Have you been trying to lose weight for quite some time now? Do you keep failing your diet plans and bunking gym or daily walks?Here are some fool proof ways to lose weight without dieting or exercise.
Fool proof ways to lose weight without dieting or exercise are:
1.Drink a Glass of Water Before Every Meal: This tactic takes advantage of your stomach's limited capacity of storing food and drinks in one go. And therefore, makes you feel full faster, which means you eat less. In fact, studies have shown that 44% people who adhere to this practice of drinking water before meals lose weight over 3 months as compared to those who don't.
2.Chew Slowly: It has been proven that people who eat fast gain weight faster than those who don't. The reason is simple. Those who chew slowly know it as soon as they are full. And so they stop eating. While those who eat fast, don't realize this and end up overeating. In fact, one study has shown that your brain realizes you are full only after 20 minutes from the time you start eating. So make sure you eat slower to take advantage of this.
3.Eat without Electronic Distraction: It is very easy to get lost in the TV show you are watching or the podcast you are listening to while you eat. And this distraction causes you to overeat. So keep the electronic devices away. And try and enjoy the meal before you.
4.Use Smaller Plates: This psychological hack tricks your mind in thinking that a small portion size is actually quiet large. And this way you feel you have eaten enough once you finish the food on your plate. On the other hand, using larger plates make your regular portions of food feel smaller, so you end up piling on more (remember buffet lines?). And this not only causes you to overeat (because you don't want to waste food), but also causes you to waste more food (because you cannot stuff in beyond a certain limit). So use smaller plates to hack your mind and lose more weight.
5.Increase the Protein in Your Meals: Proteins build muscles, repair tissues, and increase your basal metabolism (which in turn burns more fat). In fact, one study found that simply increasing your protein intake to 30% can help you lose up to 5kg weight in 3 months without dieting. So stack up on the chicken, eggs, and fish (if you are a non-vegetarian), and consume more nuts and dal (if you are not).
6.Eat More Fiber-rich Food: Fibers fill up your stomach fast, but do not add any calories since they are not absorbed by your body. So eat more roughage, like beans, drumsticks, oats, apples, and oranges. In fact, all fruits are rich in insoluble fibers.
7.Remove Cola and Sugary Drinks From Your Diet: Carbonated and fizzy drinks (like Coke and Pepsi) are so high in sugar that just one glass every day can pack on tires of fat in your body. So cut them out entirely. And that includes fruit juices that come in cans and tetra packs because the processing eliminates all the fiber from the juice, and so you are left with only the natural sugars in the fruit (which are not healthy at all!).
8.Keep Unhealthy Snacks Out of Sight: Out of sight, out of mind, is the mind hack that comes handy when it comes to losing weight without dieting or exercise. So keep the crisps and nachos out of sight in a cupboard that is hard to reach (as it will capitalize on your laziness). And don't store them front-and-center in your refrigerator, so you don't end up stuffing yourself when you are struck by midnight food cravings.
These are the fool proof ways to lose weight.
