1) Return to homemade food: Home cooking is always healthier. There is lower calorie count and no hidden or empty calories since you are in charge of what you will be preparing. Having homemade food also reduces your intake of sodium and sugar that is used in excess when you eat outside.

Also an extra tip I can share with you  is to not eat a heavy meal very late at night. Your metabolism begins to decelerate towards the end of the day, and when you eat late you’re much more likely to put on weight because your body doesn’t have a chance to burn off those extra calories. Remember food is energy for our body, use it wisely. 

2)  Drink extra water:  Try to always carry water with you and drink at least 6 to 8 glasses of water every day, or more if you exercise. I highly recommend cutting down alcohol. What I do is to drink alcohol only once a week (not more than 2 drinks), and usually is wine or a light beer.  

3) Begin a Workout Routine, move your body:  Exercise may not get the excess weight off super fast, but it can help a lot in transitioning to a healthier lifestyle and can help burn extra calories. Exercising consistently is definitely a good idea and, along with a good nutrition program, will help you burn a lot more calories. 

Make exercise a priority in your schedule: Try adding a total-body strength routine to your existing workout at least 3  days a week.

 In my experience doing 30 min of exercise per day, with a middle – intensity workout, your body reacts in an excellent way. That’s why I am launching this amazing program: Fit30, to share with you a proven method to maintain a healthy and fit lifestyle. 

4) Get a good rest every day: When we are on vacation or off the routine,  we usually are more flexible about our night sleep schedule, so it’s time to put everything in the right place. Getting enough sleep isn’t only about total hours of sleep. It’s also important to get good-quality sleep on a regular schedule so you feel rested when you wake up. The regular adult needs between 6 to 8 hours sleep per day to recover from the day.  

An extra tip that I have been trying in my training programs is having a support team to share your goal, and your breakdowns, get motivated, and learn more about this healthy journey that can make losing weight easier.   In Fit30 we will have an exclusive community for all the participants, where we will be sharing day by day our experiences in the program and in our daily routine. I will be leading the group and giving all my tips and tricks to stay focused and get extraordinary results. Join us!
