While office work and schoolwork consume a good part of America, there has been an increase in challenges with weight loss and maintaining a healthy physique. Most people think that working from home allows more free time for working out and preparing healthy meals, but even fitness professionals unwittingly fall into a more sedentary role, which translates into a failed weight loss plan. Working from home gives us the convenience of not leaving the house, but it also means that we’re simply not moving as much as we need to accomplish our weight loss goals!

In preparation for the change in lifestyle, here are some tips to keep in mind as you incorporate a weight loss plan into your daily lives.
Don’t Work in Sweatpants
Since working from home means privacy and comfort, many people choose to wear loose clothing like sweatpants. However, loose or stretchy clothing expands with your body, so we often don’t realize that our bodies are slowly growing bigger since our clothes grow with us. Put on more fitting pants like jeans or slacks once you start working. This is a great way to quickly check if your waistline is expanding. When it’s time to give your weight loss plan some attention, just like going to the gym on your lunch break, change clothes, workout, shower, and then get back into your work clothes and go back to work.
When your clothes don’t fit anymore, then you know it’s time to cut back on the snacking and start a weight loss plan. Call EZCare Clinic in San Francisco to schedule an appointment for a consultation to begin your weight loss plan today.
Put Unhealthy Snacks Out of Sight
At the office, there may be a box of donuts sitting in the break room and you’ll be tempted cheat your weight loss plan and indulge. You may only take one at work because the donuts should be shared with the rest of your colleagues, but donuts at home are different. Sure donuts are one thing and healthy snacks are another. Working from home gives you direct access to all your favorite snacks with the freedom to take as much as you want whenever you want. The key to snacking while working at home is to eat healthy snacks such as carrots, celery, cucumber, and even snow peas. You can eat these all day without worrying about adding extra pounds. Remember, an important aspect of weight loss is eating healthy.
Putting them out of sight (or out of the house completely), however, drastically decreases the chances that you might just reach over and grab a few extra bites.
Make Regular Homemade Meals
When we’re working from home, it’s easy to miss a meal because we’re engulfed in our work. However, doing this hurts your weight loss plan by creating insatiability in your appetite. You’re more likely to gorge yourself on carb-heavy food when you haven’t eaten all day. Doing so will disrupt your weight loss plan. Spend a few hours on the weekend or in the morning preparing easy, healthy meals. This will help you maintain your weight loss plan and it will help you remain consistent with meals. Keeping a regular meal schedule and sticking to it can help you control your appetite and meal sizes.

Take Walking Breaks
Working for more than three hours is bad for your posture. Unfortunately, we don’t think about that when we’re working from home. A good weight loss plan includes consistent exercise. Instead of sitting for long periods of time in front of the desk or on the couch, put on your comfortable shoes and go for a quick walk down the street. Walking during your break promotes blood circulation and, in exchange, supports your weight loss. Also, exercise and fresh air can help improve blood circulation to the brain, giving your creativity a boost at the same time.
Walking and consistent exercise are simple to maintain, but people can forget just as easily. That’s why at EZCare Clinic we make it easy for you to remember. Schedule an appointment at EZCare Clinic for a consultation to begin your weight loss plan today.
Be Dedicated to Work and Weight Loss
Without anyone else around to witness your habits, it’s simple to let yourself skip workouts and be lazy. However, holding yourself accountable is an important aspect of working from home. Entrepreneurs understand dedication to their work and balancing personal life with business, but their weight loss plans often suffer. Fitness tracker apps with reminders and daily goals are excellent ways to stay up-to-date with your schedule. Dedication to your workout and your business can be accomplished through keeping it simple. Studies have shown that beginning with challenging workout plans rather than gradually working into a plan is almost a surefire way to fail. Try a 30-day challenge as a fun way to introduce a new exercise habit at home. This is a great way to stay motivated and maintain your work schedule.
It’s easy to start a new weight loss routine but it’s harder to maintain it. The doctors at EZCare Clinic can recommend positive ways to on track and find motivation with weight loss plans at home. Change the way you approach weight loss and you’ll find success.
