Who would have thought that brushing your teeth is not only good for oral hygiene, but also for weight loss? Research has shown that brushing your teeth after you eat slows your appetite, and you will also be less likely to want to eat so you keep that fresh, just-brushed feeling for a while.
To help you lose weight, add walking into your day. Do you have children you pick up from school? Simply park a few blocks away instead of picking them up at the front door of the school. Do you commute to work by car? Park as far away as possible from your work and walk the rest of the way. Do you catch the bus to work? Pick a bus stop that is a block or two farther away from your home. Invest a little time and a few dollars for good walking shoes and walk those pounds away by adding additional walking time into your day.
To easily make exercise a key component of your weight loss routine, you should exercise first thing in the morning before doing anything else. Typically, for even the most organized person, things can and do come up throughout the day that interfere with the best laid plans to exercise. By exercising first thing in the morning, even if everything else goes wrong during the day, you will have accomplished that task.
Test yourself with a 10-pound dumbbell. Hold up a dumbbell and feel how much weight you will be eliminating from your body. You should find this enough motivation to get this out of your body as soon as possible.
