Natural Weight Loss Tips...

Post by khankarim516 » Mon Aug 19, 2013 2:24 am

1) Fruits And Vegtables

Fruits and vegetables are very healthy for you. They have a lot of fiber and antioxidants. In addition to this, eating raw fruits and vegetables will make you feel fuller, faster! The amounts of calories that fruit and vegetables have are really low. So be sure to eat plenty of them!

2) Eat In Proportions

Never overfill yourself. Eat until you are satisfied but do not overeat. Remember, you can always pack food up and save it for later. Remember this tip when you got out to eat at a restaurant or fast food!

3) Frequency

Instead of three big meals a day, eat less but more frequently. Doing so will keep your blood sugar levels in check. It will help avoid a calorie overload. Try to eat 5-6 small meals in a day.

4) Better Choices

Avoid fast food and processed food, they have more sodium and fat. You can lose weight just by eating home cooked meals.

5) Be Consistent

Do not jump into eating healthy right away. Allow yourself time to eat some of the foods you really like. A consistent change will give you more hope than a quick change and failure. A slow progression will give you faith about your overall progress.

6) Understand Food Nutrition

Fat free claims on products do not necessarily mean that the product is low in calories. Read the nutrition facts on the label to avoid foods that are high in sugar and fat. Do not be fooled by misleading labels that can be put on any product.

7) Water

Try to drink 8 glasses of water a day. It helps to avoid pop,coffee, and anything else loaded with sugar.

8) Exercise

Exercise for 30 min – 60 minutes each day to burn off calories. This is one great way to lose a lot of body fat.

Thanks! Some of these are great, but some have been discredited by both research and experience.

The idea of eating several small meals a day has lost a lot of support in recent years.

8 glasses of water a day is nonsense. Drink according to thirst! And there's nothing wrong with coffee.

The amount of calories you "burn" with 30-60 minutes of low to moderate intensity exercise is small. To get much benefit in terms of calorie consumption, you need to do intervals of high intensity exercise, high enough to bring on "EPOC" (excess post-exercise oxygen consumption) or "after burn". But in general, to lose weight the diet is the biggest factor. "You can't out-exercise a bad diet."

Exercise as a fat loss method should include 2 things: retention of muscle mass, and calorie burn, net of compensatory appetite increase. If a person simply increases the amount he eats to match his exercise, there will be no weight loss. It's niave to assume that a person can just ignore appetite signals. EPOC may have an effect, but it's what happens to appetite that makes exercise effective. Long slow activity, like walking, or high intensity intervals will blunt appetite relative to moderate cardio.

Great tips to share but I would like to add more points over it like as you depicted in your post to drink 8 glasses of water so I guess its up to your thirst and with this you may try to drink a glass of warm water with a full tablespoon of lemon juice on it would also help to reduce your weight.

Drinking water really help for weight loss.
The fact is study based.

I may not allowed to post any link to the study so here it is:-

1- Drinking little more water than your body actually require will increase the metabolism process. And a good metabolism means more calorie burn.

2- Drinking water before any meal will suppress your appetite. And you will eat less. Again less calorie intake.

Faster calorie burn, or calorie deficit, both results in weight loss.
So drinking water can be a tool for safe and natural weight loss.

Suggestion :- Drink 500 ml water before each meal. That is enough to suppress your hunger cravings and boost metabolism.
