Tired of those usual fad diets? We spend most of our day researching to get the latest information about super-fit celebrities’ workout routines. At the end of the day, however, shedding pounds is pretty much as difficult for us as it is for any other person. These 10 tips and tricks might not be easy to stick to, but they worked for me. Go for these true and tried tips for a faster weight loss.
1. Control Portions
Portion control is essential when you eat food. If you are dining out, order two appetizers instead of a main course, and avoid the bread piece if you choose pasta. It is always better to eat smaller portions. Order healthy and eat light.
2. Keep Food On-the-go
Keep a snack that is healthy, such as a fruit or maybe some carrots or cucumbers that you can munch on through the day. This will not only end your hunger pangs, but also keep you away from those mindless cravings.
3. Shake Your Chocolate Craving Away
It’s okay to be a fan of chocolate as long as you are using it as a flavor only. Keep a shaker cup on the go with some chocolate protein powder, if you really feel the need to have something sweet.
4. Keep Food in Non-heat Containers
If there is a need to store leftovers, keep it in non-heat containers, high chances are you won’t go for it. Non-heating food storage containers could harm your health when heated. This way, you'll have to serve food in a glass plate, hence, cutting down on portion.
5. Start Moving
Regardless of the fact, that you're not committing a whole lump of time to a workout, you can burn a couple of extra calories if you move more during the day. Take breaks to stroll around the workplace, choose stairs rather than the elevator or park your car a little far from the office door. These are all simple yet effective approaches to up your calorie burn.
6. An Early Last Meal of the Day
Try to keep your last meal of about 25 percent of your every day calories, and have it no less than a few hours before going to bed. Eating food late at night can be difficult to digest and will not let you sleep.
7. Brush and Floss Your Teeth
This is like putting a seal to the day. Most people just can't avoid the mid-night craving and tend to eat even after dinner and right the good night's Zzz's. Therefore, brushing and flossing after dinner will make you less likely to eat again before you go to bed.
8. Weight Loss Motivation Note
Having as a reminder, to what you were like, is a good strategy to set you back on the track. Even an inspirational note works to help you reach your weight loss goals. This will not only get you enthusiastic about your goal, but will also show your achievement at the end of the day.
9. Stress Less
The more you stress, the more you intend to do things that can put on weight. For many, eating or sleeping more than recommended, when they are stressed, give a chance to put on weight. Try meditating during the day, get a massage or even a relaxation technique works to shrug off the stress.
10. Get Your Zzz's
Not having enough hours of sleep can provoke you to eat more during the day. So try getting, at least, seven hours of sleep every night. This will also help boost your metabolism that will help you in your weight loss efforts.
