Weight Loss is a big concern to most of us. I during my college days was one of the chubby girl in my class. I felt very bad when someone teased me for being fat. That inferiority complex inspired me to lose nearly 10 Kg in duration of 3 Months. After 3 Months, I was back to college in the best of my shape. I still remember those compliments. Hard work pays you well.
I hear people saying exercise and eat for long and healthy life but hardly some of them care for their well being. Survival in this world full of hardships can be termed as a mind game at every step. You need a healthy mind to prove yourself in this lovely journey of life. I believe “Sound mind always resides in a Sound body”. A fit man standing on the street is always attractive to everyone’s eye. This is the reason many of us desire for that hot tempting body with no extra chunks of fat. Losing those extra chunks was never a rocket science.You can lose those extra pounds by including some healthy habits in your routine.
1. Drink More Water
Water is a blessing in disguise. It is the best ailment for your body. Drinking water before every meal can kill your hunger, to an extent, and makes you eat less. Like me, if you find it boring you can experiment by adding fresh fruits in water (watermelon, lemon, orange, etc.) and freezing it. This will add a mild flavour to water. Make a habit of drinking 2 glasses of water before every meal. This will make you lose extra pounds in your fitness regime.
2.Make Fruits Your Best Friends
If you are that food junkie, journey of weight loss will be hard to you. If you suffer from those overpowering cravings , fruits will be your saviour .They will add glow to your face and help you remain fuller for long. Fruits contain fiber which can help you control weight over long term. Also, they regulate your appetite towards a more positive direction. When you regularly eat fruits, your cravings for junk food automatically lessens!
Instead of using elevators and escalators, try using stairs. If you have a desk job, make a habit to get up after every two hours and have a walk for at least 5 to 10 minutes.
4.Say No To Frying
Avoid having fried foods. Fried food makes you lazy and you digest more fat instead of other nutritions. Thus, instead of frying, try experimenting with your food in a healthy way. You can always bake your dish, boil the ingredients, etc. Try eliminating fried foods from your diet and you will be happy to get faster results.
5.Drink Black Coffee/ Green Tea
Replace your habit of Tea and Coffee with Green tea and Black coffee. They boost your metabolism which promotes weight loss.Black coffee has caffeine, hence, be very cautious and only consume the desired quantity of it.When it comes to green tea , it is best option to be adopted as weight loss habit. Drink it 2 times a day and it will show great results!
6.Exercise And Lift Weight
Both having some calories and losing some is really significant. To lose extra weight it is very necessary to exercise for at least 45 minutes a day. You can walk, cycle, jog or join a gym near your place. House wives can plan to clean their house on their own. Make strength training a part of your exercise routine. Lift some weight to prevent muscle loss and metabolic slowdown. Some studies show that lifting weight helps to keep your metabolism high. Best Fashion statement is fit , healthy body.
7. Cook in Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is very healthy. It boosts metabolism by 120 calories per day. Add a flavour of coconut oil to your every food to get healthy benefits. It also reduces your appetite promoting healthy weight loss.
Eat Enough to stay healthy. Many people misjudge dieting with eating less. WRONG! Instead dieting is all about eating healthy and enough. Many celebrities to remain in shape eat around 6 times a day! Never have less than 1200 calories a day else you will slow down your metabolism which will cause health issues in future. Hence, eating enough is an important component of weight loss. Starving yourself will never do any good.
9. Cut Soda Drinks
Avoid sugary drinks, as they act on liver to produce belly fat. Replace soda with healthy drinks such as lemon water, fresh juice, green tea, black coffe, etc. .
10.Eat More Of Whole Grains
Whole grains such as Oats, Whole bread and brown rice helps you burn extra calories. Your body burns all those extra calories in order to break them.
