Everyone is in the midst of trying to eat healthier now that the holidays have ended and New Year's Resolutions have started.
From joining gyms to hiring personal trainers, buying smoothie machines or investing in a weight loss program, consumers are clamoring to find anything and everything that might help them lose a few extra pounds and get healthier this year.
What often ails the masses as it relates to weight loss or getting healthier is the combination of time management and simply overlooking the obvious. Weight loss is a lot like saving money; you tend to overcomplicate what at the heart is something rather simple.
You should spend less than you make, right? Seems easy enough but the lack of preparation and organization makes that simple money saving mantra overly complex for most of us. The same could be said for weight loss. You have to realize that when you sit down for lunch and opt to pass on the grilled chicken sandwich in favor of a slice of pizza that you aren't doing your diet or waistline any favors as you attempt to shrink a few pants or dress sizes.
Maybe not quite as obvious, however, is the idea that skipping meals actually is more harm than good when it comes to weight loss. Of course, the less calories you intake, the easier it is to lose weight. But limiting calories comes with a caveat that you need to take note of: you want to increase the frequency with which you're eating.
