Firstly, I think majority of the girls think they are fat and are not satisfied with their weight. Are you one of them, like me? If so, I can understand how it is so hard to lose weight, especially with all the yummy foods options everywhere. Also to be honest, I am a huge lazy bump; I can sit on a spot all day and not move an inch. Raise your hands if you too are the same!
Getting to the point, losing weight is actually NOT as difficult as we think. Yes! The simplest and easiest trick I can give you is to make changes. Just removing some things and adding something else is going to change your life! For real. Tried and tested.
Here’s a quick guide for all the lazy bums (like me) who want to lose weight, but in an easy peasy way:
1. Start Drinking Water
And by drinking I mean 10-12 glasses of water per day. I cannot tell you how important this is, since water is going to flush out toxins from your body. Extra bonus? Your skin is going to look and feel very awesome. You can add different fruits in your water to change the flavour
2. Bye Bye Fries
I think we all can agree to ‘Fries before guys’, but the truth is you have to say farewell to fried and oily stuff. Also, it is not really a healthy option and so so bad for your skin (hint: Acne)
3. Beat Your Cravings With Healthier Options
Feeling hungry in the middle of the night? Eat carrots, almonds or walnuts. Not only will it satisfy your cravings but you will be getting benefits from them as well.
4. Start Off Your Mornings With Lemon Water
I cannot stress enough on this tip. Just after waking up, have one glass of warm water with lemon and/or honey. Seriously, this is going to make your body so so much better in many ways. It boosts your immune system, flushes out the toxins and keeps your digestive system up and working.
5. Have A Cheat-Day
Well we all get tired of healthy eating once in a while, don’t we? Keep one day in a week as your cheat day. Eat one or two cheat meal. You have to lose weight, but at a normal pace and cheating once in a while is going to help you from getting bored.
In one jug of water, add some cucumber and lemon slices and some mint leaves. Let it sit overnight and drink this water the next day. This is just going to boost the weight loss. Can’t do it? Just add lemon in your glass, whenever you drink water.
7. Say Yes To Fruits And Veggies
Yes, yes and yes! Add more of these healthier alternatives. Eat them raw.
8. Exercise . . . A Little
Exercise or physical activity is very important to burn away the fat. Since we are talking about beginner level here, let’s just focus on MOVING. Have stairs at home? Just go up and down 2-3 times. See, this is the most difficult part for any lazy girl. Love dancing? That is perfect. Make sure to dance on at least 2 or 3 songs daily! This is equal to doing a cardio workout and so much fun too!
9. Sleep Early, Wake-Up Early
It is important to keep your routine healthy and well, so do not forget that.
Keep in mind that you are at level one so start by making small changes. Swap your biscuits with almonds and your sodas with milk. Rigorous diet only makes things worse.
Start with achievable goals and do not push yourself hard – When it starts to get hard, we often lose motivation and end up gaining weight again. Seriously all you have to do is stop a few things and add some. It is very basic and simple and all you need is a little bit of will power. Getting in shape is just a reward. Start with small goals like 4-5 kgs and then build up more.
Hope these tips work well for you. #HappyLosing
