Weight loss tips for summer

As the weather warms here in Toronto many of us try to lose the extra winter layer of fat that has built up.  Our team of in home personal trainers specialized to work with people over 50 can customize a weight loss program for you and take you through it step by step.

Here are five of the best weight loss tips for people over 50:

  1. Stop focusing on the number on the scale: Weight can fluctuate by 2 pounds throughout the course of the day depending how hydrated you are, your bowel movements and the time of day.  Instead of focusing on the number on the scale, measure body fat either with a device or a calculation.  Healthstatus.com has a good one http://www.healthstatus.com/calculate/body-fat-percentage-calculator
  2. Set an activity goal instead of a weight goal: Think about what the impact of losing weight will have for your life and set an activity goal as opposed to simply a weight loss goal.  If you are up for a challenge Spirit 50 has partnered with Spartan Race Canada to offer you a free race.  Type in SPRE703 to redeem.
  3. Don't drink your calories: Juice, frothy coffees, pop, sports drinks and alcoholic drinks have limited nutritional value and tons of calories.  Stick to water made more interesting with lemon and lime wedges and herbal teas.
  4. Eat lean protein at every meal and snack: Things like lean meat, almonds, cottage cheese, protein powder in a shake and tofu should be a part of every meal and snack to keep you feeling full and keep your blood sugars stable which will reduce sugar cravings.
  5. Eat dinner for lunch: Anytime it fits into your day eat the majority of your calories during the first half of your day.  This will give your body a chance to use these calories during the rest of your day instead of having a big meal at dinner.

Good Luck,
