10 Tips for Fast Weight Loss

Weight Loss
  • Do not skip breakfast! This will help you curb your snack attacks a lot better and help stop unhealthy cravings. Eating breakfast helps stabilize your hormones and keeps potential overeating at bay.
  • Slow down you eating! Because slow eating and chewing food properly gives ample time to the body for appetite-related hormones to activate, slow eaters munch through nearly 70% less calories per meal. Evidence shows that this way you'll end up eating less.
  • Eat more ‘small’ meals! It is fine to have several snacks or small meals during the day, if you are eating healthy. Keeping hunger at bay prevents mindless cravings to binge on food at the very sight of it.
  • Out of sight is out of mind! Keep snacks out of sight! Stock up on healthy snacks like fruits, salads, oats and corn flakes instead!
  • Cut the salt!  Do you know that sodium holds up to 50 times its weight in water!! Eating more than 1 tablespoon of salt daily will cause you to retain water and gain weight. The urge to drink water is an indicator of the fact that sodium intake in your diet is too high. Consuming salty snacks like potato chips, salted peanuts, etc can add more of salt into your body system.
  • Avoid eating straight from a multi-serve packet! The basic or natural tendency to keep reaching for the food is given a huge blow if you serve yourself from a small bowl or cup. Pour out the amount you intend to eat, and give it a stop when it's over.
  • Walk after every 4 hours! Sitting down or being virtually inactive for longer than 4 hours slows down your metabolism making it easier for you to store fat so to prevent this from happening try standing up for at least 10 minutes within every 4 hours.
  • Time for some workout! Weight loss would be more effective with a good exercise routine & mixing with cardio would be the best way! Any workout that stresses on muscle tone and enhanced heart rate is helpful in losing weight and keeping it off.  This would make your body burn more fat to help you slim down.
  • Combat stress & anxietyStress and anxiety always harms our body and mind and leads to weight gain in the long run. Nurture your hobbies and spend quality time with your loved ones and friends. Try practicing yoga and deep breathing exercises to combat stress.
  • Drink plenty of water! Water is one of the best tools for weight loss, first of all because it often replaces high-calorie drinks like soda and juice and alcohol with a drink that doesn't have any calories. Water is great appetite suppressant, and often when we think we're hungry, we're actually just thirsty. Water has no fat, no calories, no carbs, no sugar. Drink plenty to help your weight-loss regimen.
