5 Ways to Lose Weight Without Punishing Yourself

Lose Weight

Losing weight has always remained a major concern between people who want to live a healthy life but are troubled by their irresistible eating habits and lack of motivation for extreme measures. People have invested money and time in workouts for losing calories, but they also had to deal with a lot of pain in the process which is not worth the slow results. To lose weight, you do not have to stress your body or limit your taste buds. With minor changes in your lifestyle, you can accomplish significant results in shorter periods with ease. Here are the ten ways to lose weight without punishing yourself.

Add more food

Add more food

Removing food from your diet is not always a healthier option. Why should you cut down on food choices when you can add more to get better results? Add more fruits like oranges, grapes and green vegetables into your diet to get better chances in your physique.

Be mindful of eating

Practice your eating habits and form the right methods of eating food. People do not take care of how they are eating, which also affects their body. Chewing food properly is the simplest thing that people forget to do. Find a comfortable place or eat and maintain the right posture at the table. Avoid any distractions, such as TV, the internet, or newspaper while eating. Take time to eat and chew the food properly so that your stomach does not have to struggle. Choose the food which can keep you full and satisfied for hours.

Protein for breakfast

Make a protein-based diet for breakfast as you will need it to keep your body energized through the day without feeling starved. Eating protein for breakfast can keep your hormones working properly for hours without the need to eat. Some of the high protein foods include eggs, burritos, oats, protein shake, turkey sausage and more.

Eat more fibre

 
Eating more fibre can also give you the feeling of fullness as the fibre takes time to digest in the small intestines. Sugar and starch get digested the quickest. Including plenty of fibre in the diet will make you feel full and help in reducing weight. Some of the foods with high fibre include pulses, whole-grain cereals, pasta, nuts, chicken breast, and many fruits and vegetables.

Sleep well

Sleeping well is also important in maintaining good health and reducing weight. According to the studies, getting less than 5-6 hours of sleep can be a factor for increased obesity. Poor sleeping habits can slow down the digestive process when the body converts calories to energy, known as metabolism. When the body is not making metabolism, it is stored as unused energy which becomes the fat. You will not be able to stay active through the day due to improper sleep which will make you lazier.

More Protein Might be What You Need

Want a diet program offering a higher protein percentage than the USDA Food Pyramid? Then you’ve come to the right place. The following popular plans — like the Atkins Diet, Zone and Ann Louise Gittleman’s Two-Week Fat Flush — all do just that.

Generally speaking, their pros and cons stack up like this:

Pros

High satiety factor
Broad selection of good-tasting foods, typically
Weight loss — burns body fat, not carbs
Improved blood profiles, potentially
Improved skin, hair & nails, since toxins are flushed

Cons

Too low in carbs
Low in calcium
Higher protein diets may strain the liver
Some are more complicated than others
Some restrict vegetables & fruit

Much success!

The Atkins Diet
Since carbohydrates are the body’s primary energy source, a high-carb diet means the body hardly uses its backup fuel system: body fat. That’s why the Atkins diet (a ketogenic diet) restricts processed or refined carbohydrates — such as high-sugar foods, bread, pasta, cereal, juices and high-sugar/starchy fruits and vegetables — and allows unlimited amounts of protein.

Ann Louise Gittleman’s Two-Week Fat Flush Diet
The American lifestyle is riddled with constant interruptions to our body’s detoxification process. Highly refined foods, nitrates, hormones and preservatives along with environmental xenohormones, caffeine, alcohol, the Pill, overuse of antibiotics, over-the-counter drugs, smog, secondhand smoke and even the metabolic residue from food all get in the way. Which is why Gittleman has been a longtime believer in detoxification as the missing link to health and vitality.

The Zone
The Zone diet is a life-long strategy to maintain hormonal balance, based on a 40/30/30 ratio of carbohydrates/protein/fat. According to “Zone logic,” the hormone insulin makes and keeps us fat. A meal’s protein-to-carbohydrate balance can dramatically influence insulin production as well as define how well a dieter can control insulin in the Zone for the following four to five hours.
