by Gracie Allen Independent Health Consultant
Weight loss is something that we most likely will all struggle with at some point in our lives. Trying to lose weight for the first time it can be an extremely worrisome process. Losing weight, especially a large amount of weight is not easy and if it is the first time that you are embarking on a weight loss journey, it can seem difficult to know where to start. 

You can easily become overwhelmed. Struggling to lose weight can weigh heavily on your confidence level, your motivation, and your mental health in general. Keeping reading for seven simple tips for weight loss

1. Drink eight glasses of water per day
One thing that you absolutely must do if you want to lose weight is drink water. It keeps you hydrated, energized, and keeps the body functioning properly. When you don’t have enough water, you become lethargic, tired, and less motivated. It may seem like eight glasses of water per day is impossible, but it really isn’t. The first that you need to do is to start the day with a huge glass of water. You can even drink lemon water in the morning this will get you moving and it will also help with digestion thanks to the lemon. Water is also a better alternative to anything else that you are drinking. It is zero calories, zero preservatives, and all natural. You just can’t go wrong with a glass of water. 

2. Replace your coffee with herbal tea
Replacing your daily coffee with herbal tea is a great way to make a simple, healthy change to your diet. You will be consuming less calories, sugar, and other harmful properties. In the place of creamer and sugar you will be taking in herbal tea that is packed with antioxidants and nutrients that can aid digestion, protect the body from free radicals, and even boost metabolism which will help lose weight faster. It may take a few weeks or so for you to be okay with not having your coffee fix, but you’ll used to it eventually and you won’t even miss your cup of joe!

3. Do some form of exercise every single day
Although getting three days of exercise in a week is the recommended amount, you should boost it if you are trying to lose weight. Try as hard as you can to do some form of exercise every single day. It doesn’t matter if you are just going on a walk or you are going to a yoga session, just be active. This will help you burn a few extra calories on the days that you don’t have a gym session or a long run. It will also help you stay on track with our fitness goals. If you don’t have breaks in the days that you work out, you will be less likely to slip back into old habits of being inactive. 

4. Only weigh yourself once a week
You shouldn’t weigh yourself more than once a week if you want your diet plan to go smoothly. Sometimes we get so completely wrapped up in losing weight fast that we end up going a little crazy and getting obsessed. You may end up weighing yourself multiple times a day which just isn’t healthy. 

5. See a nutritionist
Companies and people like to promote diets that are sure to help anyone lose weight. But we all have different health backgrounds and different bodies, which means that we all need a diet that is tailored specifically for us. You should see a nutritionist, even if it is just for one session to gain guidance on the type of diet you should be eating for successful weight loss. 

6. Don’t follow weight loss accounts on social media
This is another tip that will help you stay focused on your own personal goals. Following fitness accounts on social media is meant to give you motivation, but often it just makes you distracted and causes you to compare yourself to everyone else. 

7. Write your goals down
Keep a log of your goals. Writing them down will help you stick to them and it will also remind you of the many things that you want to accomplish. It also gives you a way to measure your progress and keep track of what you have achieved. You can put them in a journal, a notebook, or even on sticky notes. They also don’t just have to be about your weight. They could also be about your fitness level, eating habits, and your level of confidence. 

Conclusion
These are just a few simple tips that may help you on your weight loss journey. You should try implementing one or all of them in your life to help you achieve your diet goals.
