11 ways to lose weight for lazy people
Most of the women I know think that they are fat and are not satisfied with their weight – myself included – and if you too go through the same dilemma, then you should definitely continue reading this.
I can understand how it is hard to lose weight, especially with all the yummy food options lurking everywhere. Also, to be honest, I am a huge lazy bum. I can sit on one spot all day and not move an inch. Raise your hands if you agree with me!
Now, getting to the point here, losing weight is not that difficult – AT ALL. Yes! The simplest and easiest trick I can give you is just to make a few changes to your lifestyle. Removing a few things and adding some other components can change your life completely and make you feel good about yourself.
Here’s a quick guide for all the lazy bums (like me) out there, who want to lose weight without going through the whole diet-exercise hassle:
START DRINKING WATER
And by drinking, I mean 10-12 glasses of water per day. I cannot tell you how important this is, since water is going to flush out toxins from your body. Extra bonus? Your skin is going to look and feel awesome. You can add different fruits in your water to change flavors.
GOODBYE FRENCH FRIES
I think we all can agree to “fries before guys”, but the truth is you have to say farewell to fried and oily stuff in order to lose weight. Also, it is not really a healthy option and very bad for your skin (read: acne).
BEAT YOUR CRAVINGS WITH HEALTHIER OPTIONS
Feeling hungry in the middle of the night? Eat carrots, almonds or walnuts. Not only will it satisfy your cravings but you will get benefits from them as well.
START OFF YOUR MORNINGS WITH LEMON WATER
I cannot stress enough on this tip. Just after waking up, have one glass of warm water with lemon and/or honey. Seriously, this is going to make your body feel much better. It boosts your immune system, flushes out toxins and keeps your digestive system up and running.
HAVE A CHEAT-DAY
We all get tired of healthy eating once in a while, right? Keep one day in a week as your cheat day. Eat one or two cheat meal. You have to lose weight, but at a normal pace and cheating once in a while is going to help you from getting bored.
In one jug of water, add some cucumber and lemon slices and some mint leaves. Let it sit overnight and drink this water the next day. This is just going to boost the weight loss. Can’t do it? Just add lemon in your glass, whenever you drink water.
SAY YES TO FRUITS AND VEGGIES
Yes, yes and yes! Add more of these healthier alternatives. Eat them raw.
ADD A LITTLE BIT OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
Exercise or physical activity is very important to burn away the fat. Since we are talking about beginner level here, let’s just focus on MOVING. Have stairs at home? Just go up and down 2-3 times. Love dancing? Make sure you dance on at least two or three songs daily! This is equal to doing a cardio workout; definitely works wonders for lazy people!
SLEEP EARLY, WAKE-UP EARLY
It is important to keep your routine healthy and well, so do not forget that.
MAKE SMALL CHANGES
Keep in mind that you are at level one. So make small changes. Swap your biscuits with almonds. Drink milk rather than sodas. It is that simple.
START WITH ACHIEVABLE GOALS AND DO NOT PUSH YOURSELF HARD
When it starts to get hard, we often lose motivation and end up gaining weight again. All you have to do is stop a few things and add some. It is very basic and simple and all you need is a little bit of will power.
Getting in shape is just a reward. Start with small goals like losing four to five kilograms, and then build up from there.
