As an online writer, I'm aware that losing weight means making some sacrifices. And I searched the Internet to find some tips and tricks that can help you break your goal down into easily doable steps.
Always carry a bottle of waterIt’s very crucial to stay hydrated for the sake of your beauty, your health and overall wellbeing. In addition to keeping your skin wrinkle-free for longer, drinking enough water can provide a feeling of fullness and tame hunger. Drinking cold and room temperature water also helps you burn more calories because your body needs more energy to heat up the water for digestion. To make sure you drink enough water throughout the day, take a travel bottle of ice water with you wherever you go.
Brush your teeth before eatingBrushing your teeth properly can make your breath smell good and it can also help you lose weight faster. Brushing for two minutes three times a day can help you burn approximately 5,500 calories and lose about 1.5 pounds a year without even noticing it. And if you like to over-snack in the evenings, brushing your teeth after a meal might keep you from reaching for another cookie because it’s unlikely you’ll want to have to brush and floss your teeth again.
Buy a zesterIf you’re trying to lose weight, it’s better to cut back on salt and soy sauce, but there are lots of much healthier ways to make any recipe tastier. Adding some lemon zest to your salad will not only give it a fresh citrus flavor, but may also help you shed some extra pounds. Since lemon peels contain pectin fibre and make you feel fuller for longer, it can help you lose weight faster and slow down fat accumulation.
Invest in a sleep maskLosing weight while you sleep may sound unbelievable, but sleeping in a dark environment can actually help you get closer to your weight loss goals. Trying to get some shut-eye with a light affects the regulation of metabolism, which in turn can increase your risk of weigh gain. And if you don’t have blackout curtains, consider buying a good quality sleep mask that will help you block the light and sleep better.
Use smaller platesSomething as simple as using a smaller plate might help you lose weight, avoid over-eating, and even prevent annoying heartburn. Serving your food on a smaller plate may help you trick your brain and reduce the amount of calories you’re eating.
Make lower-calorie swapsTrying to lose weight doesn’t mean you have to forget about your favorite snacks at once. Making some simple, lower-calorie swaps can help you enjoy delicious meals while keeping your weight under control. If you’re used to beginning your day with a bowl of sugary granola, opt for oatmeal instead. You can add some fruits and honey to it to make it taste just as good.
