You are already on the right track if you want to know how to lose weight by the end of the year. Most people wait until the beginning of the year to set goals, one of which is to lose weight. However, after a short time, many forget what their goal was. If you change what you did before, you can get better results that will help you at parties and in the future.
Here’s a list of easy ways to lose weight in the next few months, so you can get started on a better routine.
Set a goal
Yes, but only within reason, and it shouldn’t be all about how many kilos to lose. For example, a goal could be to start working out for only 10 to 15 minutes a day, to stick to a single routine for a week or two, or to stop eating junk food for a month. These smaller challenges will help you stay motivated, and then you can set a weight goal.
A good goal for the end of the year is to just get in the habit of exercising every day for at least 30 minutes. What you accomplish will be a bonus, and by the end of the year, you’ll be used to the activity, making it easier to set more specific goals.
Make the necessary changes in your diet
If you know you’re eating foods that aren’t very healthy or have a lot of calories, it’s time to make a change. In fact, if you want to see results from training, you need to make changes to your diet.
For this, you should talk to a nutritionist who can help you set up a plan to help you lose weight (and no, it is not always necessary to give up things you like).
Do not fall for the cravings of the end of the year
Essential. Day of the Dead has already happened in Mexico, and all the food for New Year’s Eve is coming, from the posadas to Christmas dinner, meetings and meals with friends, New Year’s dinner, and more. Here, the best thing to do is try to keep the same amount of food and drink that we would have every day. These meals make us want to eat more, which means we’ll take in more calories and gain weight before the end of the year.
You can eat traditional foods for the end of the year, but try to keep it light and not eat too much. This is also true for drinking alcohol, which can also have a high number of calories.
If you decide to start working out from now on, stick with it. The most important thing is to get motivated so you can go to the gym or train at home every day or the days that mark your routine. As we said, this will mean that by January you will have a good base of physical activity and will be able to keep going if you want to lose weight.
In general, anyone who wants to lose weight or do any kind of routine or training needs to be persistent and committed. And it’s best to change before the New Year, since it’s easy to give up on resolutions.
Continue after the start of the year
A crucial point. If you spent the last part of the year getting used to being active, keep it up at the start of the year. One reason it’s hard to keep resolutions is that the beginning of the year is usually busy and we’re tired. This makes us less likely to exercise, but if you start exercising early and stick with it, you can keep it as part of your routine without feeling the weight of the new year.
