The greatest weight-loss strategies are the ones you can cherry-pick to fit your body and life. So go ahead and take your pick!
1.Reduce the calories
One gram of fat contains twice the calories of a gram of protein or carbohydrate. Avoid fatty foods, subtract the fats from your meat too. Include a lot of vegetables (full of fiber) and fruits in your diet. For fast weight loss, replace the oily paratha breakfast with a bowl of whole grain cereal or some lean protein and vegetables.
2.Drink More Water
Doctors recommend that one must drink at least 6 to 8 glasses of water in a day. Drinking more water helps the stomach feel fuller and reduces cravings considerably. Take one glass of water before every meal, it is a good way to keep you from overeating. Substitute all your sodas, fruit juice, teas, coffee, and beer for a glass of water and you could lose weight fast.
3.Stock your kitchen
Keep your house well-stocked with fruits, vegetables, healthy meats, grains, cereals, spices and flavour. Follow our tricks to healthy cooking, cooking vegetables for the week, and low-fat cooking posts to understand how best you can stock your kitchen with healthy and delicious ingredients. These will help you avoid binging and aid in fast weight loss.People whose diets are dominant in fruits and veggies tend to lose weight faster and maintain their weights much longer.
4.Cut the Salt
Eating more than the recommended 2500mg (1 tablespoon) of sodium each day will cause you to retain water and weight gain. Sodium holds up to 50 times its weight in water. When you limit the amount of sodium you eat your body will begin to expel some that unwanted water weight.The urge to drink water is a good indicator that your sodium intake is too high. As your sodium levels get high your body asks for more water to dilute the sodium by making you thirsty.A lot of bars offer salty snacks such as peanuts and chips for free, after customers get thirsty they will order drinks to quench their thirst. So watch out for salty snacks!!
5.Opt For a Hobby
It isn’t sufficient to rely on just 30 to 60 minutes of physical activity per day. Moving from bed to office chair, and back to bed, isn’t a healthy way to live. Buy a motion sensor gaming console that lets you enjoy social games with friends and family, plan weekend trips, clean your house once a week, dance, play sports, the list is endless. Get out of the coffee shop and dining table rut and you’ll have fun along with the healthy weight loss.
6.Walk After Every 4 Hours
According to researchers at Missouri University, as quoted by nowloss.com, “sitting down or being virtually inactive for longer than 4 hours slows down your metabolism making it easier for you to store fat so to prevent this from happening try standing up for at least 10 minutes within every 4 hours.”
Even Diet sodas! Since regular soda is basically a weight gainer drink and since water is a 0 calorie weight loss drink – You would lose 1 pound every week if you replaced 2 bottles of soda with 2 bottles of water so go here to see how to stop drinking soda.
