If losing a few pounds would make you feel better then it’s usually worth a little additional effort. If the thought of going to the gym makes you want to weep, don’t panic we’re here to help!
We’ve asked Sgt Armstrong, an army physical training instructor with a degree in strength and conditioning for a lazy lady’s guide to losing weight. Here were his top five tips;
Eat Little and Often
Eat often you say? I think we can all do that! Seriously though, Sgt Armstrong says “you’re better to eat little and often rather than two or three larger meals as your body will digest all the fats and nutrients rather than storing them as excessive fat”
Unfortunately he wasn’t talking about the fermented grape variety of hydration. Sgt Armstrong says “you’ve heard it before but drink water, it stops you feeling hungry all the time!”.
Walk Instead Of Using The Car
If you really must head to the shop for a Galaxy Hazelnut (and there are times when you must, ahem) then at least get there under your own steam and burn some calories while you’re at it.
Swimming is a great all over body workout which most people find quite enjoyable. It’s also low impact.
Take The Stairs
Switch to using the stairs instead of the lift. Sgt Armstrong says, “all these little changes add up, start with taking the stairs and then find other ways to move more – you’ll soon notice a difference”
