We all know that dieting and exercising are the key elements of weight loss. But the trouble with these notions is that they are too broad. Here are some new specific weight loss tips which will perfectly work for women.
Make healthy eating habits a lifestyle
The problem with all diets is that they are to end sooner or later. And no one can guarantee that the hardly-achieved results will last long. The new eating habits should become your lifestyle. Make a list of unhealthy and fattening products in your ration and decide, which of them you can easily exclude. If you can’t give up on some foods completely, you can decide, for example, that you will eat them on special occasions or set weekly limits for those products.
Your daily ration should consist mostly of fiber-rich foods, vegetables, and fruits. Try to eat less added sugars and refined carbs.
Make exercising a lifestyle
It is very helpful to go to the gym now and then or even regularly, but it will be much more effective if physical activity becomes a part of your daily routine. Walk whenever and wherever you can or buy yourself a bicycle.
Choose the physical activity which you like
When we choose a physical activity we usually consider how effective it will be in terms of helping us lose weight. However, if you don’t like gym workouts you will be inventing hundreds of excuses to skip them whenever you can.
Therefore, find something you really like whether it will be jogging or aerobics so that you won’t have to force yourself into it.
Don’t eat too fast
One of the reasons why we overeat is that we swallow the food too quickly. The thing is that our brain needs some time to process information about the food we have eaten and to send signals to depress appetite. Therefore, we manage to consume much more than we actually need before we feel satiation. This won’t happen if you take your time during any meal and chew a bit more slowly.
Buy a large mirror and eat in front of it
Some research shows that when we eat in front of a mirror we usually consume less food. Our reflection serves as a reminder that our aim is to lose weight and we are more likely to control ourselves.
Give spicy food a try
Hot sauce enriches even the plain and low-fat food while speeding up your metabolism and helping to lose weight. That is why you should consider including salsa and cayenne pepper into your ration.
Burn your ships and clothing
Once your weight has started going down you should get rid of the clothes which don’t fit you anymore. In this case, there will be no way back for you which will serve as an additional incentive.
Brush teeth right after your dinner
If you brush teeth right after your evening meal you are more likely to restrain the from late-night snacks. The same rule applies to the rest of the meals.
Diversify your life
As you may already know, people often eat out of boredom, frustration or habit. On the contrary, people who are absorbed in some interesting activity often forget to eat and don’t feel hunger for hours. Diversify your life and don’t be afraid to try completely new things. Begin new hobbies whether it will be arts, dancing, foreign languages, knitting or gardening. Your self-esteem will improve as you will learn new interesting things and your weight will go down.
