10 Easy Tips For Weight Loss
Weight loss the mantra which is spelled by people of all ages all the day. Weight loss includes cutting down on calories and fat stored in our body. There are many diet plans available in the market. But, if you really want to follow one, then instead of a diet plan it would be better to keep track of your food intake. There are no such diet tips or plans that will cut down your weight and calories instantly. Whether the work is small or big, hard work is the only tonic to deal with it. If you want to make any such move towards weight loss, then follow the tips that we are mentioning in our article and see. Remember that the tips we are providing are not just limited to one or two days. If you want to maintain what you have lost, you have to follow these tips as daily tips throughout your life.
Let’s get into our diet tips:
1. Pen down your intake for one week:
Recent studies found that people who keep track of their food intake in a diary will reduce their intake by 15 percent than who don’t. Keep an eye on your weekends. A University of North Carolina study found that people tend to take extra 115 calories per weekend in the form of alcohol and fat. Make sure you cut down calories from dressings, sauces, condiments, drinks and snacks. They will play a great role in our food chart.
2. Get an online weight loss support:
A University of Vermont study found that online weight-loss programs will help you keep track of your weight. The researchers did research on volunteers for about 18 months. Those who followed and attended the online weight loss programs lost more weight than those who met face-to-face.
3. Maintain a positive attitude:
It is not that easy to control yourself when it comes to eating junk foods and not that easy to force your body for a daily walk in the morning. Set your mind in such a way that whatever you decide on doing no matter what happens you have to complete it. Keep on saying it to yourself that “Yes, I can do it”, “I can lose weight”, “I will go for a morning walk today”. If you repeat them continuously your brain and body will never resist you from doing it.
4. Only water after breakfast:
After your breakfast don’t look up for soft, sugary drinks. At breakfast, go ahead and have one full glass of orange juice. And make sure you don’t look at that until the next breakfast. In a recent research it is found that the average American consumes an extra 245 calories a day from soft drinks. It will collect about 25 pounds. Research shows that despite the calories, sugary drinks won’t come up with any stomach filling ways like food does.
5. Reduce your TV time:
A recent study on 76 undergraduate students found the more they watched television, the more often they ate and the more they ate overall. Cut one program which is li’l boring and go for a walk instead.
6. Washing day:
Turn one day in all days as washing day. Devote yourself for washing clothes, cleaning floor, a couple of windows, the shower stall, bathroom tile, or your car etc. The study shows that a 150 pound person will burn about four calories for every minute spent cleaning. Scrubing for 30 minutes will cut down about 120 calories.
7. Wait until your stomach starves for food:
People eat food quite often out of boredom, nervousness, habit or frustration. First, you have to know the difference between physical hunger and craving. Craving is eating specific food of your taste and hunger is eating anything you could get your hands on.
8. Sniff a banana, an apple when you feel hungry:
You may think that I’m joking. But it is true. A study says that the more frequently people sniffed, the less hungry, they were and the more weight they lost. They lost about 30 pounds each. The logic about sniffing is that sniffing the food tricks the brain into thinking you’re actually eating it.
9. Stare at color blue:
Blue color functions as an appetite suppressant. So serve your food in blue colored plates, dress in blue while you eat, and make sure you use a blue colored table cloth. At the same time avoid using red, yellow, and orange in your dining areas. Studies found that they encourage eating.
10. Minutes walk on stairs:
The Centers for Disease Control says that a 10 minutes walking on up and down stairs will reduce 10 pounds of weight in a year.
