Want To Lose Weight? Try These 5 Variations In Your Eating Habits For Weight Loss

Do you want to lose weight? Have you tried all possible things but failed to achieve weight loss naturally?

Obesity is a plague spreading across the world. Thanks to modern lifestyle! Almost everyone wants to shed those extra kilos which are responsible for many diseases and lower self-esteem. Weight loss industry is also growing on large scale. Business brains have spread a net to make you slim. Many of us have been trapped in this net and tend to spend thousands of bucks to have a perfect body. But, result is zero or negligible. Sometimes, you can get temporary result but after a while weight will bounce back. Hence the goal should be to achieve a healthy body than a perfect looking body and this happens when you love your body and get your eating habits right.

So, what is the solution? Losing weight is not very difficult if you are consistent. Change your eating habits to get a well toned healthier body. Try these 5 variants in your eating habits to lose weight.

 

Start early

Are you too busy that you don’t get time for breakfast? Or you don’t feel like eating. According to many dietitians, you should eat after half an hour of waking up. Hold on, don’t get panic! I am not telling you to eat a ton of food. Just a single fruit will work for you. So, start your day with a fruit or warm lemon water with a teaspoon of honey. Eating early will boost your metabolism. Hence, weight loss is inevitable.

Stay hydrated 

Water is one of the most important factor to make you slim. If you don’t like water drink flavored water (jeera water or ajwain water) or juices or smoothies but without sugar. Drink coffee or tea, whatever suits you, but never in the empty stomach. Try to drink water every hour during day time.

Chew slowly

Don’t eat in a hurry. Relish the taste in each bite. Chew your food slowly. It will make you more satisfied and satiated. Fast eaters generally consume more calories than required. Limit your portion by using smaller plates. Take your time for eating meals. Don’t be workaholic while eating; you may eat more than you need. So, if you are trying to lose weight, pay attention to it.

Increase protein in your diet

If you really want to lose weight then you will have to increase protein rich food in your diet. You must have heard the phrase “everything comes with a price“. Same applies here if you want to lose your weight you will have to reduce carbohydrate intake and increase protein intake. I know it is very difficult to cut down rice from your meal, but moderate intake along with protein rich food will help you.

Eat every two hours

Spread your meal throughout the day. Eat like a baby; after every two hours but the portion should also be like that. It is better to eat 6 small meals rather than eating 3 big meals. Eating less but frequently boost the metabolism. It creates major weight loss among those who follow this routine religiously.
