Eat foods which are filling
Dieting has never been a recommended way of losing weight. Rather than starving yourself, the focus should be on eating the right foods. The best way to avoid snacking on foods which add to the weight is to stop feeling hungry all the time and to stop feeling too hungry at mealtimes.
The best way for this is to eat foods which are rich in fibre and protein and will keep the stomach full for a long time. This will automatically mean that you don’t grab on those fries and sodas for quick bites and also do not over eat during mealtimes. Some such foods you can try out are: Oats,Nuts,Eggs,Sausages,Greek yogurt,Berries,Beans…
Water is the only element that we take in which contains zero calories. It is very important for hydrating the body and keeping it healthy. Many people feel that to lose ‘water weight’ drinking less water will be helpful. The fact is that it is actually the opposite.
The more water you drink, the more likely you will be to lose the water weight. Drinking water just before mealtimes is also recommended as it will fill up the stomach and reduce appetite so that you end up taking in lesser calories during meals.
Walk as much as possible
Walking is the simplest physical exercise which one can perform. Lack of space to walk or not having the time to go walking are no longer acceptable excuses for avoiding this basic exercise. Just by walking for 10-15 minutes will be very helpful for losing weight. Here are some easy weight loss tips with respect to walking:
- If you take the bus/ train to work, get off one stop earlier and walk the rest of the way.
