7. Don’t Be Anxious
When you’re feeling anxious or nervous, the body feels as if it’s under a whole lot of stress.
That is the reason why it is considered to trigger weight gain. The stress hormone cortisol is released when anxiety kicks in and can cause a build-up of fat around the midsection of the body.
It can also lead to stress eating thus even more added weight.
Exercise is known to help heal anxiety and it is best done in nature, where mindfulness can be practiced. Take a walk in the park or run with your dog. When feeling anxious, get out of the house and feel better.
8. Keep Track of your calorie Intake
Nope, not your new diet. Actually, we advise that before starting your proper diet, maybe for a week or so, keep a detailed list of everything you eat from the beginning to the end of your day.
Why do this? You want to be able to see how much you are actually eating per day and think to yourself how much of it do you actually need. ‘
Then, when you start your proper diet, you can compare what your new meals look like and how well it works for you.
