HEALTHY HABITS LEAD TO A HEALTHY WEIGHT. WHERE DO YOU FALL?

 

 

 

HEALTHY HABITS REQUIRES BALANCING

  • HEALTHY EATING
  • PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
  • RESTORATIVE SLEEP

HEALTHY EATING STARTS WITH BREAKFAST– We should eat our first meal of the day within 30-60 minutes upon waking.

We have all heard breakfast was the most important meal of the day. We made our kids eat breakfast. But many of us, skip it, just grabbing that cup of coffee as we rush out the door. Do you know why you should eat breakfast and why it is a key to losing weight? IT JUMP STARTS OUR METABOLISM.

By breaking the fast, we get our metabolism fired up. Fired up metabolism means we start burning calories.

 

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY IS DIFFERENT THAT EXERCISE- Learn how to burn more calories through your daily activities so calories in matches your calories expended.

Total Energy Expenditure (TEE) -Determine exactly how many calories you need to consume to  lose or maintain your weight.

 

 

HOW MUCH SLEEP IS ENOUGH? -The consensus is that women require six to seven hours and men seven to eight hours for optimal health. Lack of sleep contributes significantly to obesity.
