How to lose weight fast

 

Losing weight is a dynamic combination of exercise plans and dieting.  Many people follow fad diets whereas others may inculcate lifestyle changes to shed pounds in a sustainable way. Small but significant lifestyle changes will help you lose weight fast.



Some tips how to lose weight fast:



•    The small plate movement

Reduce the size of your plate and see how you control the portion of food intake. Many people consume food more than their body needs, leading to an increase in the body weight. Try using a 10 inch plates for your meals to consume less calories.


•    Take the stairs
Climb a flight of stairs in a series of 10 and drop kilos of weight in a matter of months. This exercise strains your knee and leg and is not suggested for people with ligament tears or knee problems.


•    Eat Spicy Food

Consumption of spicy foods is reported to make you lose weight fast according to Penn State’s associate professor of behavioural health, Shiela West. Spicy foods increase your metabolism and burns calories at a faster pace when combined with exercises.


•    Water

It will not help substitute for solid food items. But it will fill your stomach 20 minutes before your meal. This will prevent you from over eating thereby, reducing the portion of your serving and cutting the calorie count.


•    Milk
Dairy products are usually tabooed for people on diets but this strategy may back fire. Research proves that drinking low fat or no fat milk will increasing the calcium levels in the body which helps to burn fat.


•    Cook at home
The portion served in a restaurant is almost 2 to 3 times of what you consume at home. Cooking at home is a better option as you can trust the quality and freshness and monitor your calorie intake to lose weight quickly.


•    The Virgin Salad

Replace your snacks with salads and save yourself the trouble of adding mayonnaise and a host of sauces to your salad. Keep it pure. The salad is best natural and keeps the calories at bay while filling your stomach owing to high fibre content.

•    Don’t check your weight daily

Checking your weight on the weighing scale everyday will only confuse you even more and even if you lose 100 grams, you may have the urge to eat since you lost some weight, nullifying the entire process of weight loss.
