12 Ways to Keep Your Weight Under Control

Weight management doesn’t need to be complicated, difficult, or a constant battle. If you’ve done your research and are really determined to keep it under control, it shouldn’t be a problem at all. You have to think to yourself, ‘what I want most, over what I want now’. What is it you want most? Read on for 12 ways to keep those pounds from creeping up on you!

  1. Drink Green Tea

If you eat 12 chocolate bars a day, please don’t think that drinking green tea will counter balance that. Green tea will simply speed up your metabolism, which can compliment a good diet and exercise!

  1. Eat Smaller Portions

Instead of eating huge portions, really start to think about the amount you’re eating. Vegetables should take up most of your plate, while meat should be about a fist.

  1. Eat More Meals

Eat more smaller meals rather than less large meals to stop you from snacking during the day. Your metabolism will keep running at a fast pace and you won’t be tempted by an afternoon biscuit.

  1. Drink Plenty of Water

Water can help us to feel fuller for longer. Sometimes, our bodies actually confuse hunger and thirst. Keep topped up on your H2O!

  1. Cut Down on Certain Foods

The more rubbish food you eat, the more your body craves it. If you can cut down on them, then you’ll naturally begin to crave them less. Don’t eat foods that are too high in sugar or chemicals. Never cut out carbs, but limit them if you’re eating too many.

  1. Nourish the Body

Your body should be nourished, so you should start by eating plenty of fruit, veg, and vitamins, say the guys at If something doesn’t do anything for your body (like an order of fries), you shouldn’t be eating it.

  1. Stop Focusing on the Scale

Although you want to manage those pounds, try not to focus on the scale. Being a few pounds heavier one day does not mean you’ve done something wrong. It could be anything, from water to that time of the month.

  1. Exercise

Exercise is one of the best ways after eating right to keep your weight under control. Do something you enjoy at least 3 times a week and keep it up!

  1. Be Consistent

Don’t give up. You can’t eat salads all week and then expect to be able to have Mcdonalds all the next. It’s about moderation and making sure the good outweighs the bad.

  1. Have the Right Mindset

Your mindset plays a big part in how you keep the pounds off. You should think positively, and know that this is for life and not just for summer!

  1. Don’t Deprive Yourself

If you really must have a treat, then have it. Just don’t over indulge, or mess everything else up as a result. This lifestyle needs to be sustainable, so treats will come as a part of that.

  1. Be Realistic

Finally, be realistic. You won’t reach your goals in one week. Probably not even a month. It takes time. Be patient!

Nobody cares about your weight as much as you do. Are you going to keep complaining, or do something about it?
