There are many ways to lose a lot of weight fast. Weight loss cannot be achieved in a day or two, and we are all impatient whenever it comes to getting the waist line close to the zero figure mark. It’s a process, and your body needs to adapt to the changes that you make to your routine, exercises and to your diet.
1. Get Some Sleep.
Poor sleep is one of the strongest risk factors for weight gain, so taking care of your sleep is important . Sleep not only will normalize your metabolism, which is one of the essential “ingredients” of healthy weight loss, but also, good rest will reduce your stress levels and prevent you from “emotional” eating.
2. Drink Green Tea.
When a recent study compared the metabolic effect of green tea with that of a placebo, researchers found that the green-tea drinkers burned about 70 additional calories in a 24-hour period. If you can believe it, those 70 calories a day add up to a total of 7.3 pounds of fat a year! It’s not magic, it’s science.
3. DO CARDIO 30 MINUTES A DAY.
Every workout that gets your heart rate up will burn calories. But you’ll use more calories if you pick a cardio routine that engages multiple muscles simultaneously, says Wendy Larkin, personal-training manager at Crunch’s Polk Street gym, in San Francisco.
Three to consider: spinning, cardio kickboxing, and boot-camp workouts. Half an hour of each torches 200 to 300 calories while toning up your arms, legs, and core so everything appears sleeker and tighter.
4. Don’t Skip Your Breakfast.
Not only healthy breakfast can give you with the boost of energy in the morning, but also, it will help to keep your hunger at bay later during the day, so that you will snack less. Go for the mix of fresh fruits, protein and whole grains, when preparing your breakfast.
5. After Breakfast Stick to Water.
At breakfast, go ahead and drink orange juice. But throughout the rest of the day, focus on water instead of juice or soda. Research shows that despite the calories, sugary drinks don’t trigger a sense of fullness the way that food does.
6. Watch one less hour of TV.
A study of 76 undergraduate students found the more they watched television, the more often they ate and the more they ate overall. Sacrifice one program and go for a walk instead.
7. Switch to Ordinary Coffee.
A cup of regular coffee with skim milk has just a small fraction of those calories. And when brewed with good beans, it tastes just as great. You can also try non-fat powdered milk in coffee. You’ll get the nutritional benefits of skim milk, which is high in calcium and low in calories.
