Lose Weight with These Quick Tips

Lose Weight with These Quick Tips

Most people are unhappy with their weight. If you ask anyone out on the street, they will probably tell you that they wish they were anywhere from 5-20 pounds thinner.

The most common thought that comes to mind when you’re trying to shed the pounds is, "What is the quickest way to lose weight?" There are many weight loss programs that claim to give you results right away, but there is no 'quick and easy' fix to everyone's weight loss woes.

Here are a few tried and true tips to help speed up the weight loss process

Drink lots of water-

Usually, when people are trying to lose weight in a pinch, they become tempted to sweat it out, slashing their water intake in half. This is a bad idea because you’re not really losing any weight. The number on the scale will go down, but that’s just water weight. You’ll gain most, if not all of the weight back in a few days.

Hit that snooze button-

It’s hard to make good, healthy choices when we’re sleep deprived. If you’re not getting your beauty sleep, your body will mostly crave junk food late at night when you should be in bed—and the longer you stay awake, the more likely you will be to give into temptation and cut yourself another piece of sugary, chocolaty cake.

Chew Gum-

If you’re feeling tempted to binge on junk food, pop a piece of gum in your mouth. Most individual pieces of gum contain less than five calories and it takes much more than five calories to chew a stick of gum.

Discipline yourself-

When you are trying to lose weight quickly, it is important to establish a certain set of rules that you plan to follow every day:

      - If it's after 8 p.m., it's too late (to eat)

      - Do 100 crunches before getting into the shower

      - No chocolate on Monday’s, Wednesday’s, or Fridays

Write these rules down somewhere where you will see them every day. A great place to write your list of rules is on your bathroom mirror with an Expo marker. When you set up rules like this, you are subconsciously placing the thought into the back of your mind where it will eventually become a habit.

Eat healthy-

If you need to lose weight right away and you’re looking for something fast and convenient without the hassle of frequenting the grocery store, bistroMD offers a diet delivery program that can help you successfully shed the pounds.
