7 Simple Ways to Lose Weight
Are you looking to kick-start your body revolution? Here are some everyday rules to follow.
1. Eat at least 8g of fibre at breakfast.
Experts recommend that women get 30-35g of fibre daily.
Fibre is a powerful tool, as it is bulky and keeps you satisfied. High-fibre meals also trigger the release of cholecystokinin.
2. Make sure you have a 150-calorie morning and afternoon snack.
It is OK if you skip the morning nibble if you are not hungry. But an afternoon snack is non-negotiable, as it helps keep your blood sugar. Then you won’t be too eager to grab huge amount of food for dinner.
3. Get at least seven hours’ sleep every night.
Dozens of studies indicate that people without enough sleep tend to weigh more, as they simply look to food to get them through the day. They will especially tend to take sugary, high-calorie stuff.
4. Plan at least tree go-to brekfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks.
Have quick you-know-they’re-healthy meals to pack for lunch, or buy at a nearby cafe, you are setting yourself up to succeed. Same principal suits dinner and snacks. Plan ahead will help you avoid grabing fat-loaded food.
5. Have an after-dinner treat every day.
We are human and we need treats. If you simply take your after-dinner treat away, it is like working 365 days a year without a holiday. It bill definitely burn you out. The trick is to watch on the calaries.
6. Think twice about toppings and add-ons.
The simpler you eat, the better. Even healthy extras, such as goat cheese, avocado, dried fruits or nuts, can add calories.
7. Make vegtable the base of your lunch and dinner.
Take your lunches and dinners as a pyramid. Vegetables should be the base, then lean protein, and a small amount of healthy carbs to top it off. Eating in this new way, you could eat more food but get fewer calories a day than having a typical diet.
