Resolutions: Weight Loss
by Denise Austin ||
A popular resolution is weight loss, and one that I hear often. No surprise here, especially after the holidays, when lots of us (me included!) indulged in delicious holiday foods. It’s also not a big surprise because a third of of the adults in the United States are estimated to be obese (meaning weighing more than 20 percent of what is ideal for their height). The good news is: if you want to lose weight, you CAN do it!! And I am here to help, with an EVER BETTER™ Membership at DeniseAustin.com - it includes a variety of tools to help you lose weight and keep it off!We're a little ways into the new year now, so the pressure is off... It's time to make some goals for YOU! Whether you want to lose weight because you're overweight, you want to take off those holiday pounds you put on, you have health reasons for wanting to get to a lower weight, or simply because you want to look and feel better about yourself, I have you covered. My Plan offers so many ways to help you focus on your weight-loss goals... and achieve those goals, too!A healthy weight is important for many reasons - being overweight can cause strain on your joints, difficulty breathing, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes and more. The good news is you can lose weight and keep it off by incorporating small steps into your existing lifestyle - no matter what your lifestyle is like at the moment. The three most important steps in my mind are getting cardio and strength training workouts into your daily routine, and eating a healthy diet:
- Cardio workouts. These will help to burn fat and calories, and are so important for heart health. Anyone can do cardio workouts, and my EVER BETTER™ Plan has lots of options that are fun AND effective! Whether you join me on the beach for some cardio dance moves or work out with me in the studio for some fat-blasting cardio routines, I have you covered!
- Strength training workouts. These are also important, as strength training helps to boost metabolism and build muscle. And muscle burns three times more calories than fat! That’s why my DeniseAustin.com membership also focuses on strength training. There are workouts for arms, legs, your back and more - all designed to fit YOUR level of fitness.
- Eating right. It's no secret that a healthy diet plays a big role in your weight. If you work out consistently, but are eating the wrong foods or too much, you may not see the weight-loss goals you are aiming for. My customizable eating plan offers everything you need to eat healthy, lose weight, and still feel satisfied! I have breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack suggestions for every day, shopping lists to make the grocery runs easy and effective, and you can even personalize the plan based on calories and your eating preferences. You can choose vegetarian, gluten-free, low sodium, and more. Join today and see how easy healthy eating can be once you create the right habits. I have smoothies, pasta dishes, sandwiches and tasty snacks. Most are simple and fast to make - and tasty, too!
