Most of the people tried many diets in their life but probably failed to reach their goal. That’s why we collected some tips and tricks that will blend into your life style and you might lose weight without even noticing.
It is important to say that you have to consult with a doctor before making radical changes in your diet and that you can’t take this article as a medical advice – Ask a professional doctor before changing your diet.
Start Eating Vegetables
If you want to have a healthy life style and lose weight – you have to involve lots of vegetables in you meals. Vegetables are rich in vitamins, enzymes and fibers which help you digest the food better and will make you less hungry.
So, start each meal with some vegetables – it can be a salad or a soup. That way you fill yourself before getting to the main course and you will eat less empty calories.
Vegetables can be a great healthy snack between meals if you feel hungry in the middle of the day.
Eat Lean Protein
Studies shows that increasing your protein intake can help you burn extra 80-100 calories per day. So if you add healthy protein to each meal, you will get full and it will help you build muscle more easily.
Other study showed that people who ate enough protein each day, consumed about 440 less calories per day.
Great source of protein can be – Chicken, Salmon, Shrimps, Soy Beans and Eggs.
*Note that consuming too much protein can be harmful – consult a doctor.
Don’t Be Afraid Of Carbs
Every time you start a diet you probably try to avoid carbs at any cost… It doesn’t have to be that way!
The secret is to consume the right carbs at the right amount. Aim for carbs that are full in fibers such as quinoa, bulgur and brown bread.
Have A Cheat Day
You have to develop the right mindset – This is a Marathon, not a Sprint!
You will see results if you keep doing it for as long as possible. This should be a lifestyle, not a 30-day diet.
So in order to keep it up, have a cheat day once a week – you will have one meal to eat anything you desire without thinking about the calories.
This will help you keep on going and achieving your goals.
Workout When You Can
Working out will help you burn more calories and will help you build muscle for better results.
It also helps you stay in the right mindset of winning and achieving.
It doesn’t have to be a 2-hour workout in the gym, you can go for a 45 minutes walk in the morning.
