Browse through the next pages to reveal 10 of the best ways that will help you accelerate the weight loss process so that you can stay healthy and happy!
#1 – Eat before eating!
According to a new study, having a bowl of soup before a meal can keep your appetite under control. This could be explained by the fact that soup is usually eaten slowly because it’s hot and needs some time to cool.
By eating slowly, you give your brain, hormones, and stomach enough time to the time spent at waiting for the soup to cool, you have to eat it slowly, giving your brain, your hormones, and your stomach enough time to send a message of being full.
#2 – Eat spicy!
This is great news for those of you who love spicy food! Eating spicy food can offer your metabolism a temporary boost of up to 8 percent. This, in turn, boosts your body’s rate of burning calories. What’s more, researchers have concluded that spicy food makes people slow down while eating, which is pretty beneficial for metabolism.
#3 – Eat healthy snacks
You should eat more throughout the day, except for mealtimes.
During a typical weight-loss routine, people tend to stretch the time between meals. Although it sounds good, waiting until you’re blindly hungry will lead you to eat larger quantities before feeling satisfied.
Moreover, too much hunger will make you eat fast, which is absolutely not recommended. You should rather eat some healthy snacks every few hours. Some of the best snacks include low-fat cheese, whole wheat crackers, sliced apples, almonds, and sunflower seeds.
#4 – Sleep more
Human bodies thrive on good sleep and good food. When you get the needed amount of sleep, your body will be functioning correctly, repairing what needs to be repaired and forgetting what needs to be forgotten. This way you’ll be able to literally be ready for a new day. According to a study, people on a diet consumed 6 percent fewer calories when they slept enough hours.
#5 – Drink more tea
You certainly have heard how important it is to drink eight glasses of water every day. Well, it’s just a fad! In fact, a human body needs to drink when thirsty and to drink just enough, depending on the climate, body weight, etc.
When not thirsty, drink tea instead! Green tea, in particular, has multiple antioxidants and can help you lose weight faster, as well as help protect you against cancer.
#6 – Embrace the color blue
According to research, people were eating less when food was presented on plates with a higher contrast in colors. Also, it was found that people tend to eat 33 percent less food when having their meals in a blue room.
So, you may want to paint your kitchen blue and start choosing your plates carefully if you want to lose weight quickly.
#7 – Stop multitasking
When multitasking, your mind is focused on more than one thing and it keeps moving back and forth between those things, including your thoughts about eating the food in front of you. This means that, while doing or thinking about many subjects at once, it’s easy to forget that you’re on a diet and absentmindedly eat more and more of food or snacks.
#8 – Laugh!
Laughter is an effective medicine indeed. When you laugh, your body gets a small, beneficial aerobic workout. Laughing makes your heart beat faster, which boosts blood circulation in your body. So if you had a really good laugh for about an hour, you’re going to burn nearly the same number of calories as if you had half an hour of weightlifting.
#9 – Sleep in the cold
Believe it or not, you can lose weight by sleeping in the cold! In fact, this way, your body will start burning the fat stored in the stomach area to keep you warm. It was found that individuals who slept in a room temperature of about 66 degrees could burn the most calories compared to those who slept in rooms with different higher temperatures.
#10 – Switch off the lights
According to researchers from Ohio State University, sitting in a dark room or staying in dark places can make your body lighter. This is probably similar to how your sleep quality, as well as overall health, can be negatively affected if you slept with the lights on.
Well, after all, the gym is not all you need to lose weight and stay fit!
