat the cake
Cut sugar out
No processed foods
whole wheat , wholemeal or whole grain foods
Water down your alcohol (mix it with soda water) If you don’t cut it out totally
Drink plenty of water
Choose the dish with loads of vegies, cut the fat and cream and limit your carbs.
Menu plan (loads of vegies and lean meat)
Give yourself specific goals. Break them up. Like I want to do exercise 4 days this week. if you focus on too big goals you will fail. I want to lose 500g this week is achievable. Losing more is mabye not so achievable.
