Weight loss tips.
Consider choosing 4 or 5 of these weight loss tips
Choose ones that resonate with you most and implement them for 60 days.
After, you can choose a few other ideas to see what works best with your lifestyle. This is a great way to become more aware of daily habits that may be affecting your body’s ability to metabolize fat efficiently.
1. Eat breakfast containing adequate protein daily
This helps turn on metabolism and stabilize blood sugar reactions (and cravings) later in the day.
2. Finish eating three hours before bedtime
This is the start of a prime fat-burning time (9-12 hours after dinner).
3. Get a good night’s sleep
Sleep is a prime weight loss tip. If you’re not sleeping well, fat loss may be compromised.
4. Support your liver
Your liver is essential to metabolic balance, energy, hormone production, digestion, and detoxification. Reducing processed foods and environmental toxins can provide a good start.
5. Eliminate artificial sweeteners
These zero-calorie sweeteners fuel weight gain via the actions of insulin.
6. Explore the impact of food sensitivities
Eliminate the common food allergens for a few months: wheat/gluten, dairy, and corn.
7. Have soup for dinner for 7 days
Make it a nutritious choice (homemade if possible). Then wake up to a nutritious, high-protein breakfast.
8. Consume fermented foods
Sauerkraut, yogurt, Kombucha, miso, balance gut bacteria. Certain gut bacterial imbalances can promote obesity.
9. Keep a bowl of fruit at work
This works well for a sweet, nutritious, high-fiber treat rather than a candy bowl.
10.Monitor portions for weight loss
Eating smaller portions of the food you regularly eat.
11. Eat enough fiber
Fiber keeps you feeling full, aids healthy digestion and is an often ignored weight loss tip. Strive for 25-30 grams per day.
12. Manage stress
Chronic stress can prevent weight loss and promote weight gain, especially around your middle. Start with a few minutes of deep breathing daily.
13. Slow down and eat mindfully
Unconscious eating leads to overeating since it takes 20 minutes for your brain to receive the message that your stomach is full.
14. Toxicity can impair weight loss
When you are dealing with an excess of toxins, your body activates back-up strategies for dealing with the overload, which include expanding the number of fat cells and stuffing them with toxins as well as fat. To rid your body of toxins, be sure to sweat daily, drink plenty of water, increase fiber, and have 1-2 bowel movements daily.
15. Avoid sitting too much
Sitting stops the circulation of lipase, the enzyme that breaks down fat in our bodies. Standing will re-engage our fat-burning enzymes. Stand while talking on the phone, watching television, or whenever waiting.
16. Go grain free for 2 weeks
That means no pasta, bread, bagels, muffins, donuts, crackers or chips. Try lettuce wraps for sandwiches, smoothies for breakfast, and extra veggies (instead of rice or potatoes) with meals. After 2 weeks, try a limited approach to grains to maintain any weight lost.
17. Try intermittent fasting
Simply restrict your window of eating to eight hours, allowing for a 16-hour fast. This can be done by skipping dinner a few days a week, or by skipping breakfast, or by adjusting your meals to eat a later breakfast and earlier dinner. See which method works best for you.
18. Strive for quality – a calorie is not a calorie
For example, 100 calories of potato chips and 100 calories of raw almonds will have different biochemical effects in the body. For long term weight management, always put quality first. This is one of the “secret” weight loss tips that people don’t know about.
19.Add a liquid day twice a week
Your days can consist of smoothies, soups, teas, green juices, and water. This helps give the body a digestive rest, cleanses your system, and helps to restore balance.
20. Choose a smaller plate for your meals
To help control portions. Large plates can make a serving of food appear smaller and smaller plates can lead us to misjudge that very same quantity of food as being larger.
