5 Foolproof Ways of How to Lose Weight Fast and Easy

Posted in: , , , , ,

An easy, painless, and effortless way to lose weight fast? Yes, please! Most of us want to shed those extra pounds but are not willing to make huge steps toward our health and fitness. May it be lack of time due to work and a busy schedule, discouragement from others, or an unhealthy lifestyle that's hard to let go, there always seems something that gets on your way, right?

Well, don't lose hope just yet and listen up! There are several ways to lose weight without starving or depriving yourself nor beating your body while doing intense workouts. Yes! You've read that right! So, keep reading for instructions and tips on how to lose weight fast and easy!

1. Add to your diet instead of subtracting.
Instead of removing too much from your daily diet and denying or starving yourself, just add healthy food choices that you actually like. A few great examples are juicy fruits and fresh vegetables, lean meats, whole grains, low-fat dairy, stews, soups, and others.

Based on the experience of a registered dietitian and author of 101 Optimal Life Foods David Grotto, taking away never works in diets because it gives an ill feeling of deprivation, making the practice burdensome and hard to maintain. However, Grotto reminds to still keep an eye on your overall calorie intake.

2. Cut back on your sugar and carbohydrate intake.
Sugars, starches, and other carbs are the main reasons behind extra weight and obesity. Therefore, you should reduce your intake of these foods to shed some weight quickly. Give up sugary drinks, treats, and soda and go for wholesome food and more water instead.

Doing so can help you control your hungry levels, so you don't end up eating too many calories. This way, you can eat to fullness instead of restricting your intake and ending up hungry. Also, a low-carb diet forces your body to burn off stored fat for energy, which is important for a healthy weight loss.

Cutting carbohydrates also lower insulin levels in the body, which stimulates the kidneys to remove excess water and sodium in the body, reducing unnecessary water weight and bloating.

This simple practice is so effective that people find that they can lose up to 10 pounds or more after just one week of doing it.

It is not uncommon to lose up to 10 pounds (sometimes more) in the first week of eating this way, both body fat, and water weight.

3. Prepare your meals in advance.
Sure, preparing your meals during the weekend requires a little bit more effort and time, but it saves you money and time over the week.

Health expert and author Betty Clark also say that thinking of what to eat just once in a week instead of multiple times. You won't have to worry about eating the same thing over and over either since you have full control of what you will prepare.

Having something that is quickly and easily accessible also prevents you from reaching for junk foods, sweets, and fast food. University of Buffalo researchers even discovered that limiting the variety of foods you eat and eating at regular intervals will not only help you eat less but will also reduce the temptation to overindulge.

4. Pay more attention to your breakfast.
While all meals are actually important, your first one is arguably the most important so you can jumpstart your day on the right track. Try preparing a hearty breakfast that satisfies your hunger and actually fills you up, so you don't go craving for unhealthy foods throughout the day.

Make it heavy, around 400 to 500 calories and don't forget to add a nice portion of lean meat and to fill fat like those in Greek yogurt, nuts, beans, and eggs. Fiber from fruits, veggies, and whole grains is also essential in stabilizing your blood sugar levels and can help you slim down without much effort.

5. Sleep a little bit more.
Hitting the snooze button and getting at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night has more benefits than you might expect. Not only does this improve your energy levels and mood but can even be the laziest way to shed a few pounds.

In fact, Canadian study spanning over 6 years reported that people who sleep for just 5 to 6 hours nightly tend to gain 4.5 pounds more than those who sleep longer.

Many studies also showed that sleep deprivation can increase the levels of the hunger hormone and slow down metabolism and the calorie-burning rate of the body.

All of these tips will allow you to lose maximum weight in a month. But take caution, rapid weight loss may come with unwanted side effects.

Losing weight without the grueling workouts and starvation is very possible! You'll find that following these tips and adapting a few small changes in your food choices and eating habits can do wonders for pulling down and maintaining your weight. The sooner you decide to do these practices, the sooner you'll see results. So what are you waiting for? Here's to a healthy, fitter, and slimmer you!
