We all want to be at our healthy weight and thankfully, we can! With just a few tricks and habits, I believe you’ll be on the right track of knowing how to get and maintain that healthy body. So check out these habits of people who never gain too much weight and let us know what you think!
Oh also! Read the very first post I wrote on the habits of people who never gain weight here. 🙂
1. You Don’t Have to Starve Yourself
While this may seem funny, it’s the truth. And some people will tell you to do this a lot, but that’s not what your body needs. Many people find that starving yourself, will only make you want to eat more and give in to binging.
All you have to do is aim for your healthy weight for your body type, that’s it! You don’t have to reach for impossible standards that’ll negatively impact your mental health. And it’s easy finding out what your healthy weight is by using this adult BMI calculator here.
2. Drink Enough Water
Water is good for the body, and thankfully, drinking enough water can help you maintain a good weight.
3. Regular Exercises
A maintained weight doesn’t come by accident or by just mere coincidence. It’s a practice, and to be sharp and healthy, you need frequent exercises especially in the areas you’re likely to gain excess weight (perhaps your stomach, glutes, etc.)
4. Avoid Sugar
The more sugar you take in, the harder it will be for you to lose weight. So it’s always a good idea to look at the ingredients of what you’re eating and see how much sugar it contains. If it has a high sugar content (or it’s something that doesn’t need added sugar like bread), feel free to look for sugar-free or low-sugar options.
5. Avoid Self-Hate
Why beat yourself up? This won’t help you reach your goals at all. It’s a good idea to start giving yourself love now and work on seeing yourself as attractive. Because once you get to the weight you’ve been aiming for, you’ll have a better appreciation that your worth doesn’t come from that.
Always make sure you have a good night’s rest; this not only helps you mentally but also physically. There are certain functions that our body does while sleeping that helps us to lose weight. So getting a proper amount of sleep each night will help you stay a healthy weight.
A lot of people don’t like to think about it, but drinking alcohol is a great way to take in empty calories and gain weight. So try finding healthier options that’ll help keep you sharp.
8. Don’t Overdo It on Cheat Days
It can be easy to think that we can just eat whatever we want on cheat days. And we can! But… how much of it are you eating? The best practice for cheat days is to make sure you’re not stuffing yourself sick and taking in thousands of calories. Just try to be moderate in everything you eat so that you don’t end up gaining the weight back.
Losing weight isn’t always the most fun, but in the long run, it’s definitely worth looking after your health! So give some of these habits a try and see how your body thanks you!
