Whatever your motivation to lose weight instantly, your determination will get you through it. The good thing about these tips is that you don’t have starved yourself or eating less. As a matter of fact, these tips are simple and easy to apply in your daily lives. It is all about making the right choice and stick to it for the rest of your lives and everything will seem effortless and it will become part of your lifestyle.
Eat moderate amount of meals three times a day and light snacks in between. I told you these tips do not include starvation. Any diet programs that prevent you from eating right are not right! Many people are mistaken with weight loss and suppressing hunger, as a matter of fact it is the total opposite. Weight loss management is a matter of eating strategically and wisely. Skipping breakfast is never a good idea, although many people are doing this mistake. If you feel hungry in between breakfast and lunch, eat some light, healthy snack such as yogurt or salad, it will give fill your stomach and give you energy throughout the day.
Drink water for life. Indeed this is true; water is very beneficial to our lives. Our body is made of 60% water that is why it is vital to keep our body hydrated and have sufficient amount of water. On the second note, water can help fight unnecessary cravings. Water has proven to be effective to sooth hunger temporarily and to keep away from craving. So, keep a bottle of water with you every day wherever you go, it can be very helpful in times of need.
Engage in fun activities. Involving yourself in activities just for the sake of getting is not enough. You must enjoy doing it as well. When you are doing something you love, it will not only make you healthy but also make you happy. Group activities such as soccer, swimming with friends, tennis, dancing etc. are great outlet to lose pounds at the same time releasing the “feel good” hormones in the body. If you enjoy doing things alone to relieve stress and lose some pounds, try running, walking, yoga or working out in the gym.
Build muscles. Losing weight is a futile effort if you don’t build some muscles. Building muscle is one way to increase your metabolism in order to burn more calories. Changing your body structure from fat to muscle will take process and it will not happen in one night. However, if you have a scale that able to measure body fat percentage you can see the changes in your body and it can encourage you to keep going.
Include healthy foods in your daily meals. One of the common mistake people make is that they did not include healthy foods in the daily meals. Some just eat healthy foods once or twice a week. It is important to totally change your meals if you want to have an instant change in your diet. Eating healthy meals such as veggies, fruits, and other foods that are filled with vitamins and nutrients, in just few weeks are enough to make huge changes in your body weight. Keep in mind not to stuff up your stomach. As long as you have filled your stomach with sufficient amount of food and you are good. Eat slowly and do not rush. Take time to really munch the food to help your body in digestion process.
Get enough rest. I am not only referring to night’s sleeping but as a whole. Getting enough sleep at night is as important as power nap in the afternoon. Our brain is not a machine that works 24 hour per day. It needs to be well taken care of and that includes getting enough sleep in order for it to rest. Getting enough rest is associated with weight gain and loss because when the brain is stress it craves a lot of unhealthy food to compensate its energy. Having enough sleep can promote peaceful mind and healthy body. Therefore, never underestimate power nap in the afternoon and sleep at night.
Record your progress. When we are talking about weight loss in few weeks, it is important to record your progress such as your weight, the food or calories intake, activities, your health condition and others. Some people call this a food diary and they find it very convenient and helpful. Keeping a food diary helps you understand your mistake and where you should change or continue. Some people even kept a food diary for the long term to make them aware of what they eat and how much progress they have made.
