Women aren’t the only ones who struggle with weight loss. More men than you think struggle too, and your man could be one of them. If you’re on a weight loss journey, it could be the perfect time to get your man to a size that he likes and is healthy for his body. Here are some tips to help you do just that.
Do It Together
It’s so much easier when you’re losing weight together. You will both have the support that you need, and someone who understands the situation when you’re tired or fed up. The support at home for sticking to the healthy eating plan or diet is also important. You will both eat the same meals and buy the right type of food from the supermarket.
Do the Same Exercises
Exercising together gives you both the motivation and support to keep going. You will also have the company to keep going when it comes to long runs or sessions in the gym. Sometimes this company is all you need to keep going because you don’t get bored.
Do the Cooking Together
Both of you need to eat the same meals. While he will need more than you—guys need to eat more—he will need to eat the same type of food. Of course, dietary requirements will play a part in this.
You will soon find that when you’re cooking together, the extra food is less tempting and it encourages both of you to stick to the plan instead of sneaking the odd treat.
Get Rid of the Junk Food
Even if you’re not losing weight, you can help your man lose the pounds. Get rid of the food that is most tempting. Don’t have the chocolate, the junk food and all the rest of the stuff in the house.
Keep the cupboards stocked with the healthier options. If the temptation is out of the way, he is less likely to go out in search for the bad food.
Help Him With Inspiration
You need to find ways to help him be inspired, whether it is looking back at old photos or looking at magazines that encourage healthy eating and good figures.
Trial and Error With the Diets
Be prepared to go through some trial and error with the diets. Sometimes, you need to try a few before you find one that will work perfectly for him.
Everyone is different, including metabolism and reactions to certain foods. Just because a diet worked for you doesn’t mean it is going to be just right for him. Encourage him to do through the process, and then celebrate when you find the right one.
