Looking to lose weight the fast and easy way? Well, aren’t we all… In addition to a healthy diet and exercise plan, try these weight loss tips and tricks to shed some pounds and stay on track with your weight loss goals. Better yet, these helpful hints require almost no effort at all.
Six Simple Steps
Did you know? People who only get 5 hours of sleep can gain as many as 2 lbs. in 5 days. They also consume 6% more calories, according to a new study from the University of Colorado, Boulder. So be sure to catch some Z’s in addition to eating right throughout the day.
Start with a hearty breakfast.
Curb those carbs in the morning and opt for a healthy egg-and-veggie scramble or omelette instead. Eating eggs in the morning instead of a bagel equals 264 less calories consumed the rest of the day, says a Saint Louis University study. Its protein can also help you stay fuller.
Don’t hold off on eating lunch.
Some people let their hectic schedule dictate when they eat lunch, but that can affect your weight loss goals. Eating lunch late (after 3 p.m.) can cause you to lose less weight and have a lower insulin sensitivity. Even when eating healthfully, waiting too long to eat can undermine your diet’s effectiveness.
People eat 35% less when eating from a small, individual plate rather than serving themselves from a large platter in the middle of the table.
Remember what you ate.
Thinking back on what you ate for your last meal and how satisfied you were can help you consume 30% less calories at snack time.
Ditch TV watching while eating.
People who eat while watching TV consume 288 more calories per meal on average compared to those who don’t. This is an easy, no-brainer way to eat less.
