10 Easy Tips to Lose Weight Naturally at Home
1. Keep a Food Journal
Keeping a food journal will always make you focus on eating a balanced diet. Maybe you drink but occasionally. Maybe you have junk food. Whatever eating habits you have, write it down in your food journal. Many times people come to me saying that I rarely have junk food but when I told them to write it down whenever they have junk food the reality was on the paper! Not only your occasional habits but also your daily meals can be written down in the journal. Your food journal will tell you what food items need to be increased or decreased!
2. Use Smaller Plates
This is something that I personally follow and it does work! I used to have a huge appetite even though I have an athletic body type. But now my appetite has reduced and I follow a balanced diet and I’m happy about that! So start using smaller bowls and plates to follow the portion size control diet. Do not take a big jump from a huge plate to a tiny one. We are not trying to starve ourselves here so please remember that. We are only trying to eat how much our body really needs. That is eating to satisfaction and not eating beyond satisfaction.
3. Avoid Processed Food
Why? Because they take a really long time and a lot of effort to be digested. Plus they cause bloating and gas issues. I know once in a while we all have processed food. But have it in moderation. Write it down in your food journal and keep track of it.
4. Reduce Carbohydrate Intake
If you start following a low carb diet you will see a rapid fat loss. Again do not jump directly from carb contained diet to carb-free diet. You only need to reduce it a little by little. In such a way that carb is included in your meal but in a small quantity, it should not be a major portion of your meal.
5. Increase Protein Intake
Because why not? It not only gives you energy but also reduces crazy cravings! So whenever you go on a low carb diet slightly increase your protein intake. Protein can be obtained from consuming meat, seafood, and eggs.
6. Eat More Fibre
Not only it helps in keeping your bowels moving in a healthy fashion. But studies show that consuming soluble fiber aids in fat loss especially around the middle section of the body.
7. Consume More Fruits and Veggies
Include more veggies in your lunch and dinner. And whenever you feel hungry snack on a fruit! You might have heard your doctor telling you numerous times to have more fruits and veggies. Why? Because it actually helps in maintaining a fit body!
8. Eat Slowly and Mindfully
When we eat faster we tend to complete the meal quickly which sends signals to our brain that we may not have had a proper meal and we may need to get more food on our plate! This is a common habit which I have observed in morbidly obese people. They eat very fast and eat more. So take your time, chew food properly and slowly. Try to avoid eating while watching television. This distracts our mind and digestive system.
9. Keep Healthy Snacks Around
The best and healthiest snack items are nuts! I love munching on nuts or fruits as it calms down a sudden hunger pang. You can also have fruit juices or soups to tame your hunger instantly especially when you are just an hour away to your next meal!
10. Exercise Regularly
Last but not least is to exercise regularly. Of course, this has to be on the list! There are many types of exercises. Pick the one which suits best according to your lifestyle. You can prepare your own personal exercising schedule that works best for you. Note this down along with your everyday meals in the food journal.
Please, don’t try to follow a low carb and low-fat diet at the same time. This is not something that is recommended ever! What works best for everyone is following a portion size and balanced diet while tracking your macros. Eat small portions but increasing the number of portions for a day. And of course, exercising regularly. Let me know what works best for you in the comment section down below! 🙂
