Lose Weight Naturally

You hear the same old weight loss tips over and over again: “Eat well and exercise.” Isn’t there more to it? Indeed there is! We reveal proven diet tips and fitness tips to lose weight, keep it off and stay healthy and motivated.

  • Eat Breakfast Everyday – One habit that’s common to many people who have lost weight and kept it off is eating breakfast every day.
  • Close Kitchen at Night – Establish a time when you will stop eating so you won’t give in to the last-night munchies.
  • Choose Liquid Calories Wisely – Satisfy your thirst with water, sparkling water with citrus, skim or low-fat milk, or small portions of 100% fruit juice.
  • Eat More Produce – Eating lots of low calorie high volume fruits and vegetables crowds out other foods that are higher in fats and calories.
  • Go for the Grain – Choose whole wheat breads and pastas, brown rice, bran flakes, popcorn, and whole-rye crackers.
  • Control Your Environments – Before going back for more food, wait at least 15 minutes and have a big glass of water.
  • Trim Portions – Pull out the measuring cups to get a handle on your usual portion sizes, and work on pairing them down.
  • Add More Steps – Get yourself a pedometer and gradually add more steps will you reach 10,000 per day.
  • Have Protein at Every Meal and Snack – Try low-fat yogurt, small portions of nuts, peanut butter, eggs, beans, or lean meats.
  • Switch to Lighter Alternatives – Whenever you can, use the low-fat versions of salad dressings, mayonnaise, dairy products, and other products.

Listen to your body. If something doesn’t feel right-you experience muscle cramping, develop chest pains, become overly fatigued or winded, feel thirsty, lightheaded or dizzy stop and, check it out. If rest doesn’t seem to relieve your concern, talk to your doctor. That way you can catch potential health problems early rather than risk injury and lose all momentum.

      Thank you Francis. I am glad you liked my post. A lot of people use supplements as well to lose weight these days. Those little pills that claim to supercharge your metabolism are tempting, but there’s little evidence that they work. In a review published in May 2012 in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston followed thousands of dieters and found that liquid diets, fad diets, and over-the-counter diet pills were not linked to weight loss. So what worked? Eating less fat, exercising more, using prescription weight loss medication, and joining commercial weight loss programs.

  2. Well articulated Garima. Perfect tips to keep weight in check. I’ve got a smart band to track the activity of work out and steps. And an calorie intake app what pops up the calorie count when you input a dish.

    Eating clean and physical activity will help one in achieving their weight loss goals.

      Yes indeed Manohar. That challenge however is the mind. When you try to lose weight, you’re fighting not only your cravings, but also your own body. Weight loss decreases the hormone leptin, which signals to your brain that you’re full, and increases the hormone ghrelin, which stimulates hunger, Australian researchers found. This hormone imbalance continues long after you succeed at weight loss, making it even harder for you to keep the pounds off, according to the study.

      Thank you Alma. I am glad my posts inspire you. I try to make my posts simple and easy to follow so that it is easily understood. A lot of people ask me how to lose weight and I always take the basic physiology route rather than tell him about some fad diet. I think if we understand and re-build our physiology, we all will be healthy. Thank you for stopping by today.

      According to 2014 researchTrusted Source, most people who search for tips on how to lose weight will come across false or misleading information on weight loss. “Fad” diets and exercise regimens can sometimes be dangerous as they can prevent people from meeting their nutritional needs.
      According to the Centers for Disease Control and PreventionTrusted Source, the safest amount of weight to lose per week is between 1 and 2 pounds. Those who lose much more per week or try fad diets or programs are much more likely to regain weight later on.

      1. There is so much misinformation and fad – plain common sense works every time

        Yes. Today’s celebrity and pop science culture continue to promote myths such as, “sugar causes diabetes;” “wheat is bad for you;” “sugar is an unnecessary part of the human diet;” “soda taxes curb obesity;” and “all-natural supplements are always safe.” Such provocative and simplistic statements are typically based on a nugget of scientific fact but do not consider what truly inspires long-term healthy habits. Yet, few nutritional scientists are willing to speak out against such falsehoods for fear of retribution. Remaining silent does a disservice to our patients, students and the public and allows myths to become fact in the eyes of bureaucrats who influence policies that impact everyone’s freedom of choice.
