How can i lose weight during the winter?

It's not that I'm exactly "fat" but I would like to be slimmer.

sit-ups, crunches, leg lifts, and those kinds of exercises bore me to death, and my sports are all in the spring and fall.

so how can i lose weight during this time of year?

(preferably ab workouts?)

    The Acai berry (pronounced ah-sigh-e) has been turned into a juice and used for thousands of years in Amazon basin in South America for all sorts of medicinal purposes. Many tribes in the Amazon forest have used Acai berries that are grown in the mineral rich soil of the Amazon rain forest for boosting immune and sexual function, fighting infection, and for providing energy. In fact, the Brazilians call Acai the Viagra of the Amazon. The Acai berry is a type of palm fruit, and is known to be rich in antioxidants, minerals, B vitamins, vitamin E, essential omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids and more. It contains many times higher levels of anthocyanins (powerful antioxidants) than those found in red wine. It also has large amounts of naturally occurring plant sterols, which help boost immune function and have been shown to help all sorts of conditions, including allergies, joint inflammation and chronic fatigue.

    Oprah Recommends Acai Berry

    Because of all this, the Acai berry and Acai juice is becoming more and more well known in the USA and also in Europe. Perhaps starting with the NBC Today show in 2004 and continuing with Oprah Winfrey Show segments, Acai has become the darling of the health world. In fact, Oprah said: Whatever your favorite berries are (blueberries, cranberries, etc.), Acai 'out-antioxidizes' them all, hands down! She called Acai the number 1 superfood. But is Acai really all it's cracked up to be?

    Hi,

    Try the following:

    1.Eat 4-6 small meals a day. Small frequent meals increases your metabolism.

    2.If you are still hungry after eating wait 20-30minutes. This is how long it takes for your body to respond to a full stomach.

    3.Exercise at least 30minutes everyday. Exercise should be of moderate to high intensity, for example jogging with walking intervals. You don't have to train for a long time to get results.

    Try this website, it has some great programs that can help you lose weight without going to a gym or paying heaps of $$$ on personal training, www.audioconditioning.com

    4. Do some resistance training. Weight training increases your metabolism and ability to burn fat. Again intensity must be moderate to high to gain maximum benefits.

    Hope this helps.

    EAT SOME PROTIEN AT EACH MEAL & AS A SNACK

    In addition to everything that抯 been discussed before, eating protein helps you burn more calories. Jeff Hample, Ph.D., R.D., a spokesman for the American Dietetic Association says that, "Protein is made up mainly of amino acids, which are harder for your body to breakdown, so you burn more calories getting rid of them.?

    Just think ?eating a protein rich snack can help you lose weight. How about a few slices of turkey or ham or some string cheese?

    Eating protein will also help you feel full so that you are less likely to crave unhealthy snacks.

    Build in some fave foods

    It’s fine to build some fave foods into your healthy diet plan. Successful slimmers do it as it helps them avoid feeling deprived. Make sure you choose quality foods that you really feel like eating (do you fancy sweet, savoury, crunchy, creamy at that time?), sit down, eat slowly and savour them.

    Deciding on what you will truly enjoy (and knowing that you can have it again another time if you want to) adds satisfaction and means you’re likely to be happy with a small amount.

    I've lost 5 kilos in my first week. It's my 10th day and I have included salad with some protein (eg. egg/ lean chicken) as you suggested. After 4 years of trying, the fat is finally coming off. It truly feels like magic!

    Get started today!

    It takes ? hour for the message to get from your stomach to your brain when you're full. Because of this, simply take small portions to start. It's easier to do when you know in ? hour you can go back for more if you still want some. But you won't.
