Easy Tricks to Lose Weight!


The healthiest way to lose weight is neither crash diets nor bursts of exercise. The body likes slow changes in terms of food and exercise. So, if you need to lose weight, what should you do? To lose weight, you need to get your body to use up the stored fats and the most effective way is to reduce the amount of calories you eat and increase the levels of daily activities. Find here some of the easy tricks to keep a check on your weight!
  • Eat at the same times every day. Try adding foods to your diet instead of subtracting them. Add in healthy foods you really love, like deep-red cherries, juicy grapes, etc. Slip those favorite fruits into your bag lunch and breakfast cereal; add the veggies into soups, stews, and sauces. It isn't at all difficult.. is it?
  • Instead of making high calorie meals for the family and low calorie for yourself, make only one meal. Weight loss is easier when everyone's eating the same thing and you're not tempted to taste calorie rich food in the other plate.
  • Drinking a glass of water before a meal helps watch what you eat! You won’t just hog everything, since you wouldn't feel ‘so hungry’. Water is a no calorie drink that keeps a check on the body weight. Also, keeping your body refreshed with plenty of water may also help your workout as it keeps body well hydrated!
  • One of the easiest ways to cut down on fat intake is to switch to lower calorie foods. While trimming fat calories, one should keep an eye on boosting fiber as it helps you feel satisfied longer.
  • Serve your meals on a small plate! While a small portion served on a large plate can leave you craving more, a smaller plate full of food just feels more satisfying than a large plate with that same amount of food on it. Not only does the pleasure last longer, but your body has time to register the food you've eaten.
  • Take the stairs every chance you get. Crank the music the next time you mop or vacuum. It all adds up. If you walk twice a day for 10 minutes and try a few of these tips, you may find yourself with a low-impact, 30-minute workout easily tucked under your belt. Other simple ways invigorate muscles can be riding bikes, swimming, hiking, washing the car, cleaning rooms, playing Frisbee or chasing the dog around the yard.
  • Try dancing to the music or enjoy watching your favorite TV show while pedaling your stationery bike or walking the treadmill. Aim for at least 15 minutes and if you get really engrossed, you just might outlast the last survivor.
