Reduce the carbs

If you have a diet rich in carbohydrates you will be unhappy  to hear this but carbs are the worst enemy to health. While they are great in small doses, if they take up 70% of the food you eat, it is time to cut down. You do not have to eliminate it. Everybody likes some plain rice once in a while but you can substitute it. Instead of white, try red rice. If you want pasta, try wholegrain pasta instead of the ones made using refined flour. Also control your portions, limit your carb intake to 1 cup for a meal. 1 cup of carbs is more than enough.

Workout often

Don’t just depend on your diet, try to include some workout regimen into your schedules. You don’t have to do it alone. Working out alone is difficult. Maybe team up with your friends or family. Many people are up for some exercise. Also try to get help from a professional. You can hire a pilates instructor singapore to teach you the ropes and help you with your posture when doing pilates. Having an instructor helps you focus better and be more motivated. So you are more likely to engage in the workout session.

Don’t eliminate sweets just reduce them If you have  a sweet tooth, you don’t have to forbid yourself from eating something sweet. Just make sure you don’t indulge yourself. And only reward yourself with sweets when you reach a goal or such. Maybe you could have 1 half of a slice of brownie to give your elf something sweet but also ensure that you don’t consume too much while satisfying your craving.
