No, weight loss supplements nor a corset diet is the the solution. In fact, it’s the small lifestyle changes that will sustain you towards weight loss. Weight-loss experts have shared tricks that will help you get fit quick and eventually slim you down (and trust us, they’re a hundred percent safe).
Lessen Your Booze Intake
Eliminating those cozy red wine is indeed an efficient way to trim down quickly. Don’t worry, though. You can get back to drinking alcohol once you’ve gained results from abstaining from it for some time. Keri Gans, R.D., author of The Small Change Diet, says, “It’s just a quick trick to help you jump start your weight loss efforts without having to do anything super drastic.”
Don’t Eat Past 9 P.M.
There’s no special foods or a gym workout that will let you lose weight. You just have to give you stomach a break after 9 p.m. Eating after dinner gives you the extra calories you’ve been trying to avoid because you’ve already consumed enough during the day.
Down in More Water
It works. “Our bodies can mistake dehydration for hunger, so one of the easiest ways to reset your appetite is to stay hydrated,” says Michelle Davenport, Ph.D., R.D. Also, research has shown that eating soupy foods like brothy soups and salads with lots of juicy vegetables can keep us full with fewer calories. Aim to have at least six glasses of water a day.
Get Enough Sleep
This is the easiest weight loss tip so far. If you can get eight hours of sleep each night, you do your hormones that control hunger and satiety cues a big favor. Eight hours of sleep each night keep those hormones balanced and our appetites in check as well.
Spend Less Time at the Gym
Use the gym at intervals. That is, perhaps, the most efficient way. By doing a certain exercise at your max intensity for short intervals (with recovery breaks in between) you burn more calories in less time.
Sip Some Coffee
Coffee can be an efficient tool to help you slim down because caffeine increases the release of free fatty acids in the bloodstream that helps you train longer and more intensely. It can also suppress your appetite.
Include Protein and Fiber In Your Daily Meals
In order to lose weight, don’t count your calories; count your protein and fiber intake. “Research has found that the exact number of calories needed to shed pounds is specific to the individual and that it’s more effective to track protein and fiber-the nutrients that keep us full at every meal,” says Davenport. Make sure to have protein and fiber as a staple in your meal, and you’ll be good to go.
