Every January, millions of people make a New Year’s resolution to lose weight. Most of these people are women, for whom such a resolution precedes all others.
But losing weight in a sustainable manner and without risk to health is easier said than done. To succeed, we must develop new habits regularly and at the right pace.
Indeed, the main reason we fail is when we do too much too soon, rapidly exhausting our motivation. So we should avoid all crash diets and focus instead on a gradual loss of 1-2 pounds per week. This will lead to a loss of around forty pounds by the end of June, in time for summer clothes.
By changing your habits this way, you will gradually transform your body and attack the root of the problem. You’ll lose the extra weight permanently and turn into a different person.
That’s why I’m presenting five meals this week from SOSCuisine’s meal plans for weight loss. As usual, they are easy to make, tasty, varied and they make the most of flyer specials. What’s more, they will help you lose weight without risk of deficiencies and without getting hungry between meals!
