STOP AT 7!
This is a fundamental rule of easy weight loss! Obviously the time you stop eating depends on your routine and lifestyle – but as a rule you should stop eating a good 3 to 4 hours before you plan on going to bed. You need to give your body time to work off your meals, and eating any later than this means that it will struggle to metabolise your meal. Your lunch should be the largest portion of food you eat in your day as your body has plenty of time and energy left to burn those calories off, helping you towards quick weight loss.
EAT MIRACLE FOODS!
Did you realise that there are certain things that you can eat that actually contain less calories than your body burns while you eat them?! To me, that is a small miracle! So if you want to snack – snack on those foods for easy weight loss. Choose from celery, cucumber, watermelon, blueberries, lettuce, green beans, grapes or pears .
Detoxing is a great way to fast weight loss. The detox process flushes our system of toxins that build up and stop our bodies from functioning efficiently. There are various products to help you detox, depending on how you prefer to do it. But a simple way to start to cleanse your system is to start taking a detox supplement such as the Detox Tablet from Silver Slimming.
Research has shown that getting several short bursts of activity into each day is just as effective in achieving easy weight loss as 1 hour long cardio session. And this is good news because there are ways of getting those bursts in to your day without having to make extra time and in ways that you will hardly notice! Starting today, if there are stairs climb them! Avoid the elevator when ever you possibly can. Park your car at the back of the car park and walk briskly. Get off the bus one or even two stops earlier than usual. Every time you are waiting for the kettle to boil or the microwave to ping, do squats or jog on the spot! By introducing these small things into every day you will be raising your heart rate and building your fitness levels. If those stairs leave you breathless today, wait until this time next week – you will see an improvement! And all of this will burn calories and keep your metabolism going throughout the day.
It really is the most important meal of the day. Eat a big breakfast that is sensible and low in saturated fat and your metabolism gets to work, burning off calories for the rest of the day. It is that simple!
Green tea that is! Drinking green tea or taking it as a supplement has been proven to have huge health benefits. Not only does it reduce cholesterol and slow down the aging process but it also is known for its weight loss properties as It helps your body to digest fats and speed up metabolism. Pu-erh tea is a good tea to try after each meal to help with fast weight loss.
Make sure your diet is rich in fibre. Foods like figs, chickpeas, brown rice, beans, bran, nuts and strawberries are all a good source of fibre. It is so beneficial because it not only fills you up, but it powers through your system, flushing it out and taking fats and protein with it!
No not alcohol! Water. Making sure you stay hydrated is so important. Aim to drink at least a litre a day. Firstly, it fills your tummy making you feel full and so less likely to crave food. Secondly when you are dehydrated your brain will try to let your body know it needs water, but this often feels like hunger to us. And so we will eat instead of simply drinking some water. When your body is hydrated your metabolism keeps ticking along, burning fat! And lastly, it is worth remembering that drinking ice cold water actually burns calories! As much as 60 a day!
Well you know you have to start eating a good healthy breakfast to start off each day, but its also the best time of day to get moving! There is no getting away from it – Research has shown that we can burn 3 times as much fat in a morning work out than we can at any other time of the day. By kick starting your body like this every day it will keep on working at top speed for the rest of the day. And that means fat burning galore! You are feeling at your most energetic and more likely to give it your all, unlike at the end of a long day when the last thing you feel like is exercising. And the best thing is – if you do something the instant you get out of bed you are more likely just to do it – and not put it off!
Finally, whenever you feel yourself lose motivation and are starting to give in to temptation, ask your self to make a choice. It’s a little psychological trick that I use and it works every time! Ask your self “which do I want more – this cake/pizza/burger or comfortable size 10 jeans”? Imagine both of these options are actually in front of you and all you have to do is take one and its yours. Which one would you choose? As silly as it sounds it is important to remember that it is actually that simple – it is a series of small choices like this that will eventually pay off! And sooner than you think if you start to implement these weight loss tips now!
