Fitness expert Jackie Warner says, “Adding the lemon helps to detoxify the liver and metabolizes fat, so this can speed up metabolism by about 33 percent. That burns about 100 extra calories per day!” Drinking 3 liters of water throughout the day with added lemon can speed up your metabolism and help you lose weight.
2. EAT SLOWLY, AND STOP WHEN YOU’RE FULL
The best way to lose weight is to just eat less, but to make sure you’re doing this the right way. Instead of eating your food quickly, make sure to savor every bite so that you can be fully aware of when you start to get hungry. When you eat too quickly, you may be consuming more than your body needs. When your body starts to feel full, it’s time to stop eating and let your body enjoy what you’ve given it.
3. SAY NO TO DIET FOOD BECAUSE IT ISN’T GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH
There are all kinds of loopholes that will allow companies to sell food as “diet food”, which isn’t always good for your weight loss. Instead, focus on choosing foods based on their own nutritional value. When you buy and eat foods that are good for you and high in nutrients, you’ll lose weight easier than if you just buy “diet foods”. There’s no fast trick to dieting and eating healthy!
4. EAT AT REGULAR MEALTIMES SO YOU DON’T END UP SNACKING
According to fitness expert Nicole Nichols, “So plan for one to two snacks a day as needed, and you’ll likely eat less and avoid binges later.” When you go too long without eating, or think that skipping meals is the way to help lose weight, two things can happen. One, you may be encouraged to overeat later because you’re so hungry, and two, your body may go into starvation mode and preserve more fat just in case you won’t be eating again for a long time. Eating at regular mealtimes can help put your body in the right rhythm it needs to lose weight.
5. DRINK FRESH VEGETABLE JUICE TO REGAIN YOUR HEALTH
Vegetables are good for you, but sometimes we don’t have time to make a meal with all the right veggies. Another alternative is to drink fresh vegetable juice. Not only is it good for you, but it’ll give you the energy that you need to get through the day – and, it tastes great! The founder and owner of Strala yoga studio, Tara Stiles, says, “Cucumber, kale, carrot, ginger…it is so good for you, gives you so much energy, and actually tastes good! The coolest side effect is that I stopped craving sugar and salts! Just like that, without trying. Amazing!”
6. KEEP NUTS ON HAND FOR A HEALTHY SNACK
Raw almonds, cashews or walnuts can help you when you’re in a pinch and are starting to crave a snack during the middle of the day. When you’re on the go and your blood sugar starts to drop, it can be tempting to get an unhealthy snack that can make it hard to keep your weight down. Luckily, raw almonds are the perfect snack: they’re healthy, and they keep your blood sugar up.
7. HAVE PROTEIN WITH EVERY MEAL TO HELP YOU FEEL FULL
Whether you’re a vegetarian, vegan or neither, protein is important to have with every meal. It’ll help keep you feeling full so you’re not tempting to go snacking in between meals or during the middle of the night. For vegan or vegetarian diets, tofu and beans are a good alternative to meat-based proteins.
