Five easy weight-loss habits
Eat a balanced breakfast
Most cereals are packed with sugar. You don’t want to start the day by filling your stomach with empty carbs that’ll make their way to your hips.
Start your day with a decent breakfast.
Incorporate lean protein, healthy fats (e.g. eggs, unsweetened Greek yogurt, nuts, or nut butters), and fibre (e.g. vegetables, fruit, or 100% whole grains) into your meal.
Eating a balanced breakfast will help you achieve successful weight loss.
Here are some examples:
- Overnight Oats with Chia Seeds and Almond Butter
- Egg and Avocado Toast
- Greek Yogurt with mixed berries, nuts and seeds
- High-protein smoothie with spinach, Manna Low-GI Shake, and nut butter.
The Manna Low GI Shake is the healthiest shake on the South African market and has helped tremendous amounts of people lose weight.
This shake helps curb cravings, suppresses appetite, and controls blood sugar levels. A glass of Manna Low-GI Shake mixed with water contains only 99 calories making it the perfect shake for weight loss.
Extra puffiness around your tummy can be uncomfortable. Eating more potassium, magnesium, and calcium can help counter bloating caused by sodium. Leafy greens, “orange” fruits and vegetables (oranges, sweet potatoes, carrots, melon), bananas, tomatoes, and cruciferous vegetables like cauliflower are foods that are high in potassium. Low-fat dairy, nuts, and seeds can also help reduce bloating.
Manage your blood sugar levels
There is a direct link between high blood sugar levels and weight gain. Lots of food in our Western diet can cause high blood sugar levels. If your blood sugar levels are constantly high, you might struggle to control your cravings. Intense cravings make it almost impossible to resist temptations like chocolate, doughnuts, fatty fast food, and other carb-rich foods.
To keep your blood sugar levels stable, you’d want to avoid eating highly processed foods and rather opt for foods rich in fibre.
If you struggle with cravings, try Manna Blood Sugar Support. This unique product has helped thousands of people stabilise their blood sugar levels and curb cravings. With Manna’s help, you can make healthier food choices and lose weight!
Keep track of what you eat
Studies have shown that keeping tabs on what you eat is a powerful tool for managing weight. If you want to lose weight, keep track of what you eat and drink on a daily basis. Writing down these items in a journal or by using an online food tracker aid in weight loss success.
Some examples of food trackers you can download:
Enjoy your exercise time
Burning calories is crucial for weight loss; you burn calories by moving your body. But don’t suffer through an exercise routine that you abhor. Rather choose fun activities.
Try dance lessons or play tennis with friends. Go on regular hikes or join a trampoline fitness class.
Be creative! Make your workouts enjoyable.
Also, try to make your workout sessions convenient. If you don’t have time, try short online workouts. Many quick cardio workouts on YouTube take less than 10 minutes to complete.
You can also squeeze some exercise in between work. If you have five minutes to spare, try to do some push-ups or sit-ups.
The amount of exercise you need to lose weight depends on the intensity and duration. Generally speaking, most health experts recommend that adults perform some form of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise for at least 150 minutes (2.5 hours) per week.
You can start with a few minutes a day and add more time to your workouts as your fitness increases.
Your daily checklist
You can now confidently start your weight loss journey. To kick off, implement these easy habits and stick to them.
Try to answer “yes” to these questions every day:
- Did I eat a balanced breakfast?
- Did I eat foods with potassium, magnesium, and calcium?
- Are my blood sugar levels stable?
- Did I keep track of what I ate today?
- Did I exercise? Did I enjoy it?
If this list intimidates you, you can always start by implementing one or two habits at a time. And if you fail to execute your daily habit? Just start afresh the next day! Don’t be hard on yourself.
Try not to skip two days in a row and keep going!
Implementing and keeping to these easy habits is a great starting point to kick off your weight loss journey. Rather than trying fad diets, stick to manageable healthy habits. To make losing weight easier, try Manna Low-GI Shake and Manna Blood Sugar Support. These products can give your weight loss efforts the boost you need.
“I started using the shake about eight months ago and never looked back. I have one first thing in the morning which settles my blood sugar till breakfast time and one at lunch time, without a hint of a craving for sweets. I’m not diabetic but this shake has completely changed my way of eating. As a bonus, I lost excess weight without even trying. I used an expensive imported product for many years until I couldn’t afford it anymore, and switched to Manna Shake. I’m not looking back.”

“Really awesome product. Yes, doesn’t taste like triple chocolate cake covered in syrup and stuffed into a Bar-One. It’s a health shake to help you suppress your hunger and lose weight.
It tastes perfectly fine with water, better than you would expect, being free from most ‘yummy’ tasting additives like soy and whey.
Overall, it’s a great product that does the job. Also, because its light weight (liquid) the scale is seeing results!”
