Weight loss can be considered dreadful due to a whole lot of dieting involved. Food is life, and you cannot deny that even when you are feeling more bloated than usual. Wouldn’t life be convenient and even more appealing if you could simply shed those pounds without vigorous dieting?
Most of the day, our goal is to have something yummylicious. Yet we expect it not to be too hard on our body and we wish it spares us from weight gain.
Well, excess flesh could find it’s way out of your life if you adopt these few habits. Dieting is not one of them, perfect, right?
Here is how you can lose weight without dieting:
Increase your daily intake of water
You can have 99 problems, but water can never be one. Water is always the solution to many of our worries. Guess what? It can help you with weight loss as well. The only routine you need to maintain is having a good amount of water every day, regardless. One study in adults has found that drinking half a litre (17 ounces) of water about 30 minutes before meals reduces hunger and lessens calorie intake.
Smaller portions of food will be the key
It is not just you, in fact, most people are guilty of eating large portions of food without realising, until their stomachs signal the brain that there is no more space in there. Larger portions are the direct and obvious cause of obesity and you may not figure when to stop. Divide small portions of food for different times of the day, instead of having three large and unhealthy portions, have six small and healthy portions through the day.
Keep electronic gadgets away from you while you eat
We often enjoy our meals, or anything for that matter, more when we have been paying undivided attention to them. A wandering mind often makes you not fully understand the value of quantity or quality of food. You should chew your edibles slowly, do not rush into gobbling your food down. Do not stay absent-minded. People who were distracted at a meal ate 25% more calories at later meals than those who were present. Gadgets are the most distracting for people. Keep your phone far from you, and avoid television as a distraction. Focus on your food, and be thankful for it.
Get more Vitamin D
- Like tuna, mackerel, and salmon.
- Orange juice, soy milk, and cereals.
- Beef liver.
Have food in a smaller plate
This logic works like the one about smaller food portions did. Two 2017 studies found that university students consistently put less food on a special portion control plate. A ‘portion plate’ can be ordered online. The bigger plate you will keep, the more food you will accommodate in it, and then in your tummy.
There are multiple ways to reduce weight without dieting, as you can see now. Eat well, however, what you can cut out is sugary drinks. ‘Diet’ drinks also often mislead us with their title but have a great impact on our weight negatively.
Stress can be a major factor in your weight cycle. So stop worrying about losing weight, because that will end up making you gain more. Ever heard of ‘stress eating’? Yes, it exists very much! So keep your mind healthy and happy.
Diet plans can be challenging to stick to for prolonged periods. These habits will be easy to follow and will keep you in a great frame of mind, because you will be feeling good about making some healthy changes to your lifestyle that are not as mind-boggling.
- Are you using high protein diets?
- Have you red and patchy skin?
- Is intermittent fasting is good for health?
Ditch that diet, and instead get some cooking classes that can teach you about nutritious food. Make your own meals, know what you eat. And let those taste buds thank you. Happy eating!
