Figuring Out Diets

Yes, There’s Such a Thing as Painless Weight Loss If you’re trying so hard to work out and avoid your favorite calorie-filled treats, it may seem like there’s no pain-free way to lose weight. But no! Eating healthier and squeezing in exercise will take some work, but not necessarily of heroic proportions. With just a few changes in your lifestyle, you can pack a big weight loss punch little by little over time. These are top tips on how you can lose weight without that much sweat: 1. More, not less.
The Art of Mastering Diets
Forget deprivation: try adding foods to your diet rather than subtracting them. Adding in will work; taking away won’t. However, remember to keep an eye on your overall calorie consumption.
Where To Start with Fitness and More
2. Stop working out. If you secretly find “workout” a loathsome word, then do away with it. Perhaps the trick to “working out” is to never call it or treat it as such. Ride bikes, hike, play Frisbee, or have great sex. Who says you need to “exercise?” Just burn some calories. Think about it. You’ll even save cash on buying workout machines or equipment, or gym memberships. This approach can actually be more efficient on all fronts. 3. Go for a walk. Walking in great weather’s is a very easy way of keeping fit. A five-minute walk works. If there are no sidewalks in your neighborhood, no problem. Swap your power mower for a push version. Park your vehicle on the opposite side. Get your staff out for a walking meeting. Get off the bus a stop or two earlier. Walk to the mall. Take the stairs. It all adds up. 4. Eat what you love, but get the lighter version. An easy way to control your calories without feeling deprived is to go for the lower-calorie versions of the same foods you love to eat. You won’t notice the difference when you eat a pizza with reduced-fat cheese. They’ll only feel lighter. And as you reduce your fat calories, make sure you boost your fiber intake. Fiber helps you feel satisfied much longer. And remember to lighten the drinks too. Adding a spritz of seltzer to your wine should work. 5. Drink more water! Drinking a glass of water right before a meal will ease your cravings. No matter how hungry you are, it wouldn’t even matter. As water fills up your stomach, your brain gets the signal that you’re not actually as hungry as you believed you were. Then you will eat less. If you’re a compulsive snacker, have a zero or low-calorie drink at hand instead of junk food. Finally, remember that hydration will help ensure that your metabolic processes are all in good order. When your metabolism is doing good, you burn calories more efficiently and lose weight faster.
