There are several natural methods that have actually been proven to work. Here are 10 easy ways to lose weight naturally.
1. Add Protein to Your Diet
Protein is the king of all nutrients. Your body burns calories when digesting and metabolizing the protein you eat, so a high-protein diet can boost metabolism by up to 80-100 calories per day.
Something as simple as eating a high-protein breakfast (like eggs) can have a powerful effect.
2. Eat Whole Food
Base your diet on whole, single ingredient food and by doing this you can eliminate the vast majority of added sugar, added fat and processed food.
Whole foods are naturally very filling and making it lot easier to keep within healthy calorie limits. It also provides your body with the many essential nutrients that it needs to function properly. Weight loss often follows as a natural “side effect” of eating whole foods.
3. Drink Water
It is true that drinking water can help with weight loss. Drinking 0.5 liters of water may increase the calories you burn by 24-30% for an hour afterward.
Drinking water before meals may also lead to reduced calorie intake, especially for middle-aged and older people. Water is very good for weight loss when it replaces other beverages that are high in calories and sugar.
4. Drink Green Tea
Green tea is loaded with antioxidants and it has many benefits, such as fat burning and weight loss. It helps to increase energy expenditure by 4% and increase selective fat burning upto 17%, especially belly fat.
Matcha Green Tea is a variety of powered green tea that may have been more powerful health benefits than regular green tea.
5. Eat more fruits and vegetables
Fruits and vegetables are very healthy. They are high in water, nutrients and fiber. They usually have very low energy density and this makes it possible to eat large servings without consuming too many calories.
Studies have shown that people who eat more fruits and vegetables tend to weigh less.
6. Eat More Slowly
Faster eater are much more likely to become obese, compared to those who eat more slowly. IF you eat too fast, you may eat way too many calories before your body even realizes that you are full.
Chewing more slowly may help you eat fewer calories and increase the production of hormones that are likely to weight loss.
7. Supplement With Glucomannan
Glucomannan is one of several weight loss pills that has been proven to work. Glucomannan is a water-soluble polysaccharide that is considered a dietary fiber. It comes comes from the roots of the konjac plant, also known as the elephant yam.
Glucomannan is low in calories, takes up space in the stomach and delays stomach emptying. It also reduces the absorption of protein and fat, and feeds the beneficial gut bacteria.
8. Get Enough Sleep
Getting enough sleep is incredibly important for weight loss, as well as to prevent future weight gain.
Sleep deprivation disrupts the daily fluctuations in appetite hormones, leading to poor appetite regulation.
9. Do Cardio
Doing cardio — whether it is jogging, running, cycling, power walking or hiking — is a great way to burn calories and improve both mental and physical health.
Cardio has been shown to improve many risk factors for heart disease. It can also help reduce body weight.
10. A Low-Carb Diet
Many studies have shown that low-carb diets are very effective for weight loss.
Limiting carbs and eating more fat and protein reduces your appetite and helps you eat fewer calories.This can result in weight loss that is up to 3 times greater than that from a standard low-fat diet.
A low-carb diet can also improve many risk factors for disease.
