1. Eat Regularly
Eating at regular intervals through the day helps to burn calories faster. This technique also helps to cut down on cravings at funny times. Usually these cravings involve high fat foods so if you can keep these out, it can only be a good thing.
2. Never Skip Breakfast
Contrary to what many believe, skipping breakfast will NOT help you to lose weight. Missing out on breakfast could easily mean missing out on vital nutrients that your body needs, and this could open up the possibility of snacking even more than usual to curb your hunger.
3. Eat lots of Fruits and Vegetables
Remember that most fruit and vegetables are extremely low in fat and calories and extremely high in fiber. All three elements are crucial for efficient weight loss. Fruits are also rich in vitamins and minerals. So what are you waiting for?
4. Give it Plenty in the Gym!
Getting in plenty of cardio is essential for keeping the weight off. Cardio is a great way of burning off extra calories that you wouldn’t normally shift through diet alone. I recommend light running, cycling, and even skipping! Providing your exercise regimen is in place along with your diet, a good quality fat burner can make things even easier!
5. Drink as Much Water as Possible
It’s quite easy to mix up thirst with hunger! By doing this you can easily eat extra calories that your body doesn’t really need when all you really needed was a glass of water!
6. Eat Foods High in Fiber
High fiber foods can help you feeling fuller for longer. This is prefect for losing weight wouldn’t you say? Remember, fiber can only be found in plant based foods such as oats, fruit and veg, wholegrain bread, lentils, peas, beans, brown rice and pasta.
7. Read all your Food Labels
By familiarizing and understanding food labels makes it easier to make healthier choices. Calorie information is particularly important to calculating whether a particular food sits-well with your daily calorie allowance.
8. User Smaller Plates
As ridiculous as it sounds, using a smaller plate will help you reduce your portion sizes over time. Smaller plates will help you adjust to smaller portion sizes easier and without starving yourself. Did you know that it takes your stomach 20 minutes to tell your brain that it needs to stop eating because it’s full? Learn to eat slowly!
9. Don’t Stop Yourself From Eating Certain Foods
The more you deprive yourself from certain foods, the more you will crave them. There’s no reason why you should deprive yourself from the occasional treat providing you stay within your daily calories allowance.
10.Stop Stacking Junk Food
If you have junk food in the house, chances are you will eat it sooner or later. Chips, soda, cookies and chocolate are the prime culprits when it comes to ruining people’s diets! Instead of buying crap, choose healthier options instead like unsalted rice cakes, oat cakes, fruit, popcorn (obviously unsalted and unsweetened) and water!
11.Cut out Boozing
Your typical glass of wine will contain roughly the same amount of calories as a bar of chocolate (I’m talking a large bar!). If you’re a regular drinker, you will notice that weight will slowly creep on and you’ll be left wondering where these damn tires come from!
12.Planning is Crucial
Get into the habit of planning your food intake for the week. Include everything, your breakfasts, your lunches, dinners and even snacks. This will help you keep an eye on your daily calories intake which is crucial when trying to shred. Making a weekly shopping list can get you into this habit pretty easily.
