There’s a lot of benefits to derive from losing weight. You’re healthier, more comfortable in your skin, shopping gets easier, better sleep, and above all, you can enjoy a fashionable lifestyle. This is not to say that plus sized people can’t be fashionable. They definitely can, but being slim and trim makes for a healthier living. If you are a naturally fit or trim person, good for you, but if you are not, you should really make a decision to lose weight.
There are a lot of healthy ways to lose weight as opposed to the general belief that you have to starve yourself to lose weight. However, the healthy ways to lose weight can at times leave you hungry and at these times, if your will to lose weight is not so strong, you will find yourself snacking and eating up all those things you already vowed never to eat again.
If you hope to lose weight by just counting your calories, not paying attention to your cravings, and spending a lot of time at the gym everyday, that is stressful and might end up being a total waste of time. Often times, doing the above works for a short period of time until you lose the spark with which you started.
Therefore, if you are looking to lose weight in no time, the following are some time-proven helpful tips you should follow.
Reduce your sugar and starch intake
By reducing your sugar and starch intake, you tend to eat less calories which will also help you reduce unnecessary cravings. When you do this, your body starts using the stored fat as fuel as opposed to burning carbs (which you consume) for energy.
In addition to the consumption of less calories when you reduce starch and sugar intake, when you remove carbs from your diet, it reduces your insulin levels which then makes your kidney get rid of excess water in your system. And we all know that unnecessary water retention in the body causes water weight and makes one feel bloated.
Consume Fat, Vegetables, and Protein
The addition of these three things will help you maintain the recommended servings of 20 to 50 grams on a daily basis. There are many sources of protein and they include beef, salmon, shrimp, eggs (yolk inclusive), chicken, pork and lamb. I cannot start mentioning the importance of eating protein but I want to believe we all have an idea.
Diets rich in protein helps to keep cravings at bay in that it reduces it by 60%, also, it reduces the urge to snack late at night by half and when you eat a high protein diet, you feel full even when you haven’t eaten as much as you should.
For vegetables, tomatoes, spinach, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, cucumber, lettuce are all low carbs veggies and you can consume as much as you want without exceeding the recommended servings.
Olive oil, avocado oil, coconut oil and butter also are a healthy source of fats. When you are considering a diet for weight loss, be free to have a low carb and high fat diet. This is because if you are on a low carb and low fat diet, you are bound to not lose any weight at all as you will not go far with the diet before you find yourself back to your old ways.
Coupled with the above tips, be sure to incorporate exercises in addition to your healthy lifestyle and watch out for your banging new body.
