Are you one of those who dream for a perfect shape and weight? Here are some easy tricks to lose weight faster. You don’t have to do an intense workout or to follow a strict diet. Just follow these tips to reduce your calories.
If you cut your meal into half, your plate looks empty and you may not be satisfied with your meals. Instead of subtracting your food add them. Add healthy foods like fruits and vegetables that you love which has low-calories and helps to increase the volume of your meal.
Have fruits as a whole instead of fruit juices so that you can get the fiber in then and also have a feeling of fullness. Take soup or broth before meals as they contain low calories and also reduce your appetite. Make the snacking portion healthy by having smoothies or vegetables like carrots or a handful of nuts. But cut of white foods like starches (rice, potatoes), sugar, rice flour and proteins into the half.
HYDRATION IS EVERYTHING:
Carry a bottle of water with you so that you may drink it whenever you have a feel of snacking. Sometimes, it is the thirst which is felt as hunger, so always stay hydrated. Drink 6 to 8 ounce of water before meals so as to decrease your appetite.
The best way to lose weight is exercising. However, if you don’t have time to do exercise or intense workout daily, always be active and use stairs instead of elevators or escalators. Take a small walk in between every two hours. Spend less time watching television or using social media and utilize that time to wash or clean something like cleaning your car or house.
TRY THESE WHEN YOU EAT:
Avoid eating in groups or while watching television or in restaurants. All these make you eat more. Eat alone or in front of the mirror and eat mostly at home. Eat-in blue plates that will reduce your intake and avoid colors like yellow, orange and red. Eat slowly so that your brain can receive the signals which will decrease your intake.
Reduce the size of your plates and glasses and fill it full instead of reducing the quantity of food on a large plate. This will work psychologically since you feel you are eating a full plate of meals. Also, try to brush your teeth after every meal especially after dinner that helps to signal your brain that the mealtime is over.
Wear a belt around your waist. So when you eat more the pressure in the mid-section, it makes you uncomfortable and eats less.
Note down whatever you eat in a weak. Studies show that one tends to take more calories at weekends. By noting what you eat, you can cut down the calories from your diet.
Eat only when you are really hungry. Avoid eating due to boredom, frustration or habits.
Instead of focusing on things you can’t do like restricting junk foods or doing workouts, make positive thoughts like, “I will lose weight; I will get out for a walk today”.
