Sometimes, you feel too lazy to work out. Or there could be too much work that is stopping you from going to the gym or following a diet. But your schedule or mood swings should not let you stop from losing weight. Incorporate these easy hacks in your daily life to do it effortlessly.
It’s important to stick to limited portions at every meal. Measure the snacks before munching. Pour them in a bowl instead of eating out of a bag. Use smaller plates and say no to second helpings.
If you haven’t been sleeping for seven to nine hours every day, you are not giving your body enough time to heal. Lack of sleep drains energy and makes you crave for comfort foods throughout the day, which can send your weight-loss goals for a toss.
Your mom is right. You shouldn’t have huge gaps between meals. Starving yourself for a long period means that when you eventually eat, you end up overeating, which makes you consume more calories than required. Eat meals and snacks at regular intervals to also avoid low blood sugar levels, which can leave you exhausted.
Keep your dinner to about 25 per cent of your daily calorie needs. Have it at least two to three hours before going to bed. Eating too much too late causes indigestion and sleep issues, which make it difficult to stick to your weight-loss goals.
Don’t drink calories
Empty calories and loads of sugar that come with those shakes and colas are making you put on weight apart from causing lifestyle diseases such as diabetes. Cut down on colas, packaged juices for breakfast, and that large glass of wine for dinner. Instead, stick to water, or water flavoured with ingredients like cucumber, lemon or mint to feel fresh and healthy.
