Weight Loss Tips for Health and Wellness

Staying healthy and fit is a goal most of us would like to achieve, and even harder, maintain. While there is not a "magic" pill we can take to make this happen (maybe someday), there are some simple and pain-free strategies we can use to help us along the way.
Never grocery shop when hungry! EVERY aisle will be a temptation because EVERYTHING seems like it will taste fantastic. Your hunger will encourage you to make selections you normally might not choose. And with that thought in mind, on those nights that you "crave" the junk food; if it is not there, you cannot eat it.
Never let yourself get too hungry! Small, healthy snacks throughout the day can actually prevent you from eating as much during your "main" meals. When you are hungry, your body secretes the hormone Ghrelin. This hormone lets your stomach know its hungry; unfortunately, it can take up to 30 minutes for the Ghrelin levels to come down. Imagine all the food you can consume during that half hour!
Never skimp on your sleep! Allow an adequate time to sleep to insure your body is getting into the "deep" sleep phase. Having a consistent sleep schedule will help your body prepare for a good night's rest. We need sleep to repair, heal and cope with everyday stress.
Never stop exercising! If you are physically able, you need to exercise. Being active, maintaining muscle strength and increasing your endurance, will add energy and health to your life.
Never give up on reaching your weight loss and wellness goals! Be realistic. Be prepared to have "one of those" days where you may lose focus... it happens to us all. Just get back on task the next day and move forward.
Self control is the best option; however, most of us may need a little help. There are a few safe appetite suppressants on the market today, with little to no risks or side effects. Garcinia Cambodia, Raspberry Ketone, Green Coffee Bean, and Hoodia are just a few of the weight loss supplements available over the counter. If you have medical issues, discuss with your doctor prior to using any weight loss supplement.
Keep in mind, an appetite suppressant is not magic; you will need to make your own lifestyle changes with long term goals in mind. Making these few adjustments EVERY DAY could be the solution to years of healthy living and a lifetime of wellness.
Remember... it's your life... your health... live well!
