FallA change of seasons is also a great time to set new goals. So if your goal is to lose weight and be healthier, put these easy ways to lose weight this fall on your to-do list today.

Stay Away From Halloween Candy

All those “snack sized” goodies may look harmless, but the truth is they can easily tack a few hundred extra calories onto your daily total. So while you may be thinking it’s “just a taste,” all those bites here and there can total up to a pound or more of weight gain a week! Better to take a pass on the candy and watch the scale head in the other direction, instead.

Burn Calories Getting Things Done

Rather than dreading all those fall tasks that need doing, like putting away the patio set or raking up fallen leaves, see them as a chance to get active and get something done at the same time. De-clutter your closets, clean up the flower or vegetable garden, put away your summer clothes and get out your sweaters, or even redecorate for the season – all the while burning calories and fat!

Enjoy All the Fresh Seasonal Foods

Harvest time is a perfect time to add more fresh, seasonal foods to your menu and great, healthy choices abound. Visit a produce stand or farmer’s market and stock up on crisp apples and pears, savory pumpkin, fresh cranberries, filling sweet potatoes, and all the other fabulous fall foods. Spaghetti squash makes a great substitute for pasta, for example. Dig in!

Don’t Wait Until New Year’s

One of the best easy ways to lose weight this fall is to make today the day you get started! Many people make the mistake of “waiting” for the holidays to be over, only to find themselves ringing in the New Year several pounds heavier as a result. Wouldn’t you rather start next year well on your way toward your weight loss goal, instead?

There you have it: Four easy ways to lose weight this fall. Put them into practice today and you can start seeing results as soon as next week!
