Your Weight Loss Clock

I’m often asked for tips on boosting weight-loss success. While there’s no single answer that works for everyone, focusing on your diet and tuning up your exercise are two key elements for weight loss. Another? Having a plan. Start out the days by planning what healthy meals and exercise you can fit. There are also some things you can eat and do at certain times throughout the day to maximize your weight-loss success.

Here’s a sample day in the life of a successful dieter:

  • 6AM – Workout early. Those who exercise early are more active throughout the day and are less interested in food.
  • 6:45AM – Get some sun. Early morning sunshine has been shown to aid weight loss.
  • 7AM – Become mindful Tune into your body and helps stabilise your emotions, which will help reduce stress based eating.
  • 7:30AM – Eat a high protein breakfast. Eating a high protein breakfast will help you feel less hungry at lunch. Protein is slow to digest and increases feelings of fullness.
  • 8AM – Leave the car at home. Those who walk, cycle or take public transportation had lower BMI’s and body fat percentage than those who drove to work.
  • 10:30AM – Skip the mid morning snack. Those who snack mid motioning lost less weight than those who skip the snack.
  • 12-1PM – Eat your main meal. Research has shown that those who eat their main meal past 3pm lost 22% less weight than those who the earlier in the day.
  • 3PM – Last chance for caffeine. Drinking coffee too late in the afternoon can affect your sleep, which can lead to other hormonal issues and weight gain.
  • 6PM – Time for dinner. You should eat a meal consisting of 50% fruit and vegetables, 25% whole grains and 25% healthy proteins.
  • 9PM – Pre sleep snack. A nighttime snack such as low fat yogurt that contains tryptophan will help your brain produce serotonin that will ensure melatonin is produced, which will aid your sleep.
  • 9-10PM – Power down. For a better night sleep switch off the TV, laptop and hone ready for bed. To relax have a bath or read a book.
  • 10-11PM – Time for sleep. Research has found that those who sleep less than 7 hours a night were heavier than those who slept more.

      Glad you liked it Vidya. Here is another tip for you > You should try to have your lunch before 3 PM at all cost. As per a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers examined 300 dieters trying to lose weight and it was found that people who had their lunch earlier were able to shed more kilos.

      Most Welcome Kritika. Glad you liked it. If you begin your program with a lower starting BMI, you are likely to have less weight to lose and it will likely come off at a slower rate of about one to two pounds per week.

      Glad you liked it Suzette. Mostly, losing weight is an internal process. You will first lose hard fat that surrounds your organs like liver, kidneys and then you will start to lose soft fat like waistline and thigh fat. The fat loss from around the organs makes you leaner and stronger.

    I didn’t know about the high protein breakfast. I always thought it’s supposed to be a high carb breakfast for energy. Haha

      Haha now you know. Breakfast helps you balance out your protein Use breakfast to pump up your protein. Include eggs, milk, yogurt, cheese and lean meats in your morning meal. Another benefit of protein in the morning is that it’s likely to keep you full longer, as another study found.

      Glad you liked it. The time it takes for you to see and for others to notice weight loss results can vary from person to person. Many factors, including your starting size and your eating plan, can make a big difference. In general, however, many people can see results in one to two weeks when they stick to their plan.
