18 Simple Tips To Shed Some Serious Weight
How many of us have become determined to lose weight, only to get discouraged by the amount of time it takes? There is no doubt there are too many of us.
Well, weight loss does take time. But there is some good news too – you can lose weight in as little time as a week. With the right changes in your habits, you can adopt a healthy way of living, and weight loss would no longer be a dreaded process.
The 18 tips we talk about in this post can help you shed pounds and lose fat, all in just a week.
1. Practice Portion Control
You can’t even think of losing weight if you don’t let go of your large plate. It’s plain common sense – reducing the size of your plate means eating less, and eating less means fewer calories.
Usually, when we are dining, we tend to eat more than what is required – a terrible habit most of us have unknowingly cultivated. Cut the portions in half and ensure you are choosing smaller portions.
A study conducted at The Pennsylvania State University talks about research that has shown the relation between large portions and obesity. It also says that for weight management, you can eat larger portions of low-energy-dense foods.
2. Don’t Eat In Front Of The Television
Watching television while eating (no matter large or small meals) can lead to mindless eating. You tend to focus on what’s happening on the television screen, and become unaware of what’s going inside your mouth and stomach. And, ultimately, you end up overeating.
Eat at the dining table, and focus on your food. This helps you become aware of what you are eating, and you will only eat as much as you require.
3. Eat Before You Get Hungry
You must start eating before you feel too hungry, and stop before you are full. This is because when we starve, we tend to eat more than we actually should – that spells disaster. This is the reason people who starve themselves to lose weight only end up gaining more.
Remember to eat slowly and not when you are starving. Also, remember to end your meal just before you are about to be satisfied and let that burp out. Post that, drink a glass of water and you will be fine.
