  • 1. Healthy Weight Loss Tips The basic principal to lose weight is simple – eat less, exercise more. Though it sounds easy, accomplishing the task is a matter of concern for many. Weight loss programs including exercises and diets can make one exhausted easily. To make the matter worse, there are some people following crash diet plans coupled with rigorous exercises. Such practices usually cause physical or psychological health problem, more than helping you to lose weight. In fact, the focus should be on losing weight in a healthy way for a long-term success. Despite the lucrative ads of the weight-loss management programs claiming to help you shed ten pounds in two weeks, weight loss process will take time and effort. However, the good news is that you can get rid of those unwanted fats with the following healthy weight loss tips: Get your fluid: Thirst is often confused with hunger; as a result, we tend to add up more calories when all the body needs is a glass of water. Remember that the 8 glasses of water per day is bare necessity of our body. And if you want to lose weight fast, it is recommended to have more water. You may even consider adding lemon slices to your water for flavor. Similarly, you may drink fruit flavored tea; but avoid sugar. Following these simple tricks will help in your weight loss program.
  • 2. Don’t overeat: We often eat due to various psychological factors. You tend to eat not because you are hungry, but because you think it will make you feel better. Such eating habit is also known as “emotional eating” and can a major reason for obesity. However, emotional eating never helps to uplift your mood; rather, it will make you feel worse about the extra unnecessary calories that you have consumed. You are more likely to feel guilty for ditching your diet plan. A better and a healthy approach to weight loss is to have portion-controlled meals at frequent intervals. For example, instead of 3 large meals, have 6 small meals comprised of healthy foods. This will help you to fell full, and keep you away from emotional eating. Add healthy foods to your diet: Most people following weight loss programs focus more on what not to eat, instead of concentrating on the healthy foods that help in weight loss. Include more green leafy vegetables, fresh fruits and protein in your diet. Try to take 5-9 servings of vegetables and fruits per day. Fruits and vegetables come with necessary fiber and have a higher percentage of water. Thus, they make your feel full while fighting hunger. If you don’t like raw vegetables, mix them in your food. You may even bake or grill them. In fact, replacing simple carbohydrates with vegetables and snacks with fresh fruits will give a boost to your weight loss program.
  • 3. After-dinner snacks are big no-no: Snacks are the best way to destroy your diet plans and weight loss efforts, especially those taken after dinner. Watching TV with a pack of wafers, chips or biscuits may sound tempting enough, but you will end up consuming a lot of unwanted calories. But if you have a sweet tooth, limit yourself to low-calorie ice cream or cereal bars that come without sugar and fat. A better alternative is a cup of green tea with no calories. Small frequent meals: As mentioned, having small frequent meals will help you to control hunger. We generally tend to overeat if we are too hungry. Thus, it is essential to control the appetite. You can have 5-6 small meals instead of 3 major meals and make sure they are portion controlled. This way, you will consume fewer calories and burn more to lose weight faster.
  • 4. You need to follow a strategic weight loss program including balanced diet plan and exercises. Also, divide the calories your body need in several small portions. Drink lots of water and low caloric drinks before each meal. And replace high calorie snacks with healthy options like fresh fruits, small portion of nuts and dry fruits, yogurt, fat-free milk, cottage cheese, vegetables and herbal tea. These healthy habits will also help you to stay fit, apart from helping you to lose weight.
