Natural Weight Loss Tips
Staying lean doesn’t just boost your self-confidence. It also keeps you healthy. But losing weight using unsafe methods can do you more harm than good. On this article, let’s talk about some of the best ways to burn stubborn fats without putting your health at risk!
Engage in Weight Training
There’s no doubt that exercising is the best strategy to lose excess fats. But many people think that regular exercising is a big pain in the bottom especially if you are not really into it. But it really is essential in order to lose weight faster. Weight training may be a better choice than aerobics if you’re looking to burn fat, but do speak to our experts here at Core Health to find out more.
Be a Slow Eater
Science was able to prove that by eating slower than usual, you can significantly reduce your weight. If you devour your food quickly, your brain may find it hard to measure your food consumption and recognise that your stomach is already full. Hence, you tend to eat more.
Dine Out Less Often
Fast food is not a good option if you are trying to lose weight. Remember, they are high in calories, sodium, and sugar which all promote fat production and storage. If you’re dining out, look for healthier menus such as green salad and leaner meat rather than the greasy burger, fatty fries and sugary pastries.
Don’t Be Fooled by the Word ‘Diet’
Many food products and fizzy drinks are so labelled to be a good choice for dieters. Some boast of having no sugar (although they taste too sweet!). Well, these foods usually contain artificial sweeteners that have been shown to cause brain cancer and promote obesity. So watch out for these diet sodas and similar stuff, they won’t really help you lose weight at all.
Also psychologically, the word DIET suggests starvation to your subconscious mind. So that part of your mind triggers a self preservation mechanism which can actually cause the body to start storing fats… without you even knowing what it’s doing.
Sip Green Tea
Green tea is highly regarded for its amazing health benefits. And you probably heard about its weight loss effects, especially now that many celebrities are on green tea, claiming it helps them stay lean. Well, that’s no hype! Green tea is scientifically proven to promote fat loss in several ways. First, it improves metabolism. Second, it suppresses appetite. Third, green tea aids in the burning of fats!
Low-Fat Diet May Not Be the Thing
Most products that are said to be ‘low in fat’ contain artificial sweeteners that promote obesity. A diet rich in ‘healthy’ fats, such as omega-3 fatty acids and monounsaturated fats is more likely to help you burn those stubborn fats than simply focusing on the ‘low fat’ diet. Good sources of healthy fats are fish, olive oil, canola oil, and flaxseeds.
Get Your Regular Dose of Niacin
Vitamin B3, or niacin, plays a critical role in fat loss. Niacin can be found in plenty of foods, such as yeast extract spread (marmite), fish, liver, peanuts, veal, chicken, and sundried tomatoes.
Cut Back on Sugar
High consumption of sugar has been linked to obesity, diabetes and heart disease. Sugary foods are also high in calories. Just a piece of glazed donut for instance, already contains whopping 255 calories! Yes, that’s basically enough to ruin your diet.
Consume More Fibre
Your gut needs fibre to properly digest food and promote metabolism. Also, getting enough fibre makes you feel full a lot longer and keeps your energy levels high. To boost your fibre intake, eat more of whole grain pastries than white breads, brown rice, beans, fruits and vegetables.
Fill Your Diet with Herbs
Cayenne, turmeric, bitter orange, flaxseed, and ginger are just few of the many herbs that have fat-burning effects. Adding them on your daily diet can certainly cut your risk of obesity.
Have a Good Night Sleep
Quality sleep is essential in maintaining a lean body. Getting enough sleep is necessary to maintain your hormonal levels – a critical factor for fat loss. Studies reveal that people who lack sleep are more likely to become overweight than those who enjoy quality sleep.
