Cup with green tea and green leaves.People jump headfirst into a healthy lifestyle after years or even decades of living a not-so-healthy one. It can be done, but there’s a learning curve and more often than not, people fail and see themselves right back where they started. This discourages them and they begin to think that ‘healthy’ is too much work. So how do you avoid this vicious cycle?

1. Switch out one not-so-healthy meal with a better alternative.

Instead of going 100% clean, try and see how you adjust to just having one clean meal first. So instead of driving by a fast food joint on the way home from work, stop by the grocery instead and whip up something from scratch for dinner.

2. Ditch the sugary drinks and sodas for fruit-infused water.

Sometimes the effect of sugary drinks and sodas come from its color; you see color, so you automatically expect flavor. Unlike with water, you have a pretty good idea of what you’re getting taste-wise. To cheat this a little bit, infuse your waters with colorful fruits. Try a mixed berry water or a lemon-lime combo. As a bonus, you get to munch on the fruits once you’re done sipping on your drink.

3. Trade in one of your snacks for a cup of green tea.

Green tea is packed with antioxidants and has many weight loss benefits. The caffeine also helps with fat mobilization as well. If you find yourself snacking constantly throughout the day, try to cut down one snack at a time and replace that with one cup of green tea. This will still occupy your taste buds, but without the additional calories. Over time, just cutting a snack worth 100-200 calories a day will rack up the numbers, resulting in weight loss without much effort.

There you have it! A few simple ways to help you lead a healthy lifestyle the sustainable way. Don’t be caught up with the numbers, what’s important is that you’re seeing progress and you’re in it for the long haul. Contact our clinic in Savannah for more information!
