The best option is to cook a healthy meal of steamed veggies and a lean protein—neither of which should be loaded with salt. The more sodium you have in your dinner, the more it sits in your body overnight causing you to wake up feeling less bloated.
There was a survery done in 2013 from the National Sleep Foundation found that active people are 56 to 67 percent more likely to say they usually get a good night's sleep—no matter what time of day they exercise. Take a walk, run up and down the stairs, do a quick workout DVD or some squats, ETC.
Eating out will ALWAYS make it harder to count calories and watch what you are eating. There is so much more temptation and you are not in control over exactly the portion, the seasonings, ETC regardless of how you ask it to be prepared. The average restaurant meal contains 2 times the amount of cals that you should be consuming in 1 sitting. When losing weight, lunch should always be your smallest meal. Also, who really has time to make a lunch in the morning?
Water flushes out your system and the more you drink helps you get rid of any water you're retaining. Crazy right? you need atleast 8 glasses a day to function normally. I drink 1.5-2 gallons a day. also remember....when you work out you need to add 12oz for every 30 min you exercise.
