TOP 5 TIPS TO NATURAL WEIGHT-LOSS
Exercise and eating less are the common ways to lose weight, but hey! not everybody are successful by just doing those. So what can be done further to help us lose more weight, to speed up metabolism and achieve our goals?
With this question in my mind, I was encouraged to write up an article concerning this matter to help you guys out. The following are my top 5 Diet Tips to make you more determined and help you lose more weight.
Tip#1: Drink plenty of Water
Sometimes, we tend to get confused between being hungry and thirsty. Therefore, it is necessary for us to assess if we are really hungry or not. As a result, you’ll just add extra calories in your diet when a glass of water is all you really need.
Tip#2: Be choosy on the foods you eat.
You don’t need to take away the foods that you want, because all you really need is to be conscious in what you eat. Checking on to the nutritional facts should help in decreasing your calorie intake. With these you won’t be needing and should be thinking about diet pills. When you know what you should eat, you’ll do great.
Tip#3: Enjoy your favorite foods
As a normal human being, we have our own tongue for foods, we have our own preferences and therefore, we have our own favorite foods. Losing weight should not be a hindrance in enjoying these stuffs, because if you take away those foods in your diet, it will result in “rebound” overeating and you’ll definitely gain weight. Set a day for this, (e.g sunday) and eat in moderation, others call this as “cheat days”. Wherein you actually eat the foods you’re craving for. In this way, you still get to experience the foods that you love and you’ll avoid cravings too. BUT!! NEVER FORGET TO EAT IN MODERATION! MODERATION, MODERATION, I repeat MODERATION. It’s the key pointer at achieving a good diet plan.
REMEMBER: A healthy diet is when you can still experience what you love to eat while still getting in shape.
Tip#4: Know what to eat
Eating less but not knowing what are the contents of what you eat will not help you at all. Nowadays, foods are offered in low calorie, or even fat-free. But we do not notice the amount of sugar present in the food. The food may be fat-free but the sugar content is compensated. As a result, these sugars will eventually turn into fats. Moreover, Studies show that eating 4-5meals in a day will help in control weight and appetite. The last meal should be dinner and the amounts you eat should be enough to make you satisfied but not full. As a rule of thumb, eating a like king in the morning and eating like a pauper in the evening. If you still have questions about healthy diet. Please check on my I’m a Vegan page.
Tip#5: Exercise and be active!
Many of us feel that exercise and going to the gym is a punishment. In result, people tend to be negative, afraid and lazy to exercise in the gym or at home. Instead of thinking negatively, be physically active, try to think positive, be optimistic and focus. Motivate yourself by reading magazines and watching videos in youtube that may inspire you to do more. I promise you, in the end, you’ll feel great and satisfied.
