Lose Weight with These Simple Habits

Well, there are many ways to lose a lot of weight fast. However, most of them will make you hungry and unsatisfied. If you don’t have iron willpower, then hunger will cause you to give up on your plan quickly.

Desperation can tempt us to try anything, but we both know these schemes don't work. Be realistic. Lose your weight in ways that make sense, and not only will you feel lighter, you'll be happier too.

Research shows that taking baby steps—not giant leaps—is the best way to get lasting results. Check out these teeny tiny habits and vow to make them yours one step at a time.

Be friend with H20

Yes, I bet you’ve heard it before. That’s because water has zero calories and carbs and little to no sodium, making it the perfect slim-down drink. And it actually helps flush out excess water weight as well as jump-starts your metabolism. If it's just too boring, add lemon wedges or mint leaves.

Other liquids (a sports or energy drink, fruit smoothie, or light beer) may be high in sodium and carbohydrates, which trick your body into retaining water, puffing you out. So, they're a waste.

Drink coffee or green tea

Caffeine can boost your metabolism by 3-11% and energize you up. Drinking coffee an hour before working out will help you burn more calories without realizing you're pushing yourself harder. And green tea? There’s a metabolism-enhancing antioxidant known as catechins found in green tea.

Eat mostly whole, unprocessed foods

Base most of your diet on whole foods. They are healthier, more filling and much less likely to cause overeating. Fresh fruits and vegetables are perfect examples of unprocessed foods.

Eat your food slowly

Fast eaters gain more weight over time. Eating slowly makes you feel more full and boosts weight-reducing hormones.

Use smaller plates

It may sound strange, but it works. Studies show that people automatically eat less when they use smaller plates.

Limit your salt intake

Do you eat too much salt? The daily value suggests no more than 2,400 milligrams of sodium each day (or about one teaspoon). Sodium contributes to water retention, making you look and feel bloated . So keep an eye on your sodium intake. Beware of its hidden source like soups, canned foods and drinks, salty snacks such as chips and pretzels and many prepackaged foods.

Get a good night’s sleep

And do it every single night. Poor sleep is one of the strongest risk factors for weight gain (not to mention that late-night munchies), so taking care of your sleep is important. Women who get less than four hours of sleep per night have a slower metabolism than those who snooze for a full eight hours.

Move, move, move

Increasing daily activity levels by just a few minutes at a time helps you lose weight faster. Eventually, your goal should be to do at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day, but it doesn't have to be all at once.

Pretty simple, right? What else are you waiting for? Start making them your habit now. Once they become your second nature, they'll serve you well for a lifetime.
