If you live in or near Tulsa, Oklahoma, you have access to a supervised weight loss program at Grassroots Healthcare. Our expert team helps you make lifestyle and nutrition changes that improve your body composition and overall health. In this blog, we offer some tips on how to lose weight and get ready for the upcoming holidays.

Tip # 1: Get more sleep

Countless studies and research supports that adequate sleep makes it easier to lose weight and maintain the loss. Try using your phone’s bedtime alarm to get to bed 15 minutes earlier tonight. After you adjust to your new bedtime, move it 15 minutes earlier. Over the course of a week, you’ll gain almost two hours of extra slumber. 

Tip # 2: Add in exercise

A little bit of exercise goes a long way to boost your metabolism, strengthen your muscles, and tone your flabby areas. Walking, running, biking, and hiking are great ways to decompress after a long day at work or school. If scheduling is a problem, try an app like 7 that helps you get in a quick full-body workout in only seven minutes.

Tip # 3: Drink more water

Water cleanses your body of toxins, amps up your body’s fat-burning processes, and helps suppress your appetite and keep you satiated. It’s a tried-and-true method for increasing weight loss.

Tip # 4: Talk to a professional

This is where we come in. Our team works with you to find the root cause of your weight issues, whether it’s portion sizes, food choices, a hormone imbalance, or an underlying health condition. She’ll customize a program for you that factors in your health and medical history, your goals, and your lifestyle.
