Losing weight can be quite challenging especially when you find your weighing scale not dropping a bit even after all your efforts. Because we often don’t care about what we are eating after having a stressful day at the office.
One of the important factors affecting weight loss is staying motivated and target your goals. To get yourself on the right track and to lose weight for that college prom night or wedding party you need to follow a plan that can help you to achieve your goal. Here we are giving you some simple tips that you can follow to lose weight quickly and look your best on any given day:
1. Have Eggs for Breakfast
Eggs are full of proteins and proteins make you feel fuller as well.
You won’t feel hungry for a long time and tend to eat less throughout the day. Even if you have yogurt in the morning, you will not face hunger pangs.
2. Don’t eat after 8pm
You must sleep at least 3 hours after you had your dinner. If you have food after 9pm, it will only get stored in your body because you are only going to sleep after it.
You won’t be doing any work which would consume those calories that you just had. If you eat too late in the night, it is not always because of hunger but also due to stress or boredom. This all is going to store in your body as fat, which you need to get rid of.
3. Sleep good
Lack of sleep leads to increase in your stress levels.
Stress leads to hunger and then you know that you are going to have a bite of anything that is in front of you. Sleep provides relaxation and the hormones in your body work to maintain a good balance in your system. It is thus necessary that you have at least 6-8 hours of sleep. You would know you had a proper amount of sleep if you don’t feel cranky or tired the next day.
4. Have coffee
Not by adding two teaspoons of sugar, of course.
But simple caffeine, early in the morning. Not only it would rejuvenate you but also release excessive fatty acids into the bloodstream which provides you enough energy to work-out more and be less tired. So, if you are a coffee lover try some black coffee every day and you will see results.
5. Train in the intervals
You don’t need to head to the gym for two long hours and torture yourself (if you think that way), but when you take breaks from your work, you can do high intensity training exercises.
Even a walk every now and then can help you lose calories. It would be easy to induce this much in your regular routine.
6. Head out in the sun
You must open your curtains when you wake up in the morning. It gives an energizing effect and also research proves that people who expose themselves to sunlight, do have a lesser Body-Mass-Index than those who don’t.
7. Avoid alcohol
We might drink alcohol for reducing our stress, but then we accompany it with several other snacks or junk food. It soon becomes a habit and we forget how much calories we are putting in. If you reduce your alcohol consumption, you will start noticing the change in your body.
Detoxification takes place and all the fat that had been stored in your body is consumed.
8. Count your calories
These days so many apps are also available to help you keep track of what you are eating. One must eat lesser calories and healthier food the entire day, in order to lose weight.
If you write down what you are having, you would be able to make wise decisions the next day, of what to avoid and what to have.
9. Keep Snacks Packed
In order to avoid going to the cafeteria and having unhealthy food, you should load your lunch boxes with healthy snacks like fruit or a small quantity if what you would like to indulge in.
Apple and almonds as snack, work the best.
