Exercise is a great way to get fit, but it will only contributes to 20% of your weight loss, the other 80% of your weight loss is all about your diet.Here are some tips:
1.Eating smaller portions is a great way to start. Try 3 meal a day with snacks in between your meals if your hungry. Every meal should have 1/2 you plate as vegetables, 1/4 plate as protein (meat, fish, eggs, etc), and 1/4 plate grains (should be whole grains)- look up or google the usda plate method to see what a plate should look like .
2. Also, look at the drinks you are consuming. Liquid calories add a significant amount of calories to your diet but will not satisfy you. Things like juice, chocolate milk, soda, and cream and sugar that is added to coffee. So the main thing you should be drinking is water. you can also decrease the fat percentage of your milk, if your drinking 2% milk you can go down to 1% or Skim milk.
3.How often do you eat out at restaurants? there are a ton of hidden calories in restaurant food (not only fast food, but all food that you dont cook at home),
4.In addition to this, when you start to lose weight, you may start having an increase in low blood sugar (in part due to being more sensitive to insulin). Your health care professional may have to adjust your insulin/basal rates so you dont go low, or you will be consuming a lot of calories to cover the lows,
