I've been on an improved nutritional regimen (diet) the past month and am happy to report having lost nearly 10 pounds. Making the right choices about what is going in my mouth is something I've been paying a lot of attention to lately. With the help of the library, I've found some delicious ways to stay on track and to keep motivated.
The library doesn't discriminate between weight loss plans - from Weight Watchers, Atkins, Mediterranean Diet and even Weight Loss Surgery. Books in these categories range from the entire diet plan to recipe books to keep things interesting. I like simple recipes that make just a few swaps in order to make the dish more healthy but still resembles foods I was cooking before.
Because the weather is getting colder, exercise DVD's are a great way to burn off some extra calories while staying in the warm, dry comfort of your own home. Check out Bhangra Aerobics, Shred-it With Weights or Yoga for the Rest of Us: Easy Yoga for Arthritis.
I know that exercise and diet are important but so is your mental attitude - Start Living, Start Losing: Inspirational stories that will motivate you now and Savor: mindful eating, mindful life can help you think about what you're doing!
