In a 2015 study conducted by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), researchers found that more than 36 percent of Americans are still suffering from obesity despite the push to live a healthier lifestyle. It follows that there are more products and services now anchored on this problem. If you are currently attending a female weight loss program by The Fitter Female in Lexington, here are some things you can also do to help you lose weight and complement the program.
Consider lifting weights.
If your weight loss program has an exercise regimen available, consider asking your therapist and/or personal trainer if you can add some weight lifting activities. Weight lifting can help you burn extra calories. It can also help you keep your metabolism more stable, so it doesn’t slow down. Moreover, it can help tone your arms, legs, thighs, and muscle. It’s important to note that you don’t have to lift heavy weights regularly. You can start with a 3-pound or a 5-pound set of dumbbells until you trainer tells you that you’re ready to lift heavier weights.
Get some much-needed Vitamin D.
In one study, researchers found that people who spent more time soaking up the morning sunlight were able to lower their BMI better compared to individuals who didn’t. Vitamin D has been known to have a lot of health benefits but all the more, morning sunshine helps people keep their internal clock on a regular schedule. In turn, this helps them sleep better, and good quality sleep has been known to aid weight loss.
Keep a positive mindset.
Being overweight and/or obese, along with all the negativity that comes with the medical condition, can put a lot of negativity in your life. What’s important is that you keep a positive mindset and a strong dedication to any weight loss program you’re attending to help you achieve the desired results. A positive mindset can help you stay focused, and as they say, wherever the mind goes, the body will follow.
