1. Exercise Daily.
By exercising daily you increase your metabolism, you keep your heart healthy and you increase your chances of reducing your weight.
2. Eat in smaller plates.
Several studies show that the amount of food you eat depends on the size of your plates. The bigger the plate the more food you will eat. There is a psychological connection between the size of the plate and the amount of food you eat regardless of how hungry you are.
3. Make smart food choices.
Reducing your food servings will help you lose weight but being selective on the foods you eat will help you lose weight faster.
4. Sleep at least 7 hours per day.
Research indicates that people who sleep less than 7 hours per day tend to accumulate more weight than people who sleep normally. There is a scientific logic behind this and has to do with hormones released during sleep.
5. Remove the skin from chicken.
By removing the skin from chicken you can save up to 100 calories per normal piece.
6. Do not forget your favorite foods.
Many people tend to completely abandon their favorite foods from their diet especially when the foods carry a lot of calories. This is not recommended because eventually you will give up and eat those foods in larger quantities. You better keep them in your diet and have them as a ‘reward’ for achieving your weight loss goals.
7. Throw away junk food from your kitchen and fridge.
They say that ‘Prevention is always the best cure’, and this is true for weight loss as well. Instead of being tempted you better save yourself from the trouble and remove any junk food, sweets, full fat foods and drinks from your kitchen and fridge. Instead replace those foods with fresh fruits and vegetables.
8. Substitute full fat with low fat.
Milk is essential for the body because of the vitamins and minerals it contains but this does not mean that you need to drink full fat milk. Instead switch to low-fat milk and save tens of calories per day. If you do some simple calculations of the calories you can save per day you will realize that this is very important if you want to lose weight. You can also do the same with sugar soft drinks and diet soft drinks.
9. Walking is one of the easiest ways to lose weight.
Do not be afraid to walk. Every time you get a chance to walk see this as an opportunity to shed a few pounds. Try to find ways to walk as much as you can. You can cleverly park your car away from your office so that you get a chance to walk from and to your work on a daily basis. While at work ignore the elevators and do some cardio exercises by using the stairs.
10. Do not take cream with your coffee.
Many people follow a diet to lose weight but they drink their coffee sweet with milk and cream. This literally can destroy your efforts especially when you drink 5-6 coffee drinks per day. Instead try to get used to black coffee with no sugar. Once you get into the habit of drinking black coffee you will also realize that it tastes better.
