A diet for weight loss is a very complicated task. To refrain from food and the small culinary desires that are normal in the life of each of us, is difficult even for those who have a lot of will.
The first thing you can do for yourself and your health is to do some analysis of the menu and make the necessary changes to make your diet healthy.
Another aspect to remember is to eat regularly and spend as much time as possible when you eat. In principle, you should eat normally (not too much) between meals, and choose two healthy snacks between meals. The ideal hours are: breakfast at 7.00, snack at 10.30, lunch at 13.00, second snack at 15.30, dinner at 18.30.
Here are 16 ways that help us lose weight without going on a diet:
1.Never skip the morning meal, which is the basis of any diet that aims to lose weight.
2.Emotional and mental well-being is very important.
A good emotional and mental state is essential to have perfect health, and when it comes to losing weight even more so. The body is already under stress: you give it less food to force it to lose extra pounds.
3.Do not overeat. Eat close to satiety. You can put the leftover food in a casserole, in the refrigerator, and you can take it as a package at work.
4.Get more sleep.
5.Change from milk to nonfat or lowfat milk.
6.Use sugar substitute rather than sugar in your morning espresso or latte.
7.Drink black coffee or avoid adding sugar to tea.
8.Drink a glass of water before each meal.
Hydration is very important to you. In addition, you will partially fill your stomach and eat less.
9.Limit alcohol consumption. It brings a lot of calories and prevents fat from melting.
10.Chew gum, but without sugar. It’s a good solution to cut cravings.
11.Eat healthier snacks, such as dried fruits and nuts, fresh fruits, vegetables or yogurt.
12.Eat on a smaller plate.
Use an appetizer plate 24 cm (9 inches) in diameter s instead of a plate larger than 32 cm (12 inches).
The plate will look full of food, so you will automatically feel like you are eating more.
13.Don’t keep too much junk food around you
It cannot be said that you should never eat junk food again. Sometimes (maybe once a week) a little treat is welcome. You can get rid of the temptation to eat junk food by putting it in places you don’t have access to all the time (pantry, top shelves in the kitchen, etc.). For example, if you leave the bowl of candy or the bag of chips on the table, whenever you pass by the table, you will be very tempted to eat from them.
14.Use whole grains instead of white bread, rice and cereals. Not only will you reduce fat and calories, but whole grains have been proven to reduce the risk of colon cancer by increasing the fiber your body needs.
15.Avoid eating carbohydrates and fats together. This combination increases people’s cravings and provides too many calories with almost no nutritional value (such as pizza, biscuits, French fries, doughnuts, etc.).
16.Move more. Leave your taxi or personal car at home. Take the subway, walk a little, take at least a few steps to work. You will lose weight without any effort. At the same time, in the subway you can have some relaxing moments in which you can read a few pages from your favorite book or magazine.
You don’t have to go on a strict diet to lose weight. Change to more sensible eating habits and start moving your body by walking, swimming or bicycle riding. You’ll be rewarded by good health and a fit body.
