Here the top ten tips for weight loss
Eat slowly to lose weight
- Eating slowly increases the levels of gut hormones responsible for feeling full, which may help reduce calorie intake. Eating slowly promotes thorough chewing To eat slowly, you need to chew your food thoroughly before swallowing. This can help you reduce calorie intake and lose weight.
For one thing, keeping a food diary instantly increases your awareness of what, how much, and why you are eating. It also helps you to objectively look at what changes you should make in what you are eating, and also what emotional factors may have impacted how much or what you may have eaten.
Keep your body moving
Each day, every time you can, find ways to add some movement or exercise into your life, no matter what part of your body.
Keep a daily gratitude journal, to avoid stress and the accompanying “trigger” of wanting something to eat
Negative emotions and stress oftentimes cause people to eat, out of frustration and dealing with the negativity. If you have a journal of things that keep you focused on the positive things in your life, you will be less likely to eat out of frustration.
Batch cook and prep
Batch cooking helps you to stick to a healthy diet. When you’re tired and hungry it’s easy to reach for foods that might not be best for your health or weight loss; I’m talking about high fat, high sugar and overly processed convenience foods. If you’re like me, it’s at these times when we’re more likely to overeat too. Having healthy meals already cooked, that just need heating up, is a great way to stick to your healthy eating goals.
Get plenty of sleep
Studies have shown that less than seven hours of sleep per night was attributed to weight gain.
Don’t skip meals
When you skip a meal, your body goes into “survival” mode, causing it to crave food, and result in overeating. This over-consumption of food causes weight gain.
Drink plenty of water
Drinking water makes a person feel “full” faster, avoids high-calorie drink intake, burns fat, removes heavy waste products, and increases calorie burning.
All of these tips should help you keep slimmer during the upcoming holidays.
