Are you fat and trying to lose weight? Are you not fat and still trying to lose weight? Your answer must have been yes to either of the questions. Because that is what the world has conditioned us to be. A thin and lean body has been so idolized that everyone is striving to have one. Striving towards a healthy body is not wrong but going on a diet just because you want to fit in the extra small kurta you bought can be dangerous for your health. But if you are dreaming of good health, you can do so by following some simple weight loss tips.
Weight Loss is probably the most talked-about issue in our society and every second person is one way or another trying their bit to shed their extra pounds. The problem of obesity is very common yet the right understanding about what to do for weight loss is missing. For proper guidance, you can book an appointment with the best nutritionist in Lahore or any other city of Pakistan via Marham.pk.
For weight loss, you should know that it is important to adopt healthy lifestyle changes that can actually help you in achieving your goal. Here are five simple lifestyle changes that can help you lose a lot of weight.
1. Drink Water Before Each Meal
Water plays an essential and extremely vital part in your weight loss journey. It’s one of the easiest yet most commonly overlooked aspects if you want to lose weight fast. When your body is dehydrated because of not drinking water, your metabolism slows down. This sends signals that your brain misinterprets as hunger. If you drink a glass of water before your meal, it will help curb your appetite much quicker and keep you from eating excess calories.
Keep in mind that you shouldn’t drink water just before or immediately after having a meal. This can dilute your gastric juices and hinder proper digestion. Always drink water at least before 30 minutes before having a meal.
2. Downsize Your Plate and Portions
Studies have shown that the size of your plate and portions you eat in has great importance in weight loss. It has been found that if you have a smaller plate size, it will help you in keeping your willpower under control by putting a capacity on your portions. The right way to go about is to enlarge the size of your water cup while on the other hand, you should also seriously consider shrinking the size of your plate.
Calorie restriction is the basic demand for weight loss. Going on a special diet might affect your psychology because dieting does come with mental pressure. Simply downsizing your plate can help you restrict your calories easily. This will also give you an impression of a fuller plate, satisfying at least your eyes.
3. Use Your Legs More Often
Another important point to know is that your legs are the strongest muscles in your body and tend to burn a great percentage of calories when you use them more often. Try to walk throughout the day to use your legs more often. Always prefer taking the stairs instead of the elevator, stand up and take breaks from long intervals of sitting.
Even if you can’t go to a gym or take out time for proper exercise, simply being active in your daily chores can help a bundle.
4. Find Healthier Alternatives
Most of the unhealthy foods that you take which stack up for weight gain can easily be substituted with healthier options. Instead of going for coffee cream and sugar, try low-fat milk and half the amount of sugar and see the effects. Substitute items like granola with oatmeal, white bread with whole-grain, and mustard for mayonnaise.
Simply exchanging things with their healthier alternatives can help you a lot. This way you don’t have to completely cut off a lot of things and still lose weight.
5. Eat Slowly And At The Table
Studies have shown that if you slow down while eating during your meal, it will keep you away from overeating and can help you lose even 30 pounds in a month. Take smaller bites of your meal and sit at a table to keep you eating too many calories.
You can measure the effect of this simple tip yourself. Try eating in front of a TV along with your favorite drama. You will keep eating until the drama finishes. This leads to overeating. Sitting on a dining table, eating, and getting up will reduce your eating time and hence the calories.
