If you’ve decided to follow a diet, stick to it. An international nutrion and weight management specialist believes that there are things even the most sluggish of dieters can do to keep motivated.

Izzy Cameron gives out her top tips on the “lazy guide to dieting” to help you stick to your goals, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

* Keep breakfast simple: Dieting does not mean having to prepare fiddly or intricate food. Sometimes the simplest options are the best. For example, opt for porridge over sugary cereals for breakfast and make sure you add some fruit so you tick off one of your five a day before you reach your desk. Porridge is easy to make and will also help keep you full until lunchtime, so will prevent your reaching for the biscuits mid-morning.

* Exercise versus sleep: Incorporating exercise into your regime is important for healthy and sustained weight loss. However, experts agree that getting the correct amount of sleep is also important when managing your weight. When we are tired our bodies crave sugar and carbohydrates, and if it’s a case of waking up early to exercise but compromising on our sleep, then you should prioritise getting up later.

* Make some simple tweaks to your daily diet: Switch the morning coffee for a green tea – although most of us crave caffeine first thing in the morning, a cup of green tea will boost your mood and kick start your day. Choose low fat popcorn over crisps for lunch as it contains an eighth of the fat content that crisps do and you can have fun at home popping your own!

* Drink more water : Don’t confuse hunger with thirst, more often than not, that hungry feeling is simply our body’s cry for fluids. Before reaching for a snack, have a glass of water and see if this helps.

Switch the late night snack for a peppermint tea – drinking peppermint tea before bed will not only stop any late night cravings but will also help you get a better night sleep by releasing the tension in your muscles.

* Keep it simple: Soup is a quick and easy meal; what’s more, it’s healthy too. With so many combinations of flavours now available, it’s easy to expand the taste buds and try new foods whilst also ticking off some of your five a day. (Bollywood Country)

Ill-fitting clothes, unflattering photos and health concerns are the top three reasons why mothers are spurred on to lose weight, according to a survey.

New research shows that while a mother’s main priority for family meals is keeping everyone else healthy and happy, when it comes to their own diet, it’s more about how they look and feel, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

The survey, by Wholegrain Goodness, a site that promotes healthy eating, indicates that when mothers stray from their diet, the overwhelming feeling is that of guilt, but other feelings range from feeling fat, to happy, naughty and satisfied.

Commenting on the findings, psychologist Linda Papadopoulos said: “There are a number of factors behind the decision to try to lose weight, and sadly because we live in such a visual and image-driven society it’s no surprise that the results indicate that for many a big motivator is appearance.” (Bollywood Country)
