    Those burgers, fries, donuts and other unhealthy foods can make it difficult to control your weight. Unfortunately, diet isn’t the only culprit in having extra pounds in your body. There’s your lifestyle that can also cause you to have the flab that you hate.

    For that reason, the best way to get rid of the extra fats is to create a new normal. Reaching and maintaining a healthy weight is most likely to happen if you change your overall habits. This means you have to ditch your old, unhealthy attitudes.

    Here’s a list of things that you can do to reach your goal:

    Get regular exercise

    It doesn’t matter whether you walk, run or jog. These methods can help you burn calories while building muscles. Increasing your daily activities can surely make a difference. Don’t focus too much on cardio exercises. Rather, you should also include strength training in order to build muscle. Keep in mind that losing weight isn’t all about getting rid of the extra pounds but it’s also about building muscles.

    Know portion sizes

    Yeah, the big Mac and the large-sized fries can give you satisfaction. But they’re the cause you’re having this problem of your weight. If you want to reach your ideal weight, then you’ll have to learn how to choose smaller sizes and opt for healthier choices, like water. That is, if you’re thirsty, you can always reach for water, rather than soda or juice drink.

    Eat more fruit and vegetables

    These products contain a lot of vitamins and minerals that your body needs. They’re filled with fiber that can further help you feel full. When you fill your plates with fruits and veggies, you’ll less likely to eat a lot.

    Choose to consume more protein

    Compared with carbohydrates and fats, protein is more satisfying. That said, it’s more effective in controlling your weight. This is one of the reasons people who opt for a high protein diet lose more weight faster than those who choose to eat moderate amount of carbs. One of its reasons is that protein helps in preserving muscle mass while encouraging burning of fats.

    Store healthier convenience foods

    You’ll less likely to call in a pizza order if you have a healthy meal that you can easily prepare within 10 minutes, like a healthy chocolate shake. Stock your kitchen with these items: healthy chocolate shake, frozen veggies, canned beans, grilled chicken breasts, pre-cooked brown rice and so on. Toss some of them together to make a healthy medley.
