2017 is fast approaching which means it is time to make those New Year’s resolutions. If you are one of the many people who vow to lose weight for the new year but don’t want to spend the money on a gym membership, then you may be looking for some tips to lose your extra pounds at home. Here are a few tips to help you lose weight for the New Year without leaving the comfort and convenience of home.
Start With Your Diet
Arnold Schwarzenegger famously said it best that “abs are made in the kitchen.” If you want to lose weight in the New Year, the best way to start losing weight is right in your kitchen. Dana James, a nutritionist in New York City, states, “I always tell my clients that it’s 80 percent diet, 20 percent exercise.” Clean out all of the junk food from your fridge, freezer, and pantry and give it away to a skinny friend. Removing the temptation of sugary and salty foods will ensure that you don’t eat them. This New Year is all about a new you, so fill your fridge with fresh and seasonal produce. Have your pantry filled with healthy snacks, like nuts or dried berries.
Find Ways To Work Out At Home
Start finding ways to be more active as part of your daily ritual. If you have furry friends, start taking your dog for a daily walk either before or after work. If you are busy mom, try to take your kids out for an evening stroll after school to talk about their day. There are lots of fun ideas on how to be more active without a gym. You would also be surprised to see how inexpensive gym equipment is if you start to look at sites like Craigslist. Many people want to unload a weight set or elliptical machine for practically nothing. For a small amount of money, you can have a treadmill to use while you watch the nightly news.
Weight Loss Products And Programs
Many people are skeptics about weight loss products and programs that claim to lose weight but some people do swear that certain systems have worked for them and share success stories. Some programs promote juicing, others promote counting calories, some are strictly about diet or exercise or both. Do your research before you start a product or program that claims to help you lose weight. It is your body and you know what works best for you.
Not having a gym membership is not an excuse to help you get healthier and lose the weight for the New Year. Clean eating, exercise, and following certain products and programs can help you lose weight for 2017.
