Today, the pandemic made it easier for us to gain some extra inches. This is why it’s crucial to take control and get back in shape. There are many ways that help us lose weight and some of them reap super-fast results too!
Six best ways to lose weight fast are:
Eat soluble fiber, protein and healthy fats: The best way to start your weight loss journey is to monitor what you eat. Switch to a diet rich in soluble fiber, protein and healthy fats and ultimately cut down on sugar and trans fats. If you are a picky eater, try arranging small portions of food in a platter, often known as a bento box or a betabox. Such an arrangement makes the consumption of the necessary food easier.
Exercise: Physical activities are of utmost importance if you wish to lose weight. Incorporate 60 mins of cardio and weight training exercises at least three times a week.
Consume caffeine: Exercising will improve your metabolism but why not boost it even more with some coffee, tea or green tea? Caffeine helps improving your metabolism when not consumed on regular basis.
Make dancing a hobby: What is better than a fun hobby that not only makes you feel liberated but also helps you lose weight quickly? Make some time to dance. The more you move, the more calories you burn, the faster you lose.
Get enough sleep: Poor sleep leads to increased appetite due to higher levels of your hunger hormone Ghrelin. Make sure you get at least 7 hours of sleep every day. This will increase your satiety hormone and allow your body to function better. It will also keep you energized throughout the day to perform the required activities with a fresh mind.
Eliminate junk: Make it a habit to avoid fried food, fizzy sugary drinks, any other processed food. As sad as it may sound, if you are serious to lose weight fast, you need to completely let go off any junk food. Try not to cheat, but if you have to, make it once a week only!
To conclude, a good diet plan and regular exercise are key to a healthy body weight and reduced fat percentage. Along with the recommendations mentioned above, make sure you take care of your stress levels… mental wellness plays an essential role in weight loss.Written by Lauren Jacobsen, Nutrition Director
