Drinking can be a problem to your health. If you’re worried about drinking, it can help to start out with a glass of water, then have one drink and two glasses of water between. In doing this, you will reduce the calories you are drinking, while also helping prevent dehydration. When you prevent dehydration, you can often prevent mindless snacking as thirst can sometimes feel like hunger. You will also want to call ahead to the place you are going to see what sorts of healthy options are available. When you do so, you will be able to plan ahead and know what you’re going to order before you get there. In fact, you don’t even need to look at a menu, helping to keep temptation even further away.
Do not want to be healthy alone? You might want to enlist the support of other friends who might be looking to lose weight as well. By creating a sort of contest, you can begin to change the way you hang out together – and you can begin to see who can be the healthiest instead of who can be the unhealthiest. Over time, you will find this gets easier and easier – and your health goals are easier to meet. Tracking your health goals can be easily done with Health Snapshot or another health monitor.
With your friends, you don’t need to give up on your healthy goals. You can simply choose to be different and while you might need to endure some gentle teasing, this is going to be minimal once they begin to see the results you are getting.
