I wish that I knew about these weight loss tips when I began my weight loss program.
Obesity is a reality which can lead to so many health-related problems such as High Blood Pressure, high cholesterol level, heart problems, just to name a few. Therefore, Obesity shouldn’t be an option and Weight loss should be the ultimate goal.
Luckily, I have made extensive research and included some of my own personal routines to ensure that both men and women lose weight fast with these 10 fast weight loss tips.
Without further ado, let’s jump right into these tips.
1) Use a small plate to eat.
Counting calories for every meal consumed could be daunting. So, I use this bowl to the left to minimize the quantity of food I eat.
I refer to this bowl as “my special bowl” because it has tremendously assisted me to keep the extra pounds off my waistline.
I have also spoken about this bowl in another post under the subheading “Keep your weight on a healthy scale.”
2) Drink water before a meal.
I realized that drinking water before every meal reduces the quantity of food I consume.
So, every morning when I wake up and after I have prayed, I drink a bottle of water.
Yeah yeah yeah, the ideal is a bottle of water, but to be honest, I drink 3/4 of the bottle of water. It’s a bit difficult, but I try to.
Drinking water in the morning jump starts my metabolism for the rest of the day, but drinking water before every meal reduces the quantity of food consumed. How brilliant could that be?
3) Eat only when hungry.
It is imperative to eat only when hungry because the body is signifying that it needs to replenish its energy.
But eating when you’re not hungry, only adds additional inches to your waistline.
It’s like a license to eat all the food you want provided that you STOP EATING WHEN SATISFIED.
But how do you determine when you’re satisfied? That will be explained in the next tip.
4) Stop eating when satisfied.
Normally, your brain will tell you when to stop eating. But it could be difficult to determine when you’re satisfied in cases when an individual is stress eating (eating due to stress).
Therefore, my #1 RULE OF THUMB is to HOLD MY STOMACH IN.
What do I mean by this? When I’m eating, I hold in my stomach and if I feel some discomfort, that means I’m satisfied. But when I don’t feel any discomfort, I am still hungry. FUNNY RIGHT? BUT IT WORKS.
5) Drink natural fat burning tea after a meal.
I’ve been using the Hyleys Tea Slim Tea, Acai Berry for close to 3 years now and it not only improves my metabolism but also helps to maintain my desired weight.
It works as a gentle laxative, helping to cleanse the bowels thus preventing fat consumed from being absorbed into the body. There are 2 flavors; Acai Berry and Goji Berry.
6) Always consume healthy food.
Your meals should be colorful; green, red, white yellow, orange, etc.
Colorful food not only looks appetizing but is also nutritious.
There is this saying of mine “RAINBOW FOOD EQUALS HEALTH” which encourages me to eat a variety of fruits and vegetables even when I don’t feel like eating them.
So when I’m about to eat, my plate should look like a rainbow/ colorful, if not, then my meal isn’t healthy enough.
7) Rest When Needed.
Some of you might be asking yourselves what rest has got to do with weight loss.
And what I say to that is EVERYTHING.
Your brain needs rest and rest is like food for the brain. Lack of rest triggers the release of a stress hormone called Cortisol which tells your body to preserve more energy (fat) to keep you awake.
In addition, lack of sleep distorts the hormone Insulin responsible for blood sugar regulation.
Insulin malfunction causes the body to poorly process fat, leading to fat storage increase in the body.
8) Take natural weight loss supplements if necessary
That’s the question you need to ask yourself before considering to start taking weight loss supplements.
I have explained everything you’ll need to know about weight loss supplements in another post including 11 best natural weight loss supplements available on the market today.
I understand that most of us have busy schedules making it difficult to squeeze in exercise.
Myself included, I work from home and there is no time to exercise.
Guess what? THERE’S A SOLUTION FOR US.
You don’t need to subscribe to any gym memberships, YOU CAN DO IT RIGHT FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR HOMES.
I use the 7M WORKOUT APP available on the App Store and Google Play.
The 7 Minute Workout is ideal for everyone who has busy schedules.
This app keeps a history of your weight loss so you can see your progress.
It also tracks your number of workouts and calorie burned.
10) Weight loss programs
This should be the last resort to combat weight loss because some programs could be a bit costly.
However, the weight loss program I used and the one I would recommend to anyone any day is The 1 Week Diet.
I can testify to you that THIS PROGRAM WORKS because I am living proof.
Not only did I lose 10 pounds in as little as 1 week, but it only costs $37 to begin the plan.
What amazes me most is the fact that you can get A FREE E-BOOK even if you decide not to purchase the plan.
Either way, it’s still A WIN- WIN SITUATION.
However, if you purchase the diet plan, 4 manuals (launch, fat burning, progress, and weight-loss motivator) will be provided to you.
In a nutshell, weight loss shouldn’t be something one needs to think twice about doing.
Weight loss is necessary to prevent obesity-related diseases such as High Blood Pressure and heart problems.
Make use of these tips and I guarantee that you will shed some extra pounds off in the coming weeks.
