If you are trying to go for effective weight loss, chances are you want to it to last. Fad diets may help lose pounds in the beginning but you will eventually hit a standstill and once you resume your regular diet, the weight comes back.

The best strategies for effective weight loss management are to make healthier eating choices combined with a great exercise routine. Let’s look at seven weight loss management strategies that are effective. 

Drinking Water before Meals

Water is great in itself to keep your body hydrated and your electrolytes in balance. Drinking water before meals also partially fills up your stomach so you are less likely to overeat. As a bonus, drink water on an empty stomach to flush out your body’s toxins as well. 

Consume High Fiber and High Protein Meals

Food sources rich in fiber and protein take longer to digest, so your stomach stays full for longer. High fiber foods also aid your digestive system and trap calories. On the other hand, high protein foods are like fuel for your body which helps with muscle building.  

Eating Multiple Times during the Day

It’s a myth that snacking between meals makes you gain weight. If you don’t eat throughout the day, your body won’t have enough fuel and you will tire easily. Snacks have a bad reputation because when you think of snacks, you think of a bag of chips or a packet of cookies. It doesn’t have to be that way. You can snack on healthy items as well without increasing your calorie intake.  

Reasonable Exercise Routine

You don’t have to lift heavy weights or run a marathon for effective weight loss management. Many people avoid the gym because they are not able to fit a workout routine in their schedule. However, exercise is really important if you want to effectively lose weight. Set aside at least twenty minutes every day for some cardio workout. 

Downsize Dinnerware

Our mind associates empty spaces on a plate as less food, so we fill up our plate no matter what size. To decrease overall food intake, use smaller plates. Smaller plates will have smaller portions of food and smaller portions of food mean fewer calories for your body. 

Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

Our sweet tooth is a like a toddler, it wants what it can’t have. Thus, every now and then, satisfy your sweet tooth (with healthy foods of course). Fresh fruit smoothies, honey and nuts make great ingredients to sweeten recipes. For example, top off your morning oatmeal with berries and honey, or add some seasonal fruits to one serving of Greek yogurt. 

Record Your Weight Loss Goals

Quantify all your goals by writing down how much weight you want to lose in a certain period of time. Writing it down makes it more real and verifiable. You are more likely to commit to something when you record it rather than following a weight management routine without knowing how far you want to go. Also record how far you have come along to give yourself a boost of confidence and motivation to keep going.
