Changing Mindset

Many people take to tracking calories and fat when dieting, including reading labels in hopes of getting healthy. However, many find that they fail in seeing results on the scale. Tracking calories and fat alone, may not always be the best bet in a fat loss journey. 

Considering Muscle Mass

The scale is not always the best indicator of health. Increased muscle mass might actually make the scale go up, but this is not necessarily a bad thing. Having a good body fat percentage along with lean muscles is the ideal goal regardless of an increase on the scale. It’s best to find other ways to measure progress and success. 

Monitor Meals

Take a look at eating habits, 90 percent of meals should be a whole food based diet that include greens, healthy fats, berries, and lean proteins. Sugar should be limited and having three formal meals a day is ideal. Consider fiber intake as well, which plays a large part in gut health. 

Sleep Is Important

Getting proper sleep is directly correlated to health and weight management. Thousands of studies have been conducted on sleep and staying at a healthy weight. Proper sleep includes stages of sleep including times of resting and awake, REM, light and deep sleep. 

Concluding Thoughts

Melissa recommends tracking your meals and which foods are included in those meals, as well as tracking sugar intake. She also suggests tracking how and when sleep happens. Fiber intake and bowel movement tracking is also important. Include mood when tracking all of these items. These steps will help lead to a more sustainable lifestyle and understanding what is needed to become a healthy person.
