Ask Coach Jackie: Can I “make up” for weekend splurges?

d6ae4a3b99eb526615eeaef1a888171f_5pkqAnswer: The weekend represents about 30 percent of the week, so too many slip-ups will put you on bad terms with the scale. Case in point: Dieters usually lose weight during the week, but stop losing weight on the weekend because they ate too much. By feasting on whatever you want on the weekend, you’ll cancel out five days’ worth of healthy eating. When it comes to shedding pounds, consistency is key. Aim to consume a similar number of calories on Tuesday as you would on Saturday. Weigh yourself on Friday and again on Monday. Any weight gain is a sign you shouldn’t have eaten the extra slice of pizza.

3 Healthful Weight Loss Tips

exercising1)                  Add half hour of exercise 6 days per week.  Get up early, power walk at lunch, take a fitness class, ride your bike, go for a jog.. no excuses, just do it!!! And you will feel better as exercise kicks up endorphins, the feel good chemicals.

2)                  Have a large breakfast, high in lean protein. Add fruit and veggies.  Check out my Quick and Healthy recipe link for ideas!!

3)                  Add 2 large salads daily with vinegar and little olive oil.  Go easy on the oil as it is high in calories and fat, but it is  necessary and healthy part of any nutrition program.
