There is more to starvation diets and crazy gimmicks (that can almost kill you) when it comes to strategies to lose weight and be fit. Don’t you want to know what they are?

How to stay fitMore than patience, all our efforts to lose weight question the integrity of our ability to think positively. We are just too adamant on analyzing the results before even starting out a good deal of what we should to smile confidently at ourselves looking at the mirror. It is positivity and only positively, of course with your efforts, that work their way to erase frown lines from your face. Below are some of the best ways to lose weight and stay fit that you will wish you knew earlier.


Use your Body’s Fat to Burn Fat

If you are trying to once again lose kilos that you had lost about a few months ago, you are not alone. Almost 50 per cent of women who have had tried to lose weight before and in fact, lost it for good, regained it in less than a month or two. Regrettably, more than a quarter of these women have dieted so many times that they almost lost track of the number. The good news is that our bodies contain good fat as well as bad fat. The good fat is called brown fat which contains mitochondria; the part of cells that generates heat and once activated through exercise it can eat away the bad fat.

Pop Vitamin D

Researches in a study at the University of Minnesota found that people, who began their weight loss program with higher levels of vitamin D consumption, lost more than those people who did not take enough of the super nutrient. Vitamin D boosts leptin’s effectiveness. Leptin is a hormone that tells the brain that you are full when you are eating food. Since vitamin D is difficult to extract from food, it may be beneficial to take it with the help of dietary supplements.


Ditch Sociotropy

Sociotropy is giving in to the requests of your peers or family members to eat something that is full of fat such as desserts after a dinner party. It is important to feel the urge to not eat something that is harmful for your body and counterproductive to your plans. When your peers force you to join them in binging unhealthy food, remember to say no and sternly.

Chew on your Food

A lot of us eat quickly and avoid chewing food. Slow down your chewing time and we guarantee that you will slim down. According to a study, those who chewed each bite at least 40 times ate a lot less i.e. almost 12 per cent less than those who chewed as less as 15 times. As you take time to chew, your body produces less of ghrelin, the hormone that increases one’s appetite and increases the production of peptide, the hormone that curbs hunger.

Be Close to Nature

According to a study done in North Carolina, those countries that had more of natural amenities like lakes, mountains, and hills had low obesity rates. Besides, several researches have shown that people feel happier when they walk outdoors compared with those who walk or exercise indoors.

Losing weight is not easy, but it sure is a great deal of dedication. Do you have it in you?
