It’s February, which means many New Year’s resolutions focusing on losing weight are starting to hit the skids. Let’s face it: losing weight is tough…really tough. But it doesn’t have to be, especially if you make a few little changes in your regular routine.
In fact, there are a handful of tiny lifestyle tweaks that can make a huge difference when you make your way to the scale. It can be as simple as choosing a different beverage or making a different decision when it comes to lunch…
1. Drink Coffee
Coffee containing caffeine can raise your energy levels, which comes with several crucial benefits. First, it’s more likely to get you off the couch and doing something active, like running, riding a bike, or hitting the gym. Second, it can help you stay active longer, meaning you won’t quit and head back to the living room the moment you feel a little tired.
The trick, of course, is to make sure you’re not loading up your cup of coffee with sugar and high-fat cream. Try to use milk and, if you simply must flavor your coffee, all-natural honey.
