10 Tips to Help You Lose Weight Without Even Breaking a Sweat

We might be on the verge of seeing flying cars but we still haven’t found the magic formula to losing weight and slimming down. But there are a few things you can do that doesn’t include strenuous exercise and fad diets.

Take a look at our quick and easy tips to staying in shape, and there’s no lycra in sight.

Sometimes less is more

People make the mistake of thinking a good workout needs to be exhausting for it to be effective. It’s definitely not the case. Research shows that our bodies burn an almost equal amount of calories whether you’re doing moderate exercise or nearly killing yourself. When it comes to workouts less is more.

Find an activity you love and it won’t feel like punishment

Let’s face it if you hate exercising in its traditional form then you’re wasting your time. Find an activity you enjoy like dancing, swimming, housework, hiking or even walking around the mall. The aim is to be active and happy.

Weigh in

A very effective way of staying in shape is by weighing yourself daily, or even every second day. Seeing those numbers will reinforce positive results and you’ll think twice before going for that next slice of cake.

 

Look for foods with probiotics

Contrary to popular belief not all probiotics are created equal. Research shows the intestinal flora of overweight people is different to that of thin or average weight people. Look out for foods that have Lactobacillus rhamnosus. This is a good probiotic. Your body will thank you.

Give peas a chance, as well as beans and lentils

Sometimes you can actually eat yourself thin. Beans, chickpeas, and lentils will help you get rid of excess weight and help maintain it. Now is the time to give peas a chance.

Say yes to proteins

Protein-rich foods are good for a number of reasons. They give you more energy which means you’ll be more active, which means weight loss. Your body also needs protein, carbohydrates, and fats to function properly. While it’s a good idea to limit the intake it’s not good to exclude any from your diet completely.

Downsize

It sounds silly but trust us. If you use a smaller plate it will reduce the size of your portions and the number of calories. It might only be an illusion but you’ll feel fuller sooner.

 

Bright plates and tablecloths

If you use a tablecloth and plates that contrast you create something called the Delboeuf illusion: while the portion is the same it will look like more and you’ll feel as though you’ve eaten more. The end result will you feeling fuller while taking in the same, or even fewer calories.

Track your calorie intake

Keeping a diary or using an app to write down everything you eat in a day is a good way to keep in shape. Often you think you’ve only eaten breakfast, lunch, and dinner and can’t understand why you’re not shifting the pounds, but you (conveniently) forget all the snacks in between.

Read the labels

Reading the labels on the food items you buy makes you aware of the calories and gives you an idea of whether the snack is healthy or not. Also, you’ll be able to keep a more accurate record in your food journal. This is a good way to lose a few pounds and become more aware of what you’re putting into your body.
