Obesity is the cause of many diseases like hypertension, diabetes, heart stroke and the biggest of all, loss of confidence. Everybody tries to do something or the other to loose weight but do they really? I say it’s all about dedication and hardwork. Here are some of the sure shot methods for loosing those extra pounds.
Breakfast like a king:
We have always been told to eat breafast like a king, and dinner like a beggar. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, which actually gets you through the day. So the most important lesson never skip breakfast, even if you just have a glass of milk or boiled eggs. In this busy lifestyle it’s not easy to get time to actually prepare a meal. So boil some eggs the night before, crack them open in the morning and microwave for a minute. Your breakfast is ready, serve with a glass of fresh juice and slice of brown bread.
Seriously have Indian or Mexican food, the spices in these foods release adrenaline which helps you burn calories faster. Ginger, turmeric, black pepper and jalapeños are great adds to your food preparation. So having a plate of butter chicken is actually good for you, no but seriously add these spices in your regular lentils, hummus or your salad and loose some calories while eating some.
According to a survey done by university of Michigan, 400 mg of coffee is apt caffeine intake for one day. It is rich in anti-oxidents which helps recovery of cells. So go ahead and have a cup of joe but just skip the creamer, 2% milk is perfect and tasty.
Skip the salt
Keep a watch on your sodium intake as sodium is responsible for water retention in your body and is one of the main reason of water weight. Low sodium products contain 120mg or less per serving, this what a target diet plan should look like.
No to sugary drinks
Cold drinks and pop sodas are very harmful for your health because of the sugar content in these. On an average they have about 120gm of sugar in one can of soda, this amount of sugar is actually poisonous for you. The amount of sodium in these is too high, so drink fresh juice instead. Even the zero calorie drinks are high in sodium so try to avoid these.
Just start by walking, baby steps remember. Walking is the best exercise, it helps you build stamina, avoid diabetes and makes your heart muscles stronger. Start by walking around work, avoid sitting for long hours and take stairs instead of the lift. Go for a walk in the morning, the morning air is oxygen rich and helps you be ready for the day ahead. Pick up those running shoes and make a change in your lifestyle.
Seriously the easiest thing on the planet to do, sleep. An average adult requires 7-8 hours of sleep per night, sleeping helps you recover after a long day at work. If you sleep less than 7 hours per night, your metabolism slows down and you start building up weight. So ladies your beauty sleep is actually good for metabolism.
Write it down
Writing down what you eat actually helps you avoid the high calorie food items. Download an app or make a diary, according to a study people who keep track of what they eat or drink loose weight faster then whose who don’t.
In the end I would just like to add, you have one life and one body keep it fit. Keep your taste buds in control now and you can keep enjoying these items till your last breath.
