There are a lot of weight loss articles out there that delve into complex issues like calorie counting and complex carbs versus simple carbs and after a while all the detailed, and often conflicting, information can leave your head spinning.
These articles can make the whole weight loss process seem so difficult and overwhelming that many people just give up and don’t even try to lose weight.
But having excess weight is bad for your health. It can lead to an increase in blood pressure, which in turn increases your chances of suffering a stroke. It can also lead to high blood sugar (diabetes), high cholesterol and heart disease.
Here are seven simple things you can do to start losing weight. They are easy to do. They take no complex thoughts, no massive amounts of willpower. Anybody can do them. Then once the weight starts coming off, maybe you will have the motivation to make even bigger changes that can lead to even more weight loss.
Tip #1: Eat at the table
Most people these days eat their meals from in front of the TV or computer. This is bad because you can go into a trance of sorts while watching the TV or computer and end up eating way more than you would have at the table.
Tip #2: Eat slowly
It actually takes a while for the stomach to signal your brain that it is full. By eating slower you will consume less “unnecessary” food. Eat slowly, chew thoroughly and really taste your food. Eat too fast and you will strain your stomach and intestines and possibly create uncomfortable indigestion, bloating and cramps.
Tip #3: Drink less while you eat
Drinking more than 4 ounces of liquid with a meal dilutes stomach acid and digestive enzymes causing you not to digest your food well. Instead drink water 30 minutes before a meal – this will also help you feel fuller so you will eat less.
Tip #4: Eat while relaxed
If you eat while you are tired, upset or stressed can lead to improper digestion of food which can lead to more fat being stored on your body.
Tip #5: Eat your heaviest meal earlier
That’s right, don’t save your heaviest meal for dinner, instead eat a heavier lunch and a light meal at dinner time. This will allow you to more easily digest your food in the evening – having digestion finished before going to bed allows for optimum cellular cleansing and rebuilding during sleep.
Tip #6: Graze instead of gorge
Start eating more smaller meals and less big meals. Eating smaller meals frequently throughout the day helps keep blood sugar levels steady and ensures that you have good energy all day long.
Tip #7: Start listening to your body
Ask yourself if you are really hungry, or have a glass of water to see if you are thirsty instead of hungry. Many hunger pangs are caused by thirst instead of actual hunger. By listening to your body and eating when you are really hungry instead of when it’s the time that you normally eat can lead to significant weight loss.
Tip #8: Try this odd “carb trick” that burns up to 1 pound per day.
If you’re like most women trying to lose weight… you diet, you count calories, you tear up the treadmill, and…nothing.
That’s how 40-year-old Carly Donovan, an overweight mother with prediabetes was feeling…
She did “everything right” and never lost an inch.
Until she stumbled on this strange “carb-pairing” trick and burned away an unheard of 22lbs pounds in just 13 days.
And because of this one simple shift in her eating, she shed pounds and inches from her body without starving herself and without a lick of exercise!
With the same “carb-pairing” trick Carly dropped a total of 37lbs in the FIRST month and she shocked her doctor by completely reversing ALL pre-diabetes symptoms!
