our top tips to losing weight...
Exercise is one of the most effective ways to help you lose weight. Not only does it help with weight loss, it can also improve your overall health and mental well-being.
Any form of exercise is better than none. If you are new to exercise, we recommend you gradually ease yourself into a regular exercise regime. It is recommended that you perform some form of exercise every day whether that be going for a walk or run, visiting the gym or playing sport.
Maintain a healthy diet
Maintaining a healthy diet and eating foods in moderation can increase your chances of losing weight. Continuing these health eating habits during and even after your weight loss journey, will also help with your overall health and well-being.
Some of the ways you can improve your eating habits is to:
Reduce portion sizes
Eat at regular times
Don't skip meals
Limit foods high in saturated fats
Be aware of 'non-hungry' eating
